Obviously you don't know what you're talking about. It's not mooching off our kids, it's called being a part of the family and pitching in to get the chores done. Stop on by and see how much has to be done each day. Guarantee you won't last long.

I think all children should have chores to do. It doesn't hurt them & it gives them responsibility. Farm kids do have a lot more chores to do than kids that don't live on farms, but as long as the parents are not working them till they are exhausted all the time I think it is ok. If you're part of a family you should help out around the house or farm, parents shouldn't have to do all the work, everyone in the family should do their part. If the kids don't want to be farmers when they grow up than that should be their choice, not everyone is cut out to be a farmer.

So, you have kids? If so, do you have them milk or help hay? I grew up getting up at 5 to help my dad in the barn before school, and after. I didn't choose to do it, it was expected of me and my brothers. Because it was the "Family" farm.

Around the house i can understand but making them work on the farm is like making them come to work with you and do your job. I do have kids I have beef cows, and if they help with hey they get paid just like I do. It teaches them that hard work pays off in the end.Some farmers use there kids to persue there career. Farmers expect kids to help them make there living witch should be there responsibility as head of household. Why should they have to do any more than any other kid it wasnt there choice to be born in a farm family.

I was a farm kid, loving everyminute of it! I learned so much about good working ethics, scheduling, you name it, it's learned on the farm, not to mention the healthy food between meat products and vegetables that we grew, packaged & froze. All of the kids in my family look back to being the best days of our lives. We are all exceptionally smart, we all now work very hard at our jobs being adults and none of us got in trouble or hurt, but we learned manners! We even learned about machinery, learned tons of things that molded the people we are today. We never looked at it like we being ordered to do the chores, it was part of life, a very happy life. Every child should be fortunate enough to grow up on a farm.

I wouldn't worry about THEIR college education when you can't figure out which There, Their, or They're to use in your sentence. This is where I tell you that you need to focus on yourself and get a life....maybe dust off the old 3rd grade English book? and "ColleDge"...? ummm....My parents make about $100,000, combined, a year and I still paid for my college education. It's called, "responsibility...maybe you should learn what that is and teach your children. Most people who run a farm, take it over from other family members to keep it going. Oh, and learn how to use punctuation. I seriously don't even know how to string that sentence together.......oh, also, Morrisville college offers a program for farming =)

I know this a old thread but all I can say is wow. Some people are truly ignorant. I'm raised on a farm, and work on another one and I can honestly say I don't like some of the things I have to do. I don't get paid to do farm work on my own farm because it's called getting a roof over my head and food on the table. Respect, responsibility, and a loving family is what I have earned by always helping out. If you have to pay your kids to help then I'm scared of the future generations to come. Welfare and a baby boom is all I can see happening.
