I'M A LITTLE TEAPOT
A DMK Production

Your grandmother gave you her antique silver teapot as a keepsake.  Now that your grandmother has passed, the teapot holds an extreme amount of sentimental value.  You keep the teapot on a shelf in the dining room.  You have told your two sons, ten year old Eaton and seven year old Evan, about the teapot and that it is special to you.  You have told both boys that they may look at it but they are to never touch it without you present.

The boys head outside to play. It has recently been raining and is muddy and the boys want to play in the puddles and look for household containers to hold water.  You look outside to check on the boys and see:


EATON - 10 AND EVAN - 7

Yes, that is your grandmother's antique teapot in Eaton's hand.

What do you do?

I'm not sure what being anxious to go outside could have to do with playing with the tea pot. The fact that it's metal and appears okay probably has some mitigating factor, so I'm going to give them a chance to explain, before one or both of them gets some solid smacks. That, a stern warning, and probably me moving the tea pot to a less accessible place will probably be enough.

Both are old enough to appreciate sentimental value. Like Jack, I'm not so sure what being anxious about being outside has anything to do with this sort of disobedience.

They are in for more than a couple of love taps from me. It won't be a barn burner but they won't want a repeat anytime soon.

As always, I'm going to ask what they were thinking.

I can't imagine any good reason for them to be outside with a teapot which may be actually valuable, and is definitely of sentimental value. I further can't imagine any good reason for them to be outside with it after they've been specifically told they can "look but not touch unless I'm with them".

But I'll ask, and I'll listen. And failing any really convincing explanation, I'll spank.

Friends,

The statement about the boys being anxious to get outside really is misleading. It has no real bearing on the scenario and I sort of wrote it in a hurry while looking at the picture just to indicate that the boys went outside to play in the mud.

I will edit the scenario to fix it.

So, when you all read the above replies, Jack and Dimitri are not crazy; the reference did exist.

To my transatlantic eyes the teapot looks like a kettle with an insulating handle but what the heck.  If its got sentimental value and they've been told not to play it spank the little tykes until you can boil water on their behinds.Twisted Evil

First of all I should clear that place, it doesn't look anything near to where the kids should play with bare feet.

Nevertheless, at least the older one should know better. But I'm pretty much with Jack, if it was the first time I don't need to overreact.

Having had the situation with the teapot explained they should have left it alone. I think before deciding how to react I need to know which one of them suggested using it and how much they pushed the other into doing so.

David, there was no reason to change it. Boys will often use totally unrelated facts to try to distract a parent or just throw them out in an attempt to find something that will help them avoid consequences. I was referring to that, not a problem with the scenario.

What did we say about that teapot boys? Eaton is definitely in trouble when we get home. Even if it was Evan's idea it looks like he was in firm agreement.and he certainly had the ability to squash the idea. My question would mainly to see much Evan remembered or understood. I think though that they are both going to end up over my lap for this disobedience. I will be talking to them about decision making after I spank their chubby little behinds.
Surely we had a beach bucket to hand or watering can to hand. Did they not ask because they thought I would stop them going outside?

The teapot will return to its normal place where I expect the boys will be much more respectful of it.

My mother used to say a lot, "I had such nice things before I had children." If you have children, you'd better either put valuables away or resign yourself to damage, breakage and loss. It's time for one of those, "What did I tell you about Grandmother's teapot?" conversations, followed by age-appropriate spankings.

I'll go to the nearest car boot sale and pick up one identical to this for about 20pence and tell them to play with that in the future.

My grandmother had two that looked just like that the she used to heat on a ledge in front of the coal fire.

Perhaps I should get them to play this instead Smile

My mom said that more than a few times. I know I never said it, and I'm not sure if I thought it at the time, or only later, but 'who's decision was that?' comes to mind. What I really hate about that saying is that it implies kids aren't nice.

Then again, I do seem to remember Noah and Wheels getting worn out for something similar to this, now that I think about it. Embarassed

In fairness, I think I should point out that my mother didn't punish us for accidents, and unlike the parents of some kids I knew, we were allowed to sit on the furniture. Kids and even pets means you accept some inevitable damage. Every piece of furniture we have has some scratch marks on it. At the end of the day, the cats are more important to us than the furniture. That doesn't mean they don't get squirted with the water pistol if we catch them in the act though.

Going off topic now, but...

I remember histrionics from my mom when something got broke. For a little kid, that's probably worse in some ways.

I didn't really understand how to train cats when I got Black Cat and Cocoa. I had a little love seat for my first apartment, and those two tore that thing UP over their life. I finally got rid of it when they were about 11, because it was too bad even to hide in my office. By the time we got Madge and her pride, I was a bit more ready to deal with them, and things aren't too bad now.

As for nice things of my own, they stay in two areas that are supposed to be private, and that's why going into them is a spanking offense - I usually give kids a break (for first offenses), but I try to keep public areas stocked with things that aren't a big deal if they do break.

Both Eaton and Evan are in for some OTK time. They are both old enough to understand "do not touch". They have been given reasons and a specific rule. The broke the rule and will now suffer the consequences.
