THE BOOK REPORT
A DMK Production

Your son, Archer, turned twelve last month.  For a birthday gift his grandparents sent him a new video game system.  Archer was playing with his new system on Saturday.

Normally that would not be an issue but you know Archer has a major book report due on Monday and you also know he is prone to procrastinate with his school assignments and so you do prompt him often. You have seen him reading the book, often at your encouragement, but he does seem like he has been on top of this assignment.

You ask Archer about his book report.  He tells you it is finished.  You ask to see it.  He says he finished it at school on Friday and already turned it in.  Otherwise you know Archer has no other homework for the weekend so you leave him alone and he continues to play.

On Monday you get an interesting email from Archer's teacher.  She says she hopes you are recovering well and says she was saddened to hear of your accident.  The teacher says normally she would accept Archer's book report late with a ten point reduction but, considering the circumstances at home, she will gladly accept it by Wednesday with no reduction.

How do you deal with this?

Archer lied to his teacher and to me. He didn't do so for any good reason other than additional screen time. He's toast.

Archer will get spanked and lose gaming privileges for a week.

Unless something happened to me that wiped out my recent memory, Arch is going to be losing that video game system for a bit, and we'll have strict rules for when he gets to play it. He's getting a thorough spanking for the lies he's been telling, along with a reminder that this is why honesty is the best policy. He's going to finish the book report tonight, and he'll apologize to his teacher and hope he can still turn it in with just a 10-point reduction.

I assume the school is leavingt the question of how Archer is discipined up to his parents. I will tell his teacher that Archer will be apologizing for his lies tomorrow and I will make no special pleading on his behalf about losing marks. It is up to her whether she will still mark it on Wednesday in the knowledge of all the facts. If the school doesn't do paddling I will. Archer is also on notice. There will be no game time till he shows me any completed homework for the rest of the semester

I will send a return email to the teacher explaining the TRUTH.  Archer can then deal with any consequences that arise from his dishonesty at school.  Short of him being tied to the rack I will not intervene at school.

When Archer gets home I will confront him with what I know and inform him that the video system is off limits for a week  and then use after that will be based on all responsibilities being taken care of.  I will then prepare Archer a nice meal.  

The menu:
Toast
Warm buns
Rump roast
Cooked goose

The book report will be done and checked by me tonight. Good luck sitting comfortably while he writes it. Twisted Evil

I think Archer could well be cursing his grandparents for sending him that game by the time I've finished with him.

Afterwards he won't be able to sit down and play with it and not just because of the paddling he's going to get from me, but also because I'm removing it for the foreseeable future.

I join the consensus. Archer will have to face the music at school, as well as lose the gaming privileges at home for a week, in addition to a spanking.

I'm packing him off to the most spartan boarding school I can find for him at the end of this school year.

Meanwhile, once both I have dealt with him and, I hope he has had a similar painful experience at school, he will be on an agreed daily reporting system between me and his teachers.

The homework folder I use for my kids started with my brother, Ben, when he was in sixth grade. Not only did he have to write down each assignment, but he had to have the teacher sign that the assignment was written correctly (or that there wasn't one), and the teacher also signed when he turned it in. That just didn't leave much room to game the system.

The casualty in this system is TRUST.

Its exceptionally sad if this fans out into other areas of family life.

A Spartan boarding school seems a bit of overkill. I think a spanking, losing video game privileges for a while and more homework supervision should take care of it.
