Each has a benefit to the well being of the kid. Why regulate against it? The government is overreacting for some reason on the work portion.
Has anyone come into this thread saying the regulation is a good thing? I haven't seen a single endorsement; the closest is VS saying it's a poorly-executed attempt at a good idea of curbing abuse.

Good, if the government could be as rational as we are, the country would be in better shape!

If this group of @ssholes were running the government, the country would look like Beyond Thunderdome in a month.

I believe that is the key, no matter the environment where a child is raised. If the child is involved in any non-school activity to an excess, I believe it has the potential to be a negative impact on school performance. This especially includes an excessive amount of time spent on TV, video games, etc.

I believe the before sun-up to past sun-down work day of a farmer is over-blown. Yes, there were some days like that, but far from the norm. Now there are some farmers that do that. Many of them are workaholics similar to the guy who spends 14-16 hours in the office. Dad worked as hard as anyone, but he rarely missed one of our games including out of town ones. In fact, Dad rarely worked after finishing the afternoon milking around 6.

Mom and Dad did both stress academics, plus Dad loved sports and passed that along also.

Says the reality-challenged limp dick himself. Saying you are concerned that potential abuses could be going on in family-run businesses such as farms but that the potential problem does not rise to the level of creating a law does not equate sympathizing with the law. TexasLogic != logic in this case.

From making the incandescent light bulb an outlaw to now this! 4H Club and FFA training would be replaced by a 90 hour f**king federal course????? Maybe Harry Reid could make cowboy poetry a requirement. And we all know that this administration knows best what is best for us, they have sooooo much experience in all matters.
You people better use your brains and vote these people OUT in Nov.

Got to go with TexasLogic on this one. Maybe it's my background, but the government needs to stay out of the family business area. If a situation is bad enough that the government feels it needs to intervene, we have child abuse laws already on the books. Until then, it needs to KTFO.

Just who said this law needed to be put on the books? No one.

I think you're reading things into folks' comments that just aren't there. In your case, that's understandable given your background.

Next the Obama Administration will make me give my 9 year old minimum wage for making his bed, cleaning his room and taking out the trash!
