If the children are taken care of, Do you care or judge the parents on how they make their income?

Say if a parent or someone you knew was a drug dealer (like in colorado "sold or gifted" marijuana, not a hardcore drug), or whatever the non typical way to make income for your family is. Would you judge them? Also take in consideration if the parents did not allow their children to where the money was coming from, and it didnt affect the children. 

Would you think differently of them?

Yup I would think they were idiots for jeopardizing their children's welfare.

Nope. I have thought about becoming a criminal. But I have a terrible poker face.

Yes, I would judge. If you have children, keep it legal and keep it safe.

Yes. Involving themselves in illegal activity which could land them in jail or hurt by dealing to the "wrong guy" is stupid. To do that with children in your life is irresponsible IMO.

It depends. My dad is a pool player/poker player. He is also a bookie. That is how he supported our family when I was growing up.

I would only care if their choice of gainful income would bring neglect or endangerment to the child.

Yes. Even if something is legal, that doesn't necessarily mean it is moral or good.
