A LEG TO STAND ON
A Squarecutter Production


This is your 6 year old son, Zack.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

He is a lively little boy who can push his limits. He sometimes gets a hand spanking which usually works pretty well when other things have failed.

A few minutes ago there was a conversation during lunch that went like this:

Mum  - "Zack, don't  be cheeky, you know I can't send your cabbage to the starving children of Africa. You can have a timeout. Go in the hall and stand against the wall 'til we say say."

Zack -  "Daaad!"

You -  "Zack, you were rude and I don't think you have a leg to stand on. Do as your Mum says."

A few minutes later you come out to see this:

When asked what he was doing Zack tells you he was against the wall but he wanted to prove he did have a leg to stand on!

Is Zack in more trouble?

I am going to try to contain my chuckle while giving him a mild swat to the butt and telling him to turn and face the wall and finish his time out.

Since I don't like cabbage either I sympathise with him. Nevertheless, I'll join the choir.

Short answer: not at all.

Long answer: Kids that age tend to be very literal. I don't know how many times I've had to stop and explain the true meaning of terms that are common use (and commonly understood) by adults.

Also, why should he know that the food can't be sent to Africa? If it can't, what relation does them starving have to do with him having to eat it?

I think at 6 we are on the borderline between knowing and therefore this being rather cheeky or childish innocence. The look in the eye tells me one thing  though. Having been sent to do corner time he wanted the last word and didn't put his nose in the wall. I will plant a couple of stingers on his behind, put his nose in the wall and he can serve another two minutes and I will try not to laugh. Oh and Jack my suggesting that a disliked vegetable be sent to feed the starving would definitely have been regarded as cheek. 

Later we can laugh about it

Stevie likes boiled cabbage and onions and can't understand what the fuss is about and all...

Tell Zack that eating his cabbage will give him awesome gas and that he can stink up the whole neighbourhood with it... surely he'll eat it then ! Razz

I'm with Katz too. I uttered (almost) the very same line to my mother when I was around 9--except the starving children then were in China instead of Africa. The next thing I knew, I was staring up at her from the floor, after she'd knocked me out of my chair LOL.

Square, I'd normally agree with you, but the dad in the scenario told him to stand 'against the wall' not with his nose to it, so he's actually obeying... In my house, it would be nose to the wall, but... Maybe he's just going through a literal phase. Don't tell him to get lost!

Stevie read a book once about a boy who grows up taking everything literally - there is some poo in it, though.

Vintage Stuff by Tom Sharpe ISBN 0 330 26982 8.

Very funny - and there's quite a bit of caning in it, too, by the way and all...
