Even though I would love them dearly, be there for them, and *want* to protect them from everything....I know I wouldn't be able to protect them from everything, and they need to take responsibility for their actions...not hide behind someone else, and depend on them to get them out of the situations.
Although I would be responsible for protecting them, I would also be responsible for teaching them right from wrong, and disciplining them.
If they done something illegal, and there was proof that they did in fact commit a crime, then I would tell them they need to take responsibility for their actions, and learn from their mistakes. Like Mandyloo said, they are not above the law...and helping them get away from the consequences won't help them any. It will only teach them that they can do anything, and get away with it, because mommy will always protect them, and get them out of bad situations they got themselves into.
No they need to learn from there mistake me talkin from expericin once i did somethin bad an i had to leanr from it my parents didnt protect me an i learned from my mistake an i kno never to do it again! if your always there from your chilld there gnna turn to you when there in troulbe than there never gnna learn to stand up for there mistakes
No, so long as I knew my daughter was guilty. Now if I had any doubt I would protect her fiercely, but if she was guilty I would make her deal with the consequences. I would still stand by her side every step of the way, I wouldn't turn my back on her, regardless of what she had done.
depends what crime.. sexual toward a person no matter what the age then no.. id kick teh crap out of them. anything else yes i would. ive always got an alibi from friends and family so ill always do the same for them.
If i knew and had proof they were guilty, no, although they are my child and i love them, they are not above the law and i wouldnt be doing them any favors to try and help or protect them from their consequences.
If i had kids they would have to pay. Kids are your kids and it hurts but they need to learn mom and dad won't always be there to help them.
No. I believe that actions must have consequences and if my child does an illegal act, they need to learn from it.
