Are Lindsay's Parents to Blame For Her Behavior?

Are Lindsay's Parents to Blame For Her Behavior?

Lindsay Lohan looked beat after her big night out on Saturday. Even though she stayed out of trouble, this photo is reminding us a little too much of those passed out shots of her right after her first DUI last year. Now we're hearing that Lindsay is having trouble staying sober because she can't deal with her parents, what with Michael reopening the divorce case and Dina putting Ali on their reality show. Lindsay's parents have always been a handful, but we're not sure they are the sole reason for her partying. What do you think — are her parents to blame for her behavior?

UGH I hate to see her like this.

She's going to wind up back in rehab, jail or dead at this rate. Sad.

Her parents set a bad example, and built the foundation for her problems, but she's almost 22 and has been to rehab 3 times. It's time for her to take responsibility for her actions.

It's a yes and no..they set bad examples for her to live on, and stress from the family definitely leads to something like drinking to forget about it! BUT, she is old enough to know that that can't solve all of her problems, and she can surround herself with better people to help her do the right things.

Of course her parents are being guilty because they should stop fighting or lindsay won't get better and will loose her capacity of being sober, it's an addiction that is very hard and her parents should give her more support, i'm not saying they don't care but sometimes they really look like they don't have a daughter of 21 years old, and also she has age but she's not an old woman to control herself like adults...she needs support!!!

as someone who is actually in recovery i stopped blaming my parents when i finally decided to accept responsibility for my disease and get help, 11+ years sober and living a happy kick ass life. At some point it can no longer be about blame folks (even if they are fucktards) if you actually want to get better. IMHO.SIDE NOTE---all of them are addicts. it is hereditary.fucktard mom= cocaine/alcohol/pillsfucktard dad= cocaine/alcohol/pillslindsay= started with alcohol, cocaine, other pharmex, than the unlucky girl discovered hillbilly heroin (OXY) and here she is. by the looks of her even in rehab they either had her on methadone or let her stay on the pills for the pain.

I just wonder if her drinking problem is making her sleep with women, or if her desire to sleep with women is why she has a drinking problem. Either way, she seriously needs to have a chat with Leif Garrett and arrest this drama and get back to work before it's too late.

anyone who has had a drug or alcohol problem, and recovered from it will tell you that the first step to recovery is taking responsibilty for your own actions, and to stop blaming your problems on everyone else.

I'm not sure what to think about how parents affect a person and their lifestyle choices. Some people who have the worst parents ever turn out just great, and people have great parents turn out to be like Lindsay Lohan. So you never know.

Psychologically, she'll always have problems because of her parents, so there will always be blame on them for her misbehavior. Although, I think that Samantha girl is bad news in terms of influence on Lindsay.

While issues stemming from her parents can be hurtful, she has to grow up and take responsiblity for her actions & issues.

I think it's a little of both. Her parents have been a problem for many years, which did not help in her formative years. But, she has been in rehab and one of the things they teach you is to take responsibility for your own actions. She obviously cannot change the way her parents act, but she can change the way she deals with them and make sure that she takes a better path than them. She also needs to choose better in the friend department. Another lesson in rehab - stay away from old friends who can lead you back to old habits. I really do wish her the best. She is a really good actress and does deserve another chance. People need to stop being so negative towards her.

She's almost 22. She can make her own decisions.

She had a horrid foundation growing up, but now she is in charge of her actions; however, I would argue that she will be having a tough time due to the environment she grew up in. Not saying she's innocent by any means, just that she didn't have a fair, honest start.

Nobody's human waste! I don't care how many chances this girl has had, you don't write someone off. She, however, has written her self off, I think, and that is the problem. Whatever she's done or whatever happened to her to steer her onto this course can be reversed, recovered, and redeemed. She need help and she needs to want help, but I don't see any such love around her.

I mean I think it's a combination. I agree completely with lickety-split. So many people do become addicts even though they have a great family life, but I think that the fact that she has a crazy family life doesn't help. I'm also going to go out on a limb to say this photo doesn't show us everything. It's possible she was really exhausted after a night of partying also. Not like that is a good thing either, but one photo from one night doesn't tell us everything about her. She has to take it day by day and it's not really our place to judge a slip-up since we're not really involved with her recovery...

the issues she has are because of her parents, but she's an adult now and has to take responsibility for getting healthy. 99% of those who become addicts as teens keep using throughout their lives. add to that her being a public personality and enough money to fund her habit and i'd say her chance of recovery is almost non-existant.

Her mom and dad certainly are not, and never have been, doing right by their children. They are self-absorbed, emotionally stunted individuals and by now Lindsay knows this about both of them. But at this stage of the game Lindsay is in charge of herself. I think she is struggling without a strong support system, and chances of her fully recovering were nill. She really needed a large support net, and she just does not have one. She isn't ready to rely solely on herself, plus she is having a hard time figuring out who that is in the first place. Her sexuality issues (seeming promiscuity with men, but a clear attraction to at least one woman) confirm that. Bottom line is she's on her own in two demanding and crazy cities (LA and NYC), and her chances don't look great. I actually feel for her.
