It's a shame she didn't make him apologize and/or apologize for her kids behavior. I know my brother or I had done something like that when we were little my parents would've apologized themselves and made us apologize and when we got home we would've had an ass whoopin' waiting for us.

I do like how she let you speak with the kid though. I've been saying for a while that one major problem that young parents/parents of the modern generation or however you wanna say it, is that they refuse to let others have any part at all in raising the kids. They have this "Their my kids, who the hell do you think you are to tell me how to parent" kind of mentality, which is unfortunate since the older generation, such as grandparents and what not, have tricks or techniques that can help raise the kid better. I know with my brother and I our entire family on both my parent's sides of the family had a hand in raising us, and they all could punish each other's kids and none of the other parents would care so long as they didn't go overboard.



You just reminded me of when I was still living with my parents. My oldest brother dropped off his kids for me to baby sit. I was a junior or senior in high school back then. I took the kids to the corner store. When we came back, one of my brother's kids was holding on to something I knew I didn't buy. My Mom and Dad overheard me scolding my nephew and made us take it back to the store and pay for it. We went back and apologized and paid for it - and the attendant who is also the owner gave all of us a lolly pop.

KFM was just kidding with my earlier post. You did what you could while remaining civil, and that says a lot.

I suspected that...but I couldn't be sure - so I gave you a response with a straight face. A professor of mine taught me how to do that......A student would ask a smart ass/funny question and expect the professor to break character and stray away from the lecture. Instead, the professor gives a serious answer and makes the student feel uncomfortable. I'm not insinuating you were trying to be the smart ass student. I had a feeling you were simply being sarcastic.

I don't think you went far enough. You should have curb stomped the kid. Give em a big front kick to the chest and send him flying. Then you chastise him and talk about the shame of masturbation (personal massager? I got my eye on you both).

Finally, you look at the mom, take the box and the contents she is looking to purchase and tell her her money is no good here. Tell her to keep an eye on her kid and keep him in school or it's a life full of robbing garage sales ahead!



Yes!

Like others have said, the parents haven't done a good job raising their kid. Just a downward spiral that probably won't correct itself.

You probably did the right thing KFM. Maybe the kid will think twice about stealing. Unfortunately, there is no help for the mom.

Really, I don't think there is a good way to "fix" the issue, because it's layers and layers of things, and if the parent doesn't have an active role in his life, he's not going to learn anything that young. When you're a certain age, you take every single cue from your parents, regardless of what outside sources tell you, so you're just wasting words at best and forcing them to distrust you at worst.

These days police don't even want to get involved in these situations because it has a negative effect with long-term trust of law enforcement.

I think your best route of action would be to force the mom to see what road her kids are going down. Even if a parent is a dirtbag themselves, they often want better for their kids. Worse case scenario there is she doesn't buy anything at your yard sale. Best case is you actually make her take an active role in the kids future.

I think you live in a fantasy world and might have some sort of brain damage and/or really serious mental problems.

You would think that after a certain amount of time, a poster would learn to let bygones be bygones. I could say something very mean right now - about you and how you are still holding this grudge against me but I won't.

I think you just need a hug.

Say whatever you want, I don't care about your opinion at all, it won't bother me.

It has nothing to do with "bygones" or holding a grudge. I just fundamentally don't like you as a person, and I'm reminded of it every time I see you write something. You didn't make this thread so that you could hear other people's opinions about the situation, you made it so that you could gloat and advertise your moral superiority over a 9 year old. It's sad. The fact that you judge kids that age as "criminals" based on one interaction, and that you are always so eager to tell everyone else how they should behave, how they should live their lives, etc.

I just think you're a bit of a moral thug and scumbag.

And here I thought he was telling a story and then listening to responses and answering them. Its sort of how internet message boards work.

Also, calling someone on their perceived bullshit in a public forum makes you just as much of a moral thug.
