Ministry calls on parents to prevent child labour

Recommended Posts

A senior Labour Ministry official yesterday warned that parents should refrain from taking their children to work in order to prevent them from child labour. The statement was made by ministry secretary of state Soeung Sarsochenda during a World Day against Child Labour anniversary celebration with the theme of “Promoting Child’s Rights through the Elimination of All Forms of Child Domestic Violence”.

Ms Sarsochenda said the ministry has been paying attention to stop the practice from occurring, including by providing technical and vocational training to integrate rescued children into society and collaborating with civil society organisations to fight against the trafficking of children. Ms Sarsochenda said the ministry still faces obstacles in curbing the practice of child labour because parents continue to bring their children to work.

“The understanding of parents and also communities [is the problem],” she said. “but the ministry has organised legal norms and have disseminated [information] to them.” “We also plan to hold a training course next Monday for sub-national officials in order for them to understand about the elimination of child labour, laws and the measures taken by the government to protect Cambodian children,” Ms Sarsochenda added.

Nothing wrong with a child working with their parents, if it is in a reasonable fashion (i.e., they are in school on every school day, and they have free time to play and be with friends). There is no better way to install the virtues of working. The last thing we need is these children glued to smart phones or running loose or sitting locked up in an empty house. These "world thought bots" and their "do good think tanks" need some real people in them to bring some common sense.
