If I think there is a chance this behavior might occur, I insist on supervising. I dont allow many trips to the Mall . For my dughter, age 14,it is a peer pressure thing. I can talk and do about so many issues but if she is in situations without support and guidance from me, the parent seh can act oppoiste of her values. I do see some growth in that reapect but I think it takes a long time to get to that point. I am encourging friends with people that this is not an issue with. The shopplifitng has not speicically come up but I will not let her just hang with kids in town,at the Mall unless I can turst the other teen and there is some semblance of adult supervison. Sallie

Yes, I think you need to tell the other parent about the shoplifting. I would keep it simple and just deliver the facts as you know them, and let him know that you would want to know if you were in his shoes and that's why you are letting him know. And you're telling the dad so he can help his child and talk to him about it.

You can tell your kids that you are telling his dad and you can talk to them about WHY you are talking to his dad. It takes a village
