Can you honestly said you would stand by your kids and support them no matter what?

I know its easy to say you would until you were actually put in the situation but put yourself in the situation and could you honestly stand behind your kid and support them no matter what they did?

Like with all these stories on the news,  teenagers killing their newborns, casey anthony, the mom who prostituted out her two young girls (both under 10 years old)

situations like that, could you still stand by them even if found guilty?


hopefully, none of us will ever be in a situation like that.

    This.

    Quoting acaisha:

    I honestly can say I would, because I have. When my son was charged with sexual assault I stood by him to get the help he needs. We don't have to love the things our children do, sometimes we will hate their actions to our very core. But they are our children and you can stand beside them without condoning or accepting their terrible behavioror.

    I will always love my daughter and any future kids I have but I don't know if I could support them in extreme cases (rape, murder, etc.).

    This explains it exactly! I would stand behind my child to get them the help they need. I wouldnt be supporting their bad behaviors.

    Yes I would.  I would also turn him into the police or things of that nature.  I would stand by them, support them, get them a lawyer, therapy, what ever... Supporting doesn't mean allow them to get away with murder.  Supporting them means always loving them, no matter what.

    I have adopted a child (now an adult) that we had to terminate the rights due to seriously harming our other adopted child, me, and the pets--It was very hard and did not insitently do this.  We tried and tried and tried and tried and tried and tried and got tons of help and nothing working-I still care about him but the other family members were in serious danger and he would refuse for years to get any help and all we did was support and support and support him-We can still care but I can not put the other children in severe danger-

    Hardest decision and heart breaking beyond words can even describe.
