Who Should be responsible for underage children?

By definition of underage, it depends on each country or we should go global perspective which defines an underage person to be below eighteen(18) years of age.
To some parents, a child is a child whatever the age the person is. It also depends on the income status- working or jobless, dependent or independent etc. They see it as duty or responsibility to provide care, love and encouragement until the person moves out to begin a new life…
But we have another category of parents who have no time for their children. They do not even have a clue what children do when alone out there. And making children feel like strangers at home.
To them, children are like the worst liability that comes in life and they seem not to care about children go about in their private life.
We see children as young as below the age five (5) going to school unaccompanied or worse, playing dirty games with other children.
When we come to the use electronics, children might be accessing sensitive information and materials on televisions, internet or in real life without being warned against such behaviors. It is like raring free range domestic animals in your land, what you want to see is that they are free and you have all the time to do what you want without interference from anything or anyone.
Sad that when the situation gets out of hand, that is the time one will run trying to salvage the situation when already too late.
As a parent, it is your responsibility to know your child better than anyone else out there. Try to control what they see, feel and hear as much as possible.
Caring for a growing child is fun, but sometimes it gets nasty. Having a loving heart brings everything inline with your desires for that child. Your future and your child’s life in future is determined by what you do to it when young. Parental love should be the leading aspect in raising children, nothing other.
