Knowledge is power.
Such boys either reformed themselves and become a responsible person or if they don't mend their ways, eventually, become criminals.
I think any person who does he respect or who does he fear or who does he have friendship with can be helpful to make him realize his responsibilities about his family.
Good behaviour is a beautiful quality which, reciprocally, causes respect from others. It wins hearts. We should keep our tongue in control because all our behaviour depends on how we talk to people. Harsh words pierce into the hearts of people and soft words please others. Even enemies may have a soft corner for their enemies because of good behaviour.
In some families, sons may be more responsible and in some families, daughters may be responsible. This varies from family to family. I have seen a family where they have a son and a daughter. The son is taking care of his old parents. Daughter is married and stays with her husband. Every time she comes to her parents and demands something or other. The old parents request the son and he obliges and tries to satisfy the parents as well as the sister.
When our behaviour is good and when we respect others, others will also respect us. Even we are in a commanding position if we behave badly with our subordinates, they may keep silent but they may be cursing us inside. So we should be good with people.
