Growing Up Alone: The Hidden Cost of Poverty
Maggie Black (au)
The 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child attaches key importance to the family’s role in nurturing & raising the child. The child’s interests are best served by staying with the family, even in times of war or misfortune, unless the home is abusive. Despite this widely accepted principle, increasing numbers of children are growing up alone. The cause of this epidemic is the acute poverty endured by millions of families in Africa, Asia, Latin Amer. & Central & Eastern Europe -- reinforced by causes such as warfare & the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Contents: What is the scale of the problem?; Experiencing growing up alone; Bolstering families; Programs for family well-being; Speaking out for children growing up alone; & A UK agenda for action. Illustrations.
