How serious a crime would your child have too commit before you reported him/her to the police ?

Patricide.

wearing an mp3 player in a race.

Walking on the Grass. Or littering. That would be my main two.

First thing I though of was patricide. Skotty beat me to it

Have you tried counselling Demon Barber? Did your wife buggering off leave you mentally scarred?

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...

When I was 7 I stole some money from my Mum. She carted me off to littlehampton police station and with complete cooperation from a PC Gilkes, I was locked in a cell for an entire afternoon, read my rights and so on. Bloody worked.

But that's not answering your question.

I have two children and I'm not sure I could answer this question honestly. I hope I'm never put in that situation.

On the one hand, if it wouldn't warrant a custodial sentence then maybe I would report it. In saying that I'm admitting that I wouldn't shop my children for a serious crime. I think that's a paradox.

Tough question.

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.

Like I said, not sure I could answer it honestly. I'd be very surprised if, children or not, anyone else could answer that question definitively until it actually happens. I'm happy to be proved wrong of course.

And we're assuming here that the law is not an ass?
25/03/2013 at 21:28

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.
