This article presents an overview of different types of rights to help consideration of, and debate about, children and young people's rights in relation to pediatrics and child health. It investigates how children's rights may or may not differ from adult rights as well as the implications for practice. It discusses that applying a children's right model can be more helpful in pursuing a public child health agenda than in reducing legal or ethical conflicts when interacting with child patients and their families.
