Because you've never done anything growing up that was morally wrong? It's not always bad parenting that results in kids doing this shit, sometimes its kids being kids, and as I agree with you that they had no right to destroy your property or even be on it, hurting children even when not permanent is not a positive way or constructive way to punish a child.spartandude said:little update, so ive put the fence up again, actually with the help from the kids father, who actually not only agreed with me but is pretty cool guy, brought me a pint and was pretty frienly towards me
im also now looking for a special pain for my fence, i dont know what its called (would be able to find it when i do) but it basically paints the fence but will stain most fabrics pretty badly (id paint they inside of my fance with it) so if they do sneak in again not only will they be easily caught and will definately discourage any further attempts
well arguably yes i didnt give her a chance but quite frankly if her kids (12 and 14) think its ok to break a window and then sneak into someones garden then quite frankly i do think something has gone wrong on their end
and it was the dad, not her who compansated me and actually supported me in this
Have you considered that given the situation that maybe she decided to calm down and not include herself in the compensation conversation as to cause less conflict, thus the husband speaking with you?
booby trap your yard if you think it will deter them, its your property, why not? I think you had every right to be pissed but hurting them in my mind made you just as juvenile as they were being. Unless you can tell me how twisting ears teaches children not to climb fences, I think she did have a right to be angry as well.So next time id suggest holding their sweaters or leading them outside. Inflicting pain on them just allowed the situation to inflate, and I think that could have been avoided.
