Exactly! I have friends my age who live on farms and yet they're on their phones texting all day... while I'm working in the garden or doing the myriad of things I've got to do.. and it's a ton of fun! I couldn't imagine being on the phone all day... I'm lucky I even have the time to get on the computer. Lol. I love being outside and doing stuff, even it that means mucking out stalls... and my girls are the same way. They both love being around it all and even if I'm doing something they can't help with they enjoy at least being around, watching and learning.

It's the best way to grow up for sure. :)

I think your government should have a law stating that every child SHOULD do some sort of outdoor manual labor on a regular basis! Not like you are sending your kid up a factory chimney to sweep out the soot for Pete's sake!

My 7-year-olds LOVE driving the tractor (with help) and feeding the chickens.

I'm a BAD mommy.

I actually envy kids who get to work on farms/ ranches... I'm 17, and I sincerily wish I had the opportunity to work on a farm when I was little. Heck. I want to work on a farm/ ranch now. I wish I grew up on a farm/ ranch.

Who thinks of stuff like this?

I really like replacing FFA and 4-H with 90 hour government safety courses.

Rancher I love that pic! You look like you're 100 feet up in the Air. Priceless! What person wastes taxpayer's money on crazy proposals such as the aforementioned? In some schools here in our country they have even banned balls of any sort in the playground. Things are just getting more and more ridiculous by the day!

While this looks ludicrous, it is very serious, and they have NOT dropped it, just fallen back right now to regroup. It is still very much an issue, and it will be raised again.

Fight back now, or we will have more ignorant laws to deal with. And more farms going under.

And while you think it can't happen? Just wait if it passes or a version of it does. Funny how they don't seem to be able to do anything about the crackhead parents, or the ones selling their kids to the sex trade, but are willing to wipe out kids working on farms.

Make no mistake, there is something behind this, beyond the "safety of farm kids", possibly the "need to have illegals/immigrants" to work if the kids are banned from it. Follow the money honey, is what I always say.

But this will come back, or be hidden in another bill and passed.

Be vocal, be alert to what is going on, and make sure you let your elected officials in DC and your capitol know what you think about this.

Or we will wake up and it will be law.
