Would abolishing child labour be an effective strategy to improve the lives of children? Why or Why not?
I don't know the answer to this questions because I kind of think that this would be a good stragety but at the same time I don't. I think that it would be good if child labour ended because then so many deaths wouldn't occur, and families wouldn't get shattered if something bad occured. At the same time I think that this wouldn't be a good stragety because children would be the only hope to the parents who can't work, to earn a profit. So parents would need their children to produce money for their living, and at a young age they would have to manage such work.
Please list your opinions. Maybe they will help me answer this question much more clearly, thanks
You're on the right track. However, most enlightened societies do forbid children from working in most jobs. Families should be taken care of by the state if the adults can't work.
Children are the future for a society. Today, if they aren't educated, they won't be able to contribute to the improvement of their country.
