Writer's Block: Leading a horse to water

Should parents be held responsible for the criminal actions of their teenage children?

I am a parent of 6 children. Four of them are teens.

From personal experience, I have learned that sometimes in spite of our best intentions as parents, teens make unwise decisions.

The consequences of unwise decisions need to be upon the teen.

And, I tell them that right up front.

Oy vey, with the unwise decisions!! Having an impulsive ADD son and a 'Houdini" son has been a challenge!! Lots of prayer is required!!

My dad would say, "If you get arrested, I'm not bailing you out. You can rot in prison for all I care." :P

Haha. Nah, it was the prison stories I heard at church. (For a few years I went to a church where easily half the congregation were just out of prison.)

God's provision. :) I probably would've gone to prison if I hadn't been too scared to do some things...
