Stolen iPods are an epidemic with teenagers. Now is a good time for some intervention.

Do they believe that another kid gave it or loaned it to them? If my kid came home without it, we go get it immediately hope its not because they don't want to pay the amount of money they cost buying one for their kids, or themselves.

As my 13yr. old son charged an iPod for a friend, because his friend had NO chord, I became suspicious. Finally I overheard one had been stolen and my son confirmed it. I reminded them how would they feel if theirs was stolen, and what kind of reputation they'll end up with. Also the web of trouble they would have to face that comes with getting known by police. Or even someones big brother.
With some positive coaching it was returned to its owner. We all felt much better.
Some aren't so lucky. There was a lesson learned about trust and who can be trusted. Hopefully it will help them to make better choices in the future, and become people.
