1 Children from all around the world are basically the same.
2 Their needs are similar wherever they live.
3 Of course they need food, parents and love.
4 However, as children grow older, their needs may differ according to their culture.
5 In some countries, children go to school from the age of three.
6 In other cultures, children may never go to school at all.
7 When they are babies, they all eat or drink milk.
8 When they are older, their food becomes the same as their parents.
9 This naturally is different in different parts of the world.
10 In the west, children learn to use knives and forks and spoons.
11 In the east, they use chopsticks and spoons.
12 Children will leave school and start work at different ages.
13 Their education will depend on many things including cultural background.
14 It does not matter if they are from east or west, most people think children are beautiful.
15 It is a shame it changes as they get older.
