Children under the age of 18 have special protection and care under the law. They have a right to basic needs such as food, education and health care, and the right to associate with both parents. Children’s civil rights are also protected and they must be granted freedom from discrimination on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, disability, color, ethnicity, or other characteristics.
