They're not really forced and it's not like they have to do back breaking labour..and the kid might be enjoying himself..or maybe he's a wannabe actor..

But what about infants and toddlers? Do they really have a choice? Their parents are making that choice for them and essentially choosing to rob their kids of their childhood for money.

There are a lot of rules about minors who act. They are required to spend so much time being educated as well as working. That leaves them very little time to be kids.
