Broke one down at my Moms house because.... well that's when I was.....well younger.If the lock area is destroyed then you need to replace the jamb.Not impossible but will take some care.remove trim,both sides,use saws-all to cut nails,and head piece from jamb.Replace with like jamb stock and door stop,cut in new strike plate and hole for latch.Paint and replace trim.Make son pay for repairs.I think 100$-150$ ought to cover it.It learned me.
