A Memory Man Production

Since he turned fourteen two months ago you have been having attitude problems with your son Xander and he has started to become something of a bully towards his younger siblings.

You are on holiday and (forlornly) hoping he'll improve his attitude; but he has put a dampener on the holiday.  Today he was bombing the little ones in the hotel pool.  You saw him, pulled him out and ordered him to sit and wait whilst the family finish their swim.  

He knows you packed your strap in the holiday luggage and is morosely anticipating what might happen when you get back to your room.

What WILL happen?

Can you dig it?

I'm thinking a long bare bottom spanking over my knee with my hand... take him down a few pegs

That's good, he's had a chance to anticipate it. He knows he invited it, knows you packed it, and you shouldn't disappoint him. Hotel rooms these days are reasonably soundproof, so it's just you and him and some father-son quality time. pale

I think being pulled from the pool is sufficient punishment. I can't really see the need to use a strap on a kid for pool bombings. I also think that it would be remarkable if a 14 year old weren't having attitude problems. I need to remember what it felt like when I was his age. I'm sure he has no idea why he's moody, difficult, defiant, etc. I've yet to meet anyone whose attitude improved because he was whipped; what's needed here is patience and a certain amount of detachment.



At least with those shorts the marks on his butt won't be visible so he can go back in the pool afterwards without any problems. Smile

But rather than put a damper on the entire holiday, as I assume this has occurred at the start, we'll go back to the room, he can drop his shorts and get in position over the bed and then I'll give him just one crack as a final warning. Hopefully that will be enough to get the message through.

I agree with Kat. I think that having to sit out and watch everyone else swim while anticipating what will happen when he backs to the room is sufficient punishment. I'll let him know if he doesn't straighten up, though, sitting out will become pretty uncomfortable.

David M. Katz

I would agree with Kat but if I am the kind of parent who packs the strap then his fate was determined before we left the house.

Cleverly disguised as a responsible adult.


I have to agree with Kat on this one... at least depending on how much time he had to sit out. If it was only 10 or 15 minutes, there's a better chance he's going to have a sore butt to sleep on.

I think I'll get better results by asking him how he enjoyed sitting and watching. I'll ignore the sarcasm in his answer, and point out that it would be more fun for all of us, if he'd join in as part of the family.

If he's putting a damper on the family vacation, maybe I should think back to see if I actually took any input from him, or if I just told him what was going to happen, and that he was damned well going to enjoy it.

"In the end, it's just a story. But if you ask me, it's all true."

If the "little ones" he was bombing were his siblings and not little ones from other families, I ant to know from them and Zander whether they were in any provoking him or even encouraging him to bomb them. If they were deliberately wanting to get him in trouble then the strap may end up being used on their bottoms rather than (or possibly in addition to) Zander's.

If he was being provoked, I think Ivor's solution - just one that he'll really feel - will be sufficient. If there was no reason for his behaviour other than teenage angst, he'll be desperately hoping I allow him to leap into the pool almost immediately after I've finished wielding that strap!


Its good he knows he strap is packed but I really don't want to use it on holiday. I think its time to take him off for a heart to heart. Holidays should be a happy time even for teen boys. I want him to talk about whats bugging him particularly, what he wants from his holiday and see if any of that can be accommodated and at least curb the snarks for his Mom particularly. Being nice to the little ones would be nice but not compulsory. Tolerance will do. More bullying and lousy attitude though and that strap will come out
