Parental Responsibility Act: Paying for the crime of your child

Last week I spoke about holding parents responsible for the violent behavior of their child. The question right now is: “Should we hold parents responsible or should be not?” This debate has arisen again with the recent tragedies including minors retaliating or harming others in school districts. In Pennsylvania, a recent tragedy has left a rural neighborhood shocked, confused, and in pain (literally). Read more about the story at my sister-site: PsychCentral/Caregivers. 


Find out more about the state laws that hold parents responsible for their child’s behavior.

As always, stay informed,
