Way to go Mom and/or Dad!!! Call the COPS on your kid and get 'em a criminal record....for a plant. Good one. I'm sure that they'll grow up to thank you for your boundless wisdom and tough love for them.

mmjpatient22, I do not know the details of the family and I guess you do not either.

There are circumstances such as tough love situations where all have agreed to follow certain rules and the failure to do so will result in specified responses that make failing to call the police the wrong thing to do. Tough love is not about being mean, but about parents who have lost control that need a way for their kid to realize there are consequences for unacceptable behavior.

It is all about trust and whether or not it was the right thing to do depends on whether it builds or destroys trust within the family.

sorry scott, got to side with mmj on this one... see we were raised by a cop, we have been on the receiving end of parents showing "tough love" and frankly we feel like things could have been handled different is all. Tough love sometimes leads to stronger defiance, and a strong feeling of "you just don't care" from the kids. I only say this out of personal experience. I think parents need to think before they react is all. If you simply react, that's what your teaching your kids to do, and that's not always the best course of action. You get more bees with honey.

I am just saying I do not know enough of the situation to claim to know what is going on.

When growing up, a friend's cousin about 15 was bullying his mom and breaking every rule she tried to set and vandalizing stuff and so on. It was a complete breakdown of their relationship because she'd make up all sorts of rules that everyone knew she wouldn't enforce and he'd break those rules and criminal laws. So they ended up with a court mandated therapist and tough love where they agreed upon rules and consequences for him breaking those rules. And the consequences for breaking criminal laws was calling the police. It was a completely screwed up situation, but it did limit his criminal behavior. It did end up redirect his energy from hating his mom to getting his GED to be able to get a job and pay for his own place to live.

I am not saying this is what is happening in this case. I am just saying that before going off on the parent for something you or I would not do that you should consider that there are circumstances where this was the right thing to do.

Scott-

The main point that's being made here isn't about how much we do or don't know about this family and the dynamics of their relationship(s) with each other. The point I'm making is that the status of their family dynamic(s) has obviously reached the point of failure. To get to the point where you feel it necessary to call the police on your own child for some cannabis, it's obvious to me that you're parenting techniques(somewhere along the way) must have been compromised, even if just to a minor degree. My point, loosely put, is if the parents are so vehemently opposed to cannabis as to report their child to the police upon finding cannabis in their child's possession, shouldn't they then justly turn themselves in for endangering and neglecting that child to the point that they allowed them to come into possession of cannabis in the first place? It just seems like a little good ol' fashioned "buck-passing" to me. Now, that being said, far be it from me to tell anyone how to raise their kids.
