I agree with mayandsofiasmommy. He's most likely in a gang, and until she gets him out of that situation, he won't change. He can't. This is one of those situations where I'd be scraping together every last penny I had and pleading to anyone I knew in order to get together enough money to move far away. Get the kid a new start where he's not expected to be a thug and can move on without looking over his shoulder scared because he left the gang.

There used to be such a thing as public shaming, a type of legal punishment where individuals would be humiliated in public for their mistakes. It's been gaining some traction, as petty thieves and other criminals have been getting shamed for minor wrongdoings.

I'm kind of dreading the point when my kids hit their teens. I know I am going to find it really hard to react/punish/guide them in an age appropriate way. Teens are so sensitive and whilst my impulse may be to do something public to show them consequences, they can be so fragile. I definitely was.
