Parenting is not easy. Ask your dad or mum, they would wholeheartedly agree.
It makes sense why parents have to request for help from relatives and friends to assist with tasks like babysitting.
But for this Korean mum, she didn't seek family favours. When she found out her 12-year-old son had stolen money from her, she decided it was time to get the police involved.
The boy was scared out of his wits as he paced back and forth in front of the police station with the letter in hand
An officer on the way back from patrolling duties saw the boy.
Upon questioning, he said, "I was told by my mum to bring this letter to you. I can only go home after you've signed it."
CCTV footage posted on Facebook shows the officer escorting the boy to a desk in the station, where he sat him down and asked him to explain the letter's contents.
From his confession, the officer found that the boy had stolen 10,000KRW (around RM36) from his mother because his weekly allowance wasn't enough
"I will never steal again. I am sorry, it won't happen again," he promised the officer who was seen signing the letter.
Shortly after, the mother called the station and thanked the officer for his help.
