For those who say you could never shop your own child to the police - what if they killed another of your children?

Which one and how? Btw I am still annoyed about the single malt

I would shop them.....

if they got drunk and drove 

if they attacked someone 

if they hit and run i would shop them.......

they should be made to face up to it or they will havce to live with the consequences for life....

 I would still try and support them as much as I could but i would never let them get away with any major incident ever

 

 so for those who wouldn't shop their kids......it does tell them that they can do it again...

so if they were a paedophile then you would just cover up for them so more innocent children could be attacked..

That is exactly what I was saying seren nos and I agree entirely. Crime and the motivations behind it are complex. But some crimes are just wrong....

If they made off with a pile of money and did not cut me in for at least 10%

So seren, here's a scenario. One of your kids has a couple of drinks in the pub after work, he drives home, you ask how many pints he has had. He honestly says 2.

He needs his licence to hold down his job, no car no job. He is technically over the limit, but not falling about etc and doesn't seem visibly drunk.

You ring the police and turn him in. Really?

Don't get me wrong, it's well known how much I'm against drink driving but really...

Imagine if you were John venables or Robert thompson's parents and you saw your kids on CCTV? I'd have to take them down to the station myself.

For graffiti or being d&d they'd be more scared of me than the police.

Any one who hasn't got children really can't comment, theres something that switches in your brain when they're born, that changes you. Whilst using a wife/boyfriend/husband whatever to answer this question is the best a childless person can, it still doesn't compare. I'd wager most given the ultimate choice between saving their kid/kids or a partner would chose the first.

I agree with that, we are so hardwired to protect our kids. I didn't even consider it when I got pregnant, but when I gave birth to my first I knew that I would take a bullet for my kids without hesitation. It's a scary feeling, imagine if you were put in the position as a parent where your kid had done something serious? I honestly don't know how I would react, maybe we should ring Mr and Mrs Pistorious, they must be going through hell at the moment.
