Police: Parents should talk to kids about holiday behavior

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Charleston police are warning parents of some other safety concerns with their kids this holiday season. 

Police said they often respond to more incidents of shoplifting and vandalism during holiday breaks when children are under less supervision. 

Sgt. Trevor Shelor advised parents to set limitations with their kids and have a conversation about what is expected of them during Christmas break. 

"This doesn't have to be a formal talk, it can simply be commentary during the news or a TV show when the topic comes up. Set reasonable limits on when they should come home in the evenings, know who they are with, know who is driving," Shelor said.

He also said parents should make sure their children understand they should never get in a car with someone who has been drinking.
