What do you think about child labour?I'm sure most of us think it is wrong and should be banned. But some of the kids or their families that you speak to justify it saying that they have to make money (even if they earn pittance) to make ends meet. Can you think of a solution where no one loses?

I understand what you say. And now it's too late for you to go back and have a childhood. But you might have the satisfaction of thinking that you did something for the family. There are others who justify the kids working because they need the money. What do you think of that. Do we have the right to deprive them of that? Do we need to be make better opportunities for those adults to make money so that the kids can have a better childhood? If so...what are your suggestions on that?
