In conclusion, we all make mistakes no matter how small the crime may be. Mostly adolescents are charged for their crime when they get caught. They generally know why they are doing something wrong, they have to learn their mistakes, and influence by the people around them are just some reasons why they should be held responsible for their actions and not their parents. The parents should never be held responsible unless the parents assisted in the crime, so it is time to hold young people responsible for their actions. Parents can not be held responsible for their children actions every minute of the day.
