Out of Retirement?

A Kat Production

You have been retired for several years after a career spent as schoolmaster and eventually headmaster at several small schools in the UK. Your son Richard is pursuing a career as an academic; he holds a professorship at a university in the US. He is married to an American and has a son of his own, eleven-year-old Nicholas. Richard invited you to live with him and his family in the US after the death of your wife last year. You agreed, as you have been rather lonely and would like to get to know your grandson better.

Nicke 11
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
You quickly settle in, and your relationship with Nick has developed into a firm friendship. Despite the happy domestic situation, you’ve struggled to find ways to fill your days. When a teacher at Nick’s school resigns after Christmas, Richard recommends you to the principal as a highly qualified replacement. The principal offers you the job, and you agree to take it, at least until the end of the year. You teach English to the 5th-8th grades. You have no difficulty with your classes and soon establish yourself as a popular and effective teacher. Whenever a pupil whines about your imposing a detention, you tell him to count himself lucky you can’t use your slipper or cane on him. With the bravado of kids who have never felt the sting of either implement, the pupils always protest they wish you could just whack them and get it over with.
Nick is one of your pupils. It isn’t long before your high-spirited grandson finds himself in trouble. You assign him a detention, which is a fair punishment for his minor mischief. (Decide for yourself what he has done, as I don’t want the behavior to become a distraction.) Nick approaches you that evening, saying,

“Gramps, couldn’t you just… you know… whack me now instead of giving me detention?”

Nick is the only kid scheduled for detention tomorrow, so no one will know if he doesn’t attend it, as all teachers handle their own detentions. Will your slipper or cane come out of retirement? And if they do, what punishment do you consider equivalent to a 45-minute detention? (There is no issue with your son or daughter-in-law, who have given you authority to spank Nick.)

What happens at school is dealt with at school, by the school's rules.

Tempting as it would be to just whack Nicke, he'll serve his 45 minutes detention; otherwise, he's going to feel he is entitled to special treatment as the teacher's kid (or grandkid).

If I were going to whack him, I'd think 3 with a slipper would be about right for a 45 minutes detention. But Nicke is going to have to misbehave outside of school to find out if Gramps is any good at giving spankings.

Much as it pains me in this instance, I must agree with Doc on this. It would be so much easier to 'get it over with' but my grandson can't be the recipient of special treatment.

His detention stands. If his dad is like me however, he can turn punishment over to me for the at home 'reinforcement'! cheers

Well of COURSE he has to serve the detention, but can't I whack him anyway for impudence?

Whack him for the fun of it. Nick wants to learn and have new experiences and you are a teacher after all.

Sorry, what happens at school stays at school. You have to take the detention.

The only way I could agree to this is if Nicks behaviour/misdemeanour and the detention imposed are not public knowledge with his classmates. Otherwise it would be unfair for young Nick to be seen as a special case as surely, Nick at 11, must realise.

The highlighted section nails it for me

No.

Nick needs to accept me as his teacher in this case, so he's going to be treated like a pupil. That's not even considering the fact that the other kids would find out (I trust Nick, but what 11-year old (or adult) wouldn't eventually say something like, 'oh yes it does', when some kid makes a comment about getting it over with?

While I don't have much experience with the English implements, I'd think one day detention (and a short detention at that) would be equal to one or maybe two swats with the paddle, so I'd say two or three with the slipper.

The only way I can offer CP to Nicke instead of detention, is if I am willing to offer the same deal to every other student who may be in a similar situation in the future!

Like the others said, he's serving his detention. Now if he acts up outside of school... Twisted Evil
