How effective the execution of their rights on the outside world depends on how intact their family system is and how they both practice their rights. This is where we based who is to blame or accredit the behaviors of one against the other, together with one another, or with the entire society they belong.
Laws govern boundaries of behaviors in an organized society. In the case of most developed countries 18 years is the age where parents are put in custody of the child. During this stage it is assumed, in the absence of specific laws, that the parents have the right and obligations to take action, within the bounds of the law, to guide and discipline the child according to what the parents deemed necessary for the betterment of the child. Within the parental custody age of 0 to 18, if the parents fall short of expectations and remiss in the physiological, psychological, and social development needs of the child or juvenile, they share the burden and repercussions of the child's or juvenile's actions. Other person can sue the parents, or the children themselves can sue their parents if they found probable cause. Many countries today are focusing on basic social protection of the child's rights that resorted to even penalizing the erring parents and take custody of the juvenile.
