You have three sons who attend a private school. The school believes it's the parents place to apply corporal punishment when it's needed. To that end, the school will assign detention or ISS as the principal feels appropriate and inform the parents. The parents have the choice of accepting that punishment, or coming in to apply an appropriate corporal consequence.

Today, you got a call to say that your oldest son, Sam, is in the office. He's been fighting. There was some justification, but it was not self defense, so they feel three days of ISS is the non-corporal alternative.

When you arrive at school, Sam is waiting for you. He explains that, yes, he hit a boy who was a year younger than him. That boy was talking to your younger sons, Max and Cody
Cody - 7, Sam - 12, Max - 9

.... and was telling them that there's no such thing as Santa Claus.

The school considers this a deluxe issue. What do you consider it?

Sam over reacted. I think he meant well but let "good intentions" go too far. We will have a long talk about what went wrong then I will give him enough of a spanking to reinforce the issue. I will report to the school that he has been spanked and let him get back in class.

This would not occur in my family because I would never lie to my children about Santa Claus.

Santa Claus is a pernicious lie and I'd never lie like that to a child of mine and all... Surprised

Isn't 9 a tad old to still believe in Santa Claus?

But perhaps Max & Cody share a bedroom and he only believes for the sake of his younger brother.

Still, Sam did over react so I think a visit from Spanky Santa is called for in order to clear his slate.

No, not here, at least.

With my kids, there's been some variation, but I find that it generally lasts until 5th grade - 10 or 11. Some boys have questions before that, and some may just be playing along with Dad. On the other hand, some of my kids seem a bit confused by my explanation, and take it as confirmation that there Dad says there really is a Santa Claus.

What's my explanation?

Jack Wells, from The Boy Who Hated Santa Claus wrote:“Do you know what Santa Claus is, Liam?”

“You are,” the boy answered, confused by the question.

“No. I'm WHO Santa Claus is. WHAT Santa Claus is is something very different.”

“You see, Liam, Santa Claus doesn't just exist one day of the year, and he doesn't just decide which children have been naughty or nice so he can give them presents. Santa Claus is more than just a person. Santa Claus is there on Christmas when parents give gifts to their children, or when little boys save their money to give a special truck to their father, but he's also there in the spring, when a teacher lets a boy take home a poster he really liked, or when a boy gives half his lunch to someone who dropped theirs.”

“Santa Claus is the spirit of giving, my young friend. He's there whenever someone gives something, not because of what they hope to get back, but just because of the love and joy they get from sharing.”

Or, another way to put it -

Agreed ............. BUT

I suspect that Sam didn't primarily just go in with his fists  but resorted to them after a hostile response.  I doubt I would have spanked for this but I'll tell him him that whether or not he is punished is out of my hands, only the style of punishment is up to me.  Then, providing the live spanking is not being witnessed, he can drop 'em.

Sam certainly overreacted but I think the school has too. I will try to talk them down from that level a bitI will paddle Sam but will stop short of the full treatment
