When the parents aren’t in the kid’s life it can be hard on the kids. There’s no structure or discipline, so kids can do what they want. As a result, most kids wont want to go to school. Also, when parents are there but they are drunks or alcoholics they aren’t going to help the kids. There is no good example for the kids to follow, so they do what they’ve seen their parents do.
Children started working because their families needed everyone to work just to be above the level of poverty, and some people didn 't even let their kids go to school or have fun because they needed to work. The only kids who could go to school were mostly from the wealthy family. Children had to go through hard times just to survive and feed themselves and their family members because if the child would not go to work then their family would not provide any basic need which the child need in childhood. This senerio is very commonly seen in the poor families with more number of children. The author Caitlin Ryan said in one of the article "Can we tolerate child labor in our supply chains and closets?"
The lack of education for working children is also another very serious problem. Child laborers work for most of the day, and in some cases 16 hours a day. There is no question, that education is a major contributing factor to the overall development of the child. Yet, because of the long working hours, children are deprived of time for education. Some children are more or less slaves, controlled by their employer to work all the time.
Child labor is morally wrong. The children shouldn?t be forced to work. Most children who work are little more than slaves to their employers. They put up with abuse, starvation, and sometimes never being paid for their work. One eight year-old boy, Munnilal, from Varanasi, I... ... middle of paper ... ...hould be passed to better the conditions in which they work though.
In that time children worked in factories or coal mines for long hours and little pay. In a factory the owner required kids to work 12-18 hours a day, 6 days a week to only get a Dollar. Which was outrageous because the kids were doing work that adults should be doing such as tending machines and lifting heavy loads. Also the conditions the children had to work in were terrible and as a result they usually became sick. This raises the question “why would someone hire kids to work under such conditions?” the answer to that is, is that sometimes the kids have no choice but to work because of their parents’ economic situations and choose to work instead of living on the streets.
25), the children do not learn to be responsible. Responsibility should be learned early on in life because whenever he/she goes to work and they are given a job to complete, he/she will not be able to complete the work and could be fired from the job. The parents do everything for their children and later on in the children’s life, they will be still dependent on the parents to do everything for them. The parents should find a way to allow their children to take care of themselves and the parents should stop hovering over whatever
The difficulty to provide for a family, much less make more money to rise above the working class, caused children born into working class families to feel like they were “stuck” because they did not have the extra time or money to devote to an education. Instead of being able to learn and grow during childhood, children in the working class focused on the survival of themselves and their family. This contrasts the middle class where children had the possibility to earn an education before working in the future. Horatio Alger argued that anyone can change their situation by a little extra work and by improving their behavior, but Ragged Dick was an unrealistic character. Children born into poverty often faced a cycle, where guidance and luck could not even help the escape the working class because they were committed to their families.
Child Labor What if your young son or daughter was working in a big factory, breathing in bad chemicals, and losing fingers in the machinery? Would you be okay with that? I highly doubt you would be. The conditions of factories can be terrible, unsafe, and unhealthy for children to work in for extended periods of time. These children can get respiratory problems, diseases, and many other conditions, just because they are working there.
Child labor, an illegal course of action that increases work rate, production, and most of all, profit. This method of mass-production began in the early years of the Industrial Revolution. A big cause of child labor was the big business owners needed people to work in their factories; they chose children because of their relatively low level of education, lack of knowledge of their human rights, and accepted low pay. The employers should have a responsibility to tell the children their rights, what they’re doing, and what they’re getting for it. The worst area in the world for child labor is in third world countries, because the children are dropping out of school so they can get some money so they don’t starve to death.
Child labor not only prevents children from receiving an education, but the responsibility of supporting a family can cause long-term psychological and physical effects. Although many western activists are taking steps to regulate child labor, competition on the world market is slowing the reform process. After the industrial revolution, Children began to work outside of the home and leave the protection of their families to work in mines and factories. Child labor takes place because of a combination of social and economic factors. Dabeida Agramonte suggests the following are possible explanations for the occurrence of child labor: “Factors like poverty, lack of employment and low household income; lack of access to a quality education, the lack of alternative recreational spaces in communities and the existence of broken families.
