BUT, HE'S READING
A DMK Production



Your nine-year old son, Carter, is an avid reader.  In fact, his nick-name at school is "Bookworm."  You like it that Carter enjoys reading and want to encourage his interest in reading.

Carter is subject to spanking and you will spank Carter for not doing his chores.  He has simple and age-appropriate chores but Carter is prone to try to stall.

Today, a Saturday, Carter is supposed to bring his dirty laundry to the laundry room so it can be included with the family laundry.  You are ready to start sorting and loading the machines and note Carter's laundry is missing. You go to ask him to bring his laundry and find him stretched out on the sofa and reading.

"Carter, please bring your laundry to the laundry room.  I need to get the machines started."

"Okay, but I'm reading, may I finish this book?  I'm almost done."

You do see he is almost finished with his book and so you agree to the delay.

Fifteen minutes pass and you still don't have Carter's laundry.

You go to check on Carter.  You see he has now started a new book.

How do you encourage your son to do his chore without discouraging him from reading?

"Carter, did you ask if you could finish your last book before bringing your laundry to the utility room?"

Yes, he'll answer nervously.

"Why didn't you do it?"

No telling what a 9-year old will say here.

"What happens to boys who don't keep their word?"

I'll bare his bottom, warm it up enough to get some tears flowing, then have him do the chore. I'll sort his laundry and get the machine started, then sit down and read with him for a while (after he dresses and washes up).

This is an interesting situation in that it is a portrait of me when I was that age. I used to even use a flashlight to continue reading at 11 PM and later, hiding under the blanket to read my book.

Now, it has been stated that Carted can be spanked for not doing his chores, but what is not made clear is how long it has been since this has actually happened, and what the punishment was at the time. If it has been, say, a half a year or more since he has been spanked for not doing his chores, I would be inclined to give him a strong telling off for now and maybe an additional chore or an early bedtime and leave it there.

I think I would get Carter to put down the book, and I would get his full attention while we talk. I would discuss how he blew off my request fifteen minutes ago, and that when I ask him to do something as simple as what I did ask, I expect it to be done. And, so, I think we need to come to an understanding and agreement about what will have to happen in future situations where he has been requested to do something for me.

If, on the other hand, it has been two months or less since this has happened, then I would be more inclined to spank Carter. It would not be a particularly harsh spanking, however, simply enough to give the message that I am serious about his need to do the things he’s been asked to do.

I'm really on the fence between Jack's answer and 18Smacked, but I think I will go with Jack's since Carter told me he would do that as soon as he finished that book, and he didn't do it so he broke his word in addition to not doing the chore. It won't be a particularly severe spanking, just enough to really get his attention (i.e. make him cry a little). I'll make sure he understands that he did two things wrong, not doing the chore and telling me he would do it but failing to do so.

Not only didn't he do his chore he also didn't keep his promise. Can't see that the two together don't earn a spanking.

And basically that won't be because of him reading but because he broke his promise.

I simply hold his book hostage until he has completed the chore. I doubt in his mind, this is breaking a promise. I know how these things go. You tell yourself you'll just have a peek into the new book and three hours later, someone is yelling at you about something you didn't do.

I'm going to tickle the soles of his feet; that will stop him reading and get him moving!

Take book from his hand, give him a couple of quick pops on the rear and tell him "clothes" then set him to work. He can get back to his book when he's done. For now its mine

Yep. What he said.

Never noticed the BOTD section before. Just clicked on this one the other day when it was in the side panel. I meant to reply, but was distracted.

Real life answer (assuming necessarily that we are in a situation where spankings happen):

The key lies in in this: You do see he is almost finished with his book and so you agree to the delay. I cannot help feeling that is a mistake. The boy knew he was supposed to be sorting his clothes out and that had to be his priority. You have allowed him to set his own priorities. He can hardly be blamed if he thinks that what worked once will work twice. Since you have confused things, spanking (or any punishment) is inappropriate. Instead of agreeing a delay the response should have been along the lines: "You've had all morning to sort your clothes out. I need to get on and do the washing. Sort your clothes out now. Your book can wait." Having taken your eye off the ball, the way forward is to say: "I thought we had an agreement. Sort your clothes out right now or you're getting the spanking you should have had earlier." You send the message that he got away with something, but cannot bank on getting away with the same thing again. Later, you can ask: "So what is your latest book about?"

Plagosus story response:

No need to spell that out, I think.

Oh, but there's need! People tend to take these BOTD too seriously for my taste sometimes.

I like your real world answer, though. Spanking seems overkill for mildly annoying behavior. Direct disobedience would be a different matter. "You can read a bit more" getting extended too much does not really seem direct disobedience to me.

I may just write the story. I have already written The Bibliophile*, so watch out for The Bookworm.

Thanks for sharing

You know, looking back at this now, I realized something that I missed the first time... I would be a lot more lenient if the first book was continued in the second. If the separate isn't related to the first, he's more likely to be in trouble. But making him quit after a cliffhanger ending? That's evil!
