Children Are Parents Responsibilities ….NO ONE ELSE’S !!!


I feel no one else but parents are responsible for where children end up. Do you agree? It seems at the moment people like to blame the government for all the world’s problems. I strongly disagree with this. A child is a parents responsibility. I wonder whether some people should take their child directly to Government headquarters when born. For example, the Beehive here in New Zealand, and the White House in the U.S. When you have children, you need to take responsibility for them. Wherever your child ends up, whether it’s a good or bad place, it is the result of how they were brought up. I guess you have heard the story of some children “getting in with the wrong crowd”. I disagree with that. If parents bring their children up well then the children will not go near the wrong crowd. They will know what is right and what is wrong.We have been having some drug issues here in New Zealand over the last month or so. Many speaking in the media have been saying that people get dragged into it. I saw one man recently on television who said the children are not to blame.Really? B.S !!! If these kids are brought up right they would know right from wrong. Also, it was said that parents are partly to blame for children’s truancy. ONLY PARTLY  ? …. I don’t think so !! I’m proud to say that I have never tried any sort of drugs. It seems many think it’s ok to try the likes of cannabis.It’s only recently become legal in some countries. Yes, I used to party when I was young and there were times I had too much to drink. I think most people would have had these sort of times when they were young but that’s as far as I ever went.

As I said, children are no one but parents responsibility. There is talk here in New Zealand that many children live in poverty. A lot of this talk is generated at the moment because we have our election in 7 weeks time.We’ll be electing a new government. ( I hope we stick with the same one we have now )


Maybe some truly do live in poverty, but how many children are in these families. Recently on TV, the media were with a family discussing this. Guess how many children were in this family? SEVEN !! People should only have as many children as they can afford. That is part of the reason why my wife and I stopped at 2. There are complaints about the likes of the costs for school fees and uniforms, but once again this is a part of having children. People should consider this sort of thing and this should be part of the decision to have children full stop.

So, our children are our responsibility, and I am determined to bring mine up in a way that they know right from wrong and become good citizens.

To Your Success,

    Interesting post. I do agree with you to an extent – children are of course a parent’s responsibility. Though, living in a rural area of Northland, I see the crippling poverty with my own eyes and it’s shocking, as is the lack of education that these people grow up with. This issue has been out there for a lot longer than the election campaign. It affects many families with 1 or 2 kids – it is a bit of a myth that they all have these humongous families (of course they are out there, but perhaps not as predominantly as you assume).

    People will always breed. I completely agree with you that as rational, educated adults, we should only have as many kids as we can afford. But sadly a lot of people affected by poverty do not grow up even with that basic education that many of us have benefited from, and they don’t have that awareness, acceptance or motivation.

    It can be tough to rationalise though. There is certainly a sense of entitlement and selfishness out there, and there are a lot of kids being raised in pretty terrible conditions in NZ that even poverty cannot excuse.

    I totally agree with you Bryce! I have a son and I know that I am responsible for his education, not the school system even if he spends the majority of his day there.

    And to take it a step further, now that I am an adult I can see that I am the one responsible for my actions and where I end up. A lot of people these days love to play the blame game and be the victim.

    Though I understand where you are coming from I believe you are wrong. Parents cannot be expected to take the fall for their children’s actions. A child is still a person and has their own mind to make. Though their actions maybe be to stand by their parents when they are young as they grow older they will develop their own opinions and will find right from wrong for themselves. This should not be blamed on their parents. A child is a person not an object!
