Parenting question: (in Off-topic)

Okay, I don't have any kids but I am pretty sure the following is an example of doing it wrong.

"His father said the photo was misleading and his son didn't light the car on fire."

The photo in question:

Clearly we are being mislead and he's just polishing the car right?
Even if he didn't torch the car it wasn't for the lack of trying.

Supporting your children is important... but seriously, I think this is a little nutty. Maybe it's just me?

Everyone goes through a Pyro phase right?

Yeah, but police cars are a bit much, no?

Actually, the interesting side note on that photo is that the kid had to petition the court to release his name so that he could publicly apologize. He's 17 and due to the Young Offenders Act can't be identified by the courts... even though he had been identified a while ago online (facebook account and address were published by someone I believe).

I just find that funny is all.
