As you read this, hundreds, maybe thousands of children are being exploited. They are forced to work at their young age. Some are forced to work in hazardous environments, under the eyes of mean factory owners, and for long hours in the day. Some other children work to satisfy other people's hunger for pleasure. These children, prostitutes and factory workers, are also both underpaid and overworked.
These children don't work because they want to. They are forced to do so because of poverty.
Not all abused children are factory workers or prostitutes. Some of them are in school. But they have bad parents who give them cruel punishments with every wrong move.
Child Labor, Prostitution, and Battering are forms of exploitation. They are examples of Child Abuse.
