I recently made a website for a school project and it's goal is to raise awareness of the many problems kids and teens are facing...there are currently about 21 links posted on my website, links to charities that can help, and LUMOS is the first on my list! Avatar ImageJadaPice says: Children's Day is celebrated on various days in many places around the world, in particular to honor children. The values and disciplines learned as a child are responsible for the kind of adulthood one has and this can't be found on any store with your money or installment loans to pay. Thus childhood is special and should be celebrated. Children's Day is to remind all young and adults about children's right to enjoy their childhood without any boundaries and to be educated adult in the future. Children's Day is to revise the right methods of raising children.
