WHO'S BEEN DRILLING IN MY WALL?
An 18Smacked Production


You have always been pretty handy with your hands, and between talking with folks in the neighborhood who were using a radial or band saw, or when they were tuning up their automobile in the driveway, etc., and checking out the how-to books at the library, you have been able to keep your car running in tip-top condition and also make a number of home repairs and even improvements. For example, you made an extra rec room in the basement.

From his earliest ages, your son, Drew, who is now 9, has taken an interest in following your handy-man lead. So, for birthdays and holidays, you have gotten your son basic hand-tools such as a tape measure, a yardstick, a spirit level, a hammer, a nice set of screwdrivers, etc. You even invested in good quality tools so that he would be able to have use of them for his entire life. And, until now, he has always been very cooperative in doing exactly as you instructed in using his tools. Until now.

Today, you came home, and you found that Drew had busily been screwing in screws into the drywall of the unfinished basement. There were three problems with his doing this:

1. You had previously strictly informed him that all power tools were only to be used when you were in the area with him, because of the danger.

2. The screws he was using were over-sized, and were going all the way through the wallboard, and the threaded ends were showing in the wall or the rec room, next door. Luckily, he had not made contact with any paintings that were hung, or with any furniture.

3. His left sleeve is dangling loose, and is unbuttoned. You had previously emphasized loose clothing as a dangerous safety issue, but this was one.

There were two things to his credit:

A. He was wearing safety glasses, as you had always repeatedly stressed safety precautions.

B. The section of wallboard that he used for his "practice" would be rather easy to replace with some tape and paint work and the wall of the recreation room would be good as new when you were done.  

However, at 9 years-old, you are uncomfortable with Drew using your power tools without you being present, and he had broken two major rules.

What is your reaction to what Drew was doing?

Drew has earned a spanking as the scenario indicates he was clear on the rules of tool use. I do not see that it needs to be severe - a moderate session with my hand on bare bottom will suffice.

After he recovers from the spanking then he and I will make repairs to the drywall together. I will use the time to explain the right screw selection and to give him some knowledge of drywall work.

As I continue the renovations I will make sure to always include Drew and to help teach him a new skill.

I am in agreement with the previous answers: Drew is getting his bottom warmed up. Hopefully it will deter him from ever again using the power tools when being without supervision.

Well, at least while he's still a child. I use them without supervision all the time now. Wink

You got me there. Surprised

Although for some people who have got two left hands, like myself, it would be better if they were not left alone with power tools even as adults. lol!

Number 1 is enough to earn a spanking, and number 3 makes it a bit more than a light spanking.

The reason I did become handy with home repair/improvement projects is because my Dad was literally dangerous with a screwdriver. So, when our color TV stopped working, and my Dad balked at the price of getting a TV repairman to come to the house, I looked at the schematics, isolated things down to one or two circuits and pulled those tubes, tagged them with ID numbers, tagged where they came from, and we went to a tube testing machine at a drugstore. I was 12 years old then, and this was the same year I hung a chandelier in the dining room that my folks bought. I also added a dimmer switch to replace the standard wall switch. I read how to do these things in a book from the library. My Dad did the lifting/holding as I asked. I did all the mechanical work and wiring.

At age 13, I tuned up my Dad's Electra 225 when he complained about the cost the mechanics asked. Of course, in those days, a car was repairable, unlike today's vehicles that entail entire modules to repair things.

If my Dad were not so bad at trying to fix things in the house, I would never had been needed to do all the things I did, and would not have become a competent repairman for home projects. I know my limits, but I also know when I can stretch my prior experiences and try a new project I had never done before. I am quite grateful for what life handed me in a backwards way. And, even if I cannot do a job myself, I am at least able to understand what the job entails.

I sympathize to a certain extent, but yes, disobedience and using power tools without supervision calls for a spanking. I'll have talk with him, but I don't think he'll convince me to let him off.

While it is a power tool it is evidently only battery operated so there is no danger of electrocution.

As for the unbuttoned sleeve, to me that shirt looks as if it is way too big for him and I suspect of the sleeve was buttoned it would be down over his hand. Thus there seems less danger where it is.

He has though still been doing something he shouldn't so I guess he will get spanked.

He's ignored a clear safety instruction and he's getting a salutary spanking before it escalates to something really dangerous.

Doing some less pleasant chores in compensation for the repair of the wall should do. Honestly, I don't see his clothing as dangerous as some here do. Using power tools without my permission is something else, however the drill should be quite harmless.

Nontheless, we will go again through the rules, maybe underlinded with a swat or two.

Using the power tools without me present is enough. That loose shirt sleeve merely betrayed his inexperience. He disobeyed. He's getting spanked. Afterwards he can help me sort the mess out
