Helping Parents, Families, & Caregivers

Should we hold parents of violent children responsible for their behavior?

Should we hold parents of violent children responsible for their behavior?

Very difficult reality for parents of violent youths who commit acts of crime and may have a mental health or behavioral problem. Did you know parents could be held liable for violence committed at the hands of a child, if the parent(s) knew the child could be violent? The problem with laws such as this is that it can be next to impossible to prove liability, but some cases, such as the Columbine shootings have resulted in large settlements totaling 1.56 million to victims and their families. 

   
As always, I wish you well
