Abstract

In the present times protection of children from all kinds of exploitation and abuses has become the main objective of our society. There have been many instances of child exploitation in the form of sexual molestation, child marriage, underfeeding, verbal abuse, child battering, child prostitution, child pornography and child labour which indirectly highlights our society’s own failure to protect our future generations. Child protection is regarded as one of the main responsibility of the government as well as the society and considering the challenges and problems faced by the children. In this article we have specifically written about the various kinds of atrocities faced by children and included a case study, local laws and suggestion on child rights in India. And the aim of this study is to evaluate how effectively the child exploitation can be prevented and to provide the needed directions to the parents and Government about their responsibilities to guarantee the rights and human rights of the child and also to reduce the vulnerability of children in harmful situations.
