SLEEPY STANLEY
A DMK Production


You have an eleven year old son, Stanley.  Stanley gets spankings if needed.

Normally, Stanley does not give you any problems in the mornings with getting up and getting ready for school.  That has not been the case for the past three days as Stanley has had to be literally dragged out of bed and has been grumpy about getting ready.  This morning was even worse.  Your spouse had already left for work and you were trying to get ready yourself.  Stanley was not responding to any requests to get up.  Even after you physically removed Stanley from bed he returned to bed as soon as you left his room.  You got him out of bed again and you had to be on Stanley every step of the way and even threatened a spanking just to get him cleaned up and dressed.  Stanley was extra grumpy this morning. This put your morning routine off.  Finally all Stanley needed to do was eat some breakfast and grab some shoes and his backpack and so you felt the morning was won.  You sent Stanley to the kitchen to get a bowl of cereal while you finish with getting yourself ready.

You are now ready and look for Stanley so you can drive him to school.

You find him in the den:

Check his temperature is the quick answer. Depending on that, let him go back to bed or increase the surface temperature of his backside.

If I really have to leave for work, I'm going to take him back to bed and call him in sick. When I get home tonight, we're going to make a serious effort to find out why he's not getting enough sleep and remedy the matter.

Unless Stanley has been up extra late for some reason, I'm taking him to the doctor. I'll call in sick (twice) from the waiting room.

Sorry, but I don't see how I can leave him there in the house on his own all day if he might be sick.

If this was in UK I'd be very lucky to even get him an appointment to see a Doctor today though - unless this happened before 8.30 when the phone line opened to release the limited number of available appointments for that day. On the other hand, if it is in UK then I do have the right to take a day off if I have a sick child - admittedly that could be without pay, but it will be without comeback. So, I guess I'm staying a home too and hopefully getting one of those appointments.

Sick or not I don't think he's old enough to stay home alone the whole day. He isn't in a state to go to school so I have to stay home too or get his grandpartens or someone to whatch him.

When he slept enough we habe to see why he is in that state. I have to be sure he didn't stay up all night for playing or something. If not, then we will see a doctor.

Ditto Padraig.

Since this is a recent but recurring phenomenon as a first step I'll also be removing ALL electronic equipment from his room.

He's 11 so really can't be left at home alone all day. I'm calling him in sick with school, rearranging anything I have to do with work then checking his phone, computer logs, game consols and how warm the tv is If that gets to the bottom of why Stanley is so sleepy than Stanleys awakening will be a very rude one and a warm one for his backside. I will also take his temperature and feed him meds/take him to the Doctor as necessary. I all that ails Stanley is an addiction to gaming I will sit his sore little rump down at a desk with some schoolwork as, hopefully, suggested by his teacher

This is actually kind of interesting, because I often stayed home alone with simple cold or flu by the time I was that age. It doesn't happen much with my boys, simply because of the nature of my work, but if the only problem was he was sleepy, I don't think I'd have a huge problem with it (though I'd probably get someone to check on him, if I'm not able to get away).

This may be something else where US and UK/Europe differ or it may just be that things have changed over the years, but:

Things are terribly vague here -- I found this list
http://www.latchkey-kids.com/latchkey-kids-age-limits.htm

But since I think the lad is sick, leaving him alone is not an option!  

Since this is the third day in a row, yesterday for sure would have ruled out toys of all sorts so I'm very concerned.  He can sleep while I hold him as we wait for the doctor to see him on an emergency basis.

It's not a law thing here but my personal opinion that 11 is bit too young for a whole day. If he's a 'trained' latch-key-kid a couple of hours will probably be no problem, but a whole work day? Certainly there's no general solution since every child is different.

I was probably late 12 or 13 when I stayed alone a whole day for the first time. Looking back I can't blame my 'rents for that...

I contracted Bovine TB in my neck glands at the age of 6 and missed almost 6 months of school being nursed at home - mainly lying out in the garden if the weather was fine. I'm sure that during that time there must have been times when my mother left me alone for, perhaps, a maximum of a couple of hours while she went out to work. We did have a "daily" who came in from about 11a.m. to 3 p.m. so it could have been both morning and afternoon.

Certainly when somewhat older if ill from school from, say, measles or chickenpox the same would have happened.

Since I felt decidedly ill, there would have been no temptation on my part to get up to any mischief, I'm sure my parents would have considered me safe and secure. With my mother being a teacher, it would be rare for me to be left alone at whatever age for long periods of the day during school holidays - though it did happen for the odd day when terms didn't coincide.
