Re: Tips to catch teen sneaking out at night
Methods for detection of late night escapades?

You will need: 2 pieces of scotch tape, one long hair.

Tape a hair over the doorway to the child's room, tape a hair on every windowsill, tape a hair on any and every doorway out of the house.

You will know if someone left, the hair will only be broken by a door opening or a window opening.

It also works well for things like drawers and is virtually invisible unless you know where you put it.

Re: Tips to catch teen sneaking out at night
He argues about anything! Anything that has to do with him stopping what *he* wants to do makes him mad. It's like he's an adult in a kids' body. If he has to leave to go to the store with us, he's angry. If he has to stop playing a game to do homework, he's angry. Basically anything that he doesn't agree with, he gets angry and fights tooth and nail almost every day. It's exhausting. And my wife and I will NOT have him take meds, but at this point we are at a loss. he is literally *always* on restriction. It makes me sad. He's lived a life where he has had everything a kid could want and more. We give him tons of love and attention....take him places. I just donm't understand.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 647


He may think he's an adult in a kid's body, because he hasn't figured out that being an adult does NOT = being able to do whatever you want whenever you want to.

I'd already figured that out when I was 9 thanks to my smart aleck mom. I'd say, "I want a new bike" and she'd say, "Yeah, well I want a new car. So buy me a new car and I'll buy you a new bike." I'd say, "I don't want to do dishes" and she'd say, "Yeah, well I don't want to work. So go work 40 hours a week at the office and I'll do the dishes." Sheesh, half the time we were packed into the car, we didn't even know where we were headed. We'd say, "where are we going?" and our parents would say, "crazy".

Don't let your son wear you down. I used to try to be enough of a stubborn pain to make my parents give up, but they were more stubborn than I was. When I was in 2nd grade we had a stand-off that lasted for 4 hours over me not wanting to drink my milk. We all sat at the kitchen table until 11:00 PM staring each other down over that glass of milk. Finally, I said, "I'm not gonna drink it, because it's not cold anymore" then my mom took the glass away (and for a moment I thought I'd won) but then she filled up another cup with cold milk and set it in front of me. I drank it and threw the empty cup at her head.

I still think diet could be a part of your son's problem. I've heard that a lot of kids who've been diagnosed with ADD have been fine after having their diet changed.

It could also be that he's just willful (like I was, and still am in many ways). If he's willful, then you have a big job on your hands, because you don't want to kill his spirit (being "a fighter" is a good thing, and quite frankly the world could use more fighters), but you do need to carefully guide him (because being "a fighter" can also be a bad thing if the fighter remains angry and self-centered).

You may need to teach him to start putting himself in other people's shoes. Sounds simple, and it may even be something you take for granted so much that you don't think it should even need to be done. But when I was very young, I really did need to be taught this. I had no natural regard for others. I needed to be told, "how would you like it if someone did that to you" for the concept to even cross my mind. I still remember the first time my dad said that to me. It actually blew me away and I spent the rest of the day thinking about it, because prior to that I'd never given any thought whatsoever to how my actions might make other people feel. Now I don't need to be told this in order to take into consideration how my actions may affect others, but back then I did. And I'm glad my parents caught it early enough to set me on a better path than the one I would've ended up going down if I'd been left to my own devices.

Re: Tips to catch teen sneaking out at night
I loved reading all of the tricks and thoughts on how to catch your child.

I'd like to add an additional thought....

for all of the responses that say..."just talk to your children and warn them of the consequences, just be honest with them and they'll be honest with you... " blah, blah, blah.
I'm sorry but those few people must not be a parent of a confused teenager. I say "confused" because at some point during the teenage years some teenagers just decide that their parents are the biggest, dumbest, lumps of worthless flesh that ever walked. Some teenagers, no matter the consequences will act first, and think hardly ever. I have warned my teenager, shown them all of the things that could happen, talked until I thought I was out of words. My teenager still does whatever they want.
My real reason for wanting to know if they've snuck out or not... is leverage... and just being aware. If I know when they do it, at least I'll know to watch more... or install an alarm or whatever... but I first have to "know"... I don't want to wrongfully accuse.
Anyways, I know it's an old post... but I really enjoyed it. rant

Let him/her go out. They're going to do it anyway. Tell 'em to call if there's any trouble and you'll pick them up, or pay for the cab when they get home.
That way, they'll learn going out is trouble, and stay home.

Shotgun Shell on a Rat Trap:
A shotgun shell is attached to a standard rat trap and painted so as to camouflage the apparatus. It is then positioned on a tree or rock with the shotgun shell pointing to strike the victim's region and rigged to a trip wire. Note that the trip wire for this device has to be aligned with the shotgun shell's blast cone. Even if you do not see the wire, you can avoid it if you are lucky enough to have noticed the trap before triggering it.


Explosives:
Gunpowder is available at any firearms dealer in sufficient quantity to improvise an antipersonnel explosive. Further, powerful explosives can be mixed easily from basic household chemicals. Booby traps of this sort may be laced with nails, glass and even chemical and biological agents. The trip wire for this device can be almost anywhere. A short length of household pipe six inches to one foot long is commonly used as a housing.

Re: Tips to catch teen sneaking out at night
I caught my son sneaking out last night (Mon.). So this past night i set the security system. At 5 AM the security system went off. hhhmmmm??? He told his father (who went to check on it) he had opened the door to go smoke a cigarette. Last January his grades went from A's & B's to F's and we had to constantly stay on him to get passing grades. He's a Senior this year and sleeps in every class, every day. The first 6 weeks he had 1-F, 2-D's and a C by the skin of his teeth.
We've been having test run to see why "he can't sleep at night and can't stay awake all day"-thyroid, mitral valve,psychologist.
The boy has great scholarship chances and choices but at the way he's failing school....what do I do???

Re: Tips to catch teen sneaking out at night
My sister that is ten years younger than I am, did this. My dad duck taped her bedroom door. She ended up leaving the home at the age of 16 and lived with someone else until she went to college. She was very difiant and a trouble maker, that was risky in what she did.

She is now a state police officer in the state of new jersey. She is very feminine and has a nice relationship with an older fellow. So the good news is, this could be passing and she has a chance to mature and become a good person!

I was also told from my grandmother that my mom did it too. She snuck out and climbed down the tree and stunk out that way.

You need to catch your daughter and then talk to her.

Re: Tips to catch teen sneaking out at night
If your kid is sneaking out. Then it's time for them to get their own place.

People on this forum seem to forget that rules are in place to keep people from getting into a situation that might lead to harm. I bet sometimes sneaking out can lead to really good times also. BUT! :-)


If you tell your son not to sneak out. And he does. Then he is ready to live on his own.

He is telling you this with his action.

My little sister did this one time and left the window open so she could get back in. The only problem is that someone watched her sneak out and they snuck in.

Cause and effect.

I feel that the youth in the USA are way to spoiled. Everything is given to them and they have no clue as to what it takes for them to have food a home and good parent or two.

I have 3 kids and I thank god that I am able to spend all my time with them.
I can't understand why people can't seem to see that many of the problems that we have now are caused by not having a stay at home mom or dad. Watching their kids with love and understanding.

If you feel he is to young to move out and be on his own. Then maybe the problem is in you. You must teach them how to live in this world. Thats your job as a parent. All 3 of my kids know how to cook clean shop and how to work for the money they need to do this. Soon I'll be teaching them how to pay bills and keep an eye on the government and the other parts of the world. I also teach them to speak more than 2 different languages.

But I also understand that they could end up being crack heads. So I teach them the signs of going down a path that might not lead them to where they what to end up.

If you hang AROUND CRACK HEADS.. EVEN THO YOUR NOT A CRACK HEAD YET. IT JUST MEANS YOUR A CRACK HEAD IN TRAINING.

I used to spread juniper needles around the house and then lock up the ex wife's shoes. If she left the house at night she would have seriously injured feet. Didn't stop her from smoking crack with the neighbor, but at least I knew when she did it. If she was stepping funny, she'd been crack whoring again. We didn't stay married for long.

become a good parent, establish a relationship with your child in which they do not feel they need to sneak out to do anything, reinforce it with the promise of severe punishment if they do stupid shit.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 129794


Oh shut up! It has nothing to do with established relationships blah blah blah. I snuck out constantly as a teenager and I went to GREAT lengths to do it. My mom didn't allow me to stay out past a certain time of night because WHY because she was doing her job and parenting. I however being the teenager that I was failed to appreciate that and felt I could do whatever I wanted because well hey I was cool and grown up and knew EVERYTHING. Only now in my adult yrs and being a parent myself do I understand my mom's intent.

To the OP, sorry but if you are wanting to catch him/her you will have to set booby traps. It's the only way. It won't stop them...but it will make them rexamine how much they can get away with.
If he is going out the front door it will be easy to set a trap, if he is going out the window depending on where you live you can wrap it with that cellophane stuff they use for windows to keep the cold out. There isn't any putting that back easy.
