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: A child’s situation. A child who doesn't have parents and is in the 'system' can have good and bad experiences. Also, a child who lives’ in poor and bad neighborhoods. This can have as bad of an impact on a child as a bad parent. Don't always blame the parents. Life is tough and kids sometimes have to make there own choices based on their current situation, and those choices are not always the best.
