Transcript of Parents Are Responsible for Child's Bad Behaviors

Parents Are Responsible for Child's Bad Behaviors
The Sides:
Pro: Those who agree with this idea believe that parents should be held accountable for a bad action or behavior while the child is under the age of 18.
Con: Those who disagree believe that it is not always (100% of the time) the parent's fault, there are other factors and influences involved in a child's behavior.
Ethos
Parents held accountable for their children's delinquent behavior are more likely to reinforce appropriate behavior in the youth.

Juvenile offenders are responsible for one-third of all reported property crimes.

Over the past fifteen years, use of guns by youthful offenders has increased by nearly 20 percent.

With the increase in juvenile crimes, parents should be a part of the consequences in order to actively discipline as quick as the issue came up.
Logos
In order to prevent an increase in poor behavior within children, it makes sense to have the parents involved.

Children are with their parents as much as they are in school, and a child will better understand consequences if they are equal at home and at school.

If there is any tendency for parents to avoid the problems of their child's constant bad behavior, involving the parents keeps up with their child's discipline notices.
Pathos
Children can become tired and unaffected by disciplines imposed by institutions such as school. With this approach, discipline is effective:

Although a child may not care about any punishments handed down on him or her, often there will still be a desire to avoid actively harming the parents (a sort of fear).

A child seeing their parents punished for their crime has a greater affect on the child than direct punish does.
Counterargument
The biggest counterargument against this case is in the instance of abuse.

Overbearing or abusive (verbally or physically) parents may find an even greater excuse to abuse their child if they are found doing something wrong.

The main argument is directed toward "marginal parents" those who are not actively engaged in their child's behaviors outside of the home. Abusive parents and children who are victims of abuse have different behavioral and familial issues outside of disciplinary issues.
