When a child commits a crime the parents should be held responsible for what the minor does and the parents should be the ones to pay for the damages. It is the parent’s fault that our society is known for having so many juvenile delinquent behaviors. The children should not be put in jail just because their parents failed to follow through with parenthood. If parents could raise there children with good care and the attention that every child needs then they can and will become good people.
It is the parent’s duty for the care of their children. Raising a child and educating them at home is the best way to being successful in the lives of children. It is the parent’s responsibility to look and see the path, which their children are walking in. If their children are not within the correct path and they are part of the society’s delinquent crime rate then the parents are raising criminals; the parents have failed to maintain their responsibility in raising their children. The parents need to teach and raise their children wisely.
They must talk with the children from what are wrong decisions that carry consequences and the good decisions that will lead them to success. Children must learn at a young age about how to be polite, respectful to others, and have manners. As parents they must take the time to teach their kids right from wrong in all categories, but in order to be successful in this they also need to dedicate quality time with their kids on a daily basis. This will allow them to see the errors they must fix and the things in which their children need more help on.
This is where discipline falls into place, parents must establish rules and regulations as their kids are young so that when they get into the real world they will be accustomed to obeying the rules and regulations of society. When a parent establishes discipline and teaches good morals their children will grow to become wise in life; however, it is the parent’s responsibility to teach their children from right and wrong. Many children learn right from wrong, good or bad, love and care from their parents.
Parents must realize that influences that children see are mainly from the parents. By looking at the parents of a child you can determine the characteristics the child will have. Right after birth takes place a mother raises her child with love and care as the child grows with the love and the influence of care they will also learn to establish the same love and care the mother has influenced upon them. Parents must learn to set the example as they raise their children but they must lead them by example as well.
They cannot expect their children not to drink or smoke if the parent drinks and smokes. Parents cannot expect their children to be respectful if they aren’t respectful to themselves or to their children. Everything a child sees or hears within its household they will take with them and put into practice, as they get older in life. It is very important that the parents understand that giving birth isn’t the whole job or duty, raising their children and educating them from the beginning is the biggest role.
Parents will have an everlasting effect on their children and they cannot deny paternity just cause of the crimes that their children commit. Each parent should be held accountable for their children’s actions. If the parent was good then the child will turn out to be good as a adult but if the parents was bad the child will be one of the delinquent kids breaking the law that we have in our days. Parents should be responsible for the actions of their children.
