Oh, wow! Is your question, "Would I turn my child in?" Or, is your question, "How far would I go to protect my child from going to jail? I see two separate questions here, each honoring different concepts. Would I turn my child in? Well... it all depends on whether or not my child admitted to me that they committed the crime. If I wasn't at the crime scene when it happened, then I don't know for sure what happened. However, if my child admitted to me that he/she committed the crime, I would not run to the police station to turn him/her in, but I would encourage my child to turn himself/herself in. If a police officer came to my door and asked me to turn my child in, I would not roll over and turn my child in. Instead, I would go to my child and let my child know that the police came to my door asking questions. I would ask my child to turn himself/herself in on their own. If you commit a crime, admitting to it is the right thing to do. I would relay that message to my child. But, no, I would not be the one to turn my child in. I would be in the background, asking my child to do the right thing. How far would I go to protect my child from going to jail? Well… I will go as far as I can to keep them from going to jail. I won’t, however, put myself in jeopardy of going to jail myself, which means, I won’t lie to authorities, because that is an offense that could end up landing me in jail myself, and since I have no intension of ever being locked up, I will not go to jail for anybody. But, I will go as far as I can without lying or cheating to protect my child from going to jail. Sorry kids! Continue to do the right thing and this will never be an issue to put to the test.
