In a study published by the University of the Punjab, Centre for South Asian Studies, it was concluded that less education, need for extra money and the lack of poor monitoring by the government are important factors and reasons of child labor in Pakistan. The study also implies that potential implementation of the government’s laws and proper monitoring is a key to eradicate child labor (South Asian Studies (1026-678X). Jan-Jun2016, Vol. 31 Issue 1, p161-174. 14p.). I also read in a paper the psychosocial effects of child domestic work (CDW), the results which taken from six countries suggests that child domestic work is completely heterogenous. Some children are being put to work for long hours, endure physical punishment, and are at risk for psychosocial harm; other groups of child workers are able to attend school, and have good relationships with the other employees and benefit from a network of support (Children’s Geographies. Apr2015, Vol. 13 Issue 2, p212-225. 14p.). I found this interesting because there is a general assumption of child labor being only detrimental on the child and their development, but another insight of what child labor can be like.
