PYROMANIA BY PROXY?
An Adric Production

Your twelve year-old son, Adam, has a bad habit - he likes to play with fire.  A week ago he lit a piece of string in the house and filled his room with smoke.  You spanked him then for playing with fire after you had told him never to light any fires without your permission.

ADAM - 12

Now you and your neighbor, Mr. Wilson, have just returned from a vacant lot where you and he put out a grass fire started by Adam and Mr. Wilson's twelve year-old son Steve.  Mr. Wilson has already hauled Steve off to be spanked.

STEVE - 12

You are ready to give Adam a spanking as soon as you calm down and Adam explains what happened.  Here's Adam's explanation:

"I just wanted to fill up a light plastic laundry bag with gas and release it to see how high up it would go.  Steve and I sealed the openings with an iron and then filled it with gas from the kitchen stove.  We took it out to the field to let it go but then Steve brought out a bottle rocket and said we could tie it to the neck of the bag and light the fuse to see if the bottle rocket would burn through the bag and light the gas.  He lit the bottle rocket and we let it go.  The bag went way up in the sky and then the bottle rocket set it on fire and made a big fireball.  Some of the bag must have been burning and it came down and landed in the grass.  I never touched the bottle rocket or the match, and I never intended to start a fire.  It was all Steve's fault. Please don't spank me for something that Steve did."

Now you have calmed down and you're trying to decide what to do about Adam.  Mr. Wilson thinks it was a group project and both Adam and Steve worked on it together and were equally responsible for the fire.  Adam says the fire part was all Steve's idea and he was just there when it happened.

What are you going to do?

I agree with Mr. Wilson - it was a group project. Adam might not have actually lit any fires but he can't tell me he didn't know this was a very bad idea.

I will now be lighting a fire of my own - on Adam's bare bottom.

This is how I feel about it, and I'm going to have this discussion with Adam.

If he had never done anything like this before, I'd take his word on it without a problem. It has been a problem before, and he has been spanked before, so he should have known this was a bad idea and that he should have gotten out of the area.

What it comes down to is, how well do I know Mr. Wilson and Steve? Do I have any reason to trust them or Adam or to distrust Adam? Has Adam lied to me in the past to get out of trouble.

I feel like an upgraded spanking is merited here, but I don't want to spank a boy if I'm not sure he earned it. His reaction through this discussion will decide the issue for me.

Stevie is terribly concerned that Adam may have a problem... in any case he's very lucky that he's not spending the night in custody with charges pending under the Young Offender's Act.

We're going to be getting professional counselling and all...

There won't be a punishment right now... but we are going to have a very serious discussion tohight.

Stevie.

I do agree this was a group effort, and I think my response will be along the lines of what Jack says; I need to evaluate my prior trustworthiness of what Adam has told me, and how well I know Mr. Wilson and Steve. Are their reports reliable, or is there some sort of prior agenda that either one of them may have?

While Adam’s string lighting was a “prior experience” with fire-lighting, I won’t necessarily jump to the conclusion that professional help is needed at this point. I think a firm spanking will drive home the point that Adam’s actions were inappropriate at best, and I will keep a close eye out to make sure that there is not true pyromania problem.

I also know that local fire departments frequently sponsor very effective groups for kids who are experimenting with fire-lighting. I will give them a call, and see if they have one of those groups forming in my area, and if so, get my son into that group.

Adam should know that NOTHING like igniting a balloon with a bottle rocket EVER goes as planned!! It was Adam's plain duty to warn his friend that something WOULD GO WRONG, or at least, prevent him from trying it!!!

Adam gets spanked extra hard!!

So Adam thinks filling a bag with natural gas was a swell idea? I'm with those who see this as a joint enterprise in stupidity.

Adric,

I think this would make a great MMSA story. Hint, hint.

I agree with Jack, Kat, and David (and pretty much everyone else). Not sure we're at the point of "professional counseling", but Adam is not an innocent bystander in this episode.

Unless has a sub 70 IQ, he is no innocent in this. If he didn't like what was being done, he should have tried to stop his friend or, if he couldn't do that, walked away from the situation before its conclusion.

Worthy of a switching, me thinks!

Thanks for the "hint" Dave.

Forbidding Adam from playing with fire is tricky business. He has a fascination with it and he needs to work it out.

We need to set up some supervised play time, with safety equipment which will emphasize the dangers, so that he can get over this. It really would be great if the local fire department had some program where kids could play firefighter since they have the capability of real fires which are scary.

Excellent point, YLee. I grew up with wine on Friday nights, and for religious holidays such as Passover. (I am Jewish.) And, whenever my Dad made a drink for company, I also got one, from when I was age 6 or seven on up.

In college, 3.2 beer was sold to 18 year-olds in Ohio. It was astounding to me how many kids drank that stuff and were so excited to get it. I never even bothered. I knew what alcohol could do to me, and I chose to ignore the beer. Later, at age 21 and on, I am just barely a social drinker of alcohol. Likewise for my brother.
