saying they had your 12 and 11 year old boys at the police station and a parent needed to pick them up, how would you react?


So tonight my friend calls me and tells me that earler today her sons and three of their friends were taken in to the police station and all needed a parent to come getting them. Apparently they were out riding their bikes in the neighborhood and they decided to do ding, dong, ditch to an elderly gentleman on the street. They have been doing this poor guys house for quite a few months now. So the gentleman called the cops, the cops drove around and found the five boys. Since they had not only did it at the front door, but actually went into his backyard and did the back door to, they were brought in for trespassing. When my friend told me about it, she was laughing, I still fail to see the humor in the situation! She said it was funny and just a kid thing to do. She thought it was funny that not only they got caught, but gave the police their real names! Her reasoning- "it's a kid thing, we all did it, we just weren't dumb enough to get caught"!

She is my best friend, we have known each other for over 25 years, but our parenting perspectives are so far apart it is ridiculous! I would have been horrified if that were my kids and I would have kicked their asses so badly, they would have begged the cops to let them live in jail!!!

I'd be disappointed in my kids. I'd be upset-im not going to lie. And they'd be in trouble with me and their father after they get home

I never did it
And would never laugh if my kids did either
What happened to respecting people and their property?

My children (now 21 and 17) know better..and knew better when they were little kids.  I would have been blistering some asses if I had to come get my kids at the police dept for ANY reason..and they knew it.
