Treasure of life is childhood and rest is course of run to meet the destiny. An individual’s personality is total sum of his/her childhood experiences and temperaments. It is very important to preserve the rights of children to give them a fear free and safe environment. Children are particularly vulnerable and sometimes simply do not know how to recognize unacceptable behaviours.
According to WHO
''Child abuse or maltreatment constitutes all forms of physical and/or emotional ill-treatment, sexual abuse, neglect or negligent treatment or commercial or other exploitation, resulting in actual or potential harm to the child's health, survival, development or dignity in the context of a relationship of responsibility, trust or power.’’
Children are like wet cement whatever falls on them makes a permanent impression. Child abuse is one of the major issue that is very difficult to talk about because it’s surrounded by guilt and shame and so on, but us avoiding that issue doesn't help those kids in need out there who need support.Children constitute the most important and vulnerable segment of our population. They are truly the foundation of our nation, hence the focus of every citizen should be to promote their health and safeguard their interest. “A healthy child is a sure future” is one of the themes of WHO. Health children grow to become healthy adults, who are strong both in body and mind.
We live in developing country. What we are doing in present, will reflect in future as result. We can claim us Young India; our majority of population is young and accepting challenges to be a Developed India.
Development of an individual or Nation follow some principles like sequence, continuity, comprehensiveness … etc, it is very much essential to be comprehensive in every aspect. If they are vital, emphasis must be given to them.
Healthy children will be healthy young in future, so we can say Healthy Children Wealthy Nation. The matter is, in what extent our children are healthy? Are they healthy? If Yes! Than we can claim our future of nation, it must be Healthy. Surprisingly we left the important aspect of our society for current issues.
How can be a Nation become healthy without securing good health of our children? We talk about developmental policies for country; we focus on so many aspects but do not touch the future of our nation more. By this we can do better in present. But the long lasting prudential results can be achieved by giving emphasis on our children.
