Time for another YouTube video. This one from PanKwake…not PranKwake.
A timely reminder…ALL opinions expressed in these videos are PanKwake’s.
Under the UNCRC (United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child)…
Article 13 (freedom of expression)
Every child must be free to express their thoughts and opinions and to access all kinds of information, as long as it is within the law.
Of course, I am certain that some misguided proponents of the Rights of the Child may cite:
Article 36 (other forms of exploitation)
Governments must protect children from all other forms of exploitation, for example the exploitation of children for political activities, by the media or for medical research.
Article 16 (right to privacy)
Every child has the right to privacy. The law should protect the child’s private, family and home life, including protecting children from unlawful attacks that harm their reputation.
I would point them to…
Article 5 (parental guidance and a child’s evolving capacities)
Governments must respect the rights and responsibilities of parents and carers to provide guidance and direction to their child as they grow up, so that they fully enjoy their rights. This must be done in a way that recognises the child’s increasing capacity to make their own choices.
I would point them to 100 Days of #RadiCoolUnschooling – Day 1 for a full account of just how active and fully informed a participant PanKwake is in all this. It truly is HER voice and mission. I only enable and empower her.
So without further ado…PanKwake’s voice…
