Unfortunately for parents they have to take the brunt sometimes for their kids because they have the responsibility to train them to become good citizens not only to themselves but the society at large.

A 17-year-old boy smashed a car killing his friend who had allowed him drive. His parents are facing prosecution for failing to teach him the difference between right and wrong. He was banned from driving for two years with final twelve months suspended and fined 1,200 euros and also received a 12 month suspended sentence.

Jordy Kinoo from Kruiseke, eastern Belgium managed to scramble free of the car after he crashed through a concrete pole and rolled the Citroen onto its roof.

Niels Forrest, 24, had given his friend the keys of the car - despite knowing the teenager did not have a driving licence.This was a usual occurence for him to give his car keys to the teenager.Unfortunately it ended in tragedy in May, 2015.

Eyewitnesses said the car was speeding along the road which had been closed to traffic when the youngster lost control of the Citroen C2. 

In court at Ypres, the lawyer for the parents Kinoo claimed that the car's owner was responsible for the crash as he handed over the ignition keys knowing their son had not passed a driving test.

But the judge ruled that the parents of the driver were also partly responsible for the accident because they had failed in their duty as citizens to teach their son to respect the law dailymail gathered.

They will now have to appear in court on February 20.
