Children in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland already have their own commissioners.
Their job is to find out what bothers kids, as well as the things they want, and then make sure the government does something about it.
But kids' charities are concerned that the shake-up won't do enough to protect kids.
They want children to have the same rights as adults when it comes to being hurt in the home.
At the moment, parents can go to court to argue for their right to punish their kids.
