I can vouch for this. When I moved in with my father mainly it was due to my getting in trouble with the law at least once a week. Nothing major, but I was well on my way to being a regular of the system. When I moved in with him, he said "boy, I'm not having any of that bs you pulled while living with your mother". That was all he ever said about it. About a month after I moved in with him, he said, "let's go get a glider". We did, we built it together and learned to fly it together.

I've built several other planes after that, and never once aside from the occasional ticket had a run in with the law again. I guess you could say that by him getting me interested in planes, gave me an outlet a way to express myself and a reason to not roam the streets.
