I personally don't like punishing the whole family for one persons
actions.  It's a Nazzi tactic.  One person escapes from camp, you kill
that person and a few random others.  My home is not a Nazzi
concentration camp.  I remember when I was young every child would be
punished if nobody fessed up to something.  I wont even do that.  Maybe
it works in the military, but I won't have it in my home.

My two cents.
