Child labour context

Belinda, International conventions define children as aged 18 and under. Individual governments may define "child" according to different ages or other criteria. Child and childhood are also defined differently by different cultures. A child is not necessarily defined by a fixed age. Social scientists point out that children’s abilities and maturities vary so much that defining a child’s maturity by calendar age can be misleading.
