Being a child and not allowed to play - Restavek in Haiti

A leading researcher in the field of child development found that playing is very important in child development. It is the leading reason why very young children can learn so much so quickly. The study also found that the children allowed to play become better thinkers and are better equipped to think about different possibilities to solve issues.

Now imagine having an entire class of children in a society such a Haiti called Restavek who are usually unable to not only play due to their daily living condition but also go to school and are put down on a regular basis.

This can only be labeled as the self-destruction of a society
