Kids these days

Seeing as how I don't have any kids, I'm usually reluctant to give other people parenting advice, but something tells me that these people need to have a good, long talk with their daughter. Well, as soon as she makes bail, anyway:
Delaware State Police said they were called to a Laurel home about 3 a.m. Sunday by the girl's parents, who had locked themselves inside their bedroom while their daughter threatened them from outside and attacked their door with knives, the New Castle-Wilmington (Del.) News Journal reported Tuesday.

The girl's father told officers he had taken away the teenager's phone after suspecting she had stolen money from her mother to purchase minutes.

Police said the girl put down her two large kitchen knives after speaking to officers for about 10 minutes. She was arrested and charged with possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, two counts of aggravated menacing, terroristic threatening, disorderly conduct, theft, criminal mischief and possession of a deadly weapon by a person prohibited.
I think the lesson all of us can learn here is pretty obvious: If you're going to take away your psycho teenage daughter's cell phone, you should probably hide all of the knives in the house first. Live and learn, huh?
