    Should adults be criminally prosecuted for making their children fight and participating themselves?

    I just read where a 15 year old committed suicide with a gun.  In April two women held her down while their daughters punched and kicked her.  Something similar happened about a month ago at my school.  YouTube has many similar situations posted.

    I absolutely agree that parents should be held responsible for their minor children, especially if they participated.  Holding someone down in a beating is a Felony;  Aggravated Battery, and although I didn't hear the story, I would hope the women were indeed prosecuted regardless if they were related or not. 

    I think you will agree that children learn from their parents.  Unless there is something mentally wrong with the child, the parent is responsible for that child until they are adults.  I don't care if the parent is single, poor or uneducated.  They brought that child into the world to live among other people and they have a job not only to that child but to society in general to teach that child certain lessons which include the difference between right and wrong, respect for others and authority, tolerance for differences and empathy.  If that child fails and hurts someone, you can't solely blame that child for their actions.  Every choice that child makes is derived from the lessons that parent has taught and has shown. 

    People should always keep in mind that being a parent is not only the hardest job you will ever have, it is the most important.  You are making an adult person who will go out and make decisions that may change the world.  Nobody said it was easy.  If you can't handle the job, then just don't be a parent.

    Great question, by the way.

      Rosana I totally agree with you.  As a teacher, I've seen it all.

    You know this is hard question. But it does seem like children who are taught to fight brutally also perceive the rest of the worlds population as a danger to them. Such children fight if they need to or not. It is harder to teach a child to have love and patience in the world and not to lash our or harm self or others. But it has to be done. We have to teach children love and acceptance for people. I'm not sure teaching a child to fight and see themselves and everyone else as a danger is a good idea.
