Abstract [en]

The essay is made particularistic to children issue in terms of their rights to take part in social and political activities and rights to receive care and protection from the adults. As a critical report, this essay concentrates on different children sociologists, who have written how these rights the children are deemed to claim are important for their better development. Besides, UNCRC, and UN Convention are the organizations, which insist on children’s fundamental rights irrespective of color, sex, race, religion, and ethnicity and recommend these rights to be accepted by the adults. However, this essay discusses education to children, their best interests with regard to what children sociologists and UNCRC and UN Convention say. Coherent it is to say that in the period of globalization, to let children grow in a suitable environment, it is important to reconsider the matters like familialisation, individualization, and established institutionalization. Precise it is that this essay attempts to interpret these matters with as much as information it can accumulate although to image these matters perfectly is a matter of concern.
