How important is the family for children? How do children cope when parents have to juggle child care, employment and other responsibilities? In this volume these questions, and others, are raised and reflected upon, by children themselves, providing insights for parents and professionals.
When the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) was unanimously approved by the UN General Assembly on November 20, 1989, it was widely heralded as a landmark in children’s advocacy, and provided a useful framework for developing programs and advocating for children’s well-being. However, many children’s programs are still designed with little thought to religious or cultural diversity, even though the importance of culture was highlighted at the convention. Religious Dimensions of Child and Family Life examines the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child from the perspectives of eight of the world’s most-practised religions—Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, North American Native spiritual belief, Judaism, popular Chinese religious practice and Bahá’í. The authors of each article pay special attention to religious moral codes of conduct governing parental behaviour, child-rearing norms and the role of children in spiritual practice. They pinpoint where positive support is provided, but also where the religions criticize or disagree with the ideas of the Convention. When considered in relation to the UN Convention, these ideas provoke a lively discussion.
"Using brief meditations from Pope Francis followed by questions for reflection, [this book] offers insight into how you can create an oasis of joyful love within your own family. Spend a few minutes every day in prayer with Pope Francis, and help your family discover God's plan in which every family member 'feels that God is close and feels loved by him'"--Page 4 of cover.
Without a deeper understanding of poverty as a lived experience in childhood, policies targeted at eradicating child poverty may fail. This book presents an opportunity to understand the issues and concerns that low-income children themselves identify as important.

This volume seeks to examine child and family life from the perspective of various religious traditions in relation to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Special attention is paid to the religions' moral codes of conduct governing parental behaviour, child rearing norms, and the role of children in spiritual practice. Eight of the world's most practised religions are discussed: Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Bahai religion, Chinese popular practice, Hinduism, and North American Native spiritual belief. The purpose is to see where the religions positively support the UNCRC and where they criticize or disagree with the ideas of the Convention. Each religion has very clear notions as to the functioning of the child in the context of the family. When considered in relation to the UN Convention, these ideas provoke a lively discussion.
