My four year old boy likes beading and can make earrings now. What exactly constitutes child labour or a sweat shop?

As a half term activity we went to a bead shop yesterday and he's now making jewellery for his nannie.

He's got quite a flair for it and i'm starting to see pound signs.

Would this be akin to sending him up a chimney?

hmm, i think he may be starting a new trend for earrings that don't match however.
