My 15 year old son had a friend over to play video games when I was out of town. The friend invited a few other friends to meet at my home before the boys went to a christmas party. The boys that my son did not know ransacked the house and stole all of my liquor... My son knowingly took the beer from my refrigerator, so he is not lacking fault. He is extremely remorseful, embarrassed and upset as this was the first party he's ever attended. He admitted to drinking beer at the party.
I am more upset and dissapointed about my son stealing the beer from the refrigerator than the other events that ensued from the evening. I believe he has learned his lesson for having people he does not know in our home without a parent in attendance.
What is an acceptable punishment?
(FOR THE RECORD: I did not leave my son home alone. I am divorced and his father allowed him to stay the night at a friends.. Which resulted in them coming by my empty home. He has never broken my trust previously and is honestly a morally strong child. I, on the other hand, was a horrible teen and not naive to things of this nature!)
He should lose his game station for a month and he should have to go down and speak to someone who has to deal with the repercussions of underage drinking .

I like both of the above answers. Losing all technology privileges and paying back the money and NO parties in his near future!
