That is really unfortunate news. I'm sorry.

Best to you in dealing with this situation. I'm not sure, personally, I'd be as concerned with the use of sex sites as I would the theft of your card.

My dad's wife (yes, technically my step-mother, but I had been an adult for many years before they were married) dealt with a similar issue where her natural daughter stole her ATM card. Unfortunately, it was to get cash to buy drugs, so my step-mother turned her in. As her daughter was not a juvenille, she was arrested and will be forced to go through a drug rehab program -- the exact reason why my step-mother felt it necessary to take legal action rather than forgiving and forgetting.

I certainly don't propose that you allow your son to forgive and forget, but perhaps it's better that arrest and jail aren't involved. Your challenge now, of course (and his) is how to rebuild trust.

I wish you the best.
