now what has unfolded is the time to sit down with your son, and tell him. chances are your not getting your stuff back.

unless your son wants to go to small claims court with you, this is a good way to learn about the court system and watch the bad guys burn...

sure your probably only going to win 300 dollars, and the court fee it self is like 150. but its a good father son learning experience. and will teach your son some nice life lessons to be more careful with his stuff.

last thing you want doing is having your son bring a crowbar to school and killing this kid, and your son ends up in prison.

so i can imagine some idiots on here will say "HAVE YOUR SON BEAT THE OTHER KID UP OLD SCHOOL STYLE"

so far your not doing too bad as a parent

I have a sticky-accelerator toyota camry in the driveway, why dont you tell me where this kid lives and i'll run his ass down?

I'll just blame it on the recall.

edit: Just so people dont get confused, our car is supposedly affected by the recall, however we have yet to have any problems.

That is not a friend.. and not someone that you want your kid to hang out with. Before you know it, the kid will be breaking into cars and having your kid doing the watching to make sure that the coast is clear..

I'd follow the kid home from school one day.. find a dark alley and kneecap him.. but then again, I don't have much to lose and those are the life rules that my Dad taught me.

Ha, that's not going to happen.

Update: Things got serious real fast, the police officer spoke to the offender and parents - parents will be making amends by paying us the value of stolen gear. And the officer will be dealing with the offender separately.

Both sides get to learn from this...

i say plus one for keeping things mostly civil and backing out before it blew up.
i agree with having your kid confront him upfront but that could have also made the situation worse.
either way youll never no, point is he got his shit back.
your son learned a valuable lesson about friends and how to handle conflict, you gave them several chances before escalating it, and before it got messy you took the responsible steps

"if you give someone $20 and you never see that person again; it was probably worth that $20"

Honestly, I have the same problem with this one kid that my 5 year old son brings over.

My son has a very expensive lego collection, which come with these little figures - which are only available if you purchase the box sets. (Little darth vaders, buzz lightyear, indiana jones, and other mumbo jumbo.. ) I have no idea really... my wife buys this shit.

Anyway, while i am in the home office, and they are playing in the house - All i hear is them whispering together, and my son telling him "NO! You can't have it!", then when he leaves.. all hell breaks loose - and my son is crying, claiming he has his toys, and that little ****er denies it. And tells my son that he found it on the street, or it magically appeared in his closet and its HIS.

Its happened on pretty much every occasion he comes over, non-stop toy stealing... I'v spied on the little shit, and personally watched him look around suspiciously, sneak it in his pockets, and run out the goddamn house! ..

I don't really want to confront his father about it, it is kind of an embarrassing issue that I don't even want to bother mentioning..

I told him he isn't allowed over anymore,

end of story.

For your son's sake, you might have gone over there instead of your wife, cause now it looks like he got his mommy to fight his battle. This might sound stupid to adults, but 16-year-olds live by different rules, especially at school. Calling your mommy or the cops isn't cool. Getting your old man to straighten shit out is cool, or at least less worthy of ridicule by your peers. I think, had you gone over there in the first place, you might have been able to intimidate the kid into returning the stuff and avoided all the police bullshit and any grief at school your kid might take over it all. Mind you, you said your wife is assertive, so momma-bear probably stomped over there before you had a chance to say anything lol.
