how about a slightly more moderate suggestion, such as letting them split the tab for having police and tac units show up? if they have the money they'll miss it and learn. if they don't, they get it, then they'll learn. if a parent has to cover it, no matter how slack they might be, the kid should still get it. and if not, then resort to something harsher.
and firemachine: i doubt anal rape would solve anything.
