Dad sells GH III because his kid smoked a joint

GH JointA dad in Canada decided to do the ultimate for his 15 year-old son…hit the streets in search of the very rare Guitar Hero III game in his neck of the woods.

After lots of sweat and miles, he scored and went home to give his son the grand prize. All was cool until he arrived home early.

Read the saga in the dad’s own words on his posted ad from eBay:

"So I spent who knows how many hours of my life trying to get "Guitar Hero 3" for the Nintendo Wii for my 15 year old son who has been begging for it since he was born (well not really but he’s wanted it for awhile). So after waiting in lines and going into every game store in the city over the last 2 weeks (practically being laughed at when I asked for guitar hero 3) I finally got lucky and got one at EB Games (they just got a shipment of them 25 minutes before I walked in!).

"So I was so relieved in that I had finally got the Holy Grail of Xmas presents pretty much just in the nick of time. I couldn’t wait to spread the jubilance to my son.
Then, yesterday, I came home from work early and what to I find? My innocent little boy smoking pot in the backyard with 2 of his delinquent friends."

The father has decided that he can’t give his son the gift because he doesn’t want to reward bad behavior. He’s a school teacher and says he’ll take GH III off of eBay if anyone can convince him that he should still give his son the game.

"Anyways, I am now finding it hard to justify rewarding him with this gift after he so greatly disappointed me. I know smoking a joint isn’t the end of the world, but if you can convince me that he deserves the gift, then I will end the auction. You will have to be very convincing. I am an elementary school teacher and I know that rewarding bad behavior is just asking for more of the same…"

What do you think the father should do and why?
