teenager stole from my house



My son's friend was over at our house and stole some electronic games and accessories.

My son was really upset - my wife (UN diplomat style) goes over to the house and plans to confront the parents: The "kid" was home and answers - My wife is very assertive... the "kid" says he doesn't have anything; My wife doesn't back down... then the "kid" produces stolen Nintendo DS.

Next my wife says - "where is the PSP?". He doesn't produce and claims ignorance. The prick didn't just casually grab it - he took to time to unplug the power supply, grab some games, memory stick, etc.

Wife calls the parents later - they don't believe their son did this (at this time they don't know about the Nintendo DS was already retrieved and there is more expected to be returned). "We just want the stuff back" is the mantra - nothing more or less, deadline of Thursday given. Tonight the parent drops off a PSP in a brown box (used, scratched, no memory card, no strap, unmodded). WTF

Wife steps it up and calls parents again - parents start preaching, kid starts talking back to my wife. At that point I don't sit in the sidelines anymore - I told the parent "you fail to understand your kid is a thief and ask him to produce what was stolen or I am calling the cops". Then the psycho babble preaching started so I called the cops anyway.

I don't know what we have in this box is another stolen PSP...

WTF the negotiating and giving a "way out" was only partially successful. Is this normal for disrespectful teenagers to steal from their friends, and have parents who won't step up and correct the situation?

I remember I caught a person stealing from my store and I banned him.. and he came back 3 weeks later cuz the manager had unbanned him cuz hes a big coward..

anyway he came in an di was working and I was like "hey theif"... he goes why you call me that?

"cuz youre a theif"

why does my stealing bother you?

"because I work here, and you stealing negatively affects me wages, hours, etc. And because youre a theif, try getting a job"

why does it bother you that I steal, youve never stolen before??

"no I dont steal, because Im not a theif"

I dont know why it bothers you so much.

"cuz youre a theif bro, try getting a job and you wont need to steal"

he starts getting mad at this point and raising his voice
if you dont like theifs so much maybe you should hang your self

Im staying perfectly calm.
If you got yourself off your lazy ass and got a job you wouldn't need to be a dirtbag.

then hes like
you and me aren't finished.

"okay poncho, Im standing right here, I aint scared of a crappy theif like you that gets caught."

he takes off.

comes in a few days later, and STEALS again.. this time the manager bans him..



PS I spelled thief wrong. but im hungover and its early so **** you.

Some parents let their kids get away from things like this and the kid starts to think that they can get away with anything.
By policy I ALWAYS make sure that a kid gets the full consequences for his/her actions. You should have called the cops on day 1.

Age = 16.
Now our family is second guessing anyone coming over to our house from this point on.

Temptation to steal outweighs friendship...

I bet your son will be more aware next time another friend comes over to play
electronic games.

lol let the cops deal wit it, eventually the kids and their family will regret backing up their son, the lawyer fees, risk of chages laid, trouble going through wit the police. not worth it imo.

^^yeah but you didn't hide it, you just told them you were taking them, then did a bunch of juijitsu moves, and they backed off.

You did the right thing by giving them the chance to make it right, and by calling the cops now.
Good luck.

I see both families at fault here...

your son is the same age as this thief is he not?? its not like your son is 12 years old and this 16 year old comes over and steals these things.

so lesson 1 for your son dont hang around with this kid anymore. Do you want your son and this boys friendship repaired so your son gets involved with this other idiot kid so they can go steal from a store and get into REAL trouble??

your wife did a mistake here by over reacting and going over to the house... because that gets the other parents involved.. hell breaks loose.

you should have told your son to go over to there house and tell this theif to give his stuff back... theif most likley will say no.
tell your son to then call his parents and tell them what happened. if those parents have any sort of moral value theyll comply with your son.

if those parents are idiots, now is your time to go to them and tell them listen were really not f*cking around here. chances are they will comply with what is missing as your son is there ensuring everything that is missing has been returned.

police small claims court. and have your son with you..

your son will then learn a valuable life lesson.. if this sounds like too much proper parenting then you have failed as a parent.
