What are your thoughts on this? I understand why people would be upset with his father, his father committed a terrible crime and should be held responsible. HOWEVER, as a parent, I feel that you should NEVER punish a child for his/her parents crimes and mistakes. He had nothing to do with what his father had done. If you want to hold him accountable to something, hold him accountable to the things HE does and says. Not the things other people do and say.
