Subject: BS: Should I Tell ?
From: olddude
Date: 25 Jul 11 - 09:20 AM

Seriously just before dark on Sunday I had to go to my clients office down the street to look at a software issue. I came in the office through the loading dock. Between the buildings, I saw my neighbors daughter 15 or 16 having sex with her boyfriend the same age on the grass between the buildings.

Should I

1) Tell the parents
2) Talk to the kids directly (I know them)
3) Do nothing

I really don't know what to do.

What they do is their business.

However, they take a risk by doing it it the yard and they would be mortified to think that they had been seen.

Thankfully it was by someone sensible and not by a wierdo or by a policeman.

On that Basis, I might, at the right opportunity, state "What you do with your private life is your business, but you need to be more careful in case the wrong person sees you".

Apart from that, teenagers sneaking around has been par for the case since long before romeo and juliet did it.

These will probably be the most magical days of their lives so don't interfere would be my advice.

I would just make the kids aware that if you were able to catch sight of them someone not so nice might be able to as well including the law. This is a difficult time especially as the long school summer holidays are approaching some schools might have broken up for summer already, all that free time the hot summer weather. Oh I wish I was that young again.

If the youngsters are the same age, is it still statuatory rape? Don't see how. On the other hand, if the boy was/is 18 and the girl 15/16 and it were discovered he would have to register as a sex offender. Which I also don't understand.

How well do you know the parents? If I knew them quite well, I might say something to them on the order of "Judging by what I saw I think your daughter and her boyfriend may be at the brink of something serious."

In other words, pretend you didn't see the actual activity.

But I don't know. I have never known, either, whether I would tell a good friend that her/his SO was cheating.

I dunno, if I knew them I'd have a word. As I'm female myself and the girl was (potentially?) underage, I'd probably at least ask the teenage girl if she was protected. Teenage pregnancies ain't funny and not worth being coy about IMO. I still think by the house is a bit skanky tho', ain't he got a car?

I'm with livelylass on this one. I'd be sure they each had a handfull of condoms, and the message "don't be stupid about sex." Whether you just slip them into their pocket with a note, or have a discussion is up to you. Actually having the condoms is the importan part, though. They are embarrassing/potentially dangerous for them to buy (might be seen, etc.).

You are unlikely to affect their behavior, no matter what you do or say....and 'telling' their parents just complicates it all. Unless you know one of the kids well enough to feel that they would TAKE your advice, it's probably best to just shrug...

I am with the consensus here, I am just going to stay out of it. I don't think anything good would become of it. Maybe if they keep using the place I will give the boyfriend a short talk but nothing good can come out of it just hurt feeling and embarrassment I think.

Thanks for the advice for sure. I just turn away immediately but in this cell phone age those kids could be seeing themselves in action on youtube had it been some creep that saw them

Don't kids today have plenty of chances for privacy? I suspect that they were doing it outside for the "thrill."

If it happens again, cloroform them and tattoo "don't be stupid" on their buts. Preferably in chinese characters.

Somebody here said that what the kids do with their private lives is their business.

Excuse me? Would anyone here want to be the parent of a pregnant 15-year old? Or a teenager with VD? If this goes haywire, it's the adults who will bear the brunt, and that makes the kids' behavior their parents' business.

Also, I seriously question the morals and wisdom of a boy who would have sex with a girl in such a risky location. Doesn't he know that alleys are a good place for alkies and druggies to hang out?

Well, IF ya talked to the kid and told him not to be so stupid, it would continue and if they are found out you will be suspected to be an informant.

IF ya talk to the parents (one a neighbour), you could end up in shit... with the parents OR even with the kids as mentioned above. Kids THESE days are not to be trusted. Same with parents, even if you KNOW them. This is 2011 and civility and such just seems to have evaporated.

If I'd witnessed such behaviour, before choosing to do nothing I would ask myself: Which worst-case outcome can I accept with least regret...

Possible bad outcomes of inaction:
...The girl has a baby to put up for adoption in a few months' time?
...The girl gets an STD or post-abortion infection that renders her infertile?
...Their bare butt antics end up on youtube?
Possible bad outcomes of action:
...The parent(s) or the kid(s) screams at me or worse, and calls me a liar and tells all the other neighbours I'm a pervert?

In any case one need not rat. Why not speak to those who were careless? If you decide to talk to the girl alone, take a female witness, ideally someone closer to her age than yours. If you saw your neighbour's 5 year old & friend run out from between parked cars would you do nothing? Consider that teenagers are adult bodies often accompanied by a child's underdeveloped impulse control.

Rightly or wrongly I would choose--not gladly but I'd still choose--to risk making an enemy over the risk of life-long damage to a teenaged girl any day of the week.

Surprises me the amount of people who if they knew the kids, wouldn't even mention seeing them screwing in the grass next to their house! If it was my house and they were kids I knew, I'd say something to them same as I'd say something to anyone. Why so nervous folkies? If they're out there screwing in a public place they have to be aware there will be neighbours around, though they might not give a crap of course - wouldn't be the first time kids thought they owned the world.

Use a water gun -- a super-soaker is good.

Ask if you can have a turn.

I'd talk to at least one of the kids, not because they're having sex, which is normal, but because they're doing it in public view which is more dangerous than they think. If they should be caught by the cops or reported by someone less open-minded than Dan, they would be charged with a sex crime. And, in its efforts to help prevent the threat of serious sexual crime, the criminal justice system has lumped perpetrators of all sex crimes, from forcible rape to public urination, together on sexual offender databases. One of those databases is the last place anybody wants their name to be.

Do those kids understand that, if they were to be convicted, they could never live within a certain distance of a school, or that the law would require that all their neighbors be informed of their offender status? And do they understand that those neighbors aren't going to ask why they're on the sex offender registry and give them a chance to explain about how they'd had a couple of beers and were porkin' in the side yard back when they were teenagers. Those neighbors are automatically going to think they're rapists or child molesters.

Those kids need to understand that public indecency may be a minor offense, but the consequences can hang around for life.

Date: 25 Jul 11 - 08:54 PM

My son was 18. and had a girlfriend who was 15 years old. He was immature at the time, and had several girlfriends who were younger than he was.

I wish I could remember exactly what happened, but somehow my son used me to be the intermediary for sending a message to his girlfriend - he did it in some way that made it almost impossible for me to avoid reading what he was saying to her, and part of it was that he was having sex with her - which is statutory rape in California, a legal adult having sex with a legal minor. It seemed to me that he wanted me to see that message.

So, I told him gently that I had seen the message, and that I wanted him to know that having sex with a minor three years younger than he was, could get him in a lot of trouble. I also made sure he knew about using condoms. That's about all I said, and he seemed to appreciate that.

Dan, I wonder if this young couple did what they did in plain sight, because they wanted somebody to see them and talk to them. In matters like this, talking can be just what the kids want, especially if it's done without an air of condemnation - but I'd talk to the kids themselves, not their parents. The parents might freak out.

I think 15 or 16 is pretty young for sex.

I know her parents and they would freak and deny that it ever happened so that is a no for sure. It maybe they wanted someone to catch them .. who knows .. I am sure I could talk to the boyfriend without any issues back on me .. in a gentle loving manner to let him understand the responsibility that goes with such acts. I don't know, I suspect if I did not have so much chaos with cancer right now in my own family that I wouldn't hesitate to say something. It is a difficult problem.

One of the teenagers last week while I was playing my guitar asked me if I ever smoked weed. I said yes, and he said he did ... I had a talk with him about drugs and what I have seen throughout my life. Choices, right choices are always the hardest. I said I really hope you don't anymore at your age. He seemed to appreciate the talk. Now will he listen, probably not but he did appreciate the talk.

This however is far more difficult due to the embarrassment of the girl and the guy and the family and on an on. I will let it sit for awhile for sure.

Interesting response(s) from Sum Yung Sun.

His opinion depends on the question.

If the question is framed in terms of what "should" Dan (or another adult) do under the circumstances, his answer is "Nothing" because 1. it is no one else's business and 2. Older people don't realize that people don't learn from other people's mistakes.

Then I asked, If you and a girl were having sex in a not private enough place and some one - an adult neighbor, strangers, maybe even a schoolmate, came upon you, and then or later let you know they had seen you, would you be more likely to choose your location more carefully next time when thinking about privacy?

Not that he would be likely to say "Thanks, Dan!,"   The point however, is not to illicit appreciation.

In the shoplifting case I doubt that I would say anything. But I would agonize over it, especially if it was the child of someone I loved and was close to.

Not sure in either case actually.

Ebbie, I would definitely say something and or hand out condoms in the situation Dan described. Would never say a word to the parents. That is not about an "offense" but about safety.

Regarding shoplifting, I would not hesitate to tell the parents. Also would not hesitate to tell parents about knowledge of drug problems or problems with violence, or other observations concerning behaviors that are clearly antisocial or have a high likihood of leading to antisocial behaviors.

My son has what he considers the mixed blessing of being raised in a very small town where everyone knows everyone. Because my son has told on himself on occasion, I am aware that good friends like Dani have occasionally called him out or held him accountable for unsafe or stupid but non-malicious behaviors they have observed him engaging in, when they have never said a word to me about those behaviors. I don't ever ask Dani if she has challenged my son regarding behaviors, and don't hesitate to ask when my son has revealed that Dani has challenged him about something.

Also once had a parent contact me when he joined "the pack" in on-line bullying of a younger kid on a special interest website. Once or twice have had parents contact me about issues that I consider non-issues, and have thanked them kindly for their interest and offered no other comment.

It really does take a village. It takes the capacity of discernment on the part of parents and other responsible adults to know when to speak up, and to whom.

To me it's important to consider that the laws of most lands say that activity carried on outdoors in plain view IS public business, at least to the extent that privacy is NOT expected, decorum IS expected. Where laws and standards of decorum allow for public sexual acts, ignoring the whole thing makes sense to me.

Olddude was clear about why he prefers to ignore the whole episode--his energy is spent plain and simple, none to spare, too much crap to deal with as it is. Makes sense, I understand that.

So now I'm wondering more about others, especially those who'd ignore it if they witnessed such a display. I get it about not going to the parents--they aren't the ones who had sex in public, or they'd likely react badly, either way no point going there. I'm more curious about the feeling it's not your business to address the kids. Why is it not your business? Is it because they're not your kids? Did someone rat you out for public sex, causing awful consequences? (Okay, you don't have to answer that one ;-).) But seriously, what would make it your business, maybe someone's kids doing this in your yard, or your kid in someone else's yard, or no? I'd love to understand more about the choice so many of you would make.

And since turn about is fair play: My own answer flowed from what I hope a neighbour would do if it was one of my nieces/nephew, and from the experience of having the support of non-parent adults when I was going through my teen years. It took a village to raise me and my brother and our friends.

In the US, depending on local attitudes to some degree, it is quite possible for a juvenile to be "tried as an adult." Up to about age 13 or 14 that would be unlikely except for exceedingly criminal activity, but given attitudes about juvenile sex it could happen.

It is NOT really uncommon for males at 16 and a day and older to be "tried as adult" for actions where the judge believes he "acted as an adult" (did an adult thing) and should have known better. That raises the odds tremendously.

The female in a situation such as this, appearing before some judges, would be deemed a juvenile until she's about age 30. At 16 or older, a boy could easily be tagged as a "sex offender" for the rest of his life. I've never heard of a juvenile female being similarly charged, much less convicted, but would suppose it could happen.

As to what you should do, it's unlikely that anything you say overtly to either teen is going to have any effect, other than possibly to encourage them to "do their thing" under even less favorable conditions or in more hazardous places. Telling anyone else greatly increases the likelihood of overblown and drastic (likely legal) actions that could be quite damaging to one or both of the kids.

Several decades ago (times and attitudes were a little different) an uncle who had "covert knowledge" of something similar just handed a condom to the boy, said "Here" and walked away. Nothing more needed to be said - and there really isn't anything more you can say, that is likely to have any constructive effect. (It helps to not smile with this delivery, though - I guess.)

It's an entirely different matter if it's one of your own kids. In this case they're not.

Dan,
Given your circumstances, pretending the incident never happened seems for the best. Anything else could lead to hassles that you don't have the time or energy to engage in. Supplying someone else's children with condoms could even get you into legal problems. Like you, I'd stay out of it completely. I try to avoid anything that could lead to a conflict and I don't believe that my becoming involved would increase the chances of a more positive outcome.

I never see the high school students standing on my street smoking tobacco or pot or passing around small pipes filled with ? that they heat with cigarette lighters. They are just far enough away from the high school that they are "invisible" to the school, but they are in plain sight of half a dozen houses. I don't know if that fact hasn't occurred to them or if they really don't give a hoot? Maybe the children that you "didn't see" cavorting in the grass really didn't care if they could be seen either?

That said, two questions about your chance encounter come to my mind:
If the girl were one of your daughters, and someone who knew you saw them, what would you want that person to do?

If you were the boy and an adult you knew saw you, how would you feel about that adult speaking to you about it?

Maybe one of them reads Mudcat posts?
