CHILDREN'S BILL OF RIGHTS

more+
less-

This document lists "rights" of children. It can be edited to suit the client/case. Judges often order inclusion of the list in temporary orders and final orders/decrees. While injunctive terminology can be used, enforcement of the terms in contempt is unlikely in that proscribed behavior must be very clear and proof of violations clear also. The main effect of the list is to act as a reality check on the parents and to shame the one or both or others into better behavior. The list can also be used as a checklist when marshaling information from the client about his/her behavior and that of the other parent or significant adult. Last, the list can be used as an offensive tool by a party, where, usually, the proposing party is elbowed out of parenting by the other or the other parent is holier-than-thou about his/her parenting. Of course, if the list is embraced by the parents, it benefits the children.
