Would you turn in your son or daughter to the police if they committed a crime or help them getaway?
Yes, I would turn them in.
If I had children they would no better than to come to me. My mother always told me and my brothers not to waste our "one call" contacting her if we had committed a crime. She also wouldn't harbor fugitives.
It would depend on the crime. If I felt that my son had done something wrong, then I would expect hin to face the music. If it were the law that was unjust, I would help him to evade it. If for example, the law decided to put gay men to death, then I would hide him and try to get him out of the country to somewhere he could be safe. I would do the same for any other gay man, too.
My dad would turn me in. And I wouldn't blame him. He's taught me the difference between right and wrong, and the value of the law. Hence I'd do the same to my kids.
We would talk about it first and then come up with the right way to handle it. I cannot imagine a scenario where I would give them over to the police. I would maybe take them downtown and turn them over to a judge. But that would have to be a joint decision weighing the options and consequences of our available choices. I am sure we would have to get some kind of handle on any victim. I care less about the law than making things right with anyone harmed.
Sometimes I wish I could just be a black and white kind of guy. But I just can't see things that way, like others. I just counted up the years between my children. Nearly one hundred years and they have to date never made me come close to having to make such a decision. knock on wood.
Definitely, it is a Yes. As a parent I have always taught them what is right and what is wrong. And if you help them get away it would be an encouragement for them and they may land up doing something more serious in future. They need to understand that by doing wrong they can never get away. Only punishing them does not mean that your responsibility is over. You need to show them right path as well so that the children can lead a right life afterwards.Most important is showing the right path rather than supporting wrong

My favorite story to tell is how my 5 year old poured an entire bottle of dish detergent in the back of our toilet "just because" and when he flushed a few times it spilled foam all over our carpet. It was hard to clean up, but well worth the laughs.
