I'd try to put myself in their shoes and understand the situation from their perspective. Parents need to understand that in order to have an open dialogue and understanding with their kids, they have to level with them. Only then they'd ever feel comfortable sharing their life with you. Drinking and puking in itself is not that big of a deal for a teenager if you think about it. The underlying factors contributing to it is what you need to figure out and for that you'd have to be a friend to your kids. It may be social pressure, bullying, heartbreak, or an end number of things that may have led to the incident. They may simply be curious for all you know, and there's nothing wrong with that. Keep an open mind. Try to be logical about the whole thing. your kid will be fine. Teenagers are like that! :)
Sympathetic. Any parent should be when their kid is sick, no matter why. And alcohol poisoning serious enough to cause vomiting is good reason for worry and sympathy. There's plenty of time after the kid is sober and recovering to deal with their illegal and idiotic behavior.
make it clean it up... would I feel sorry... no cause the kid is stupid... teens know better... he would be grounded, no phone. and I for sure would make it a point to make lots of extra noise to help the hang over... I would make the kid as miserably as I possibly cold without physically abusing it... Loud music, make nice greasy food, etc... The kid would never want me to catch it drinking or drunk again... move out when 18 I will furnish the moving boxes...
I would be very very pissed off
I would feel very awkward
Depending on how drunk, they should clean it up. I believe that they kind of deserved it for underage drinking.
I would tell them to sit down and I would clean it up. Then the very next day I would yell at them for getting drunk in the 1st place.
Ask them how they feel in the morning and make really loud noises if they have a hangover. That's punishment enough. We were Young once too ya know.
I'd feel sorry for them, and then hope that he/she learned some kind of lesson
from the experience, and I would hope that they would never drink that much again.
I would put them to bed, and then in the morning, I would remind them about what
happened and that alcohol is unhealthy and dangerous.
Teens get drunk, he or she will learn from her mistake.
