Lewis Gets Stuck in a Tree
An 18Smacked Production



You eight-year old son, Lewis, or Lew as he prefers to be called, loves climbing trees. In fact, he loves doing this so much that you had to define which trees are allowed for climbing and which are not. Now, you have used your bare hand on Lew's bare bottom, and for bigger issues, you have applied a small sized ping-pong paddle to his bare bottom that has been very effective to bring a very repentant boy to you.

One fine Sunday, you went outside to move the trash cans out to the curb for Monday's pickup, when you heard your son crying for you. It seems that he climbed one of the trees that you had specifically placed on the "forbidden to be climbed" list. He climbed it while you were busy inside the house. He thought  he could climb to the top and then get down before you would even notice he was not inside the house.  But, this time, he could not get down. He was stuck way up in an area where would not be able to get to them even with your extension ladder.

Now you have no way to get him down, other than calling the local fire department. You called the non-emergency number and, in about 10 minutes, you had a hook and ladder truck planted outside your house, with the ladder extended up into the canopy of the tree, as Lew was plucked out from inside the tree's branches.

The firemen extricated Lew from the tree, and he walked reluctantly to you, while you run over to him, scooping him up in your arms to hug and kiss him.

Should you pull down his pants and undies next, or do you have a better plan to help him learn his lesson to obey the rules that you established?

He has earned it, but depends on how scared he is after this experience. It may be that no further punishment is necessary.

I agree with Daniel. It's most likely that natural consequences were more effective than any spanking would be. Unless he's feeling like a celebrity, and thinks his experience was "cool", I don't see a reason for further punishment.

I’m disappoint that he only walked towards me as I think that indicates fear.

I doubt that it practical to kid-proof all the near by trees (like rat guards for a ship in at the dock) nor to remove them [HORRORS!!] so something else must be done.  

Got to get him into a climbing school program so he can have the fun he needs and craves safely.

Perhaps this is him in a few years  http://www.bedanddream.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/rock-climbing.jpg

Been there, done that. And I think some firefighters are pretty good at making impressions to kids who think beeing rescued is "cool". So after my collegues are done with him I don't think I need to reinforce that lesson...

I am hanging out in this tree but I like YLC's idea of a climbing class/group. I also like Pad's professional POV of how the rescuer would handle the situation.

Kier has it or me - it all depends on how the experience has affected Lew.

As a matter of interest would there be any charge made by the 'Fire Department' for attendance in these circumstances in the US?

Ummm... Yeah, from what it says, he deliberately plotted to disobey you and got caught. I don't think he's scared of you, so much as where that ping pong paddle might be.

Interesting question. I have read cases where bills would actually be presented for this kind of thing, but I don't think that's very common. If you mean a criminal (or even civil) charge, I don't think so.

As for myself.... I have pulled a lot of boneheaded stuff in my life, but fortunately never had anything quite this embarrassing occur. Still, it occurred because Lew deliberately disobeyed me. When we've both calmed down, we're going to his room.

"Do you see now why I told you not to climb that tree?"

"Yessir."

"What happens to little boys who can't mind?"

"They get spanked."

Now we're pulling his pants and shorts off and getting out the paddle. He's probably starting to tear up.

At this point, we're going to have a talk about safety, about minding, and about if Dad knows what he's talking about. If Lew gives the right answers, I'll probably let him get dressed, with a promise of the worst spanking of his life if he does something like this again.

I do like Y Lee's idea, if we have something like this around, or maybe we just need to get a jungle gym.

I tend to agree with Kier regarding natural consequences. Getting stuck meant he was too scared to move.

However since the circumstances of his rescue are unlikely to stay secret he has also inadvertently achieved celebrity status. The fee for this will be exacted through his bottom.

Yes, I did mean a monetary charge

I am sure young kids and pets stuck up trees go with the territory for Fire departments across the world. As for my little adventurer I'm pleased his fear of being left up there out-weighed his fear of what I might do to him when I got him back. My response depends a bit on what state he's in when he reaches terra firma. First though he and I will hug, apologise to the kind Firemen and thank them for their time and effort. Ten minute response suggest a quiet day hopefully.

I think the ping pong bat can stay in the drawer and pants stay up as natural consequences are there but we will have a somewhat punctuated discussion involving my hand along the lines of "what did I tell you and do you understand why now. If you disobey me like that again you really will be for it. Do you understand?" (repeat and rinse)
