All kids need to have chores like they used to. It would teach them good work ethics and responsibility. And they wouldn't have so much time to get into trouble.

The government is controlling more and more of our lives all in the name of safety. Our rights are being taken away every day. Before long we will be under total government control. We need to think about that whenever a new law or ordinance is passed without a public vote...taxes on top of taxes, helmet and seatbelt laws, smoking bans, to name just a few, and now this.

A little hard work wouldn't hurt anyone. It actually turns them into decent, hard working adults. If you just leave it up to the parents, they're not gonna learn to do anything for themselves. I mean come on!! Children have been helping with chores I don't know how long, why change it? It shapes their character.
