Do you think it is justifiable or okay for a young adult to blame their bad behavior on their parent
Many adolescents blame their bad behaviors on their parents or the people who basically raised them! when is this justifiable or is it okay for them to think this. There are many different situations but, if someone flat out says; well what do you expect I'm mothers/fathers kid! Is this an okay reason or just an easy cop-out?
In our society we hold parents responsible for teaching their children right from wrong, instilling moral behaviors, being a role model, providing them with the necessities in life food, clothing, shelter, access to education, nurturing and helping them to develop self-esteem and confidence.
In essence the primary role of a parent is to produce an independent self-reliant productive contributing member to our society.
They are our future. They only get one set of "formative years".
At some point a young adult has to take responsibility for their choices in life regardless whether or not they had great parents.
However it can't be overlooked that people whose parents put in the time and effort tend to have less trouble adjusting to adulthood. Some adults have to play catchup during their 20s & 30s..
kids and teens copy everything that parents did. If we parents educate them well, there won't be any problems
My parents did a great job raising us so there were no big problems. I've had friends that would blame their parents and then claim it was an easy excuse for their own mistakes. They later admitted it was the wrong environment they were around and yes they were young. Few years after that they realized there was no one to blame but their selves.
Everyone is responsible for their own behavior. Bad examples can lead to inappropriate behavior in children. However, at some point a child must realize that what he witnessed in his family or was told was not always good or right. As the child ages, he must maintain his moral compass and choose to follow a path of kindness, love, friendship and understanding of others, or take the easy way out and say that since his parents did it. As children grow, they learn and much of what they do learn, they do not like because it is wrong. It is a tough task, but the child has to grow faster and often become the standard that the parents must try to reach. Sometimes this is impossible, then it is up to the rest of us to pray that these people find the right path and the help they need. This might involve intervention by other family members, teachers and friends. Everyone should be prepared to help. I know this puts a big burden on the child, but it is one he will appreciate when he is older.
Hi Delilah! The child's overall behavior develops with respect to the atmosphere he lives in. Since from his birth, parents happen to be the common element of the atmosphere so the good or bad behavior of the child goes to their account, its but obvious, no exaggeration involved, the matter is straight and simple. Therefore, parents have to concentrate on the child’s overall development, not only good education for the future and play toys for the entertainment are to be provided but a child should be nourished with good manners and conducts with equal seriousness and importance. There can be no greater gift from the parents to their children than teaching them manners and making them a person of good conduct.
Since for overall behavior the society matters the most, therefore every societal aspect should act as a supporting agency for an overall development, the schools, the colleges, the religious institutions... The greater conduct of person depends on how coherently the society has ensured its contribution for his personality development
At some point, your life is your own. You must take responsibility for it.
There's blame and there's excuses. For example one's tendency for domestic violence maybe was caused by growing up in a home with domestic violence where it became in the realm of "normal" to you, but it is no excuse for it. You CHOSE your actions and you have the power to be better.
Overall, I don't accept except those excuses.
