Review: "Prompted by the gap between the promise of children's rights and the reality of their continuing denial, Katherine Covell and R. Brian Howe call for change to existing laws, policies and practices. Using the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child as their framework, the authors examine the continuing problems of child poverty, child care, child protection, youth justice and the suppression of children's voices. They challenge us to move from seeing children as parental property to seeing children as independent bearers of rights." "In The Challenge of Children's Rights for Canada, Canada's obligations and the rights of children are examined from the perspectives of research and development in the fields of developmental psychology, developmental neuroscience, law and family policy." "This book will be of interest to academics, policy-makers and anyone who cares about children and about taking children's rights seriously."--Jacket.
