Heat Stroke(s?)
A Memory Man Production

You are unpacking and setting up on a family camping holiday when you discover you have left the sun block at home.  Since your fair skinned ten year son David burns very readily you and your wife decide to pause operations and wander along to the camp shop.

You leave David to continue erecting his pup tent but specifically tell him to put his t-shirt back on.


When you get back you see this:

David - 10

Is David about to have an alternative heat source applied someplace other than his bare back?

Often natural consequences can be the best teacher.

I doubt he will have a severe sunburn but some stingy pinkness may be what is needed for him to learn that his parents sometimes know what they are talking about.

Anyway, we now have sunscreen so we will slather him down and enjoy the rest of our holiday.

Ditto Katz. I can't imagine spanking for this.

I just don't see it as that big a deal. How long could we have been gone? It's technically disobedience, but a ten year old could easily have forgotten what he was told in the excitement of camping. I doubt a few minutes of sun exposure is going to result in skin cancer if we're normally diligent.

I agree, if David gets too much sun, he will be sorry!   But we should keep some sun block in the glove compartment to prevent panic trips to the store.

I'm confused.  It takes two adults to go to the store yet it is OK to leave a kid to erect a tent by himself.  And he had his T-shirt off already.  Some things are not right here.

Using the glove box as a storage place is NOT a good idea.  It is like an oven in there in the summer -- everything gets cooked.  This can destroy and/or change many chemicals and even if the sun screen elements are heat resistance the lotion part may not be.  And hot cream can BURN.

Good point Y Lee, instead keep the reserve sun block with the extra magazines in a waterproof Ziploc bag, under the front seat, because smokeless powder also needs to be protected from excessive heat!

I am going to assume he isn't referencing Time, Good Housekeeping and Reader's Digest. Razz

As someone who lived with someone who burned easily natural consequences take it's tole. In our family Sunscreen was usually with the swimming equipment so I guess we just didn't do inventory right. Although maybe my son asked to be in charge of swimming equipment and forgot to tell us we needed sunscreen. Twisted Evil

Unless the price of getting the wife to go camping was actually a 3 hour trip round the nearest shopping mall, I can't see David will have bee exposed enough to create any sunburn problems.

Besides which I'm sure he'll get up to some other mischief on this trip that will properly earn him a spanking. Razz

For information.  When I took my grandson camping once he'd helped erect his own little pup tent a few times he was INSISTING (well below the age of ten) that he be allowed to do it himself.

We will have a talk about remembering/obeying directions but it will slide as we are on holiday, THIS time. I'm sure the sun won't have scorched him yet. I feel, just as important in hot climes as sunscreen, that he should have a hat on

Depends. If I think it's forgetfulness he'll just get a brief talk on the dangers of disobedience. If I think it's deliberate he'll get his bare backside tanned too.

the only way I'd spank for this is if I'd stood there and watched him put the shirt on (which I should have done) and then he took it back off. Even then, it would be a mild spanking (probably just a few smacks) with a warning about how dangerous getting sunburned really is.

MM,

I don't doubt that an experienced camper of ten could set up his pup tent but I was thinking of more than that.  Was it already unloaded from the vehicle?  Was the area safe?  And what if he ran into problems and got entangled?  Why not a simple: "Show Mom how you can set up your own tent." and then go shopping?  That let him be independent yet supervised discreetly.

I hate 'me two' posts but since I'm here again, I think Jack is right on target.
