This phase just came out from my mind in this early morning, and i can't wait to share it over in MYLOT. This phase actually applicable and happens regularly in our daily life. you may have a clear picture by reading the following instance: Ken is 10 years old boy. he comes from a wealthy family and his parents is a businessmen, whose always need to travel around. so they seldom at home to accompany their son. this cause ken always want to attract people attention by being like an opposition party in the school. Finally, one day Ken is being caught as a shoplifter, with the reason he is actually trying to draw people attention on him. we can Understand the reason for Ken to execute the crime, but is it we should compromise what have Ken done? In my point of view, every person should take their own responsibility with their own action. So what is Mylotters view or judgement about this?????

Both need to be taking their own responsibility, Ken need to be punished and the parent as well. Parent always neglect the responsibility of taking care of their children by giving many excuses. For a kid, wealth doesn't mean happiness!

Yes, the kid should be punished so that he will know what's his mistake. However, i feel that the parent should also take the responsibility as they ignore their child in this way. Sometimes, parent thought that they work harly for the children to stay wealthy but they never realize what a kid needs.Love, every one needs LOVE

He's a 10 year old boy hungry for attention, if only his parents would take the time to be with him, then he wouldn't reach the point of having to get the attention of other people. Yes, each individual is responsible to their own actions, but a ten year old needs the help of the parents to help him learn that.

I agree with you we should take responsible of our own action, but we need also to consider that ken's parents were responsible of Ken behavior.
