Farm Life is For You!
A John Ross Production

You live on a farm that you run for a living. Being on a farm there are many chores to be done and all your children help out, including your ten year old son John.


While John’s chores are not as hard as his older brother and sister’s, they are very important. John doesn’t feel that way and is always very eager to help do more difficult chores and often will try to do some on his own.

While you find that admirable, you have also had to spank him for neglecting his own chores or for doing something that could be dangerous for a ten year old. John’s biggest chore is the chicken’s.His job is to feed them and collect their eggs. You have told him many times to make sure the coop door is shut and locked because the road in front of your house often has semi-trucks drive down it.

Today you are checking on the tractor and you see a chicken running towards the road, you rush over and grab it then find five more running around your yard. You go back and see the door is wide open and you find John in the barn moving a hay bale, his brother’s job which he would do when he came home from a friend’s house. You ask him what happened he responds “Sorry dad, I really wanted to help and you said these had to be moved today.” What do you do?

First of all I should have moved the coop a long time ago to an area where the chicken have more space to run around savely.

But anyway, whether if it is a coop door or any other door that has to be kept shut (e.g. for fire reasons) he has to learn to watch his ways. I'm afraid, this lesson won't go over without some pain.

Why bother with the woodshed when I can do it in the barn?

Must agree with Padraig that as it is a farm there must be a more sensible place available to site the hen coop.

As I'm too dumb to have moved the coop I deserve a spanking myself for that, but I'm sure I'm going to take the far easier option of spanking John for leaving the door open.

My trouble here is the disconnect between doing what he's supposed to do and wanting to help and doing something I've said needed to be done. (My other problem is not knowing how often this has happened before, and what I've said before).

Assuming I haven't done this before, I'm going to explain that his brother will be home on time, his brother will handle it, and that he can actually hurt his muscles by trying to do too much. Then I'll ask him if he likes eggs for breakfast, or cake, or all the other things eggs are used for. I'll also point out that we make money from our extra eggs, but that none of that will happen, if the chickens run off or get killed.

I'm going to stress to him that, while it's great that he wants to help, the biggest help he can be is in doing his assigned chores, so that I can spend my time taking care of my job, not worrying about whether his is done or not.

Finally, since we've had this problem before, I think he'll be getting a spanking, but I'm also warning him that, if he wants so badly to be a big boy,the next time something like this happens, we'll go out to the barn, so he can get a taste of the strap - a big boy whupping.

I'll be more direct than Jack (who I basically agree with in this case) -- I have failed!  This is not a simple case of John failing to do his work (tasks such as the eggs or school stuff) and playing but of really wanting to do more especially of the real work not the dumb chores I've given him.

Part of the problem might even be vocabulary -- big brother has the JOB to move the bales while he has a mere CHORE to get the eggs.  Maybe even the older siblings have made comments to this effect and I have not squashed those.  Maybe he thinks that he stuck with a "girls' chore" now that she has moved up to other stuff.

John needs to learn and understand that there are many jobs/tasks/chores on the farm and they are all important.  Everyone has to do their part.  Gosh, why that simple chores of putting a closer on the coop gate been put off for years.  Who's responsible for that?  [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

It is also far from clear who left the gate open.  It seems unlikely that John was in the middle of his job and then dashed to do the hay bale move.  More questions need answers.

I need to help John understand that just because a job doesn't seem as manly or as physically demanding as some of the ones his bigger siblings are tackling, at least to a ten year old; what he does, or does not do is no less important. I hope his brothers will help in affirming that. It involve food, self sufficiency and income for the family and the spanking he gets will reflect the importance of looking after the hens and keeping them safe. Only latching the gate to the coop stood before Johnny and the more "important" tasks as he sees it. The road to manhood is about gaining trust. He will feel my belt though only as hard as I think a ten year old needs to as it appears to a recurring theme with the boy. That is after we have rounded up the chicks and salvaged the situation as far as we can.
