what would you do if you found out that your neighbors son was sneaking out of the house after his mom goes to work, going out for hours and coming home before she does? should she be told? he is 16 and this happens often.

Wtf do you care? He's not hurting anybody. And what are you doing watching your neighbors house to know when she comes and goes and when he comes and goes? Kinda strange

I would tell them. I mean 16 year olds should not have a social life whatsoever. He should stay in the house until he is 26. At least. Actually next time he goes out follow him, do some recon and report back to the FBI. This sounds like an important case and might be terror related. Do not attempt to apprehend this extremely dangerous individual. Monsters like this should not be able to walk the streets.

STFU and mind your own. kids in camden have been sneaking out of the house since they are 12-13 years old. we did it nightly almost every summmer and weekend. Out living life while you try and bring people down and stop them from experiencing life. pathetic.

you say that now but than you read post about parents bitching wondering where were they when something happened to the teen! There is a curfew for a reason. They don't belong on the street. Nothing good comes from a teen on the street at night. NOTHING!

His mother needs to know. She can benefit from the info or not. That is her choice. You will feel real bad if something happens to this kid and you had done nothing to stop him in the first place. As a mother, I would want to know!!

The FBI needs to know ASAP. This is a matter of life and death. Please call 911 immediately. This monster can't walk down the street.

Let the mother know, and let her take it from there.

If it was my teen, I would want to know. Sure, teens are going to break the rules...but they also need to realize there are consequences. He knows that he is breaking the rules by sneaking out. If he gets caught, the only person to blame is himself.

Anyone who feels sorry for the teen needs to grow up and take a lesson in parenting...

You are an ass! I can only hope that this kid will crawl in your window some night while he is suppose to be sleeping! Grow up!! Or are you sneaking around with the kid in question. Obviously he is up to no good. With a girl? Who cares!! Pilfering during night hours? We all care!!

Phil your an idiot.. You will probably be the first to come on and b*tch about a teen vandalizing or stealing something of yours... This teen may not be doing any harm but it is teenagers most of the time robbing cars around here.. This person is just asking advice, so show some respect. Keep your childish remarks to yourself. Your no comedian.there is nothing wrong with concerned citizens.

WTD, as a parent, I would suggest just asking your neighbor if they know about it. They may know about it but most likely they don't. I was a teenager once as well and thought that I was invincible...not many good things came from that time. I have some funny memories but I also have many memories that make me cringe and ask myself "what the hell were you thinking".
If they are simply hanging out at a friends house to stave off boredom it is likely not going to be a big deal. If, however, they are doing something that could affect the rest of their life and the lives of their family, I think that the family would be appreciative of your observation.
The parents need to deal with it, the best that you can do is simply let them know what you have seen and leave it in their hands.
This is a good thing to be thinking about, and I hope that when my child reaches this age we have neighbors like you.
Good Luck.

And you are what now? about 14-16? With nothing but a tremendous amount of life experience?
Also, how are all of those kids that sneaked out of their homes at 12 or 13 doing today? Are they still in high school? Are they in College? If so, what are their grades like? There is a pretty profound connection between parental involvement as well as expectations/discipline and overall success.
Until you are a parent, and have the mental capacity to understand what the original posters dilemma is, perhaps you should just keep your mouth shut and learn a few things from people that actually have children and a sense of responsibility to their family and community. I would assume that you have heard the adage "it takes a village to raise a child" This is what this person is talking about.

I was out of line with what I said. When I got to thinking about if it were me, I realized I was in the wrong. But in this town, nobody has figured out yet that sometimes its just best to mind your own business. I understand where this person is coming from but sometimes saying something could create problems for themselves. For instance when this 16 year old finds out the neighbor told on him and he starts vandalizing their property because he's mad. Its a possibility. I don't know its a tough spot to be in.
