He's 16 next month FFs . He knows the dangers yet he still found the need to playing in HIGH SPEED Tain tracks I don't want to be calm I want to punch him in the face for his idiocy I don't want to give the whole " I'm disappointed " speech I don't want to talk to him at the moment for fear of losing my temper Stupid stupid stupid boy He's grounded for life ( obviously not for life ) but he's not going out as far as I can see anytime soon. I've taken his phone from him I don't know what else to do

As a child we watched a film where a boy got his legs cut off from a train. After that i didn't go near a train track no matter how bad the peer pressure was (and my friends were wild).
Okay. NR have a new website highlighting all facts and dangers of railway lines - it might have something that helps. Raillife DSis is waiting to hear back from your local Community Officer atm - she sometimes works with individuals, but I'll contact you via PM if anything comes up with that. How's he dealing with it all atm? Have the dangers sunk in, or is he still hand-waving it all?
This has hit a nerve with me. Some friends two years below me at university (I graduated last year) recently lost a friend due to him committing suicide.By stepping onto a train track, directly into the path of a high speed train. The driver had NO chance of stopping. The lad died instantly. People use the railways as a way to end their life deliberately, your son is playing Russian roulette with his and he needs to realize the seriousness of what he's messing with.
