Child rights and you
Policy Makers in India are proposing a 'Paternity Benefit Bill' for consideration in the next session of Parliament to grant paid paternity leaves
In a scenario where as per Law Commission of India itself, 68% of the abducting parents are mothers, out of which 54% had gone home to a country in which they held citizenship; we wonder, how come India even think of not signing Hague Convention, that 98 countries, including Pakistan and Sri Lanka have signed.
We want a unified law, as there should be equal parenting opportunities for the father and the mother. There should be neutrality in custody cases. The family court system should be changed as children suffer when they are not given the chance to meet a non-custodian parent.
Children need space to learn and grow on their own. Research shows children with helicopter parents may be less capable of dealing with demands of growing up.
