How much time do you have to yourself?

David’s childhood was very different from yours or mine. He worked as a piecer in the Blantyre Cotton Works, which meant long hours and dangerous work. This is because his parents were poor and needed him to earn money. In those days, there were fewer laws to protect the rights of children and it was legal to send children to work full time. David used to work a full day at the factory and then go to school in the evenings because his education was very important to him.

  • How much time do you have to yourself at the end of a day at school?
  • What do you with that time?
  • How much time do you think David had, once he was finished with work and school?
