When a young person goes wayward, who is to blame?
Is it the young person in question? The parents?
The young person’s environment?
Or their peers?
This raises the whole issue of child-upbringing which some people say, because it is poorly done, is responsible for the negative direction the world is taking.
The argument is that if children are well brought up, they will not be authors of evil; and thus, will not be contributors to evil in the world.
When they are badly brought up, they become wayward, and contribute to the evil in the world. Thus, this poor child-upbringing which is everywhere, explains the growing evil in the world.
