Re parents, I don't know what you mean.

Parents aren't held "legally" responsible for the illegal actions of their children (thefts, destruction of property, injury to others...). And homelife isn't the only influence on a child, whose time is split between home and school M-F. However, parents have the responsibility of raising their children. Some 3-10 million "latchkey' children (good luck trying to get a figure) come home to empty homes and spend hours and hours watching videos and playing computer games - as can be the case where a parent is at home, too! Literally, we have a nation of children entertaining themselves to death. You don't expect children to "self monitor" their media; that's a parent's responsibility.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
