My mother was into tough love before it had a name. The bailout that the SC in the OP got would be out of the question to her.

"Hey, look--you can see the whole county from up here on this cross!"
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.
One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world.
The other, of course, involves orcs." -- John Rogers

Growing up, there was a real clear message on getting incarcerated: If you was in the wrong place at the wrong time, stuff happened, etc., then parents would move heaven and earth to spring me.
Of course, if I knew what I was doing at the time... "See you when you get out" Got to visit a half-brother who did a little time in the county lockup. He quickly figured that any plans or schemes that he had thought up for prison life beforehand... were complete BS, and he wanted nothing more to do with any kind of lockup facility, no way, no how. Got his life straightened out in a surprising hurry.

Growing up, I knew that if I went to jail for anything, I would die a long, slow and painful death of guilt. I would have been begging them not to call my parents.

I just know how that went because I used to talk to man-children all the time. Oddly enough, never talked to a woman-child being supported by their parents. It was always their boyfriend. Of course, they slept together, he paid all the rent, but they never purchased and prepared food together.
