Yeah, the root of a lot of the problems (and why childhood fucks us up) is that children aren't treated as human beings. Most people seem to think that the whole point of a child's life is to be molded into whatever it is adults want them to become. Alternatively, that the main issue with children is to stop them bothering adults. This is done with some mixture of coercion, bribery and trickery. And from here it's only a short step to any of the recognised kinds of abuse (as if the whole situation of coercive control and denial of agency isn't already abusive). Probably why it's all so common.
