Yes they should because a parent’s love is much better than anyone esle
(Hassan(Uganda) at October 13, 2017 5:07 am)
No some parents do not know how to up bring their children
(Julius(Uganda) at October 13, 2017 5:08 am)
Training must begin in the home while the children are small and this is done by the parents because the first relationship is built by the parents then to others
(Solo(Uganda) at October 13, 2017 5:12 am)
yes because they are responsible for giving birth to me
(julius(uganda) at October 26, 2017 11:06 am)
yesparents are respansible because of the love and care they have for their children
(John(uganda) at October 26, 2017 11:15 am)
No two people can be fully responsible – parents must take responsibility but need others to support them
(Lis (UK but on hoiday in uganda) at October 26, 2017 11:21 am)
y E+99 ++ – 6 9 Yes because the parents both learn t0 know their children’s likes and dislikes
(Alex(Uganda) at October 26, 2017 11:22 am)
Julio i disagree with you becaue parents can learn to bring up their children if they give them time.
(julio(uganda) at October 26, 2017 11:25 am)
(IBRA (UGANDA) at October 26, 2017 11:29 am)
yes John you are rigth because if achijd is not shown the love and care then a child might feel as if he or she is discriminated.
(Julio(uganda) at October 26, 2017 11:38 am)
I think the parent has a responsibility to ensure their child(ren) are safe & are given the opportunity to thrive & prosper but they don’t need to do this alone. Help can come from family, friends, the workplace – and it should be encouraged that any parent struggling should be able to ask for help & have somewhere to go to get it.
(Emma UK at October 26, 2017 11:39 am)
I agree because, parents choose to have children. So they have to take care of them. But some parents need help.

Who do you think should help the parents Edward?
(Nicola UK at October 26, 2017 11:56 am)
parents should be greatly responsible for raising their children because this greatly affects their children’s performance and concentration in class.
(Brenda(Uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:34 pm)
Hi brother Hassan, what can you say on some of the children who are well braught up by their grandmothers and Aunts batter than those brought up by their biological parents since you say parents do it best.
(EMMA(uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:46 pm)
Nicola i think our grandparents can help the parents on some of the skills on upbringing the children
(Ibra(Uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:52 pm)
Yes Emma i agree with you however dont you think you will be encouraging spoon feeding to the parents if the ask for help
(Ibra(Uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:56 pm)
at Nicola: I think that the government should help with providing money for parents. And build some projects to teaching parenting skills to parents.
(Edward at October 26, 2017 12:59 pm)
its true julius that some parents don’t know how to bring up their children and if its like that, then the people who atleast have some skills of doing this have to come on ground and empower them. this truelly helps the community and the child him/her self to become useful and live a sensible kind of life. trust me Julius that if you come out to equip these parents with the skills of good parenting the child and the community will benefit alot from this and you will love it because you will have left a legacy behind.

Parents should be responsible for their children and provide support to ensure they have learned enough to live independently when they become adults themselves

Sometime children need specialist support/ or removing from their parents. One parent can bring up a child just as well as two. But financially they should both support their children

sincirely speaking its true Leigh amidst whatever challenges that the family experiences be it financially, socally, etc we instead need to empower this family about how to go by that but i some times dont recommend removing a child from parents and putting the child some where for special care unless if the responsible parent has gone insane or mad
(Steve (Uganda) at October 26, 2017 1:07 pm)
I think a child with only 1 parent is missing something compared to those with two parents. I think we should aim for 2 parent families

While they are still children yes. Hopefully as a parent you will have helped your children to support by giving them all the skills needed. Some parents may say that never stop helping their children, but I think as you progress to an adult its your responsibility to try and stand on your own two feet. Circumstances may come along that prevent you doing that and you may to the help of others, but you should always try and rely on others.

If two people have had children they should be responsible for their upkeep and their care until the children are old enough to look after themselves. This of course changes with age. Some children may mature eariler than others and are capable of looking after themselves. In the UK it is considered that children take responsibility at either 16 or 18.

Yes Parents should be responsible for the children because, A parent knows and understands the child more, the relationship between a parent and her child is always strong, even if a child is stubborn, a parent Will always find a way to train up a child in the right way to grow, so parents must be 100% responsible for their children

But who should give this time? Is it the parents? The teachers? The neighbours? The other relatives? Who is most important to a child’s development?
(John UK at October 26, 2017 11:05 am)
Agreed – it can be anyone not just the parents. I think having a number of influential (positively) adults in a child’s life is important in helping to shape how they see the world.
(Emma UK at October 26, 2017 11:40 am)
yes it’s true, the more time you give to children it’s the more you make their eyes open into their future. this shouid be by parents or any one mature in mind near them.
(Julio(uganda) at October 26, 2017 11:51 am)
I agree with you because in the end they learn most from their parents.
(Edward at October 26, 2017 12:18 pm)
Charity begins at home so the time should be given by the parents
(Ibra(Uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:20 pm)
Hi bother John, i second your but to me i think that besides the teachers, neighbours and relatives, parents are the most foundermental body to the child’s grouth and development so they take the biggest weight of the log.

Thats very correct,parents should. Bring up their children… I love to be part of that debate
(Emma Uganda at October 25, 2017 7:31 pm)
No – family should be responsible but that isnt always parents. Lets not forget the role played by older siblings, aunts, uncles, grandparents etc. I was raised by my older sister after my alcoholic mother abandoned us. She took brilliant care of me and I couldnt be more greatful. Saying that only parents matter doesnt work for so many families like mine.
(Sandra USA at October 25, 2017 7:41 pm)
Hannah i agree with you because if children are not taken care of by their parents then whose responsibility.
(Alex(Uganda) at October 26, 2017 11:41 am)
(IBRA at October 26, 2017 11:54 am)
parents’ neglect of taking their responsibility of raising up children has caused many children to come on the streets thus increased numbers of street children which doesn’t poetry a good picture.
(Brenda(Uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:40 pm)
Hi Hannah, your wright, but we have a problem of some young girls and boy who are belowe age but try to practice the sexual act that may lead them to unwanted pregnances and yet they are not ready to take care of the babies.
(EMMA(uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:53 pm)
Hi Destiny, i dont buy the idea of producing children and leave them for the community which has less time and concentration on once child since some members of the community seem not to care much on children
(EMMA(uganda) at October 26, 2017 1:06 pm)
Having a number of children you can take care of and be able to raise them is best.

Parents aren’t fully responsible. The state plays a key role too, such as by providing support economically and through education.

A child lives and learns from a parent and all is learnt from the parent so it is the responsibility of the parent to up bring a child
(John (uganda) at October 13, 2017 5:14 am)
Of course it is the parents to be responsible since they are the ones who produced the kid
(Dennis Kenya at October 26, 2017 8:37 am)
Yes the parents should take up the responsibility especially bringing up children morally because it doesn’t make sense for a child to be educated yet morally is not brought up well.
(Alex(Uganda) at October 26, 2017 11:59 am)
parents should get some money from the government, the government should invest in the future. By giving parents some financial security the parents can focus on parenting the kids and not on making money, this will benefit the family and the children in the long run.

No, teachers have some responsibility. However, parents can expect too much of teachers, and sometimes prevent them from doing their job properly.

They have always said charity begins at home and this is built by the parents so i believe this is meant to be done the parents such that by the time a child gets to school or to the teacher he is some how on the know of some things. Solomon i like this debate i am always following
(Chris(South Africa) at October 13, 2017 5:18 am)
The child spends the most time with the parents over any other person, even friends or teachers, especially while younger. The parents must retain their responsibility
(Will S at October 26, 2017 11:59 am)
I agree with you for the hours that they spend at school. But for the other hours the parents are responsible.
(Edward at October 26, 2017 12:07 pm)
Nida l dont agree with you for teachers taking up the responsibility of up bringing up children because this means teachers will be turned up into care takers
(Alex(Uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:22 pm)
Yes, the biggest responsibility on children’s up bringing is meant for the children and that’s their role as parents since they even state that charity begins at home so parents are the cvhild’s foundation.
(EMMA(uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:37 pm)
teachers can only help in the basics of bringing up the children but we should not forget charity begins at home. If the parents can not take care of the responsibility of raising up their children then teachers can not do much.

I believe that it takes a village to bring up a child. This includes teachers, local leaders, government officials, neighbours etc. People exist in communities and parents are not the only influence on that child
(Timothy Kenya at October 8, 2017 12:06 pm)
It is parents’ responsibility is to bring up their children properly, ensuring that they receive the right education which should include education and shelter

Other family members yes they can take care of the children but agrain the grandparents are weak and grown up so discipling children might not be efficient.

I agree with you, but parents are responsible for teaching their kids these morals.
(Edward at October 26, 2017 11:57 am)
no, children are not responsible for their own actions because they are not the ones to decide for themselves
(Julio(uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:01 pm)
children learn from what they see for example if a child is ever quite then it means he or she doesn’t get the attention and the care he or she is supposed to get form the parents.
(Brenda(Uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:26 pm)
Yes as they still grow in different levels they still get guidance from their parents and this is still a responsibility for a parent to see that their child is following a right direction

NO, parents should not be responsible for bringing up their parents, i think its the Government that is responsible. I think the parents should play their role of giving birth to many children and the Government will look after the children, what do you think?
(Anonymous at October 26, 2017 11:11 am)
It’s the parent’s responsibilities to bring up their children, there must be a reason why they decided to give birth to children, therefore they should take the responsibility of bringing them up. Failure to bring them up will lead to high school dropouts, children running to the streets because they dont have the basic needs, they will find the street as the best place to get the basic needs.
(Alfred at October 26, 2017 11:17 am)
yes because its the parent’s responsibility to take care of their children in all circumstances. for example if the child is indisciplined, then chances are that the community will biame the parent for poor parenting
(John(uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:03 pm)
NO even if he/she is not because ot addiction or being bused in any way but i think any child.
(Julio(uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:15 pm)

(Ibra(Uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:15 pm)
Attachment and love begins with parents so parents should be responsible than giving them to the government who may not care fort hem with that great love
(Asio(Sudan) at October 26, 2017 12:18 pm)
the word parent means bringing up your children well. me I believe that the parents shoud be primarily responsible for bringing up their children and then other people or institutions come in if there is need.
(John(uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:23 pm)
If people are addicted or abusive they shouldn’t have children in the first place. There should be a government run program that prevents people who are addicted from getting children, it should help decrees the number of addicted people and the society will think before beginning a family.

it would be good if every parent cares for their children because the love and responsibilities that a parent shows to the children lead to the child’s foture for example a child whose parent was influencial and important in his/her life, the child’s future seem to be good as he/she tasted the fruits of love and care. this means that the child will also care and be responsible for their future children.
(steve(uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:33 pm)
Steve I agree but where that is not possible because of addiction or death or some other reason then I believe others can and shoud step in to show love to that child and to act as a surrogate parent and that in doing so they can break the cycle so that hild cn go onto be a responsible parent.
(Lis (in Uganda) at October 26, 2017 12:39 pm)
