I think parents should be in trouble for their childrens actions because they are the ones who raised them.


I think that children who are very young (between the ages of 0-8) are not responsible for their behaviour, as they do not have superior cognitive abilities, nor are they able to properly think for themselves, apart from what their parents have taught them, but children between the age of 9 and 18 most definitely are able to discern what they should and should not do in society.

Just as a disclaimer, I actually agree with the Pro arguer. I am merely arguing for the Con side, however, to increase my skills at arguing for things I don't necessarily believe.
