Question by KandCsMommie: Parents: who do you hold accountable for your childs actions?
If your 15 year old got suspended for fighting would u blame that he watched UFC fights on TV and didnt get picked for the Varsity baseball team and had some aner over that and blah blah blah. Or would you give your kid a kick in the azz and tell them to get their shiat straight and spend more time with them ect.
If your 12 year old had sex and got pregnant would you blame britney spears? Is it “American Eagles” fault for selling short shorts? Or do you blame the fact that you’ve been too involved with work and golf lately? And that you really should have monitored her myspace usage more to see who she was talking to and what she is up to? SHould you have not let her stay over betty annes without talking to betty’s parents first to check things out?
There is a term in psychology called “personal efficacy”. Basically it means how much an individual takes resonsibility for themselves and things they are to care for (like children). It kills me every day that there are stupid women who win millions because they bought a hot coffee that they carelessly spilled on themselves.
It kills me that when a 10 year old weighs 200lbs because he eats at mcd’s 3 times a day everyday that it’s the chains fault for not listing at content. Because everyone doesnt already know that 90% of the food they sell will give u a heart attack 10 minutes after digesting it.
WHen did parents stop parenting and making it everyone elses job? I really just want to know. Why is you kids well being the problem of everyone else?
MOM-I said a stupid woman because 4-5 years ago a stupid woman spilled her hot hot mcd’ys coffee and tried to sue because it was hot and she burned herself with it.

I hold myself accountable up until they are a certain age. Then I hold myself and themselves accountable.
