Shot up a store because you said no to a candy bar?
Committed a crime because you let him or her play Angry Birds on your phone at the store?
Just curious, since there's another question insisting that's a cause and effect situation...

No. My kids are young though. They are still pretty empathetic toward others. I would imagine that if they started to act this way as they matured that it would be a sign of mental illness, at which time I would get them the help they need as long as I had the power to do so. It's more problematic when they are of legal age and cannot be forced to get medical or emotional support for their problems.
I saw a comment about not seeing the flaws in our own children. I see the flaws in mine and I work with them in as supportive way as possible to correct what we can.
