In this context, the protection of the rights of the child is the priority and crucial task of the state. The Basic Law, the provisions of which underlie all other legal acts, ensures the protection of the rights and interests of the child in our country. The Constitution proclaims the principles of the legal status of an individual and a citizen, that is, the fundamentals that ensure that the child enjoy all the rights. These principles determine the features of the status of the child and are applied to all, without exception, the rights of the child as an individual and citizen, not only set forth in the Constitution, but also enshrined in national laws. The constitutional provisions on the legal status of the child determine the main areas of the state policy for children.
