You and your family are close friends with the Hogans.

The Hogans home school their younger sons, 8 year old David and 11 year old Ike, and their daughter, while their older two boys (still at home) go to a private, Christian school.

Recently, Mrs. Hogan had some health problems. She was hospitalized while they were trying to diagnose the problem and find it's cause. You ended up with the boys staying with you for a few days. The older boys went to school with your sons who attend the same private academy, but you had to watch the younger ones during the day.

The first day wasn't much of a problem. Despite the fact that you own your own business, you had to go in to work. The boys spent some time in your office, quietly catching up on some assignments, then having free time. The problems came on the second day. You were trying to work back and forth with the boys, answering questions on their assignments, but one, and sometimes both boys, weren't willing to sit down and concentrate. It seemed that, as soon as you turned your back, they were back to playing.

You have permission to spank the boys, and you've done it before. They know how you spank, and their parents spank them for this kind of behavior. What do you do now?

I'm going to give them a 10 minute recess. Mom's in the hospital, and they have good reason to be stressed. After they burn off some energy, I'm going to tell them they've just used up their last chance. Any further misbehavior is going to result in a sore bottom.

I agree with Kier, and I'll add that they are not in the best environment for concentrating on assignments.

Yes, I also think there could be a number of good reasons for them struggling to concentrate.

Home schooling may be fine if the person doing it has that as their sole or primary task; it becomes a somewhat different proposition when it is their secondary or even tertiary one.

Some leeway is called for imo.

I agree with the rest but I might just ask them what would have happened if they messed around like this during study time for their folks and leave the question hanging... Last chance boys

I think I sit them down to think and tell them that they are one strike away from sore bottoms.

Ivor's almost nailed it.

Playing so much... It looks to me like they are not subdued with grief. I'll give them a last warning, explaining that if they don't behave I will be warming rather than warning.
