dans le respect dû à sa personne

  1. Hi again everyone,
    Not really sure how to translate this phrase in respect of the Articles of the Civil Code relating to marriage and duties of parents towards their child.
    In French: "Elle appartient aux père et mère jusqu'à la majorité ou l'émancipation de l'enfant pour le protéger dans sa sécurité, sa santé et sa moralité, pour assurer son éducation et permettre son développement, dans le respect dû à sa personne. "

    My initial attempt:
    and to enable his or her development in terms of an individual".
    Would this be correct?
    Many thanks for your help
    Kind regards
