Used 500D might be an option.

My son was on a bridge camera when I was on a 40D

Indeed, a good idea. My little brother (a teen) has an old XT he uses... He hasn't killed it yet... Though he did manage to kill my 70-200!  :'(

How'd your parents take it when you killed him?

$149 brand new then you dont need to worry about second hand problems. these are ok, my mum has one and its been used in the ocean swimming pools etc just run it under a tap when done to clear any salt water from it and dry it off

It is only $129 from Amazon:  http://www.amazon.com/Olympus-TG-310-Digital-Camera-Optical/dp/B004HO59Y2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1325692884&sr=8-1

$129 for all that camera is a pretty good deal, I dont think you will get much more kid proof than that :D
