In many countries children are engaged in some kind of paid work. Some people regard this as completely wrong, while others consider it as valuable work experience, important for learning and taking responsibility.
What are your opinions on this?
Around the world some countries encourage paid work in children; it is usually in poor places, and with talented boy and girls. There exist different ideas about it; some of them have a trend to say that early paid work is a way to learn about responsibilities, find work experience, and prepare yourself for life; while other opinions claim about it as a terrible mistake of society, parents and governments.
Childrenhood is a time to prepare for life, learn important things and skills for future. For some children could be essential to work early and start to build their life looking for a better future, specially because they count on family support to teach them, and help them when some trouble come out of the blue; in this way, they would learn about hard things with family holding.
On the other hand, the surest way to have success (for people and society) is focus on education which is the rout to teach important things to children at the moment they are playing and enjoying their childrenhood that is very short time in life. Moreover, recent research has showed that people who learned to study early tend to have higher academic career and usually they are more successful in future. Then, it is important to spend the early ages playing and studying.
Nevertheless, it is difficult in poor society where it is necessary that each family member find money to eat every day. However, government must to work looking for solvent those problems and offer opportunities to study for children. Even if having a paid work is a help for some children, it is necessary that they can go to school.
In the final analysis, in my opinion children must spend their time studying and playing to grow up strong and be ready for the future. Some kids could need to work but it should to be avoiding step by step offering better opportunities.
