  1. Today
  2. I agree with Lauren above that it depends on what you mean by child labour. I think having a part time job aged 14 onwards which doesn't have a negative effect on school work is a good idea. Learning skills in the workplace and learning to budget are good things for your future and full time jobs later in life.
  3. Last week
  4. In answer to the question "Do you think it is more acceptable for boys or girls to engage in paid work?" "I think they can all work as long as they are going to school, doing their homework, getting good grades and getting a fair wage (and not doing anything dangerous!)"
  5. In answer to the question "Do you think it is more acceptable for boys or girls to engage in paid work?" "They can equally do paid work as long as it doesn't stop them from going to school"
  6. In answer to 'Do your children have to do chores?' "Yes!!! They are 2 and 4 but they have to tidy their toys, make their beds etc. I have two amazingly independent little chicks ๐Ÿ˜ƒ" "and they don't get pocket money for doing it...I don't get paid, they don't paid ๐Ÿ˜‚"
  7. In reply to: Do you think it is acceptable for school age children to have a part-time job? 'Absolutely, it should be part of the curriculum'
  8. I think they can all [both girls and boys] work as long as they are going to school, doing their homework, getting good grades and getting a fair wage (and not doing anything dangerous!)
  9. Earlier
  10. I think that it is not a bad idea because they can learn practical skills or manners in society. However, I believe it is important to gain basic knowledge including mandatory education in order to live as one of members in society.
  11. I think it is not a bad idea but they should do what they want in their childhood. They have a right to choose whatever they want; study, work, and other things.
  12. in the United States hundreds of thousands of children perform #ChildLabor on U.S. farms--many are the children of migrant farmworkers performing back-breaking labor that typically starts at age 12.
  13. I think older children (13+?) could maybe spend a small amount of time working in the home or in a job suitable for a young person as it teaches responsibility and other skills
  14. It depends on how you define child labour. I think children's labour which takes away time from their studies is definitely damaging and children should also have time left to play, hazardous work is also bad.
  15. Yes, of course, it's a bad idea. There are enough adults without employment and children should be in school learning.
  16. It's possible now but the wealthy nations are not willing to give up their luxuries so that the poor can have clean water,
  17. It should be a basic right that everyone has access to clean water.
  18. It's possible if all water sourceS are made or provided at a free cost and there are no charges after they have been installed in the area.
  19. NO, because so many people in the local community can not afford to pay for some water bills even when the safe water is brought near to them
  20. It's difficult living in the UK to get my head around not having access to clean water and for basically the entire population too. The thing I definitely know is we take our fresh water literally on tap for granted and waste so much of it when vast parts of the rest of the world has nowhere near the systems of the UK. Access to clean, safe, fresh water should absolutely be a human right and should be top of any country's priorities.
  21. its impossible because not all people stay in areas that have water sources. some people are in hard to reach ares and cant acces water
  22. yes,if the authorities extend properly the clean water to the local community by sensitizing and training on how to purify water
  23. NO, Because so many people in the local community can not afford topay for some water bills even when the safewater is brought to them
  24. no since most people are ignorant about the advantages of having enough and safe water.
  25. I think the word โ€˜enoughโ€™ is interesting because one of the issues is that every society is increasing their use of water. When access to clean water is provided people naturally use more. In the first world we use clean water for many things that we could use grey water for - like climate issues we need to raise the profile so people think about water and recycling water and not wasting it.
  26. It should be offered for free for everyone. The safe water is a basis of Basic Human Needs. People cannot live without enough safe water.
  27. No, because not everyone can afford those facilities to have water and maintain those systems. I know that there are many projects to help people to reach the safe water, but it is so hard to give it to everyone, especially for people who are living in developing countries.
