Children of the world - in the mirror of this year's world exhibition of photography. The year 1979 was determined by the United Nations "Year of the child". The world should be child-friendly. There are more than enough reasons. Currently, 1.3 billion children live on the Earth. Approximately half of them suffers from a lack of anything: poor nutrition and care, diseases, lack of affection and love.
This mirror of Germany reported on the children in the Federal Republic. Lacking either food or medical care. But also for the more than 12 million German children under the age of 15 is the "international year of the child" of importance. The world is designed by adults and governed. Because the special rights and needs of children remain often unconsidered.
Is the federal child-friendly? What does the State for the children? Questions to answer this survey. We will see that the child will be taken seriously, its Habitat in family, society and the State expanded and is legally protected.
A new law has greatly improved the position of the child. So, it has by the age of 14 to a legal say in his education and career choices. And after a divorce of the parents can determine at what parent wants to live it.
Still, an ideal world of the children nowhere there. What opportunities does this girl? How helps the society the children prepare for life?
Children in the Federal Republic. How do they respond to the Habitat, adults give them?
The big problem: If father and mother work, the children stay left to themselves on the day. Where To find her warmth and security, who can To give only a family, children settled here a private At home. They have their own desires. Adults should take them into account. Small Berlin made this model le - a child-like counterculture to the cold functionality of modern housing.
Urban planning and housing set is now more on the needs of children. Children should have their own room. More playgrounds will be built in the sea of houses of German cities. You may not to be functional, to 'reasonable' must be. Otherwise the children do not accept them.
So, children To want to play and romp. Parents know that. So they access either to themselves or helps a child-friendly city. On the edge of large settlements, but also in the cities themselves, they begin to build so-called adventure playgrounds, where desire for movement and imagination of children can develop.
Gradually gone are the days of the old courtyards. Children are entitled to a place where they play, where they can play free of the dangers of the road.
The public care, that this situation will be improved. For example, building owners are obliged recently to set up a playground. This provision shall apply in some States even with retrospective effect, that is to say: behind old tenements facilities need to be built.
Children in the Federal Republic. They pay the price, the calls for a motorized society of prosperity.
The trend of the car just to the humane City: you must make sure that the city also child meets.
Motorists need to be educated to pay more attention to the children on the crowded streets of the Federal Republic. But even the children themselves must be roadworthy. The Federal Republic international occupied a little flattering top spot in traffic accidents of children.
The "traffic Kasper", a puppet show with teaching character, is a widely applied method at an early stage to familiarize children with the hazards of traffic. In most primary schools, traffic education is a compulsory subject. For first-graders turn police officers into puppeteer and easily teach the children the necessary rules of conduct.
The lessons "on the spot", on the street, belongs to the action "Safe school". Most important exercise: how to get safely across the street.
In many schools, street plans are issued on which is the best school. The graders will receive caps and headscarves in signal colours so that they are noticed by motorists in time.
Advanced students practice on transport grounds established for them. Here they are acquainted with the car driver psychology and learn to move on the roads as pedestrians, cyclists or moped riders.
Children in the Federal Republic. How is your health? They can cope with pressure and competition in the schools?
The recurring medical examination is mandatory in all German schools. It also postural defects are found especially in large cities with many students in addition to other defects - a result of missing movement.
Therefore, school sports must be taken seriously. Health is the most important asset.
Regular sports for the development of the child is just as important as any other subject. As in all modern industrial societies the pressure affects in the Federal Republic on the children.
The workload has grown also in German schools. Who achieved only a good school has a chance on a Bachelor or a qualified apprenticeship. Particularly in the secondary schools complain the students about a tougher competition for the better grade.
The comprehensive school, a still hot-debated school experiment in Germany, wants to make learning human and social equality. The students can choose between a variety of mandatory and tilt courses and determine his schooling with the Wei se.
Special care must be taken to the disabled children.
In Germany, there are 300,000 handicaped and disabled children. You need love and understanding. Their life chances must be improved by their integration into the world of the healthy.
Disabled and healthy children are taught in some schools already together. Imaginative assistive devices allow for example blind children to follow the lessons.
Even sports is possible with appropriate assistance. And it is also necessary to raise the self-esteem of the disabled children.
Children in the clinic, in a strange to them, frightening world. Today, we know that a hospital can cause often permanent mental damage in children. The hospital to make it child-friendly one starts now in the Federal Republic. Here, the young patients To find back their familiar environment: colorful walls, who paint themselves, a hospital room, where they must play with their own toys. And the most important: her mother is with them.
Mother or father sleeping next to her child and feed day and night. The experiences in this Munich children's Hospital to prove: If the parents are, the hospital loses many of its terrors for the sick child.
Children in the Federal Republic. In the call of the United Nations "Year of the child", it says children are the most precious wealth of a country. Is this thesis in Germany?
The family is of the Constitution in the Federal Republic under special protection. There are also material support: for example, child allowances and subsidized apartments for large families. Nevertheless, the Federal Republic has one of the lowest birth rates in the world. One reason for the lack of readiness for the child is that many Germans fear a downward by children wealth. Children cost money. Despite child benefits and other subsidies, dieFamilie in the Federal Republic, as well as in any other country - must make sacrifices if she has children.
Anyone like to go on holiday. If you have several children, that is the difficult. Because travel is expensive and unaffordable for some large family with children. But it holiday camps for children and teenagers, are In addition youth hostels, cheap hotels for young people are.
Who must stay at home, should have the experience of his holiday. After this realization, growing is a year after year by cities and municipalities. You come up with a lot, to the dearest children with fun, to compensate for game and entertainment for the lost holiday. , Children in the Federal Republic: this inventory in the "year of the child" shows that the child-friendly world even today Not yet reached. But it also shows that the readiness has grown more turn to the children and to give them those rights to which they are entitled not only in the "year of the child".
