And on this date in 1989, the UN General Assembly also adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Therefore, since 1990, the day also marks the anniversary of the date that the UN General Assembly adopted both the Declaration and the Convention on children's rights.

World Children's Day 2020: Poems
1. The Children's Hour
Between the dark and the daylight,
When the night is beginning to lower,
Comes a pause in the day's occupations,
That is known as the Children's Hour.
I hear in the chamber above me
The patter of little feet,
The sound of a door that is opened,
And voices soft and sweet.
From my study I see in the lamplight,
Descending the broad hall stair,
Grave Alice, and laughing Allegra,
And Edith with golden hair.
A whisper, and then a silence:
Yet I know by their merry eyes
They are plotting and planning together
To take me by surprise.
A sudden rush from the stairway,
A sudden raid from the hall!
By three doors left unguarded
They enter my castle wall!
They climb up into my turret
O'er the arms and back of my chair;
If I try to escape, they surround me;
They seem to be everywhere.
They almost devour me with kisses,
Their arms about me entwine,
Till I think of the Bishop of Bingen
In his Mouse-Tower on the Rhine!
Do you think, O blue-eyed banditti,
Because you have scaled the wall,
Such an old mustache as I am
Is not a match for you all!
I have you fast in my fortress,
And will not let you depart,
But put you down into the dungeon
In the round-tower of my heart.
And there will I keep you forever,
Yes, forever and a day,
Till the walls shall crumble to ruin,
And moulder in dust away!
By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
2. Let Kids Be Kids
Let kids be kids; just let them be
Princesses, pirates; let the bath be the sea!
Let them stare at the sky and find animals in the clouds.
Let them dance in the rain and sing out loud.
Let them dream really big and wish upon a star.
Let them feel the wind in their hair from the window of a car.
Smell their dandelion bouquet like it's your favorite flower,
For they will grow up in what seems like just an hour.
Tell them bedtime stories each and every night.
Let them sleep in the middle when they awake with fright.
Shield them from evil and keep them from danger,
But teach them of acts of kindness for complete strangers.
Don't hurry them, overschedule them, and make them feel lost,
For if this happens it will be you who will pay the cost!
Let them build castles, do cartwheels, and find shells in the sand.
If they need a little help, then please give them a hand!
Let them walk barefoot and the grass tickle their feet,
For it's the small things in life that will make them feel complete!
Let them make couch cushion forts and sleep in a tent,
For this is the way childhood was meant to be spent!
Let them bring you breakfast in bed, let them burn your toast.
Someday it will be times like this you will miss the most.
Teach them how to serve others and be a good friend.
If you teach all these things, their love will have no end.
Teach them in life, not everyone will win.
And when they lose they need to accept with a grin.
It's not about the money you have and the things you have bought.
Life is all about lessons that parents have taught!
So let kids be kids, just let them be.
And our world will be a better place for you and for me!
