SOrry to hear about the kid who died.
But nothin beats discipline like an ol spanking lol
My belief: it is the parents job to teach children right from wrong and the consquences that result from both actions, if the parents have failed to this, then i believe it is the parents fault, if the parents did teach their children this to the best of their abilities, then that means the child knew the consquences and knew that he was choosing wrong over right and therefore i would not blame the parents.
btw i onyl read madglees reply and skipped the rest of the thread, sorry if someone already brought this up.
If their abilities suck then maybe they werent meant to have children and that means that its still their fault. but there is no such thing as a perfect parent, or person for that matter, adn thats why i said best of their abilities, in the end it doesnt really matter who is to blame, what matters is what can be learned to prevent it from happening again. whether or not its the child or the parents fault, prevention must come from both sides. The onus is on the parents to teach their child right adn wrong, and the onus is on teh child to stick to their morals and etc.
ive noticed that shootings and lockdowns in high schools are becomign quite frequent now. the biggest scare in canada was at a community/local college in montreal a few years back, and the news went on for days about the attackers life story basically, they showed his blog and how he was into guns and that he wrote that he wanted to kill people etc. School is suppose to be a safe place, and so many security measures are taken to prevent outsiders from entering the school but it seems like the threat are the students themselves nowadays...
