No I do not think they should. However I think I can understand why you may have thought of this question. Rather than the disobedient children who try it and the parents are yet to find out. There are some that let there children wilfully get drunk in their home. I see no harm in teaching them to have a glass of wine with a cooked dinner, on special occasions, as they do in France. But that is to teach them how to respect alcohol. Not just chug it down and get drunk. I am the mother of four children and I would go crazy if any one gave my children alcohol under age. A parent should maybe imprisoned if they are willingly supplying their children with alcohol to let them get drunk. It is neglect , bordering on abuse in those situations.
ummm no way it should be the parents fault....its bad enough we get criticized for over protecting our children and then when we give them freedom we get criticized as well....so when and if they do drink its with there friends and thats when we r trusting them, because we dont want to confine them to the house so we r letting them have a little freedom...people r not understanding that kids have not changed...for example they r no different then the kids in the 50"s its just now the law is more strict so it sounds like kids r more destructive....but now more and more kids do not have the freedom like kids did back 20 to 30 years ago. The children have not changed...society and generations have changed
It depends. Some kids drink on their own & their parents have no idea so those parents shouldn't be jailed, they don't control their childrens actions, even though they are their parents & they should know everything, they don't, their kids are slick & know how to hide it, obviously. Then theres other parents that buy their children alcohol. My ex's dad used to buy him mary jane & alcohol whenever he wanted. Parents like that should be jailed automatically, even though the kid would probably get his hands on it one way or another.
no,not unless theres proof that they are bad parents. teenagers are gong to rebel though, and parents will try to do thei best, but if yhere not deliberatly forcing there kids to drink, its not their fault. and they cant keep an eye on their kids/teens 24/7. the kids and teens make there own good and bad choices and if there bad choices THEY alone should be made to deal with the consequences
It is not the parents fault. Kids know well enough to not pick up a bottle and drink. They also know the difference between milk, and alcohol. so, because they know right from wrong, it is not the parents fault. This is similar to the case of a child commits a homicide... are the parents to blamed? I DON'T THINK SO! the child, if he is 7 years and older, knows right from wrong! period.
NOPE, a parent can't supervise their child 24/7. there is an age where the child would be held accountable for their own actions and fined accordingly.
No because even though the parents are still responsible for the child they don't choose the actions made by the individual.
nah!it's not the parents who are considered responsible for this i don't think that the parents are jailed for this.
NO. Crime do not legitimate representation. Someone is responsible for their own mistakes.
