Some people think that young children should be allowed to do paid work while others think that this

should be illegal.

Discuss both opinions.

Sample Answer:
Whether it is about the nature of the job or the work hours, there are many issues surrounding the employment of youngsters.
Some kids work out of their will and some are forced to work. It depends on the situation. Those who are in favor of young ones
working for pay highlight the skills and experiences that can be gained; however, those who are against this idea that seems to
border on exploitation emphasize the threats to schoolwork and health.

On one hand, earned wages can help the youth learn how to manage their money. The professional world is one of the best
classrooms when it comes to offering lessons in financial management, including real-world tutorials on income taxes,
budgeting, and credit. With parents as partners, youngsters can open a new savings or checking account and discover the
glorious beauty of compounding interest. Hence, an early lesson in personal finance can truly aid in the development of good
money management habits, possibly avoiding the debt trap and saving for the future. In addition, part-time jobs can help
children acquire professional experience. Even if the young ones only work after school, on weekends, or during summer, these
jobs can aid the youth in gaining a sense of responsibility and realizing the value of hard work. For example, scooping ice cream,
delivering newspapers, and doing administrative support work are all skill sets that still involve managing time, managing
priorities, and working with others, says a community expert for Glassdoor, a job search and review site. Thus, it seems clear
that these professional skills can help teens earn more in the future, ace a college interview, and obtain better full-time jobs as

On the other hand, there are children who are employed in work that deprives them of their childhood, interfering with their
ability to attend regular school and harming them not only physically but also mentally. First of all, paid jobs can be a distraction
from coursework. Every hour spent working is an hour that the youth can’t spend studying, playing sports, volunteering, or
pursuing an internship. Not engaging in those types of experiences can be detrimental to them down the road, including
imperiling or delaying graduation, endangering school admission, or reducing future merit-based aid packages. As students,
their biggest task is to get that diploma—earning a paycheck is less essential to their future success. Additionally, even odd jobs
can take a toll on the health of young ones. If they study, spend time with family and friends, and work all at the same time,
they may not get a sufficient amount of sleep and exercise. Therefore, when kids have too much on their plate and are
overworked, they become especially prone to stress.

In summary, while paid labor can teach young minds about values and increase their know-how, if it borders on child labor, then
it can cost them both a good education and their well-being. It is hoped that the combined effort of the government, labor
groups, children’s rights groups, and parents in the primary assessment of the situation of each individual and the working
conditions of children can ensure that these kids develop valuable life experiences not at the expense of their welfare and their
