Should cell phone companies be responsible for this?

ok you have a kid, you buy him/her a cell phone as part of a phone deal with some phone company. Your kid goes reckless and makes a call to Sth America one day. He/she calls Japan another day, Germany afterwards, and China another day later.

Your kid goes reckless and makes a call to Sth America one day. He/she calls Japan another day, Germany afterwards, and China another day later. Your kid doesn't tell you about the calls and its quite a shock when you see the bill. However, you can't help but feel it's partly the phone company's fault. Had they alerted you of such a charge from the beginning you would have stopped your child from reckless raking up the bill. As much as they say it's your responsibility lets face it you can't stop your kids from everything. Credit card companies do this and save people thousands why not phone companies? This is really serious to me because had they such a policy I wouldn't be looking at a 1000 dollar cell phone bill and am seriously considering suing them to do this
Update: still if credit card companies do this so should cell phone companies. Cuz what if someone steals your phone without you realizing it makes expensive calls and puts it back without you knowing. How you gonna dispute that?
