Children at Risk: Global Views on Challenges Facing Children
Neugebauer, Roger
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n200 p72-79 Jul-Aug 2011
Members of the World Forum community were invited to respond to the question: "What is the most urgent challenge facing young children in your country?" Here are some of their responses. Jamils Richard Achunji Anguaseh mentions that in Cameroon, young children face lots of insecurity, both from health hazards and poor parenting practices. There does not exist any parenting education program to help especially young parents face the challenges of parenting with confidence. Kevin F. W. Thoronka stresses the absence of learning resource materials is one challenge facing Sierra Leone today. Sitting accommodation and school buildings are seldom available. According to Raed Abu Hayyaneh, the most urgent challenge facing young children in Jordan is poverty. Income for families doesn't cover the basic needs.
