Gulliver tells the reader that children are raised by the state rather than their parents. Different classes learn about different things. The nobility's children, for instance, learn about honor, justice, courage, modesty, clemency, religion, and love of country. Children do not "owe" their parents as the sex instinct is natural (parents come together). Parents have to pay the state for the support of their children.
