    Afraid for his son's life, father turns his kid in to police

    Great quote from the father:
    “If he would have stayed out here doing what he was doing, he was going to die. He’s not in California anymore. He’s in Texas and Texans do not play with people stealing.”

    Still, I would say that somewhere along the way, parenting failures occurred.

    I wonder if he would have snitched if they had stayed in California.

    Easy assumption to make and even easier to say.

    However, as the father of a young man who had some mental health issues, issues that lead to some acting out in ways that could have resulted in legal entanglements, I can tell you it isn't always a parent who's at fault.

    Our son was raised in a loving middle-class Christian home, taught right from wrong, taught that behavior and actions have consequences, with adequate loving discipline, and all the other things that we as parents try to teach our children.

    He still sneaked out and took our car joyriding in the middle of the night several times when he was just 15. He also had severe anger issues that got him into fights and into trouble - and even ended with him threatening to harm his little brother, his mother, and me. He also threatened suicide numerous times and even made a couple of attempts at it - fortunately he wasn't successful.

    We got him help - including six weeks commitment into a residential inpatient mental health facility and a couple of years worth of counseling.

    By the grace of God he's doing great now - but it certainly could have turned out very differently.

    Where do you think his mom & I failed as parents?

    Sounds to me like this dad did what he felt he needed to do, and it couldn't have been an easy choice to make. I applaud him for it. Hopefully his son will turn around - as mine did.

    It sounds like the son was out of control and I commend the father for very likely saving his son's life. Maybe the lad can get control of his life and turn it around.

    The large majority of "parents" would have ignored the situation completely. Now, when a parent does something that any good parent would do, it gets attention. Good for the father - something tells me mama is not to happy right now - probably the source of the problem.

    The father did the right thing in my opinion.

    At least the father did SOMETHING. This could have had an all too common outcome of burying his son. Now he'll probably do several years and maybe, just MAYBE the father won't have to bury his son.
