This paper explains that most of the children engaging in child labor live in underdeveloped countries of Latin America, Africa, and Asia, where living conditions for these children are crude and opportunities for education minimal; however, their income is necessary for the survival of their families, providing the basic essentials. The author points out that many small enterprises are completely dependent on child labor, and the bulk of child labor occurs in rural areas and is usually associated with traditional family economic activities, such as farming or animal husbandry. The paper stresses that child prostitution, a worldwide, urban, social phenomenon, is considered one of the worst contemporary forms of slavery and one of the most difficult and dangerous forms of child labor.
