i think that children should be responsible for their actions. of course, their parents are factors in their behavior, but with the influences of the world, like television, the internet, and people and places you encounter everyday, classmates and friends, some children are swayed easily. some have their principles and morals rooted deep into their minds, but the influence of the world still affects them somehow.
i know a lot of kids who have had good parents and good households, but because of influences and peer pressure screw up their life in varying degrees.
also, most parents explain to their children what is right and what is wrong while they are still young, but again, the world influences them. some parents don't even know how their kids behave when out of view and earshot, because their children know when they're doing something wrong and hide it from the parents the best they can with the help of friends. so the 'rents think their kid is doing alright, until something bad happens and they find that everything was an illusion.
