Balancing the lesson taught by dealing with law enforcement against the consequences of having drug possession on their child's record is the dilemma facing parents.
The arrest of an 18-year-old in Muskego for marijuana possession sparked a conversation on Patch about the responsibility of parents in relation to their child’s drug use. In this particular case, the teen wouldn’t let police search his car despite their suspicions, but when his mother arrived she gave the go-ahead and the man was arrested and charged with marijuana possession. Commenters raised both sides of the argument on behalf of the mother. Was she a good parent for refusing to cover for her son’s lawbreaking behavior? Or was she a bad parent for saddling her young adult son with a misdemeanor charge that could impact college and/or job prospects? (Or should she have had any say in the fate of her legally adult child?) Tell us how …

A look back at the top headlines from Fox Point-Bayside Patch in 2011.
At year's end it's nice to take a look back at where you came, which offers a good look at where you're going. At Patch, July brought a Naval helicopter landing in Ellsworth Park, a fire that destroyed a PAC office, weed hidden in a pair of shoes and the affects of the smoking ban in Fox Point. UPDATE: Helicopter Departs After Making Unexpected Landing in Bayside A U.S. Navy chopper made a precautionary landing because of mechanical problems and left residents nearby wondering what was going on early that summer morning. "I heard it over head and it sounded kind of loud," said Chris Konnor, whose yard overlooks Ellsworth Park. "Maybe a little abnormal. I was a little scared it was going to fall out of the sky.
