India and other countries with a lower quality of life are aware of the problem of child labour and are taking steps to address it. We aren't ready to move forward unless we can agree on the most fundamental aspects of ending child labour. Parents' knowledge and attitudes concerning the dangers of child labour were studied using a descriptive design method. A total of fifty moms and fathers were selected using the purposive sampling method. To acquire the information, researchers used a questionnaire to gauge participants' understanding of child labour and the dangers it poses. It was the researcher who came up with both of them. Use of the split-half method was used to test the tool's reliability. We were able to trust the knowledge questionnaire (r = 0.81; p 0.05). In this poll, the majority of parents had knowledge levels that fell between average (52 percent) and poor (48 percent). 68,000 parents said they were doubtful, while just 32,000 agreed with the premise that child labour has negative implications. Correlation coefficient (0.37) demonstrated that parents' knowledge and attitudes were linked to selected demographic characteristics. Fortunately, there was a positive association between these two variables. A person's age, earnings, and educational attainment were all taken into account. It appears that parents are only minimally aware of the risks of child labour and are unwilling to support it based on the findings of this study For their children's future success as adults, parents who have a better understanding of this critical social issue will have a leg up. Because of this, parents became more aware of the dangers of child labour as a result of the researcher's health education leaflet distribution.
