Why in the hell would any parent want the Government to regulate any chore we assign to our children be it on the farm or in the house? That is just more Government bullshit!

Are we talking about parents assigning chores to their own children on their own farms, or are we talking about children hiring out to farmers for a wage?

The title of the thread is "Should we regulate farm chores as child labor, or should it be up to the parents?" It is base on "Proposed federal rules would limit kids' work on farms." So we are talking about the child's parent deciding when and where on a farm or any farm for that matter if the child properly and enjoys doing it.
You can read this story or Google one that suits your reading.

GRAND RIDGE, Ill. Tossing hay into cattle pens is the first chore Austin Walter remembers doing on his parents' farm. When he was 9, he got his first lesson in operating a tractor in first gear only, his dad, Darren, says, "so I could go catch him."
Austin, who is now 14, tends heifers, makes sure the barbed-wire fence around the pasture is intact and helps clean equipment and care for calves on his grandfather and great-uncle's bigger farm a couple of miles down the road.

"This is what I want to do," says Austin, an A student and football player who has won many awards for showing livestock at fairs. "If you grow up in the farm atmosphere and you're safely trained and you enjoy it, I think you should be allowed to."
