I can tell them. What kind of parents let their 14 year old child work full time in China? Unfit p ...
The girl wanted to go, and begged her parents to allow her to go. It was only going to be a "summer employment" contract. The modelling agency assured her parents that she would be perfectly safe, and that no harm would come to her. She was only supposed to work 3 hrs per day, according to her contract. Once there, she started at 3 hours per day, but after a week, or so, her agency had her working as much as 14-hour days, and when she complained, they threatened to deport her.
There are many shady companies in China, as there are throughout the rest of the world, I might add. This should never have happened. China doesn't really have very many laws on the books to protect employees from mistreatment/unfair working conditions, and modelling is an especially unscrupulous area of employment, with every-changing contracts. This is not a case of bad parenting. A good decision gone bad, definitely ... but not bad parenting. Neglect and abuse is bad parenting. Unfortunately nowadays, if you don't wrap your kid in a protective bubble and give them whatever they want, and allow them to get away with whatever they want, you are accused of being a bad parent.
