I have seen it so many times and in so many countries, when a child is forced somehow into a the role of caregiver. You see in them an unnatural maturity and a weight of responsibility that will influence them for the rest of their lives. This scene today in the french concession area of Shanghai made me stop in my tracks. A child driving another child on a moped in the middle of the afternoon traffic… and when you have a child yourself it makes you think even more and wonder at the dire circumstances that would require that parents allow a risk like this to be taken.
