Some people think that child labor and child soldiers is good for a kids health but I believe that child labor and child soldiers are good for a kid because think of the abuse that happens to them and how harmful and that it is violent.

One reason why child labor and child soldiers should stop is because of all the abuse that happens to them. For example, kids are adorable to physical and mental abuse. Another example, they don’t get the right clothing to protect them from the pesticides and injuries from using tools or the machinery. Here are a few things that you can do to help stop child labor

1. Review national laws regarding child labour

2. Refer to your buyers’ requirements

3. Check the age of your employers

4. Identify hazardous work

5. Carry out workplace risk assessment

6. Stop hiring children below the minimum age

7. Remove children from hazardous work

Another reason why child labor and child soldier should stop is because it is harmful. For example, every year thousands of boys and girls are taken away from their families at the age of 4 or 5. According to GET THE FACTS ABOUT CHILD LABOR AND HOW IT AFFECTS IMPOVERISHED CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES there are 168 million children worldwide trapped in child labor, 68 million girls. Around half are engaged in hazardous work. Another example, children as young as 6 are sent to work as domestic servants in the home of richer families. More girls than boys work in this way isolation in their employer’s home and working long hours, they are often poorly fed. They are also denied an education and vulnerable to mental and physical abuse.

The last reason why child labor and child soldiers should stop is because it is violent to kids. For example, they work for a lifetime of labor in the factories, fields, and clingy workshops in Asia, Africa, and South America. Another example this is the world of child street sellers, children working in miners In diamond mines and brass factories.

Others may say that child labor is good for kids. For example think of all the poor families that need their child to work and they are starting at the age of 4 or 5. Another example is that girls, being less valued than boys, girls are most likely to drop out.

The issue of child labor and child soldiers is very harsh to the kids. Think of all the kids might die because of all the chemicals that they breathe in. If you could help stop child labor and child soldiers would you or would you let them go through the abuse and that they could be harmed by thing and that it is violent and all the violence they go through please help stop child labor and child soldiers.
