Child labor started because many families had to find someone to work or they couldn't survive. Even though they worked for long periods they earned so little an example is the children that worked in factory's they worked about 12 to 18 and some up to 19 hours a day and barely earned enough money for their families. Most of those children didn't have an option to work or not, if they didn't work they could not be able to afford food for their families.
