Your spouse is a stay-at-home parent. After months of frustration from warning your two kids (Royce and Anthony, ages 7 and 9) to pick up their toys, the spouse came up with an idea. Any toys collected and put away by an adult go into a locker, which is kept locked. To get a toy back, Royce and Ant must buy it back out of their pocket money or by doing extra chores. (The chores must all be completed before the toy is returned.) The kids hate this system, but it has encouraged them to be much more conscientious about putting toys away.

Tonight when you get home from work, Ant tells you that your spouse has his new Nintendo DS in the Buy Back Box. He won’t have enough money to buy it back for a whole week; nor will he be able to do sufficient chores to earn it back for about a week. He pleads with you, “Can’t you just give me a spanking instead?”

Will Ant have to wait to get the Nintendo DS back or will you agree to his request?

I'm not interfering with my spouse's action. Of course, he may winge so much to my spouse that she will either give in or ask me to spank him in stead - or may be on top of the Nintendo remaining in safe custody.

I'm going to have a problem with this, simply because a DS is not a toy, very similar to the cell phone that my spouse leaves lying around while wondering the house. I also doubt that just left the DS lying out in the floor where it needed to be picked up.

My partner has made the call, and I won't contradict, but we are going to have a talk - I think some one is going a bit overboard on this.

A week is too long for a 9 year old.  I also agree with Jack's point as to just how was the DS found to be in violation.  I need to have a chat with my spouse.  I think a 24 hour impoundment is appropriate.

I agree with Jack and DMK. But I also agree with Pi--I'm not getting in the middle of my spouse and Ant in a rules violation after the fact.

I agree with Kier. My spouse and I need to talk this plan out to make sure we aren't going overboard, but I will not push for a change on the fly. That will have to come from my spouse or not at all for this time.

I understand my spouses motives but I wonder if she is treating it more like pawn shops operate in that the more expensive the toy the more penance has to be paid to get it back. This does on the whole seems to be going overboard. After all is it more irksome to trip on a DS than a matchbox car?
The aim has to be logical consequences. Tidy up or no play and may be spanking if toys are left in dangerous places. In the case of electronic toys a specific length of time for it to be off limits. We clearly need to think this one through but I wont be obliging my son by spanking as I don't want him to see spanking as a shortcut to what he wants

What we don't know is for how long toys are usually confiscated? If it is usually a week then there isn't much of an argument I can raise with my spouse. But if it isn't then she does appear to have gone overboard and the question is, why? Was the Nintedo left somewhere dangerous or where it could easily be trod on and broken?

I think I need to find out some more facts from my spouse, but while I may argue Ant's case if I feel he is being unduly harshly treated, the final decision has to be hers.

Do not come between a nazgul and his prey. Smile

I'll tell Ant, "Go ask your other daddy if that's all right. If he agrees, then you can take the spanking instead of buying back the Nintendo." There is no way I'm overruling my spouse. I can already hear the bitter recriminations:  "I'm the one who has to do all the discipline around here, so don't you dare make me out to be the bad guy!"

As to questions about the scenario:

1) There is no time limit on how long toys remain in the box. They simply stay there until the owner has the money to buy them back.

2) Prices for buying back are set based on the toys' value, with a maximum price set based on the boys' pocket money. The maximum is the equivalent of 1-1/2 weeks worth of pocket money. Ant's Nintendo DS is priced at the maximum.

3) The spouse tells you in acid tones after you ask about exactly where the Nintendo was picked up, "Pip (the dog) rooted it out from the sofa cushions -- and I don't appreciate you cross examining me like I did something wrong. Why do you always take the kids' side?" Razz Ant had apparently been playing with it on the sofa, set it down between the cushions and gone off.

Now I know that, it's obviously the dog's fault!

The only trouble is that when you try to 'spank' Pip, he goes crazy with joy.

In that case, I'm calling Sir Em's divorce attorney.

Hmmmmm

I think Royce is the one that needs the spanking.... Ant was not sharing. So Royce took Ant's Nintendo and hid them in between the sofa cushions to get Ant into trouble and lose his DS.

On second thought, nevermind, l'll spank them both. And play with the DS myself.
