For all the talk about family values in the US, it is appalling how badly children can be treated in this country, either by parents thinking that children are their possessions and subjecting them to abuse or by employers taking advantage of the laws to exploit them for their labor.

I had not realized that child labor laws were so lax in this country that you can make them work under such harsh and even dangerous conditions.
