In brief: Teach

We need to teach our teens that alerting responsible people about dangerous potential is the responsible, safe thing to do.
And is not "ratting" on your friends.This is a change to generations of teenage behavior.

In brief: Communication

It is important for parents to have an open communication with their kids about potentially dangerous behaviors of others and parents should not be afraid to contact both the other parents and the authorities, especially if you think somebody is in severe danger to hurt themselves or other people.
