Re: A Wasted Effort
2door this is a time for a life lesson, with out being to hard on him drag his butt over to the garage and let him take every thing apart, explain why each part failed. As the bill rings up make him do a choir or something for the replacement parts.
If you just take the bike and be done with him he will remain this way with everything in his life.
Raising my kids when they broke something they either fixed it or it stayed broke, there was not a get a new one option. They learned how to fix things, that there actions weather intentional or accidental had consequences and they had to make it right.
That’s my 2¢.
