Debate: Who's to blame for bullies?

Who's to blame for bullies? I think parents are responsible for thier children's actions. Communication or lack thereof is causing children to figure out who they are themselves, when it is the responsibility of the parents to help shape them to become a kind and compassionate individual.

  • Nov 19 2012: I agree, I think first and foremost the parents are directly to blame for bullies. I think poor parenting and poor examples demonstrated by one's elders takes a direct effect on a kid more then anything else. Terrible parenting is what I feel is the source of bullying and couldn't agree with you anymore Mendy. I think this is an on going issue for years and feel that kids are not the only victim of it. Thank you for sharing.
