"OLDS 1999 Intrigue. Totally uncool parents who obviously don't love teenage son, selling his car. Only driven for three weeks before snoopy mom who needs to get a life found booze under front seat. $3,700/offer. Call meanest mom on the planet."
Yay, Jane! John Rosemond would be proud of you.
Rosemond advocates such consequences in his book, "Teen Proofing." From where I sit, it's a helluva lot better for the kid than waking up in the ICU, or not waking up at all.
I bought the book and have applied some of its principles to raising my 14 year old daughter. Makes life a bit easier, and she's a better (and maybe even happier) kid for it. If you have a teen or almost-teen, buy it, read it, live it.
