ABSTRACT

Objectives: This article reports on the children’s rights index for the experience of rights

and then explores the relation between the index and child development.

Methods: The Goodneighbor’s 2nd Data on Korean Children’s Life was used and analyzed

for this study. The relationship between rights experience level and child development was

explored using regression and Latent Profile Analysis.

Results: Among the four major rights indices, the rights to survival and development index

had a relatively large impact on the positive child development of cognitive, physical and

subjective well-being, while the rights to protection index had a relatively large impact on

the negative development of psychological society. The powerful association between the

low level of the rights to protection index and the negative child development was supported more empirically by the latent profile analysis.

Conclusions: The analysis showed that the higher the composite index as the average value

of the four major rights indices, the higher the positive development of and the lower the

negative development of children. Practical policy and practical measures on the development of children and the development of the four major rights, including protection rights, need to be explored.
