Conclusions on bead making
1. Bead making became an industrial activity that was pursued obsessively; the work was difficult and uncomfortable and it was painful for children especially those who lacked dexterity and speed.
2. The quota system made the work onerous and pressurised and a source of stress and anxiety.
3. Supervision by lay workers or nuns to ensure quantity and quality on pain of punishment created work conditions that would not have been tolerated in factories.
4 . Using the children for this work deprived them of normal childhood recreation that was necessary for emotional, social and psychological development.
