Cheryl when youth get in trouble now in Genesee County, they are putting ankle bracelet monitors on them. They are not allowed to leave their home after a certain time, (whatever is decided in court). It is all tracked right down to the minute by computer, so they know when a kid has left their property. I just think it is too bad , knowing how teenagers are, that the mother had to get arrested.

It is Debra.....the state ties the hands of parents, empowers the teen calling most reasonable discipline abuse. But then in this case making the Parent face consequences nonetheless. Now perhaps this parent is the type that doesn't give a rat's behind so that's why the arrest, perhaps not. But I have seen teens get backed by cps in crying abuse at having cell phones taken away, at being grounded etc etc. I just find it unreasonable.

There's a curfew in Batavia:

No child under the age of 16 years shall loiter or congregate upon, or in, or otherwise occupy any street, sidewalk, park, alley or other public place in the City of Batavia, or any entrance to a public establishment, or any stairway or hallway adjacent to such street, sidewalk, alley or other public place between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and sunrise, and on Friday and Saturday evenings between 11:00 p.m. and sunrise, unless such child shall be accompanied by a parent or guardian, or by a person over 21 years of age authorized by such parent or guardian to accompany such child..

My experience is that it is selectively enforced.

Thank you Beth, I stand corrected. I was not aware of the curfew. It certainly is not enforced on my street or any near me. Yes Kyle it really is a shame that patents can't discipline their kids, but have to be responsible for their crazy actions

I didn't know about it either Debra until I received a late night knock on my door about 8 years ago from a police officer with my daughter in tow. I was not a happy camper and yes, she was grounded for a long time. Boy I don't miss those days.
