While I think talking directly with the girls is admirable, and often
preferred, I would make a report to the police. It would serve as a record
should the girls make good on their threat of returning to do more damage,
and two, it would allow the police to lend a bit of authority if they visit
the girls' home. It would also impress upon them and the parents the
seriousness of their actions. Without knowing the girls background, it
might nip bad behavior in the bud. If they acted thus so far, it may be
that they already flaunt their disrespect in other areas. And the police
may be able to suggest how to approach the girls in a positive manner.

Temptation seems to be succumbed to all over..
We planted flowers in our yard, along the street, in the yard of the
firehouse next door.
Two teenage girls from a couple blocks away yanked the ones they liked
right out..roots and all. They broke off the blooms, tossed the roots in
the street. When questioned why they stole flowers by an older gentleman,
he was told to mind his business or they'd be back to cause more damage.
I want to go to the house they live in and talk to them. Any suggestions
for how to approach the family?
