Working children:
It is difficult to quantify the issue for several reasons:

Studies might not agree on numbers but they generally agree that poverty is at the root of the problem.
Surveys have shown that working children usually come from large, low-income families and that the wages of working children represent almost one quarter of total household income.
They work averaging from nine to 11 hours in different studies, and dangerous work environments. Children harvesting cotton routinely work 11 hours a day seven days a week in the 40-degree heat of the summer, and in a survey done by Human Rights Watch in 2002 nearly all reported beatings by foremen.

1-Reason is that most of the work done by children is confined to the informal
Sector -- selling items (tissue paper, cigarettes or toys) on the street, seasonal workers in agriculture, casual labour on construction sites, or domestic work.
2-Another reason is that a large part of child labor is seasonal. Over a million children are hired each season, for example, to bring in the Egyptian cotton crop.
Studies suggest that children who try to work and go to school don’t do as well at school as other children, but also that almost half of paid child workers simply do not go to school at all.
It is committed by one man against child - for instance, hitting, slapping, or striking with an object .

academic achievement
physical development

Emotional impairment, substance abuse, lack of social support, presence of domestic violence and a history of childhood abuse .

The characteristics of physically abused children :
Boys and girls are equally abused
Signs in adulthood :
aggressive and violent behaviour
"Neglect" refers to a range of circumstances in which a parent fails to adequately provide for a child's needs:
Through the provision of:
Medical care
Care, love and support
Moral and legal guidance

Sexual abuse describes any incident in an adult engages a minor in a sexual act, or exposes the minor to inappropriate sexual behavior or material.

girls more than boys.

Prevention would Include information on supporting families, protective factors, public awareness, community activities, positive parenting, prevention programs, and more.
Promoting child & family well-being.
Framework of child prevention
• Parent education programs
• Parent support groups
• Home visiting programs
• Respite care for families that have children with special needs
• Family resource centers that offer information and referral services
• Role of public health agencies in preventing maltreatment is tremendous both by regular mental evaluation and physical examinations of children .

• Intensive family preservation services
• Parent mentor programs
• Mental health services for children

• Public service announcements
• Parent education programs
• Family support
• Public awareness campaigns


Tertiary prevention programs, targeted toward families in which abuse has already occurred (indicated).

Consists of three levels of services:
Primary prevention programs, directed at the general population (universal) in an effort to prevent maltreatment before it occurs.

Secondary prevention programs, targeted to individuals or families in which maltreatment is more likely (high risk)
Developing & Sustaining Prevention Programs
• Assessing community strengths and needs
• Collaboration and partnerships
• Family engagement and retention
• Parent engagement and leadership
• Cultural competence
• Training
• Funding
• Making an economic case

Evaluating Prevention Programs
• Tools for evaluating prevention programs
• Making an economic case
• Results of program evaluations

While the physical wounds heal, there are several long-term consequences of abuse or neglect.

Children who are maltreated often are at risk of experiencing cognitive delays and emotional difficulties, or putting future generations at the risk of the same experiences again and again.

Childhood trauma also negatively affects nervous system and immune system.
