The Parents' Role in School Shootings - When children commit a horrible act such as a school shooting their parents often look for someone or something to blame rather than looking at what role they, as parents, may have had in the tragedy.

The parents of dangerous children must be scrutinized and sued alongside every other entity being blamed for the heinous crimes that children commit....   [tags: Blame The Parents for Mass Shootings] 1204 words

In other words, LaFollette does not explicitly establish what comprises exactly the minimum amount of harm that makes the activity potentially harmful or very harmful.
