A parent will do this to help the child understand what they did was wrong and not to do it again. stealing), that person will think of the consequences that go along with that crime. If the parent is bad, probably the child will turn out to be just like their parents but you never known. 58)Parents will have an everlasting effect on their children no matter what. At this point in a child"tms life, there are many choices that one must make. Parents teach their kids that stealing is bad or hurting another person is wrong.
