Yes at 5 you shoudnt be working. But if you read the artical, he has to so he can support his mom and family of 5. I dont agree with it, but if I lived there and was put in his shoes, I would have no choice but to do the same.
Pretty sad. You shouldn't have to help support a family at 5 years old. You should be outside playing with your friends, regardless where you live.
If he enjoys it, fine. There will be things he is going to miss in his childhood.

I don't feel the least bit sorry for her at all.. This kids, maybe a little (But It sure would be nice to have the option of a secured job at 5) Anyways, the mother and father should have known better, 5 kids? Come on now, if he was barely supporting the family as it was, either wrap it or keep it in your pants. She should have known better as well, not thinking of the worst, and now you make the problem even worse...
If your family member is a govt. official and he dies on duty or sometimes even off duty, a close family member gets his job or deputed to till he/she becomes fully qualified.
This kid is just deputed to his dad's job who probably died in some incident/action. He is not there working or anything, just going on alternative days to sign the attandance register and collecting paycheck at the end of the month, and in between sometime probably doing some minimum work i.e. dusting the table or bringing the water to sergent (inspector).
