Your boss brings a Thanksgiving dinner. You don't like it so you decide you will celebrate with them and then pick something up for lunch. Your boss confines you to a room without eating.
Or how about your boss preventing you from watching TV at night because of your poor performance at work?
Or your boss destroying your home computer because of your poor performance at work?
An adult treating another adult like a child... is abuse (at least when the other adult isn't willing... I mean, there are some fetishes out there).
Your analogy falls apart as soon as you include two adults.
