You just told your three boys to sit on the couch for a talk.
Kevin - 8, Stan - 10, Dylan -7
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

You require your boys to do minor chores around the house. When they get three strikes, they get a sore bottom - usually just enough smacks for them to be uncomfortable, unless it's a repeat problem. As of yesterday, all three boys had two strikes.

When it was time for all chores to be finished, so you could check them, no one had done the small trash cans that were their chores. You check the chart, and it was Kevin's day to do it. However, Kevin says that he hates doing the trash, so he and Stan had traded. Stan says Dylan owes him a favor, so he told him to do it. Dylan says he's already paid the favor back, and besides, Kevin still owes him a dollar.

That's their stories, and they're sticking to 'em - what are you sticking to?

A few quick swats all around and then the original owner of the chore will take out the trash. In the future I will approve all trade offs.

Pants down Kevin.  It's your responsibility.  If your trading partners let you down then that's your problem

I don't think Dylan accepted the transaction and I don't think it right a trade between the other two should land in his lap or that Stan as the oldest can think of foisting this on him so for me Dylan  is in the clear. I think this is between Stan and Kevin and both of those are going over my knee. From now Chores will only be traded via me and if there is a dispute over debts I expect them also to go throught and not use it as an excuse to avoid doing chores

Thanks Ivor.

 Its a classic illustration of the burden of responsibility and the ultimate futility of trying to pass the blame for failure.

Now they'll all have learned the meaning of  "The Buck Stops Here" - a vital life lesson.

This has actually been a real life problem for me, though what happened with me was less complicated.

In this case, while I'm tempted to smack Stan and Kevin both, I think I'm going to explain future rules to them - if I don't approve a trade and make it on the chart, then it wasn't made, and if you're responsible for getting a chore done, then you're responsible for it not getting done, even if someone else said they'd do it. Then Stan can go do the trash, since he admitted to the trade.

But smacks for them both is sure tempting. Twisted Evil

I would like to dump the trash over their heads. Then place the cans over their heads. But that might seem cruel... Might.

It was Kevin's job to put out the trash, it wasn't done, and he already has three strikes.

He's getting a good bare bottom spanking and all..
