A Jack R/L Production
Your 13-year old son, Van, has a number of interests, but making music with his friends is one of the top ones. To that extent, you cleaned out the garage, where one of his older brothers used to practice, and set it up so they could knock themselves out.
The one problem is that, while Bobby played with an actual band, Van tends to have jam sessions. Sometimes it's just one or two other boys, other times there's almost enough of them to perform a symphony. That's a problem because most of them want to use amps, but there aren't enough electrical outlets for the larger sessions. You've contacted a contractor who's remedying that problem for you, but it takes some work and permits, and it's not ready yet. In the meantime, you've set rules for all the boys, and explained the reasoning behind each of those rules.
That's why, when you go out to the garage this morning, you're just a little bit hot.
Since Van's keyboard is one of the cords in that mess, and since you've given him warnings about similar problems with this, you have no problem marching him out to the garage to help unplug everything and care for the cords, before marching him into your office to remind him why things catching fire is a bad idea.
Here's your real problem though. You know that some of your other sons - Barry, John, Colt, and Kenny had been out there the night before. However, John plays drums, and doesn't plug anything into sockets; Barry's cheap slide guitar and amp are unhooked and put away, and Colt and Kenny took their instruments and amps inside with them.
are older than their brothers. Are they in trouble for not supervising better or following up?

Not only were they there, but some of the equipment they use when at your house is also among the things still plugged in. You have permission to deal with all three of them as if they were your own kids.
Is a sore bottom for Van enough? Does he need more? And are any of the other boys also in trouble?
