IT'S ELEMENTARY
A Late Chat Production

Your eleven year-old son, Todd, has become obsessed with all things Sherlock Holmes.  Todd fancies himself a detective and does have good investigation skills. Todd just recently had his birthday and you got him a trench coat he had been wanting so that he could look more like a detective.  Todd was also given a kitten who he named Watson.

TODD - 11

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

Todd comes home from school today and finds Watson is missing.  Your SO took Watson to the vet for his vaccinations and a check up. The vet had an emergency and the appointments are running late. Your SO forgot to tell Todd about the vet visit but assumed s/he would be home before Todd got home and would have been had it not been for the emrgency.  Todd becomes distraught over his missing kitten and assumes Watson got out and has wandered off.  Todd goes out looking for Watson.  He is sure his detective skills will help him find his kitten.

Todd has lots of freedom but he does have boundaries as to how far he can go from home.  Todd ends up out of bounds but doesn't care as he is certain he is on Watson's trail.  Maybe Todd's detective skills are not as good as he thought as he is now lost and doesn't know how to get home.  

Your SO gets back from the vet and you come in from work and the two of you find Todd is not home.  There is no note and Todd does not have a cell phone.  You call the school but everyone has left for the day and there is no answer.  Your SO heads to the school following Todd's normal route while you call to check with parents of friends.  There is no sign of Todd and you become frantic and call the police.

Meanwhile Todd has found his way on to some farm property far away from home.  Todd is scared and upset.  He cannot find Watson and he doesn't know how to get home.  Todd knocks on the farm house door and he is allowed to use a phone.  You are relieved to get the call and you get directions to the farm. You notify the police that Todd is found and an officer follows you to the farm to make sure all is well.

You collect your now crying son and thank the farmer and the police officer.  On the way home Todd explains what happened. You relieve Todd's mind and tell him what happened with Watson.

How do you deal with Todd once you get him home?

Oh, boy. They are so cute that I don't know if I'm going to have the heart to spank him. I guess that unless we have had similar problems before a scolding, a couple of warning swats and a big hug will have to do.

I think Todd has already been dealt with. Even if my SO thought he'd be back before Todd, he should have left a message JIC.

As it is, Todd has learned that his detective skills aren't quite as sharp as he thought, and he's had a real scare. Now that everyone's home, we're going to enjoy dinner. This weekend, Todd and I are climbing on our bikes, and we'll explore the neighborhood a bit.

(Todd will be getting a serious talking to about how he should have handled things, though).

I will explain to Todd that how he felt when he came in and found Watson missing was how I felt when I found him missing. Otherwise I think Jack handles it well.

Todd is getting either a cell phone and a GPS or a smart phone with GPS on board. He will be required to carry it and keep it charged!

I agree with Jack and David. Todd's had enough of a scare.

Although I'd hoped to use "Something's Afoot", as in a slipper, from the title, given the scenario, I don't think any punishment is indicated.

I like Katz's idea of comparing my son's feelings to mine. I think we have both suffered enough.

Todd, at eleven, is no longer a baby and he is obviously judged responsible enough to have his own house key.

He will hear how worried we were when he disappeared without trace and without even leaving a message letting us know he'd arrived home safely from school, also about the trouble his irresponsibility has caused us and the police.

He will have a heightened awareness of what we are telling him because he will me minus his trench coat and his bared bottom will be poised across my lap at the time.  Nothing too severe though, just enough to reinforce what his fright had already told him.

Then he can cuddle his kitten util he stops crying.

I agree with everyone, no spanks but Todd will have his ears chewed off about the scare he gave us. I think he knows he is not Sherlock Holmes now My  SO will remember about not leaving notes when Watson is being taken somewhere. Ther Will NOT be a repeat WILL there
