If children behave badly their parents should take responsibility and also be punished? Do you agree or disagree?
Punished While I certainly agree that parents are responsible for their children’s actions, I do not believed by some that if children break the law, their parents should be held responsible and agree that they should be punished.
Behavior to a large extent is dependent upon their upbringing, which in turn depends upon their the main reason why parents are responsible for their children’s actions is that children’s So, if parents are abusive and disrespectful, their children are also likely to behave in such a way parents. Young children imitate their parents and later on these behaviors become their habits. In addition, it is the onus of the parents to keep an eye on them so that they do not exceed their Limits and commit grave crimes.
However, at the same time, I do not agree that parents should pay the price for the actions of their children. Firstly, although children’s behavior depends upon their upbringing, it is certainly and peer pressure. So, it would be unfair to blame only the parents and punish them. Secondly, not the only factor. In fact, children’s behavior also depends upon external influences like media punishing parents would mean children stop taking responsibility for their actions. They would go in adulthood never having taken accountability for their actions. In adult life also, they would try to blame others for their actions.
Finally, although parents are responsible for teaching moral values to the children, children stillCommit crimes even if they are taught that are wrong. For example, many children are caught shoplifting even if parents have taught them that stealing is wrong. This has nothing to do with parents, but only the child committing the offence. In a way, punishing parents would also remove the feeling of guilt among children and they are more likely to commit crimes because they would think they can get away with it.
In conclusion, although I believe that parents are responsible for children’s actions, I cannotSupport the idea of punishing them.
