Update on scary experience

This is an update regarding my 13yr old dd who was forced by a gang of ten boys to enter our home to give them beer...

I did contact the police, I found out the names of two of the boys, and sure enough the local authorities had received complaints about them before...( they beat other kids up quite regularly ). The police notified the parents, so I'm hoping the parents will make a difference.

I figure, if these parents are contacted by the police again, it should serve as a wake-up call that their sons are bullies. I haven't seen these boys, nor will my daughter hang out at that particular park...the kids who hang out there are nothing but trouble - all they do is smoke cigarettes, pot and beat people up.. The police said they will increase surveillance in that area...I hope so.

I also don't want her hanging out with the two girls either, they are supposed to be my DD's friends, yet one of them is now going out with the meanest boy in the group - the one who threatened to scar my dd's face. What's wrong with these kids? I'm just glad my dd doesn't go to the same school as any of these kids.

Glad the incident was reported to the police. I think you are doing the right thing by keeping your dd away from these girls and from places these bullies will be. Hopefully she'll start hooking up often with her other friends where she doesn't have to worry about her safety!

Sorry to hear your dd had such a fright, but I hope she learned something from it. Those people you think are your best friends can often be the ones who hurt you the most.

Try and help dd get into community projects or sport - that could be the best way to widen her circle and they seem to be the best places to meet the right kind of people.



P.S: Keep on the Police - check that they are doing what they promised otherwise they might decide that keeping watch on these kids is less of a priority than it should be.
