Boy Arrested For Opening Present

07-Dec-06

 

A 12-year-old boy has been arrested for opening one of his Christmas presents early....

 

The boy, from Rock Hill, South Carolina, was taken to the local police station after unwrapping a Nintendo Game Boy Advance. They charged him with petty theft and he now faces a court appearance reports the Sun.

 

The console had been wrapped by the boy’s gran and put under the Christmas tree with strict instructions not to touch it before December 25.

 

But the next day she found the gift had been opened and told her grandson’s mother - who called the police. The mum said her son had a history of bad behaviour. She added: "I'm trying to get him some kind of help."

Not allowed here. The reason kids in the US are so out of control is because nearly any sort of spanking is considered child abuse now. Seems once that law went into effect a generation went to hell in a handbasket.

I'd be the first to say something if I thought someone was abusing a child, but I can honestly say there is nothing wrong with a swat on the bottom from time to time. It is sad to live in a world where a person can't discipline a child, yet is called a bad parent when the child is out of control. Seems like a no win situation to me.

Agree Moo!

 

Recently in a store a kid was screaming for some candy and the mother was refusing, then the mother gave in and bought the candy.

An old lady said,"Somebody should have slapped that kid!"

I said,"The mother gave in, somebody should have slapped her!" <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

Exactly! Reinforcing the knowledge that if they fuss long and loud enough they will get what they want is the worst thing you can do for a kid. Not only does it create a spoiled monster, it teaches the kid that they can have anything they want in life. That could cause all sorts of lifelong problems we don't think about at the time. If a kid is used to getting anything he or she wants, once on his or her own, it will cause credit problems. What better way to get what you want when you want than with a credit card? Something so simple as giving in all the time has more repercussions than most people stop to think about. After a few times of riding out the storm, it will become easier. I suppose the best thing to do it start from the beginning teaching them they can't have everything they want.

I still agree, but you know............Now they can take you to Court and either Divorce you, or sue you!

It's a mixed up crazy world!
All the time the majority of balanced people allow the Political Correct MORONS to dictate to us...................The worse it will get!

Very mixed up world. I can only see it getting worse. I suppose it is because the politically correct morons speak louder than the balanced people.
