As a kid, especially males, it is hilarious to make someone do something they shouldn't do in other words theft, destruction of property, etc... it's kind of like a right of passage, a show of bravery if you will...

That being said, even a stupid child isn't going to do these sorts of things unless they know they can get away with it, and what better time to get away with illegal activities than after dark...

Not only that but you have to establish early on that you have control over what they do, if you exercise enough control at a young age, they won't start to realize you have no REAL say in anything until they are much older, but at that point hopefully they have out grown the need to impress friends by doing and saying offensive things just because they are shocking.

Child rearing is remarkably similar to business management, and any manager will tell you that if you are more concerned with whether your employees like you, than you are with their performance in meeting goals, they will walk all over you and show no respect. I learned that lesson the hard way.

Children/Adolescents should be subjected to night-time curfews {as a way to reduce crime}.
