This made my roll my eyes...I bet these parents are the kind who will be calling into their son's place of employment ten years from now when he has the sniffles. All that happened to their son is a natural consequence to his actions. Being sent home, being left alone at the airport, is fitting. Were the others suppose to halt the trip just because he decided to break the rules? Were the other students suppose to go without a needed chaperone on the streets of a foreign country because this guy couldn't handle being safe and sound in an airport? My word, it is not like he was left on a back alley and forced to catch a cab. If I were the parent, I would be happy that the consequence was as uncomfortable as possible. But I am guessing that discipline isn't too high on these parents' priority list. Also, he is eighteen! Isn't it about time he grew-up?
