get myself in these situations???? A friend of my sons and his brother came by. Well the older kid is 17 his brother is 15. I don't know there parents at all. Supposedly the parents are alcoholics and they beat up on the kids. The 17 year old is stating he is on his own now. Anyway they have no where to stay for the night. I am letting them crash here. It's Friday night. They said they have some place to go tomorrow. I ask them how long they would be allowed to stay there and they said as long as they want. It's around the neighborhood somewhere. I am not completely comfortable with them staying here but how do you turn kids out on the street that have no where to go??? We did tell them it's only for tonight and also they can't come hang out with our son because he is in trouble right now. Hope I am not doing the wrong thing.
