parents need to be held responsible

If your child is out having sex and running the streets and they are having sex. If the child can not be honest and tell the truth then we can not make things right if they cannot tell us who they have been with and who they have been messing with. We need laws to get parents involved and make things right.

Okay, I understand what you are saying but you have to understand that unless you are a parent of a teen, its just not that black and white. I have raised two teens. A girl and a boy. They were taught they would not run the streets and that we had to know who they went with and where they were going and what time they were going to be home. They were held accountable or they received the consequences. I did not have to worry about either of them running out and having sex with anyone either. That is how I raised them. That said: A lot of parents do what I do but their kids still find ways to get round it. These parents also make the kids face the consequences too. Not all parents just let their kids run the streets at all hours and not all kids participate in sex. There are also laws in a lot of cities and towns that state curfews for week nights and weekends usually the latest on week nights is 10 pm and weekends is 11 pm. If those kids are caught out after those times, they might find a police officer asking them what they are doing out and have to face those consequences. There are enough laws on the books these days about how to handle kids and what the parents are liable for.
