Why do you think there are "lots" of genetically-engineered "kids" out there? There's no evidence of them.
I can't recall the episode title, but there is an episode in season two of TNG when the Enterprise answers a distress call from a station that was doing experiments on children to improve immune systems. I think that qualifies as genetic engineering.
Oh, those kids. They seemed to be wards of the state, as they were human subjects of a government-sponsored genetic engineering experimentation program. You'll recall that they possessed immune systems so powerful that they would attack other people - which nearly caused Pulaski's death.

I doubt those children were allowed to leave the Darwin Research station where they were created. So they were effectively institutionalized, like the Jack Pack, but for different reasons.
