I would have let him sleep!

There is nothing wrong with letting your child make his own choices, and letting them face the consequences. I am not a drill sergeant parent, nor a helicopter parent. My kids are very responsible. You're talking about track here, each man for himself. It's not like he's the drummer in the band and chose to sleep instead of going to the concert. Once you FORCE a child (or adult for that matter) to do something, the love for it is gone.

The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion.
