Children are not mini-persons with mini-rights, mini-feelings and mini-human dignity. They are vulnerable human beings with full rights which require more, not less protection.”
Maud de Boer-Buquicchio, Deputy Secretary General of the Council of Europe, October 2005

"You don't stop playing because you get old, you get old because you stop playing.' 
George Bernard Shaw 

'The right to play is the child's first claim on the community.  Play is nature's training for life.  No community can infringe that right without doing enduring harm to the minds and bodies of its citizens.'      
David Lloyd George 1925
