- Isolated children from studies
- Harmful for their health
Nowadays many children are being involved in paid jobs in some parts of the world. However, there are some debates that have counterarguments on the utilization of child work. Some people consider it as an essential work experience that can be useful for their future careers, whereas others refute this. For me, it is better that children focus on their studies rather than involving in paid work as it isolates them from studies and may harm their health.
On the one hand, as working requires some time, children cannot balance their time on work and study. For example, instead of doing their homework, after classes, children indulge in earning money. Consequently, they will not acquire their studies well. Therefore, it is not supported that children work in order to gain experience and increase their responsibilities.
On the other hand, at their early age, children health is fragile. Any kind of work, like carrying goods, digging land can hurt their health. As a result of this, they can be disabled for their whole life or at least, suffer from some diseases. Considering this, engaging young people in payment based jobs is not a good idea.
In summary, after analyzing negative effects of paid work to children, once more, I am inclined to believe that people should not work in their early ages. Instead, they should focus on gaining knowledge, playing and doing sport which can be useful for their health and future career.
