We went with the usual consequences until Jan. 1st--restrictions from some of the favorite things---and I am looking into getting a mentor assigned to him from a mentoring agency.

We did not change as we grew older; we just became more clearly ourselves. ~Lynn Hall

Okay, the first job would be to help him figure out why he made the decision. At least that's what I would do.

He is not depressed nor does he have compulsive behaviors/disorders. He's smart, keeps his grades up, & is usually a good kid. He says that he doesn't know why he did it and that other children were not a part of the decision.

It would really dpend on the causes of his decision making. Often, bad decisions are the result of stress and/or depression in teens. If that were the case, getting the stress alleviated or the depression treated would be the appropriate options.

13 year old son made a ridiculous choice and it took him 2 weeks to come clean--glad he came clean.

I won't get into specifics but I was just wondering what you think good consequences would be?

Nothing abusive please.
