One of the greatest experiences of maturing is being able to exert one's rights. At the core of this experience is how early we can do that for the individual. Children's' rights are hotly debated, because rights could mean allowing access to way too much information at way too an early age. How does one evaluate that? Should minors have the right to get abortions without parental consent? Should children have full access to sex education as young as possible? Should sexual abstinence be taught in schools? Do girls have way fewer rights than boys? This book explores these various topics, as well as child labor, legal status, and autonomy.
