Gas Lighting Aunt Gertrude
A Kat Production

Your elderly aunt Gertrude is visiting for a week. She’s a pretty sweet old girl and very fond of your 13-year-old son, Oliver. Over the first few days of the visit, Aunt Gert keeps misplacing things, which then turn up in odd places. She starts worrying that she is developing Alzheimer’s. What are you going to do now that you’ve just caught Oliver slipping Aunt Gert’s reading glasses into the refrigerator – “It’s just a joke, Dad!”

Oliver - 13

I'm going to send him to his room for a spanking and paddle his little bare bottom. Than an hour later I'm going to send him to his room for a spanking and say.. "I don't remember spanking you"

Very Happy as much as I really would like to do what our dear Skater would....I think I will now sit down with him and talk about Alzheimer's and hope he understands why his aunty is worried....I will give him a choice he... can go explain what he has been upto to his auntie (Im sure she will understand) or he can take a spanking then confess.

Honestly, it's going to depend on how he answers a few questions. Did he pick up on her doing this and do it himself? Has he been doing it the entire time? (I'd imagine it's somewhere in between.) More importantly, how upset has she seemed and does our family have a history with the disease?

Ollie is going to receive a stern lecture about why something like this isn't funny as an ongoing thing, and he may or may not receive a sore bottom to go with it.

To be clear, Oliver is responsible for all the misplaced items. He saw a public service announcement in which an elderly lady had put her keys in the refrigerator and thought it would be just hilarious to trick his great aunt. She's been very worried because she too has seen the PSA.

I need to decide whether this was done with evil intent or was indeed a childish joke born of ignorance, the sort of thing that kids get up to teasing each other.  I suspect from the scenario it is the latter; in which case I will sit him down for a thorough briefing on Alzheimers and its consequences.  He can then confess and apologise to reassure his aunt. - No punishment.

If its the former I rather like Skater's idea. Twisted Evil

This kind of 'joke' is insidiously harmful. Gaslighting like this causes the sufferer to doubt their own perceptions and the stability of their own mind. For someone who is already in a vulnerable position such as the elderly, it is one of the most awful things that someone can do.
Oliver is going to learn that somewhere between the start of his most severe caning and his sincere apology to his victim.

I do like Skater' solution, although I'm a bit worried I might forget to deliver he second spanking...... Smile

Seriously though, I'm with those who believe that Oliver doesn't really understand the consequences of the problem that Auntie thinks she may have. So that needs to be explained and after I've done so I'm hoping he will volunteer to go to her and apologise. If he does that will be the end of the matter but if he doesn't then a sore bottom will ensue.

Knowing that Ollie was responsible for all of it makes it an easier decision to me. If Aunt Gertie was obviously worried and/or upset, and he continued to do it, he'll be getting spanked - not because he did or did not know what Alzheimer's was, but because he was conintuing a 'joke' that was upsetting someone, which he knows is the definition of bullying, even if it was his elderly aunt, and not a classmate or little kid.

I will talk to Ollie about Alzheimers and how much more of a live issue it becomes to even the sharpest minded among of elderly relatives. It is not quite the innocent joke Ollie thought it was. Him apologising and explaining what he was doing will do more to set Aunties mind at rest than anything. If the attitude is right their will be no punishment

Ps I'm always losing my glasses and have no such excuse!

I'll leave Ollie to the rest of you guys while I sit down with Aunt Gertie and explain that she's exactly like just about every other seventy something on the planet, and it doesn't have to mean she's getting Alzheimer's, just getting forgetful.  If she goes upstairs and then forgets what she's gone up for - join the club.  I have a ladyfriend who is a pretty sharp cookie but she always has a pen on her so she can write things down, and her left hand and wrist are usually covered in ink.  I don't bother with that.  I just go downstairs again and start over. The trouble is, the older we get the more stuff clutters up what's left of our brain, which hasn't got a delete button.
