Children Deserve to Be Children, to Live, Learn and Play Comfortably, Safely and Most Importantly, Happily
Singapore is recently ranked as the best country for children to survive, live, learn, play and grow to become well-rounded adults, beating European countries. For years, European countries have dominated the spot for being the best place for children to live in and survive until adulthood. They have set the best examples and laid out the best plans for children to live happily as children should.
Singapore Follows Suit to Become the Best Country for Children
As an Asian country, Singapore has proved the world that they too can follow in the footsteps of prosperous European countries in providing the best childhood environment for any children to survive, live, learn, play as well as grow. Combining deep set Asian cultures, enriching childhood and world’s best school system as well as all-rounded safety for children in Singapore, have propelled Singapore to rise to the top of the End Childhood Index Ranking. The index measures childhood enders scores, meaning, circumstances that can cause children to end their lives. These circumstances are child death, severe child malnutrition, being out of school, child labour, child marriage, teen pregnancy, displacement due to conflicts and child homicide.
The Best Times in a Lifetime
Children are deemed to be a simple individual; hence, their needs are simple too. But in this day and age, simplicity is no longer available without having to create a sense of worry-free atmosphere. Just as a child should be, they are care-free, worry-free individuals, having the same rights to live and grow. Children should not be allowed to worry about life, from the day there were born right up till they become adult. They have every right to enjoy life as a child, from a child’s point of view. This is a fundamental need for every child in any part of the world, yet not all children have that kind of vital access. In a lifetime, childhood memories are always rekindled and reminisced from time to time. Hence, every child in Singapore has access to that opportunity, similarly to the children in the top ten of the same index.
Singapore is the Best Country for Children to Have Quality of Life
Everyone in the world is continuously in the battle for economic stability and quality of life.

The government of Singapore strives to regularly invest in the needs of every child, even in the prenatal stages. Such investments will eventually lead to overall better quality of life for every family unit, community as well as the larger society. Thus creating a nurturing and conducive environment for children of Singapore.
