May I add the government has little to do with a child's life with the exception of education. This is nescesary as when given the choice, most children would choose to skip school in favor of staying at home and playing all day. If the government did not control education, that generation of children would grow up to be lazy slobs who can't get a job, resulting in a significant economic collapse.
it is their choice whether they want to be lazy slobs and you are just stereotyping all teenagers. Teenagers would not just sit down all day playing games. The definition of a slave is someone being forced to work without pay which fits what kids do.
