I'M SICK OF THIS PARTY!
A Leti Production

Your niece turned sixteen and is having her sweet sixteen birthday party.  Your sister, her mother, has spared no expense and it is an elaborate affair complete with all of the frills.  There is a dance floor, games for the kids, great food and a cash bar for those old enough to drink.

Your brother is a widower and he is currently overseas on business and could not attend.  He has one son, your nephew, who is staying with you right now.  Your two sons and your nephew are all very excited about their cousin's party.

You still spank your sons when needed and you also have permission  to spank your nephew and have done so before.  You tell the boys you expect their best behavior at the party or there will be sore bottoms when they return home.  They assure you there will be no issues and, as the party progresses, all seems fine.

Your sons and nephew even paused for the photographer:



Mason - 13 (Your Son,) Lee - 12 (Your Nephew,) and Dixon - 12 (Your son)

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

Most of the adults are taking advantage of the cash bar and have drinks on their tables.  The dancing begins and most hit the dance floor.  Mason, Dixon and Lee seize an opportunity and sneak around to the various tables and finish off any alcoholic drinks the adults may have left sitting around. At first the boys mean it as a joke but realize they are enjoying themselves and so they continue.

Dixon starts getting a headache and is sick to his stomach. Mason and Lee feel fine but they are very buzzed and are almost drunk.  Dixon manages to make it into a restroom but his brother and cousin are worried about him and so they find you and tell you he is sick.  Dixon repeats to you that he has a bad headache and feels queasy.  It is then you smell the alcohol on the three boys and notice they are all on the verge of being all out drunk.  You ask the boys if they have been drinking and they confess to their scheme of finishing off several drinks from various tables.

What happens?

I'm reading my sister the riot act for being an idiot is the first thing that happened.

What exactly was expected to happen at a party like this, with booze available, mixing with minors.

However, idiocy on the part of my sister isn't sparing the boys from a switching once I'm sure they've recovered.

What happens? Nothing, except the boys are settled to sleep somewhere, with buckets ready. I don't want to have their headaches tomorrow when they have to listen to my lecture during our drive home.  I don't want to encourage them, but how do they say... like father, like son?  Embarassed 

Different culture, different attitude towards alcohol. For better or worse, I don't know.

I think it depends.

Like Jack, I'm going to read my sister the riot act. And I'm going to wonder how three different boys managed to go around the room drinking up the dregs of everyone's drinks without anyone noticing.

The boys know they weren't supposed to be doing what they were doing. Their reaction to both my telling off and to the alcohol itself will determine whether my follow-up will be more Draconian.

When I was 17, I attended a family friend's wedding out of town. The bride's brother was my age, and we were pretty good friends. It was the first time our parents allowed us to drink at a wedding. After the ceremony, we each had about a bottle of champagne before our parents cut us off. We then went back and drank the altar wine. That night, there was a fancy reception, and we each had another bottle of champagne. Mike was swinging from the chandeliers--I was just quiet, until we returned to the hotel room where I spent the rest of the night praying to the porcelain throne. I was literally sick for the next month, and have never since been, or wanted to be, drunk. I think that was a better lesson than any CP or other parental punishment ever could have been.

If the sons of the Old South are having a similar time, I'm going to stop with the lecture. If I get a smart-mouthed NBD (Katz's favorite initials), I will make it a VERY big deal, and I won't rule out the switch.

Yes, my sister was obviously not thinking too clearly when she organized the party.

My main concern is to get the boys someplace safe where they can sleep it off. We will probably need to make an early exit.

I lean more to the idea of, once the boys are recovered, using this as a teachable moment and having a long talk. I am certain their stomachs and heads have punished them far worse than I could.

I won't rule out a spanking but it will probably not happen unless I get some serious 'tude from the boys during our talk.

I suppose there are far worse things that the boys could have done.

It's a Sweet SixTEEN Party... why do we need to have alcohol? Adults can't get through the day without a drink?

That said, I'm going to tan the boys hides while whistling Dixie.... But not just yet. Safety first. I think it best if we take an early departure. The rest of the crowd doesn't need to know my boys have done stupid.

Once home we'll retire to the basement family room (no carpets and a bathroom close by, plastic covered foam mattresses) and I'll help the boys through recovery and post recovery.

They'll be pretty useless for the next day, but I have no sympathy. I think I'll get out the John Philip Sousa records and play them on loud. I'm also taking pictures to remember this by.

When all have recovered and contritely come to me with their "sorries" they'll be in for an expected lecture followed by trips over my lap to reinforce my words.... Nothing all that bad, but just enough to remind them they are still little boys to me and I hope they've learned from this.

I get them home, I detox them, I give them the lecture once while they are hungover and then again once they are able to understand (probably right before the switch like Jack says.) Then I will give my sister the riot act.

It's going to depend on just how drunk and ill they are. If they are baaaad than I reckon that should be sufficient a lesson in itself. If they are just suffering then they could all end up with a spanking when they've recovered.

I for one am NOT going to blame my sister.

She went to the trouble of organising a party that could be enjoyed by both young and old and she was entitled to expect that the adults present assumed some responsibility for the kids they brought along.

I WAS THERE, totally involved in my own socialising and allowing my brood to run wild when only a cursory level of supervision would have alerted me to what was going on.

This will not save their butts - once they've sobered up.  

But afterwards .... Who is going to spank ME.  Embarassed

I have no problem with the drinking, Pad. My eight year old has had beer in wine. What I have a problem with is that the boys know that they are ONLY allowed to drink under my direct supervision. The fact that they were being sneaky about it just proves this. My problem isn't with the alcohol, but with the violation of the law.

MM does have a good point about the adults being expected to be responsible with their drinks, but I still find myself more closely aligned with Stoney, but that might just be my Baptist upbringing sneaking out.

That's what I mean. Though the child protection laws had been tightened over the last decade, there is actually no law against underage drinking here. The law forbids "providing" alcohol to minors (beer/wine > 16; spirits > 18 years) without a parent's presence, not them drinking it.

Nobody would blame the adults for letting their drinks on the table and providing alcoholic beverages on a party is expected by most people. For sure the concept of a cash bar at a private event would cause riots...

This hits one of my soap box issues. In this specific case, since the boys snuck (sp??) the drinks, they are in trouble. How much trouble to be determined once they sober up and we have a discussion.

In the more general case, I have never understood why it is thought that preventing kids from drinking while they are at home with their parents, and then letting them drink just as they are going out on their own for the first time is a good idea. That is a recipe for disaster. Like everything else, people need to learn how to drink responsibly, and parents need to teach their kids about it. I agree with Jack that kids should be able to drink under the direct supervision of their parents. And as a parent, I let my kid get very drunk once (in his late teens), so that he would know what it feels like both when he was drunk, and the next day. I didn't force or encourage him to keep drinking, I just didn't cut him off as quickly as I had in the past. That helped him more than anything else to know when it was time to stop drinking. 12 years old is a little young to let kids get drunk, but they should have at least tasted beer and wine. That way they wouldn't feel as tempted in situations like this.

In real life, such is my love of parties where there is lots of drink being consumed, secretly I would be delighted at them having given me the perfect excuse to leave early without me being accused of being a miserable misanthrope or something similar!

We're going straight home once I've gathered some plastic glasses for them to be sick into if necessary on the journey. I'll chew them off about their stupidity and theft - "yes, boys, theft - those drinks had been paid for and you stole them! They hadn't been given to you."

Once home, they can sleep off the effects with the promise hanging over them that "Tomorrow, we'll talk about this again - and don't assume we'll just be talking!"

After breakfast, if they feel like any, we will go to another room where rthey will see laid out my punishment implements of choice. Their attitude to the experience of the previous day will determine which, if any, of those implements I will use across their backsides - my punishment of them being tempered by my delight at having been able to leave that party earlier than I'd feared I would have to remain. Whether or not their bottoms get worn out, their hands will - writing letters of apology to all the other families there!

I'm inclined to let the natural effects of this overindulgence suffice as punishment. I'm sure the other boys will be sick in due course. Another time, I'll supervise my charges more closely at a party where alcohol is served. I wouldn't have minded their having a reasonable amount of wine, beer, wine cooler or a light mixed drink; in future, I hope they'll be convinced that moderation is preferable to drunkenness and hangovers.

I think all the adults at this party could have handled this differently. If there are kids around alcohol there has to be supervision. I would be reaching for a switch if these boys knowingly went to a party and took alcohol when they knew that was alcohol AND no supervision. Ditto if they exploited a store prepared illegally to sell the stuff to them. Not the case here There must have been grown ups seeing what was happening and turning a blind eye so it may even have seemed ok on one level. At least in the UK I'm not sure any laws have been broken as they weren't being sold drink. I was just there

On the other I think they did know better . I think I will be getting them home. If awake I will be having them drink water to combat the diuretic effect of alcohol and they can all get to bed and sleep it off. In the morning, and I'm sure they won't have forgotten they will be getting a blistering lecture before the get a hand spanking each which will as mentioned emphasize that they are still small boys.

Thus like generations before them the learn about the power of alcohol and danger of boozing the hard way.

At my brother's wedding, my youngest brother was 7,  drunken  he drank some of the wine that was served when the happy couple arrived to the restaurant.
He told my mother that he was feeling sick and wanted to go home.
My mom got one of the waiters to get him an alka-seltser and he was fine and playing with the rest of the cousins 10 minutes after.

He is 31yo now, we have not stopped reminding him about it. He very seldom drinks  Very Happy

Aren't families wonderful!!! Razz 

In all seriousness this is an example of how wonderful families and their memories are... a forever connection.

Been there, done that, have the t-shirt; both as a participant and having had the kids do this.

I think the natural outcome of this is its own punishment as it sounds like Dix has drunk enough to make himself sick (as did I; {at the time NEVER AGAIN!!  Suspect }   Needless to say it didn't work out that way for me  affraid  but being that sick is its own punishment.  I think once he's feeling semi-human again we'll have quite a talk about why we don't do this sort of stuff.

I will explain to him that if there's a repeat I will blister his behind but I think the headache/upset tummy will be sufficient punishment on its own.
