I grew up on a ranch in southern California and helped with most of the chores from the ripe young age of 8. In turn, I obtained a strong work ethic and an appreciation for pulling my own weight. Too bad more young people can't do this these days

BS. Taking advantage of children like this is finally being addressed. Thank God. You want to farm, pay a fair wage to farm labor, don't take it out on children.

Good for you. It also taught you modesty and the benefits of non-exaggeration.

Growing up in Michigan I picked blueberries, strawberries, cherries, and helped bring in the apple harvest in the in the fall and did all before the age of 16. I road my bike probably more than a thousand miles in a summer, I still had plenty of time to play with my friends, take family vacations and do all the things kids do or used to do during summer break, and I am a better person today because of the lessons learned working as a youth. My parents didn't make me go out and get a job directly, I could have stayed at home all summer doing nothing and being a couch spud like most American teens, or be out terrorizing the neighborhoods like most teens today are doing, but if I wanted to buy something for myself other than the essentials that they provided to survive, I had to earn the money on my own. Kids today take life for granted, they don't understand what it is to work for an honest days wage. Kids today have no morals, have no work ethics, have no pride, they only think about themselves or what they can take from someone else, and it's 100 percent the parents fault. It's the parents fault not because they didn't make their kids go out and get a job, it's their fault because they are failing to instill any type of morals or value in a child's life, it's just easier for a parent to give their child whatever they want instead of teaching them any type of life skills. It's the lazy parents that are killing this country, It's the lazy parent that is making room for all the illegals to invade this country, rape our healthcare system and welfare programs. Growing up in the berry fields, orchards I never saw or met one migrant worker let alone an illegal one and yet all the produce got picked and made it to market. Politicians and lazy parents do more damage to this countries economy than any terrorist could do.

Children need to have responsibilities to. It teaches them good work ethics. They want children to grow up now thinking that life is nothing but fun and video games. They are becoming lazy, fat, zombies with nothing to do.
If it is against the law for children to help there parents on the farm, it will finish off all the family farms. All that will be left will be giant farms like mega dairies.
