Get them started when they're 4 years old. If it's too late for that, money. Don't give them any if they don't help. Give them some if they do.
no Of course not.
I think 11 'o clock is a good time. I honestly can't see any reason why a 16-year-old should have a curfew, especially during the weekend. Kids should be tought morals at an early age so that they can be trusted when they get older, rather than letting them turn into a rebel and then trying to stop the inevitable. But that's just me. -DJ Craig
Tell them to grow up. 14 is way to old to be jealous of a new baby. This person is going to be looked up to when the baby is growing up and acting childish is not a good model.
Possible Legal ConsequencesYes. Any adult who knowingly participates in aiding and abeting an underaged person in leaving parental custody can be held guilty of several felony and misdemeanor violations and can likewise be subject to civil litigation.
If the adult takes such action to insure the safety of a minor child/children it is their legal responsibility to contact the proper authorities immediately or as soon as possible upon taking the action.
