    I just want to thank everyone for their support and prayers. I was reluctant to respond to this golo because I know that there are alot of cruel people out there who like to put the blame on the parents. I have found relief and comfort from this! I think the hardest part of it all was knowing what he had done and the people that he was hurting. I am very thankful that no one got hurt because people have the right to protect their property and they were all lucky that no one did get killed.
    I hope that my son learns from this, if not he knows that his life will be behind bars and he is the one that got himself there. Society, nor do the parents make these teens do the things that they do. They just want an easy way out to make money without having to work. They think that the drugs and being in a click is cool! So I guess they will be cool together were they belong. Again I just want to thank you all for the support.

    coatedwluv-You sound like a very good Mother! My heart goes out to you and the rest of your family. Yes, especially your son in trouble. I have two children, 21 and 19. They too have done some pretty stupid things. You cannot control who they hang out with or what they choose to do after they have left your home. You know in your heart you did the best you could. Just love him as you always have.

    Hey, look at the upside. At least they didn't try to kill the drivers of those cars.

    coatedwluv: I greatly admire you, and let me give you some encouragement. I know a real good family that went through a tough time with their son (drugs, prison.) The young man is out now, and is a different person. He has completely reverted to the family values with which he was raised. God bless you, and know that it will turn out well for your son.

    As the mother of a son who went through his own rough patches, I can honestly say that it's not right to blame the parents. My son grew up in church, in a loving family environment. He made the choice when he was in his teens to hang out with the wrong people. Thank God, he's past all that now. coatedwluv, my prayers are with you and your family. Your son must pay the consequences and you accept that. You are a brave and good mother.

    I know two of those boys and they are idiots...

    coatedwluv.......... Thank goodness I have overcome some of the things that my mother would not have to do like you have had too. I never got into the 'drug' arena but I have made some stupid mistakes in my life..... My Mother would have done the same thing. It is always hard to expedite hard love - but you did the right thing. I tried my heart out to do the same for one of my step children, until their Mom thought it was a measure and left. He is a mess now! I told her five years before she left she would not be able to control the situation if she did not take it in her own hands. Well she left and now she lives with it everyday. My heart goes out to you and the RIGHT thing has been done - regardless who agrees with you or understands it right now. Prayers.....

    To the parents of these young men, you are in my prayers. To the mother who "turned in" her son, I applaude your strength and desire to have your son turn his life around. This will make a difference in the lives of all these men's siblings (hopefully for the better).
