Are There No Bad Children, Only Bad Parents?

This is an excellent New York Times article, arguing against the prevailing assumption among parents that, if our children go wrong, we must have raised them wrong.

Besides parental influences on children, there are outside influences (friends and media), genetic tendencies, and personal decisions. While some parents should obviously shoulder the blame for an errant child, in whole or in part, it's not always the parent's fault.
