Issues in Child Development in Nigeria

Barr. BerthaNnenna Otunta, Joy N. Ezeilo

This research work focused on issues in child development in Nigeria. The study reviewed definitional issues in child development, looking at who a child is, and what makes one a child using international children’s right laws and Nigeria in particular. The study also mentioned that children should be seen as rights-possessors and not just as objects of adult control and domination and that children welfare is not limited to the physical, but is wholesome, including religious/spiritual welfare, educational welfare, emotional welfare and any other form of welfare a child can get to enhance development. The study also stated that the government should bring up good children right policies that will protect the interests of children.
