Issues in Child Development in Nigeria

Barr. BerthaNnenna Otunta | Joy N. Ezeilo

Abstract: 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.
