What are'children's rights'?

Children are entitled to basic human rights such as food, health care, a safe home and protection from abuse. However, children are a special case because they cannot always stand up for themselves. They need a special set of rights which takes account of their vulnerability and which ensures that adults take responsibilitiy for their protection and development.
