Link to United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child
UNCRC: Article 14 (freedom of thought, belief and religion) Every child has the right to think and believe what they choose and also to practise their religion, as long as they are not stopping other people from enjoying their rights. Governments must respect the rights and responsibilities of parents to guide their child as they grow up.
It is important that we help others, show forgiveness and show acts of kindness, especially during these difficult times. We need to show kindness to everyone (while keeping ourselves safe), even those we don’t always get along with. We can show kindness by treating each other with love and respect, without expecting anything in return. The term ‘Good Samaritan’ today refers to a person who helps others in a random act of kindness. It originated from the Parable of the Good Samaritan, a story that is very familiar to Christians. Please share ‘The Good Samaritan’ story with your child.
