My opinion is that it depends on each child individually. Whether such children commit
crimes in the future depends on their deviant parents. Children do not know right from wrong
when they are growing up, which may set a bad example for them if their parents commit crimes.
On the other hand, there are some children who know that what their parents do isn't the right
thing. As they grow older, they might end up splitting off from their parents and no longer
having a relationship with them. However, other children begin to follow their parents' lead and
start committing the same or even more serious crimes. Therefore, it is difficult to say if this is
truly hereditary because all children are capable of experiencing change as they grow older.
Criminal behavior can be passed from generation to generation in some situations, although in
others it may not. In my opinion, it all depends on how much resources the children have
available to them. Close relatives or teachers who look out for them can help them understand
that crimes are bad, and just because their parents commit them, doesn't make it okay for them to
do the same. There should be consequences for children with deviant parents who commit
crimes. It is equally important that the parents are held responsible for the kid's crimes. Did the
parents set a good example? Was their child taught what is right and wrong? Even if they weren't
around, were they ever around to supervise their child. When parents don't seem to be involved
with their children's daily lives, they should be held accountable. Therefore, as stated in the
article, all those children who committed crimes had parents who committed crimes themselves.
In other words, it was unlikely that they taught their children right from wrong by keeping the
crime present in their lives.
