How serious a crime would your child have too commit before you reported him/her to the police ?
you are like a RW version of Five Live.
wearing an mp3 player in a race.
Walking on the Grass. Or littering. That would be my main two.
"Inform upon your children, the inevitable end is that eveyone's a victim but the filthy f***king rich"
writing silly nonsense on rw about running with mp3 players.
I don't have any children but my OH is a copper - I don't think I've got much to worry about crime wise...

Have you tried counselling Demon Barber? Did your wife buggering off leave you mentally scarred?
Nice. Really nice. What a wonderful person you are.
seriously though, i'd be more inclined to tazar my kids a few times before i'd hand them over to the Old Bill.
There shouldn't be a paradox - as unpalatable as it is, if you know one of your children has committed a serious crime and you don't report it then you are tacitly consenting to them going out and doing whatever they did to someone else.
You are also risking jail yourself and becoming a social pariah by covering up for them.
If you're ok with that - then that's ok. Personally I wouldn't be.
I'd try to fix it myself, as a parent I could never imagine turning my children in
Depends. They'd probably have to cause serious physical harm to someone that didn't deserve it to any extent and for it to be premeditated.

Real philosophical point where is your duty, to your own Child or the wider community, don't know the answer just know my own.
