Do you think child labour is a bad idea?

Recommended Posts

Guest Gary

Yes, of course, it's a bad idea. There are enough adults without employment and children should be in school learning.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!)

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 😃"

"and they don't get pocket money for doing it...I don't get paid, they don't paid 😂"

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"

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.
