One Thrown Apple Could Spoil A Sunday?



You're son Andy has been getting into trouble lately. You have spanked him in the past but only for really serious matters.


Andy
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


In the last week he skipped his homework, (teacher emailed you) he got caught with one of those video games that he's not allowed to play. (borrowed from a friend). You've warned him that the very next time he acts up he's going over your lap for a spanking with the hair brush.



Well today after Sunday School he and some other boys were caught by the minister throwing crab apples at some of the little girls. One of the boys managed to hit a 10 year old girl in the eye and there is a lot of crying.

Andy admits he did throw (one) apple but not the one that hit the little girl. Will you follow through with the spanking when you get home?

He should know better so yes he is getting a spanking. We shall see if the whole threat comes out or not.

Dang... I still haven't learned to not make threats that I later feel are unwarranted. I can see spanking Andy, but don't feel that all three offenses together are a great enough misbehavior to have earned the hairbrush.

So a spanking Andy will get, along with one whack of the hairbrush to each butt cheek as a follow through and a way of keeping my word.

After recovery, it's high time for Andy and me to have a long talk... really just a talk... about his current rash of poor behavior to see if we can stop the cycle and get him back to his better behaving self.

Hairbrush my ***! You are getting the strop at its finest.

You have what you have coming to you!!!

I sincerely hope I've impressed upon you my feelngs on this. Go forth and be good young man!!

I need to know - were Andy and company just throwing crab apples and some girls happened by or were they really throwing apples AT the girls?

All in all the other stuff is just minor and is typical boy behavior. However it is time for a sore bottom.

If they were just throwing apples around (typical boy stuff) and the accident happened then I see no need to upgrade. If they were throwing AT the girls then the brush comes out.

I'm with Stoney. I don't see we need to turn this into a Gala performance.

If I thought Andy threw lots of apples or delberately threw his apple AT a girl we'd be going to a hairbrush. For this though he is getting my hand. I do also want to know where the acting out is coming from

It seems I took a stronger 'stance' than the rest of the Bransom dads thus far and I'm feeling a tad ogreish!

I'm coming down hard because I see a trend of misbehavior and I want to nip it hard and fast. Every now and again I find it useful to go a bit harder than absolutely necessary as a reminder/reinforcer.

I think I'll go with the Stoney-Ivor approach, though, as always, I want to talk with Adam before making any decisions. Even if the boys were throwing the crab apples AT the girls, they girls may not be innocent victims. If the girls participated in the throwing or did something to provoke the throwing as retaliation, I'll consider that as mitigation in determining how much of a spanking Adam gets.

Define 'acting up'. I don't know how many times I threw crab apples, dirt clods, or what we called China berries. I never really thought of it as wrong, especially since I couldn't imagine how those things would hurt someone.

I think my reaction is going to depend on a couple of things. First, how old is Andy? Second, has he ever been in trouble for this kind of thing before?

I hate this kind of blanket threat. I think I should probably have warned him that spanking was going on the table as a first response method, rather than promising it next thing, because it gives me now wiggle room.

In the long run, I'd rather risk looking a bit weak or wishy-washy than punish him for something that doesn't really call for it. I'm going to try to explain that to him, and explain why this was wrong and not play, but he's probably getting a pass, unless he really asks for it.

I feel like I have to disagree with you here.

While some of the last incident depends on how old he actually is (see my response for my feelings there), I don't see this as anything except three totally unrelated incidents that happened to occur close together. I would actually have been a lot more tempted to spank for the homework (because, to have not done it, he would have had to lie to me about it), than the game (we've had discussions about banning games numerous times before), or something that a kid would see as harmless fun.

It all strikes me in the same way as the "three strikes and you're out" laws that numerous states have (IMO wrongly) adopted.

A friend's son is serving a life sentence in state prison here in the People's Republic of California for writing a bad check (for under 100 dollars). It was his "third strike". His first two were equally heinous. Justice? Ha.

Similarly, three minor and unrelated incidents don't really seem to call for a "nuclear option".

See, now you know why I'm feeling ogreish, fellows. Given my experiences as a kid, it kind of colors what I'm doing with even our hypothetical kids to say nothing of my real ones.

I saw/see this as a trend. You're probably right in that they aren't directly related to each other but I fear he's about to go off the rails and I want to send a message to him to rein in the behavior a bit.

I guess in R/L, we would have a conversation before I 'go nuclear' but within the constraints of the BoTD I'm presuming a bit much. I didn't see this as a 3 strike situation as much as "I need to get your attention" and there's no better way to do that than a bit of one on one time. Twisted Evil

Besides, as Jack pointed out, there's an element of dishonesty involved here if I have a homework issue. We always check work here also. On that note, I'm not too conflicted; it's just that I was the 'meanie' of the board for everything else it appears. No

That's the problem with some BOTDs - they don't work in the way I run my home, because of something like the homework. In those cases, you just have to try to put yourself into a different frame of mind to do that scenario.
