Depends on the definition.
Wikipedia defines child labour as such:
> Child labour refers to the exploitation of children through any form of work that deprives children of their childhood, interferes with their ability to attend regular school, and is mentally, physically, socially and morally harmful.
It's perfectly sane and can be very good for children to do "work", meaning something useful or something that gives an income, as long as they enjoy it, can learn something from it, and also get enough time to go to school and play.
I have returned from hibernation from the RMB. While not being on NS that much I learned that my great-grandfather was an absolute chad. He served in WWII in the Air Force, was a Lieutenant Colonel, flew 14 missions, commanded over 600 men, took control of over 300 planes after the other two leads had to drop back, on that same mission when he returned he thought he was going to be court-marshaled, and was married to my great-grandmother for 61 years. Any more questions about him?
I think it's important not to forget why child labor is wrong, and that wikipedia article sums it up quite nicely I think.
We have some traditions that involves children doing seasonal work, there is more and more discussions about it every year. Yet, according to that wikipedia definition I think it's not "child labour" when it only involves working for a short season, when the children fully decides themselves if they want to do it or not, when the parents agree (and not because they are too poor to deny it), when it's not a full-time employment, when it comes in addition to regular school and play, and when they get to keep all the money.
One of them is children (from 9 years and up to adult age) cutting cod tongues, in some parts of the country that's considered a cultural heritage, this work is supposed to be done by children and not adults. If I've understood it right, to get around the laws against children labour the children are considered to be self-employed, I guess they are "borrowing" the fish and then selling the tongues by the kilogram. Some professor was quoted in the newspaper saying the biggest issue is that they easily earn too much money, the children are too young to learn about economy and budgeting. I tend to disagree on that, I think nine year is a good age for starting to learn about saving, budgeting and planning.
