WILL YOU USE IT?
A DMK Production

You have two sons.  Stanley is fourteen and Stewart is eight. This morning Stanley was caught shoplifting gaming cards from a local store.  The manager turned Stanley over to you to deal with.

You lectured Stanley long and hard about stealing and dishonesty and truly read him the riot act about why stealing was wrong.  Your lecture had Stanley feeling horrible and remorseful and he was in tears when you were finished.  Of course you added to those tears when Stanley was sent to cut a switch.  Stanley ended up a very sore and sorry boy.


Stanley - 14

Whereas Stewart did not see Stanely's switching he did hear it.  However, Stewart also heard every word of your lecture to Stanley.  Stewart is now feeling very guilty and has a heavy conscience.

Yesterday, unknown to you, Stewart stole two dollars from your wallet to buy something from the ice cream truck.

Stewart disappears outside and returns with a switch.

Stewart - 8

Stewart starts crying and confesses his theft and says he is sorry.  He hands you the switch.

Do you use the switch?  How do you deal with Stewart's confession?

Y'all know my answer to this, given my detestation of stick type implements.  Short of my boys committing murder, I can't see myself swinging a switch on them!

If they don't 'get the message' with the strop, I can't see this making my point for me and I can't justify making MY child hurt that much even if they DO deserve it.  

The scenario states that I did switch Stan, so obviously there was some compelling circumstance that caused me to do this and now my 8 YEAR OLD wants this?  Thankfully I can tell Stewie that I think he's "too young/little for that big a punishment".  Then I can just spank him though I may give him either a few more swats or slightly harder than normal ones to drive home the point that 'stealing is a VERY bad thing'. Now straighten up guys; you're driving your dad to drink! No

Stewart seems  genuinely remorseful, in the best way--he's not sorry because he was caught.  He's confessed because his conscience is bothering him.  He was "getting away with it".

http://www.amazon.com/Spank-Ive-Been-Bad-Boy/dp/B005OCL3Y6  (I can't, or don't know how, to post a picture here, but this one is totally appropriate).

He seems to expect that the switch will be used.  I'm going to ask him whether he thinks he really needs it.  If so, I won't disappoint him (though he'll only get one or two licks with it, and those at nothing approaching full force).  At his age and size, the IDEA of being whacked with that thing will be as bad as the reality, even if he's barely touched.  And I think that will be more than sufficient.

I totally understand Dimitri's views on using a switch. I think, though, it's a matter of how an implement is used, not which implement it is. I would personally be way more scared of his strop even at my age than the manner in which I'd use a switch on an 8 year old.

It doesn't matter which implement . With any it could easily be ott for an 8 year old. I think with paddle, switch or strop or belt you would have to choke back on the force needed. I do think Stewart needs punishing or I send out the wrong message but first I'm going to snap that switch over my knee before sitting little Stewie ON it for a chat.  I want him to know how I am so proud of him for confessing and that because  he is so much smaller than his brother, the crime was way less serious (though still Very naughty) and that he is already very sorry that I think my hand on his bare behind will be able to deliver enough sting to deliver the message and take away those guilty feelings he has. Saying that I won't go particularly easy. I don't want him to do it again and I do want him to feel he's paid the price. He will also lose the 2 dollars from his pocket money. This is one of those , hug 'em, spank 'em and hug' em moments

Probably not. I will thank Stewart for being honest, but inform him that switches are only for big boys. I don't think he's going to feel too left out, because he's about to get a deluxe version of a regular spanking that will leave him sure he's paid for his misbehavior.

Dmitri, I totally understand how you feel, because I feel the same way about belts. It's been very hard for me to use them, because of the way my father and (especially) step-father made use of them. At least with me, it's not about the effect they have on the boy, but the effect they have on me. You might look at Steve @ 16 to see what I mean.

Jack, you nailed it sir!!!

Even though I chose to use the same strop, I do it with my father's heart as it was Alex who instilled the hatred of the switch/stick and gave us an unwanted window on the potential of the strop.

I'm not a big fan of switches, though I agree with Kier and others, it's often how the implement is used rather than the implement itself. Assuming the switch comes from a willow and is appropriately flexible, I'll agree with Kier.

First, I hope Stanley learned that stealing isn't the way to go.

As far as Stewart is concerned I think a deluxe spanking and a couple of tempered whacks with the switch will give him the right message.

Stevie would have a hard time with this one. I don't want to discourage the boy from coming to me when he has done something wrong...

Firstly, he wasn't caught stealing by a shopkeeper... he confessed that he stole a twoney from me - which I hadn't noticed - so there is a mitigating circumstance right there... this offense is on a totally different level from the one committed by the older boy... and he's only eight as well.

I think we'll have  a chat about stealing, why it's wrong, and why I don't want him to steal. We'll also discuss why his indiscretion was much less serious than that of his brother. Finally, he'll get a fairly onerous chore to repay me for the money he took.

Later on, that cute little pair of nates might just get a playful swat and all... but no switching. Smile
