“Children Engaged In Paid Work” In many countries, children are engaged in some kind of paid work.

Some people regard this as completely wrong while others consider as valuable work experience, important for learning and taking responsibility. What is your opinion about this? In my opinion it is absolutely wrong to engage children for paid work. This is nothing but engaging “child labor” which is not only wrong it is illegal rather. Children have every privilege to play and enjoy. Further when they grow up, they go to schools study and make their careers bright into the field of their choice. At such a tender age of the children if they are made to work for money as Child Labors it not only inhuman but that is the gross deterioration of morality and human values. Working age for any one is 18 years and above. At this age one is fully matured and understands his own good and bad. Also one knows difference between risky and safe and can take care of him or her and protect from dangers. While children are immature to understand this and may endanger themselves in the process of working thereby may get victimized in some or the other accident and injure themselves. Thus causing temporary partial or permanent partial or total disablement that ruins the life of the child and the poor child has to creep all though its life span. This is most pathetic. No compensation in form of money to any high value can get back what the child loses by way of disablement. In a nut shell, employing “Child Labor” is absolutely wrong, illegal and inhuman. One must not forget that children are the future of our nation and we must protect them, educate them, and develop them to their optimum capacity. ----(258 Words)
