Conviction: n. declaring a human(s) to be guilty of a criminal offense by jury verdict and/or the decision of a judge in a court of law
In the US and in most civilized democratic countries a jury can convict you or a judge can under the proper procedural conditions.
Private individuals can make personal judgments about circumstances and/or behavior of offspring and can commit to an action(s) which is erroneously considered a personal private conviction. It is really not one done from a position of formal legal authority. Convicting your offspring is a phrase seldom used in real life and is inappropriate to use. Evidence beyond a reasonable doubt and punishment for offspring is called discipline and not conviction.
A human of conviction is really a judgmental human and the phrase should not be used any more by smart humans.
