The Peterson Trial Made Me Think of Something

If heaven forbid one of my children did something truly heinous, would I be able to turn them in? Or would I be in complete denial? What would I do if I knew that turning them in meant that they would be put to death?

G-d forbid I should ever find out, but this is the kind of thing that I think would be the ultimate Fuck you a child could serve to a parent.

In a few minutes I’ll get ready for bed, but before I do I need to kiss both of my children and make sure that they are sleeping well.

    I am not sure that I could ever stop loving them, even for something so terrible.

  2. A tough thing.

    Although you turn them in, do you stop loving them even if they are guilty of something so vile?

  3. If my children did something heinous (G-d forbid) I would have to turn them because it is clearly the thing to do. Although the victim may not be my child, he/she is someone else’s.

    It is like the Lori Hacking case in Utah. Mark Hacking confessed the murder to 2 of his brothers and they went to the authorities. It had to be the hardest thing they ever did — but it was the right thing.
