Parental responsibilities

I always believed that parents all over the world played a very dominant role in the development of their children who are under the age of 18 years old, due to which fact they have to be fully responsible for their children.

However, there are certain conditions in which some parents want to be free of their natural responsibility for their children .
And that's perhaps what Madlyn Primoff, a New York lawyer, has in her mind when she kicked her 10 and 12 years old daughters out her car one Sunday.
According to the New York Times, at that time Ms. Primoff was so frustrated with her two daughters who would not stopped bickering, that after driving 3 miles from her home in downtown White Plains, N.Y., she kicked those children. She was later arrested by the Police on charges of endangering the welfare of children, and stayed overnight in jail and released after she paid a bail of US$ 1,500.00 and has to return back to the Court on 21 May 2009.

Beside that, in Indonesia currently there has been controversial news reports about a woman i.e Daisy Fajirina, who has allowed her own 16 years old beautiful daugther i.e. Manohara, to be married last August to a 30 years old Prince of Kelantan, Malaysia, whom she and her daughter barely knew. Daisy is currently complaining to the news media that Manohara (now 17) has been brutally mistreated by her husband (now 31), and she therefore demanded our government and everyone else to help her get her daughter back.

Although I symphatize with Daisy in facing her problem, however considering that our Mariage Law No 1/1974 stipulated that Indonesian under the age of 21 years old can only be married if their parents permit them to do so, therefore I believed that she played a very dominant role in the problem that her daughter is facing now.

I am very sad to know that some parents can be very devastated in handling their children. I believed that if parents would always stick to their responsibilities, they would not have very bad problems with their children.

excellent article, I find it very sad that some parents can act so much out of haste and not think about the well being of their children first
