Is bad parenting a valid argument for people who become criminals in their adult life? Science and research support that experiences and parenting shape what type of person someone becomes, but there is also research to show that people make their own choices. What is your opinion on this?

In my opinion, parenting is extremely important. For example, racism - is something that is passed down from parents. That does not mean that people with bad parenting cannot become good people, but more often than not, criminals, racists, etc. will have been influenced by their parents.
 
Parenting is a very important aspect in the human society. So if parents failed to discipline their kids there's a high probability that the kids can become criminals and secondly it's not all about good parenting that a child can be come a criminal. A good parent can discipline his/her child and it can still be a harden criminal due to bad influence of friends as well as in some cases it can be with a change of mind
 
Parents aren't all to blame because even if they're never disciplined as a child, we all make our own choices in life and suffer the consequences. Something people will only learn by doing and has anyone ever heard of the term "You've made your own bed, now lie in it"?

Discipline is important otherwise there is an increased chance that the child could become a criminal and end up in prison. No parent wants that for their kid so it's important "good parenting" is followed.

I think good parenting highly helps, but as you say, it's often not the whole story with things.
 
Children are too naïve and innocent.
They are easily influenced by their surroundings and we should guide them at each step. Of course there are a few people who veer off from the good path thanks to the so called friends.

So, it's better to observe children and we should try to prevent such stuff.
Given the right direction, most of the folks wouldn't turn out bad at the end. Of course, this is just my opinion.
 
I don't think it is right to blame your parents for every problem in your life. Well, bad parenting can make you a troubled personality, however, the environment and your free will also play roles. I think some people are born that way, to commit crimes, and there is nothing parents can do if the child is already a black sheep.
 
I have two children, one turned out really well but the other was difficult from the word go and ended up on drugs and ultimately in prison. I do not blame myself for his choices although I thought it was my fault once.. My children were brought up the same. He knew that drug taking could end badly and he had a stable upbringing. I tried everything I knew to put him on the straight and narrow even involving the police to try and talk to him but to no avail. He is now almost 40 and although he doesn't get in trouble any more he has some very strange views on life. I honestly wonder if there was anything I could have done differently. I had a very difficult pregnancy with him and he cried a lot as a baby. Could it have started in the womb?
