IS THIS AN ISSUE?
A DMK Production

Your twelve year-old son, Brent, is still subject to spanking.

Today Brent asked if he could "hang out" at his friend's Jake's house.  Brent said Jake's parents were OK with it and he was even going to eat lunch there.  You know Jake and his parents well.  You made sure Brent had his phone and it was charged and told him to be home by six.  Brent was off on his bike.

Brent was home by six and said he had a fun day.  You gave no more thought to matter until you happened to be surfing around on your social media sites.  On one of the sites you can see Brent's activities.  Brent just posted a video made on his phone of his "fun day."

The problem is that is NOT Jake's yard. You recognize it as the field behind the apartment complex where another one of Brent's friends, Adam, lives.  You ask Brent about the situation.

Brent said he and Adam did go to Jake's house but they wanted to play football and the field at Adam's place was much bigger than Jake's yard.  They decided to go to Adam's apartment complex instead.  Brent said Adam's parents were OK with it and Jake's parents said it was OK too.

You also know Adam and his parents well and would have had no issue with Brent going to hang out there.  Adam lives in the opposite direction from Jake.

Is this an issue? If so, how will you deal with it?

I accepted Brent's word that it was okay with Jake's parents for him to go over and eat lunch there. He had his phone. The fact that he posted the video means he wasn't trying to hide anything.

I will simply explain the reasons I want to know where he is, and ask that he text me in the future. At this point, I probably won't even bother to mention that trouble could occur if he does this again. Let him enjoy his good day for now.

If I accept a kid to "hang out" at my house I accept responsibility for him. I'm in charge and the one to ask for permissions regarding imminent activities. That includes, if anything is unclear I will check with the other parents myself. If my son stays at a friend's house it's vice versa. So if the parents knew where they went and gave permissions all was as it should be. At 12 I don't need to know every step he makes, as long as I can track him down in a case of emergency.

Exactly. He has a phone and the other parents knew his location.

I will ask him to please send a quick text with updated plans the next time but that is all.

He's a very naughty boy and deserves a good hiding and all...
