three of my exfriends were always into trouble, usually minor things until the oldest(three brothers) got to be around 12, then things started to get gradually worse. they started into drugs, they started into breaking into abandoned houses, then eventually houses that were not abandoned.they got heavy into drugs. they got caught by the police all the time. their parents did the best that they could to try to keep them out of trouble. the oldest was the type of person that would get tight lipped, and wouldnt say much, mean kind of guy arrested for asault,(tied up some old people) breaking an entry, theft of property(car,valuables).he later got out on parole, but things didnt work out, and he was arrested(and put in prison for two consecutive life sentences) for double homicide(stabbed two people to death). the youngest, not quite as tight lipped as the oldest, is still in trouble with the law, last i heard he was arrested for drug trafficking(havent had an ear open on his other stuff) and looks to be going to prison for a few. and then there is the middle child, he was the kind that if he got caught he would rat on the others, he was always getting pulled along into his brothers' plots(he was more a follower) last i heard he was still getting caught for minor drug offenses, but he, of all his brothers has made the most progress in making something of his life. i feel for his parents, losing two children to the prison system, they tried everything. i got pulled into a few of their plots, but somehow never anything major, i never got caught, i could see the pain and unnecessary danger that was created and i have left my past behind me. your childrens freinds are their biggest influences(like it or not).do your best to make sure they pick the right ones.
dime quen son sus amigos y yo digo que classe de person tu es (tell me who your friends are, and i will tell you what kind of person you are)
