The work of journalists influences the lives of many directly and indirectly. Journalists have to take responsibility of ensuring welfare of the people. This is even more crucial when it comes to reporting on and for children. If journalists are not careful, their work can have a lasting negative impact on children. Consequently, the issue of ethics and standards becomes prominent while reporting and circulating news on and for children. Therefore, MRDI took an initiative to publish this guideline recognising the importance of the issue.
