Abstract
While we have focused heavily on the adverse outcomes of children's presence in agricultural worksites, it is important to maintain a balanced perspective. Agliculture offers many positive benefits for children. The largest youlll serving organization in the US, the National FFA (formerly Future Farmers of America), was chartered by the US Congress on the principle that agriculture provides unique opportunities for young people to develop "premier leadership, personal growth, and career success."H5 Future research should enhance our knowledge regarding the benefits and risks of living and working on farms so that injury prevention strategies, sllch as stricter child labor regulations, are based on scientific findings that will stand the test of time.
