    our world in 2014,

    I do not think it is athread to be discussed, just read it and wonder
    ΟΘΕΝ ΑΙΔΩΣ OY EINAI
    ΑΤΗ ΛΑΜΒΑΝΕΙΝ ΑΥΤΟΙΣ
    ΥΒΡΙΣ ΓΕΝΝΑΤΑΙ
    ΝΕΜΕΣΙΣ ΚΑΙ ΤΙΣΗ ΑΚΟΛΟΥΘΟΥΣΙ ΔΕ

    When there is no shame
    Divine blindness conquers them
    Hybris (abuse, opprombium) is born
    Nemesis and punishment follows.

    Εχε υπομονη Ηρωα
    Η τιμωρια δεν αργει.

    From their website:
    What is child labour?
    Child labour is work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential and their dignity, and that is harmful to physical and mental development.
    Did they distinguish between a hard labour in fields or factory from something that builds responsibility like doing house chores or delivering newspaper in the morning?
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.

    I don't think they should take this under consideration. Kids don't miss school, help parents for few hours and still have plenty of time to play or do nothing. It doesn't fit their definition (in post #2).

    I tend to agree, helping in family business can have an educational character most of times,
    that is happening I believe in yellow and orange colour,
    but i doupt if it has an educational character in very dark colours

    Its necessary for Children to help their parents they even enjoy it and they its educational in itself, even if they get rewarded for it (I know I did), but depriving a child from general education to earn a miserable wage is the big no no especially when some parents seem to encourage it. However levels of free child education and proximity to schools vary greatly and also financial misery (which is still the case in so many countries) tend to push forward some negative trends, which is a shame at this day and age.

    What is for us today a Negative Trend was a normal existence in the past. In old days kids had to do labour (help family) as soon as they could pick up and carry wood for fire or fetch water from river or a well. Older kids took care of smaller siblings and worked gardens or fields. They only played in mintime.
