All human rights are made to ensure that all human beings are made to treat everyone equally.
Child labor has been witnessed in cases whereby children are placed in foster care. Some of the foster parents might find it right to leave all the house chores to such children even to the extent of forcing them to carry out difficult activities that are totally unfair for a child to carry out. As a result, such children might end up traumatized to the extent whereby they cannot recover in the future. Therefore, this is a real abuse to humanity because such children have the right to grow up in a good environment whereby they feel appreciated for all the good things they do.

As well, other people carry out child labor with the excuse of punishing a child for a mistake that they have done. The punishment normally involves challenging activities that should be carried out by adults alone. Such an act is child labor and an abuse to humanity because nobody would wish to be treated in such a manner. Therefore, individuals should be educated about other means of dealing with children whenever they have done a mistake. Among such ways is talking to the child so that they will not repeat such a mistake by giving them the consequences of doing such a mistake. Also, in a case whereby the parent finds it difficult to talk to the child, then it advisable for them to seek professional help so that they can be able to change the behavior of the child. In addition, as a guardian being a good role model is an important aspect in the avoidance of cases whereby one will be forced o punish a child to the extent of creating a child labor situation because it’s an abuse to humanity.

Therefore, given the fact that child labor is an abuse to humanity, then, if it not stopped, it will still be an issue in the future because it will have become a normal thing in the society. Human beings, and, especially children, have the right to be brought up by teaching them the right virtues so that they can be able to change to tomorrow world and eliminate issues like child labor among others that are an abuse to humanity. Any kind of mistreatment is an abuse to humanity and one should treat the other party the same way that they would wish to be treated.
