Many people today live in the delusion that they live in a world where the number of child laborers is only 1 million at most. In reality, there is an astonishing 128 million child laborers in the world. That’s 128 million children being deprived of the possibility of a brighter future. The first step to getting rid of the use of child laborers is educating others of what is going on and hopefully that will lead to stricter labor laws worldwide. Though the number of child laborers had gone down throughout the years, the number of people still oblivious to the vast number of working children is quite disappointing.
For that amount of children to be living that low in life is unacceptable, but because of how education is in these areas where the children are living in are bad, they don’t have much hope for their future. Education is the only outlook these kids have for a better future and if that is corrupt or interfered with than there is a really good chance of them not being able to escape the poverty. Although there are millions of teachers that do strive to provide the best for his or her

The stigma against mental health in society prevents people from learning about how parents and school affect child development, which results in adolescents and adults with poor mental health unable to function normally in society. Holden’s mental disorders are likely a result from his bad childhood, his brothers death and no sort of therapist or counsler to talk to him about his emotions and how to deal with them;“I was only thirteen and they were going to have me psychoanalyzed and all, because I broke all the windows in the ... ... middle of paper ... ...chool and life. Holden is a teenager and this is an example of his characters immaturity and perspective, and shows his stubborn personality. Society placing too much pressure upon teenagers, family problems, and the school system, are the main reasons that Holden has a hypocritical attitude, and admires and fixates on innocence, which makes his character an ideal example of a teenager in American society with ignored issues, such as mental illnesses, and is important to recognize for the safety and well-being of teenagers, children, and students in American society. To ensure the well-being of teenagers and the future generations, they cannot be pressured as excessively as they are, because it does not guarantee that teenagers are leading mentally stable and enjoyable lives.
Child Labor remains one of the major social issues, especially in third world countries. There have been many instances in todays history that have been binded into the hardships of labor force.Children from many decades ago and until this day, have been viewed as cheap, manageable, renewable and easy sources by big corporations and businesses. It should be illegal and banned everywhere. Child labor, of course is an unconscionable act under any circumstance; governments under the poorest countries must take action to do something about this dilemma. They should take measures to stop the exploitation of children for their services.

Ways to deal with or/and adapt challenges: Micro Environment Schools allocate resources to the different sections in the schools, these resources are allocated to help educate the children if the children don’t attend classes or come to school because of malnutrition and don’t concentrate. These resources will go to waste. Market Environment: Government should make schools aware of the disadvantaged children and they should all be taught because everyone has the right to a proper education.
One of the major effects is the lack of education the children receive as a result of being child labourers. One may think that it is considered ethical if these children by working are helping their families. This may be true short term; however, these children in not receiving an education will be unable to acquire the skills learned in school, affecting both their present and future situation, as well as the fate of their offspring. “Because the majority of working children miss out on an education, the long-term effects of child labour could contribute to the Poverty Cycle, ultimately hurting more people than helping” (Mitchell Sharpe, 2013). According to article 32 of the Conventions on the Rights of the Child, child labour includes “any economic activities impeding or hindering the child 's full development or education.”
Condemning the Innocent According to the International Labor Organization 215 million children (5-14) are involved in child labor. That’s almost 1 in three children having to work causing them to lose time that could be spent in school experiencing their childhood and most importantly being in a safe environment. Today Child labor has become a growing concern throughout the global community and should be put to a stop because of it is abusive, destructive, and promotes a regressive society for children everywhere. We cannot afford for our youth to continue in this horrendous cycle because it not only is detrimental for our present but for our future. Child labor is abusive to these children as it is grueling and dangerous for these mistreated workers.
Therefore, poverty and lack of education are both factors that most negatively affect a child. Poverty is the harshest factor for children as it encompasses hunger, lack of access to medical facilities, and lack of access to clean water. Lack of education is another devastating factor as ignorance only harms and limits a child from succeeding in today’s competitive global economy. Where does the fine line of poverty stand? In the United States of America, children who live on less than $18,000 a year are considered to be living in poverty while in various other countries, children who live on less than $2 a day are considered to be living in poverty.
It is unjust to say that cohabitation directly causes negative life outcomes for children living in these households. Due to this fact, I will be focusing on three factors that contribute the greatest to negative life outcomes. These factors include instability, economic status, and lack of institutionalization. Cohabitation is believed to be an unstable family form creating family instability (Raley and Wildsmith, 2004). Instability creates negative life outcomes in children of cohabitating households.
