Today, is not an action of the parents,

Today,
it is really common that many crimes are caused by young people. Sometimes,
they commit crimes and social problems, which have severe consequences in
society. This is a complicated issue because authorities have to apply the law
to someone. This problem gets worse when people, who are searching to blame
someone, want to be responsible to the parents for the crimes committed by
their children. Other people agree that parents should be held responsible if
their children commit crimes under certain circumstances. For example,
negligence, children who are under twelve years old or in case of those
children who have a mental disorder. Even though the circumstances already gave
can be justifiable, this is unfair to parents because they will be punished for
a crime that they do not commit. Although it is true that parents have the
responsibility to raise and educate to their children, I believe that parents
should not be held responsible for the crimes of these teens due to children
are rational, who know what they are doing, and the crime is committed by
children, no parents.

The
first and most important reason to support that parents should not be held
responsible for the crimes of their children commit is that children are
rational as to know what they are doing. According to the official website Private
Writing (2017), “Children know when they are committing a crime and doing
something wrong. It has nothing to do with their parents.” So, while some people
think that these adolescents are solely making a mistake, children are still lucid
and know perfectly what they are doing. For that reason, children should pay
for their own crimes as adults do.

A second reason to support that parents
should not be blamed for the crimes of their children is that the crime is not an
action of the parents, it is an action of the child. The official website Private
Writing (2017), affirms that “If a kid gets in trouble, it’s easy to blame the
parents, attribute the mishap to how they were raised, the kind of family they
were born to. But that is what is wrong with this country” So, although it is
true that parents are responsible to inculcate their children a right behavior,
this not means that parents should pay for their children’s actions. In
addition, although parents impart children a moral education, this not mean
that children do or think the same. Moreover, most teens prefer to imitate the
actions of their peers than their parents. What is more, sometimes unruly young
people do the contrary adult’s order, and most especially in the adolescence. So,
parents are not guilty, the child is who commit the crime, therefore, he/she is
who should be punished.

To
summarize, Parents should not pay for their children1s crimes because two
important reasons. Firstly, children are human beings who have judgment as
adults to know what is correct or incorrect. And secondly, despite parents have
to raise their children, they are not the same person, the crime is committed
by the child, no parents. I disagree that parents should be responsible for the
crimes committed by their minors. In my consideration, each person should be
responsible for their own actions and crimes regardless of age. In case of
minor children, I think they should be guilty for his/her crimes, in this way,
they will not have the freedom to do what they want and will be more careful.
