Yes, and no. Every child is different, as is every parent. Different maturity levels and ages of children have a bearing on how much the parents need to tell them. It also has to do with common sense. I think that until the child is of a certain age, where they become aware of good and bad, right, and wrong, as well as what is dangerous and what is not, then yes, the parents, or guardians are solely responsible. The misconception of this things is the parents fault, unless the mental illness.

Life is about choices that a person makes

Children are supposed to be ignorant. They are after all children.
If the parent brings up the excuse that he or she had to go work for a double income so as to give their children what they want, then sorry its really because the parent finds work more rewarding than childrearing. If he or she chose this, don't start crying when the domestic helper does a poor job of teaching the child what is dangerous and what is not, because they are not the parents, they don't need to care.

Your choice, your responsibility

Teens are no longer children. If they want to kill themselves because so and so dumped them, then fine its their choice. As a parent, you would want to dissuade them, but if someone really wants to die, they'll succeed.

Dont blame the parents for what the child chooses to do.
The parents job is to shelter the child, feed them properly, and try their best to raise them.
If the kid still messes up, its not the parents fault. As long as they tried their best, in the end its the kid thats fucking up their own life. Honestly i hate when people go about blaming others. it pisses me off.


you dont know if the parents a 2 face or not who are you to judge, some parents are bitches still immiture my mom barely cooks for me and shit

Oh poor you, your mom doesn't cook for you? Then cook something yourself.You're 14 take some responsibility. Your laziness to cook your self, does not constitute an emergency on your family. Most families now-a-days don't cook every night. And "shit" isn't a description. And what do you mean by "a 2 face". That's stupid. *headdesk* I can't even think of a better way to phrase that, other than, that's blatantly stupid.

We are undeniably affected by our environment, but there is so much more to it than how we are raised by our parents. Our peers, other authority figures, media, and many other aspects of communal and modern living affect us all every day. On top of that, there is the human ability to reason and determine things for itself. Because of all of these influences, it is impractical to point a finger at an individual or group in particular and equally impractical to point a finger at everyone; thus, we must assign blame for the actions to the one who acts. That's just how it is, and it won't change unless we take very unpleasant, drastic measures, which may not guarantee anything either.

As for others keeping children safe, I'd say that's a rather important function of our society as a whole for its own sake - not just of the parents. If we do not protect the young, the society is not perpetuated.

It is completely the parents responsiblity for the child's safety. It's irresponsible parents who create stupidity amongst children, and stupidity leads to people getting hurt. The only thing about a child's safety that is out of the parents hand, is the stupidity of other people, like drunk drivers, for instance.

Until a certain age, yes. Children learn stuff faster than teens, and adults. Overall, it's the parents' fault if they don't teach their children to not do certain stuff.

I agree. Because I don't think parents can teach EVERY bad thing you can't do to their children. The children themselves have to find out.

Some of it is the parents responsibility and some of it is the child's responsiblity

It's the parent's responsibility to discipline the child... that goes without saying that when a child does something wrong, the parents are partly to take the blame.... it's like they didn't teach him well enough... but if they really are good parents but their children turned evil after they experienced independence then i don't really think it's their fault anymore.....
