Upon the shoulders of the children rests the future of the world. Children in different countries have different lifestyles, and for many of them, the lifestyle they experience will be a lifestyle that remains with them for the rest of their lives.
For other children, their lives are full of happiness and adventure, and their experiences prepare them for their years of adulthood that carry with them greater opportunities and responsibilities. But the years of childhood should be happy ones for all children, full of love and friendship, they do not need wealthy trappings to be happy.
During a visit to Madrid many years ago, we walked away from the bustle of the high streets with shops displaying goods the ordinary people could not afford to buy. A short distance away we came to a side street, lined with home dwellings constructed of reclaimed tin sheeting and cardboard. Two small boys, raggedly dressed and with unwashed faces, were crouched together on the dusty and unmade roadway. They could be heard talking and laughing happily together as they played. When we got closer to them we were able to see that these two happy children from very poor families, were playing with their toys....... dead leaves that had fallen off the roadside trees.

Children Photos: Vietnamese Girls Work In Ha Long Bay.
The two Vietnamese girls shown in the Children Photos were on a boat in Ha Long Bay. The children photos from Vietnam were taken during a visit in 1996. Ha Long Bay, where this children photo was taken is famous for its mountain islands. A boat taking tourists around the islands was soon visited by hawkers boats. In the children photos on this page, from Ha Long Bay, it was the young girls who were doing the selling, while Ma controlled their boat.
What reason was there for the children to be involved in selling goods to visitors on tour boats making their way around the mountain islands of Halong Bay? Would the children receive a better response than their parents from the tourists? If a child pleads with you to buy a packet of biscuits or a can of cola, it is difficult to ignore the plea uttered from the mouths of angelic faces. Perhaps the children would have been much happier playing on shore with their friends, but perhaps the needs of the family were much greater.
Children Photos: Chinese Boy Playing With Football In Beijing.
Taking children photos can sometimes be very rewarding if the boys and girls in the children photos are not aware of the camera.
Although the young Chinese boy in the children photos was carrying a football, he seemed to be more interested in climbing on top of the logs, at the entrance to the Minorities Park
near Beijing city. The Park has many examples of ethnic homes, including stilted houses and cave dwellings.
A child (plural: children) is a boy or girl who has not reached puberty, but also refers to offspring of any age. Adults remain the children of their parents, no matter what their age. The term is also used figuratively, for someone who behaves like a child. It can be applied to non-human offspring, as in the child node of a tree.
