Theme : HOW CHILDREN RIGHTS CHANGED THROUGH THE HISTORY
———————————————————————- From ancient times children were separate part from peoples comunity.They had exlusive rights and duties , which changed during ages and ages . In diferent nations and diferent groups of people they were diferent too , though the times were the same . Even in the same nation children rights were equally respected , and violated. For example in ancient Egypt one of the pharaohs ordered to kill all male , new-born jewish children , because he thought , thst the jewish (hebrew) people became more powerful than they , egyptians were. According to the Bible , he said unto his people: Behold , the people of Israel are more and mightier than we. And he said , When ye do the office of a midwife to the hebrew women , and see then upon the stools ; if it be a son , then ye shall kill him : but if it be a daugter then she shall live.Of course , it was the roughest breaking of children rights. But in the same country , almost at the same time , small – agged prince Tuthanchathon sat on the the throne . His aunt wanted to occupy the throne herself , that means to break his , as pharaoh_s child_s andthrone heir_s, rights,but this time child_s rights defence worked realy strongly , because Tuthanchathon was an egyptian , not jewish child , and , of course , pharaoh_s son. The same kind of violation of children rights was in Sparta – they killed children too , but this time – for another reason. From five years age spartians took their male children to the military trainings.And if a child was too weak for such trainings , they killed him.It_s a strict breaking of child_s rights , because children can_t chose , what physical or mental shape will they born. But the times were changing , so the attitude towards childrenrights was changing too. Masive and cruel children killing was stopped.Of course , that doesn_t mean , that the violation of child_s rights was stopped too. For example in Midle-ages in Europe parents could hand over their just – born children to abbeys , could chose them any profession they want or even to set up a marriage without asking them. Also children often had to work very hardly , and at work they had to keep up eaqually with adults , otherwise they were punished. But after some hundreds years passed , that kind of kind of child_s neglect had vanished too , and step by step children were admitted to the circle ofall people , who have full rights.
