If you are talking about legal responsibility where a parent can be fined or jailed if their child behaves badly, I think that this is a very bad idea.
The main reason for this is that there is not a direct correlation between how well a parent parents their child and how the child behaves. Children who have great families and great parents can still end up doing stupid things that will get them in a great deal of trouble. It is unreasonable to act as if parents have complete control over what their children do, particularly once their children are teens.
