Declaration of the Rights of the Child
Proclaimed by General Assembly resolution 1386(XIV) of 20 November
Principle 1
The child shall enjoy all the rights set forth in this Declaration. Every child, without any exception whatsoever, shall be entitled to these rights, without distinction or discrimination on account of race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status, whether of himself or of his family.
Principle 2
The child shall enjoy special protection, and shall be given opportunities and facilities, by law and by other means, to enable him to develop physically, mentally, morally, spiritually and socially in a healthy and normal manner and in conditions of freedom and dignity. In the enactment of laws for this purpose, the best interests of the child shall be the paramount consideration.
Principle 3
The child shall be entitled from his birth to a name and a nationality.
Principle 4
The child shall enjoy the benefits of social security. He shall be entitled to grow and develop in health; to this end, special care and protection shall be provided both to him and to his mother, including adequate pre-natal and post-natal care. The child shall have the right to adequate nutrition, housing, recreation and medical services.
Principle 5
The child who is physically, mentally or socially handicapped shall be given the special treatment, education and care required by his particular condition.
Principle 6
The child, for the full and harmonious development of his personality, needs love and understanding. He shall, wherever possible, grow up in the care and under the responsibility of his parents, and, in any case, in an atmosphere of affection and of moral and material security; a child of tender years shall not, save in exceptional circumstances, be separated from his mother. Society and the public authorities shall have the duty to extend particular care to children without a family and to those without adequate means of support. Payment of State and other assistance towards the maintenance of children of large families is desirable.
Principle 7
The child is entitled to receive education, which shall be free and compulsory, at least in the elementary stages. He shall be given an education which will promote his general culture and enable him, on a basis of equal opportunity, to develop his abilities, his individual judgement, and his sense of moral and social responsibility, and to become a useful member of society.
The best interests of the child shall be the guiding principle of those responsible for his education and guidance; that responsibility lies in the first place with his parents.
The child shall have full opportunity for play and recreation, which should be directed to the same purposes as education; society and the public authorities shall endeavour to promote the enjoyment of this right.
Principle 8
The child shall in all circumstances be among the first to receive protection and relief.
Principle 9
The child shall be protected against all forms of neglect, cruelty and exploitation. He shall not be the subject of traffic, in any form.
The child shall not be admitted to employment before an appropriate minimum age; he shall in no case be caused or permitted to engage in any occupation or employment which would prejudice his health or education, or interfere with his physical, mental or moral development.
Principle 10
The child shall be protected from practices which may foster racial, religious and any other form of discrimination. He shall be brought up in a spirit of understanding, tolerance, friendship among peoples, peace and universal brotherhood, and in full consciousness that his energy and talents should be devoted to the service of his fellow men.

She said she was a doctor from Venezuela.
She asked me if I had a son.
She asked him if she could help him.
Mary's boss told her not to use the office computer for private emails.

I'll ask him where he comes from.
He told me he was from France.
I usually start by asking pupils if I've seen them before.

I was born in Eivissa on March 25, 1966. My mother always said that I was born early; I started walking at nine months and talking at twelve.
I started school at the age of four. The school, which I attended, is not in the same place today.
My little brother was born five years after me. During our childhood we didn’t get on very well, but now everything is different and we are very good friends.
I was growing. When I was sixteen years old, I met my future husband. Obviously, for the first six years he was my boyfriend. We are still married and have two children: a boy of eighteen and a girl of thirteen.
Since 2006, I have been studying at the university. My wish is to become a teacher. I had always wanted to do this but I stopped studying too early. Two years ago, I saw my chance: my children were older and I could take sometime for myself.
These days I am teaching in a school in Sant Antoni. I love the environment and my work with special children and with special situations. Every day is different.
Will I be a good teacher? I dream that I will be a good teacher but I get very scared.
Now I want to finish as soon as possible, but it will be impossible before next June. I guess I will finish in June.
I like to think that next year at this time I will be teaching in a school.
My life will be more stable, secure and I will be working at what I have chosen.

I wish I wasn't bored.
I wish I could pay you.
I wish I had some money.
I wish he would tidy his room from time to time.
I wish I didn't talk so much.
I wish he hadn't died.
I wish I had seen you.
