    He blames his failure on his parents.

    He blames his failure to his parents.

    Which is correct, and why?

    Thank you

    Re: on/to

    The second sentence is ungrammatical. To blame means, to hold responisble for; blame is laid upon someone or something:

    EX: He blames his failure on his parents.
    EX: He holds his parents responsible for his failure.
    EX: He blames his parents for his failure.

    Hope that helps.
