Parents decide to send their child for engaging in a job as a desperate measure due to poor economic conditions. It is therefore no wonder that the poor households predominantly send their children to work in early ages of their life. Child labour renders that children are sent to work at the expense of education. Thus we can say that child labour obstructs the effective growth and development of a child. All children who are entitled to a healthy environment in which they can flourish are being hindered due to economic and such other conditions of their household.
