In a lot of states they now have truancy laws. This means parents can be punished for not making sure their children are attending school. By punishment I mean being on probation and some even have jail time. The government expects that we as parents raise our childrent o be productive people. Not going to school, is not productive.

You can say that a child belongs to its parents but in what way do parents own their child?

I can think of one way: Ownership equals responsibility. If you own a dog that bites your neighbor, you are responsible for their medical bills. If you own a car and someone drives it and wrecks it, you are responsible for damages. Similarly, if your child breaks the law or damages property, you are responsible for making sure the damage gets paid for and making sure your child makes it to court or community service requirements. Because the child belongs to you, you are responsible for his/her actions.
