Summary

This compilation of statistics, opinions, and projections focuses on the state of children in contemporary society. A review of statistical data on the conditions of childhood includes data on child mortality rates, illiteracy, malnutrition, energy resources available to children, and childhood suicide. Teenage pregnancies, alcoholism and drug abuse, delinquency, promiscuity, and crime; parental child abuse cases; and lack of confidence in the future are also discussed as they relate to childhood contentment and sense of self-worth. Recommendations offered for improving the conditions of childhood include helping children become deeply conscious of the world in which they live and teaching them to be humanely responsive to all human life through studying selected literature. Also suggested is involving children in worthy community activities that would demonstrate that contentment is found in aiding others. (AEA)
