You own your child until they are 18 years old unless they graduate at 17 and go to college. If you can tell your child what to do, how to do it, reward them or punish them, that makes them your property. Sure, if you go off the definition term then no they are not your property.
Or you can use the term child instead of using the term it.
It's obvious you don't understand parenthood still, you mold and control your child until their 18 years old.
How about work with the offspring.
Yeah, which is sad. But if I can have kids and not own them, then I'd start as well.
You seem to be confusing own with responsibility.
WE MUST HAVE MORE PENCIL CONTROL!!
*No more than 6 pencils per pack!
*More background checks when making any pencil purchase!
*Ban on all pencils larger than 1/2 inch in diameter and longer than 8 inches!
AMEN for all PENCILS no one needs a PENCIL
