DS 17 has a few friends over, about 10 of them. I kept out of the way. At 1 I heard most of them leave. Going down to check on them and have a clear up, there are 4 left, intent on staying up all night. I see one of the boys slumped on the sofa with a bin in his arms. He is obviously drunk, with vomit on his trousers and sleeping. I make the boys wake him to make sure he is ok.
What would you do?
A. Take him home to his parents who I do not know. B. Leave him to sleep it off with the boys watching him.
I offered to take him home, the boys woke him and told him I was taking. That seemed to revive him a bit, he did not want to go.
I don't know his parents and felt a bit awkward to be turning up with their drunk son at 1.30.
I made the boys promise not to let him drink anything other than water and not to leave him alone. Cooked them some pizza and gave them chocolate biscuits. He came to a bit and said he was feeling better. I also gave him a clean pair of trousers to change into.
I have now gone to bed, worrying, but he did seem better and smiled. I don't think I would have left him if he had been unable to talk. Told the rest of them that if this happens to DS ever to call me.
