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?
