Children rights at work

Following on from the previous lesson, have children’s rights manifest themselves in the world of work?

Are children treated equally at work with adults? In Victorian Britain children certainly didn’t have a childhood in the way we now understand it

Follow this link and construct a comprehensive outline of children’s rights at work in the uk.

What does this tell you about the social construction of childhood in relation to rights and responsibilities?

Moreover is there any evidence on this previous page of study that that maybe children’s rights in the UK aren’t that different to the past and the way children are treated in other countries to day? Follow this link to a small article about growing up in Sweden which pioneered children’s rights!
