More than 60% of working children live with their families and come from poor homes with parents who are unemployed or drug addicts forcing the kids to work in harmful conditions, IRNA quoted Vallioallah Nasr, an official of the State Welfare Organization (SWO) as saying.  Annually, 7000 street children across the country are supported by the government, he added.  Giving money to street children only encourages their families to force them on the streets and beg for more alms, he said.
