A child starts to have rights when they are adults, when they move out, when they pay for their own bills, when they can be responsible for their actions and pay for them.
I am teasing you moody.... I don't know, that is a good question, but I think I have to believe that if you broke the law, you deserve to get punished.. now should they only take this woman's word for it, they she heard something on the telephone??? not sure about that, I think as a lawyer, I would ask for more proof, did they find the purse in his posession? did they get a description from the person that had the purse stolen from her? did they find any of the items in the purse, in the possession of this kid? hmmmmm
kid will probably get off

Lets modify this situation a bit, lets say this guy confesses to an unsolved murder on the phone. Would he get off on the charges?

I say if the phone is in the mothers name she has every right to listen to, tape, or any other thing she might want to do. This is why our world is soo screwed up.

This is something I received by e-mail. I thought it to be quite appropriate to this topic. It's kind of long, but worth reading til the end. Enjoy!!!

DON'T MESS WITH MOM

My son came home from school one day,
with a smirk upon his face.
He decided he was smart enough,
to put me in my place.

Guess what I learned in Civics Two,
that's taught by Mr. Wright?
It's all about the laws today,
The "Children's Bill of Rights."

It says I need not clean my room,
don't have to cut my hair.
No one can tell me what to think,
or speak, or what to wear.

I have freedom from religion,
and regardless what you say,
I don't have to bow my head,
and I sure don't have to pray.

I can wear earrings if I want,
and pierce my tongue and nose.
I can read and watch just what I like,
get tattoos from head to toe.

And if you ever spank me,
I'll charge you with a crime.
I'll back up all my charges,
with the marks on my behind.

Don't you ever touch me,
my body's only for my use,
not for your hugs and kisses,
that's just more child abuse.

Don't preach about your morals,
like your Mama did to you.
That's nothing more than mind control,
And it's illegal too!

Mom, I have these children's rights,
so you can't influence me,
or I'll call Children's Services Division,
better known as C.S.D.

Of course my first instinct was
to toss him out the door.
But the chance to teach him a lesson
made me think a little more.

I mulled it over carefully,
I couldn't let this go.
A smile crept upon my face,
he's messing with a pro.

Next day I took him shopping
at the local Goodwill Store.
I told him, "Pick out all you want,
there's shirts and pants galore.

I've called and checked with CS.D.
who said they didn't care
if I bought you K-Mart shoes
instead of those Nike Airs.

I've canceled that appointment
to take your driver's test.
The C.S.D. is unconcerned
so I'll decide what's best.

I said "No time to stop and eat,
or pick up stuff to munch.
And tomorrow you can start to learn
to make your own sack lunch.

Just save the raging appetite,
and wait till dinner time.
We're having liver and onions,
a favorite dish of mine."

He asked "Can I please rent a movie,
to watch on my VCR?"
"Sorry, but I sold your TV,
for new tires on my car.

I also rented out your room,
you'll take the couch instead.
The C.S.D. requires
just a roof over your head.

Your clothing won't be trendy now,
I'll choose what we eat.
That allowance that you used to get,
will buy me something neat.

I'm selling off your jet ski,
dirt-bike and roller blades.
Check out the "Parents Bill of Rights,"
It's in effect today!

Hey hot shot, are you crying,
Why are you on your knees?
Are you asking God to help you out,
instead of C.S.D..?"

Send to all people that have teenagers or have already
raised teenagers, or have children who will soon be
teenagers or those who will be parents someday OR
ANYONE WHO'D JUST GET A LAUGH ...!!!

MOM (Mean Old Mother)

not according to the law.kids can leave home at 16.(and you have to pay untill they are 21).as long as they have aroof over thier head,clothes on thier back and food in thier mouth,they will not make them come home.

I have heard that law has been changed. As long as you haven't kicked them out and you have told them they have a home and bed at your house, then you aren't responsible for them if they decide to leave. If you have kicked them out, well, then that is different story.
