its not his fault he was chasing me with knives. I should not have told him he wasn't allowed to play with them. It was my fault. Just ask him. That's why I got in trouble for it. Cos I started it. Whole other story..

Was there other consequences put in place like taking away luxuries or not allowing him to attend fun outings with his siblings etc?
Wow, sounds like he needed some professional help of some kind. Not your fault at all...... big hugs
It was some years ago now I can't remember the exact year though sorry, it was investigated by the local police and school councillors, dad was never charged but it definitely took its toll on our family,
I guess that the point of my post is it puts a weapon in the hands of children who don't fully understand the consequences of what tall stories they tell.
Do we take the responsibility of knowing right from wrong from parents and put it in the hands of children??
Blissed out - From what I remember of what a read...would have been about 2 or 3 smacking debates ago that I read it (LOL) that the whole point of the law in NZ was to address child abuse. It actually hasn't. As far as I'm aware the abuse rates remain the same (don't know what they'd be now) I don't remember what the youth crime rate showed, but it wasn't surprising if I recall. I can't be F'd looking now cos I'm lazy and I'm waiting for dh to come home with whipped cream and nuts so we can make sundaes LOL (Yeh ok I'm a lazy so and so...but oh well my dh isnt home much so I'm relishing being spoilt right now)
