Counsel child and prosecute parents.

I like Darren W.'s idea of making them visit the victims as well, except I think some arsonists actually enjoy the pain and suffering of the victims of their fires.

Prosecute the company who build the matches.
And the state of California for it's incomplete educational system :)
