In this literature review, we are going to discuss the relationship of Child Labor and how can it affect relationships. Also does the family orientation of the child the reason why he/she is forced to work and what is the role of the government in helping to eradicate child labor? Child Labor Child Labor is a factor that impedes on a child’s ability to successfully transition into adulthood. It is recognized as the worst form of abuse and exploitation of children and sadly, it is really rampant today because of poverty. There are millions of children all over the world that are being forced to work by their parents because they are poverty-stricken.
Many of them have argued that mobility, poverty, and heterogeneity undermine neighborhood connections and social links, which majorly contributes to the breakdown of informal social control resulting in the increase of crime rates inside society. The presence of informal social control can help to contain crime to some extent, but the absence of it results in the negative. Criminologists suggest that factors related to economic backgrounds have a key role to play in this matter. Studies have been conducted on several families in accordance with economic standards. The results shows very clearly that people belonging to poor economic backgrounds often lose their faith in the structure of the social system, and then they tend to involve in criminal activities for either having a good life in future days (only in the sense of good economic status) or to express their anger on the system by being an outlaw.
One of the most serious problems that Nike’s illegal practices are responsible for is the physical, mental, and sexual abuse that the young workers might undergo in their working conditions. The children are not given proper training nor are they provided the necessary safety equipment, but they are also exposed to toxic material. They are also paid a meager stipend of an average of $1.60 a day when the necessary amount for survival is at least $3.00. They are expected to work an average of 60 to 70 hours a week. Although Nike signed a pledged to stop using workers in hazardous situations in 1998, there are still numerous companies worldwide that constantly abuse the basic rights of children.
This in practice makes the children with such behaviour have little or no friends as compared to non-aggressive children. Aggression also raises the chances at which the children will slip into bullying behaviour (Gentile, Coyne & Walsh, 2010). Bullying complicates the relationship of an aggressive child to his or her peers and significantly increases the risk associated with social problems during their adolescent and adulthood stage. Aggressive impulses among the affected children are expected to occur occasionally, hence raising the likelihood of that child landing in trouble during such impulses (Eyberg, Nelson & Boggs, 2008). It depends on how a child is able to control such aggressive impulses.
In most cases, teenagers and adolescents have the worst experience when they are deformed or handicapped. The teenage years are cruel and ruthless because everyone is insecure and they do not yet know who they are. Erik Parens details what it was like to be an adolescent with an apparent physical
Most of them are either abandoned or neglected, and some had deceased parents. Unfortunately, the population of the orphaned children among Filipinos is rapidly increasing. Thousands of impoverished urban orphaned children are greatly taking up; they have been deprived by many privileges and rights like education and healthcare. Worst scenario, some are even exposed to violence, harsh labor conditions, high risk of exploiting to gangs and other violent groups, and child trafficking.

There are positive and negative social and individual effects of advertising. One positive social effect is the impact of materialism on economic growth. Most noticeable of the negative effects is the effect on the environment and the diminished overall sense of wellbeing.

Topic Introduction Millions of children worldwide are thrown into the traps of forced labour, with their childhood, education, health and most importantly their basic rights robbed off them. Most of these children work under extremely harsh conditions and take on life-threatening and dangerous jobs and are also underpaid and malnourished. However on the other spectrum, children are also forced into other extreme, morally unjustified jobs such as slavery , soldiering, prostitution, drug-trafficking. Many factors are said to be the driving force behind this issue which includes social norms, emergencies, migration and most prominently poverty. Even though there has been a decline in child labour over these years, progress has been made too slow

Moreover, poverty may lead to an actual or perceived inferior education, which would cause youth to count on less access to quality schools, jobs, and role models, decreasing the opportunity costs of crime and increasing the probability of youth spending time on the street associating with gangs, etc. People who suffer economic disadvantage can feel “disconnected” from mainstream society and its value and hence may feel less respect for the law. An important point to make is that levels of education have been determined to be significant in the manifestation of criminal behaviour. Individuals with learning disabilities have been shown to be more prone to violent
