The cases where the parents are, made to take responsibilities, over their children’s, behaviors, ruled by the court! Off of the Newspapers, translated…
The adage, “Parental debts are paid by the offspring”, but based off of the laws right now, the parents’ debts, don’t necessarily fall under the offspring’s responsibilities, but as the underage children were out, and done something bad, the parents may be made to pay collaterally, two young children in a preschool fought over a watch and started arguing, and one child scratched the other, injuring her/him the judge mandated the parents of the child who’d scratched to pay the injured child over $16,000N.T.s, the high school student, Chen, was running on the roads, and, bumped into a woman who was riding on an electric motorcycle, and he and his father were made to pay the woman $250,000N.T.s, the legal realm stated, the underage whether it be intentional or negligent, had hurt another, the legal guardians may have to pay for it by collateral, the parents must be really careful over this.
Based off of civil law, the children’s age limit was seven, before seven, the child have no control in restricting one’s own behaviors, those children older than seven have, and if children in these two age groups had impacted someone’s rights, and if the behaviors were determined as “under the awareness”, then the child will be paying for the wrongdoing legally with the parents, if not, it would be the legal guardians who must pay. But if the legal guardians can produce proofs that they’d not been loose on their rules of raising their young, or that there were already, reasonable rules established, then, the legal guardians don’t have to pay for their children’s behaviors.
Two young boys, Hwa and Ming (both false names) are students of a famous kindergarten in Taipei, two years ago, on an afternoon, Ming handed his new watch to other students to look at, and after the students looked at the new watch, they’d, handed it over to Hwa to see, as Ming tried to get the watch back from Hwa, Hwa refused, they started arguing, Ming scratched Hwa’s face twice, injuring him.
Later on, Hwa’s parents sued Ming’s parents in civil court, asking to pay for the damages to their young son in amount of over $1.4 million N.T.s, while Ming’s parents mentioned, how the preschool they’d selected for their son was a famous chain kindergarten in Taipei, that they’d, already, given the best forms of education to their own young; while the judge believed, that the parents hadn’t, because the child couldn’t know what he did was right or wrong, the parents of the child have to pay for the damages, in the end the courts found Ming’s parents to pay over $16,000N.T. to the other parents.
The fifteen-year-old high school student Chen two years ago, was running across the intersections, and rammed the woman on an electric bicycle, Yeh over, injuring her, Yeh sued the high school student and his parents for the damages; the courts reviewed the street surveillance, found that Chen wasn’t following the lights, because Chen was not yet twenty, he was categorized as “couldn’t restrict his own behaviors”, his father also couldn’t produce the proofs of his watching over his son’s behaviors, that he was collaterally, responsible, the courts found that Chen and his father must pay Yeh a total of over $250,000N.T.s.
And so, this still showed, how under a certain age, when a kid misbehaved, the parents are responsible, unless you the parents, can prove, that you had, given the rules to your children to follow, and this would be, interpreted by the courts, which means, that the judge can see it, either way, and, there’s, no way of you, the parents knowing, if you’ll get sued, so, the best way to prevent this, is by, teaching your young the right rules and, keep your fingers crossed, that they don’t, get into, too much troubles…
