Consequences: Natural or Otherwise?
An 18Smacked Production



Chuck - 12
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

You live in a mountainous region, and your 12 year-old son, Chuck, loves mountain biking. This is okay with you, but he is required to wear his helmet, elbow and knee pads when engaging in this activity, or else risk having a bare-bottom spanking with your hand, and, if necessary, a ping-pong paddle.

While driving home one day, you were alerted to stop by Chuck's friend, Jack. It seems that Chuck had been biking, when he'd "wiped out" and was pretty badly scraped up. It was not so serious that he would require the hospital, but there were a number of scrapes and cuts that required bandaging. While driving him home so you can tend to his injuries, you realize that he is missing his helmet and pads. You ask about their whereabouts and he looks at the floor of the van and says, "They are at home." You say, "I am sorry to hear that news."


Should you simply leave this with "logical and natural consequences," or will you be following matters up with a session over your lap?

I’m in favor of a teaching moment rather than more pain.

It’s the perfect opportunity to discussion risks and minimization of consequences.

"Do you see now why you're supposed to wear them?"

If he's smart, he'll just say 'yes, sir', and we'll both let it go at that.

I agree with everyone else. Natural consequences are more than sufficient

I agree with Y and the rest.

Agreed. The blatant rulebreaking deserves a spanking, but since he already got injured in an accident punishing him now would be overkill. The natural consequence should make the point, with just a gentle reminder from me.

Chuck is only twelve, he is injured and distressed and probably shocked.  He is in need of reassurance.  I'll give him that and later, as I dress his wounds, I'll throw in a remark that I'm relieved he didn't go head first into a tree without his helmet.

That will end the matter.  "I told you so" in whatever shape or form never does any good.

Later as we check over his injured bike together I'll point out that while mountain biking is a hazardous sport the bike is only a pieces of metal and rubber that can always be repaired or replaced and extract a promise from him to always wear his safety equipment as the professionals do.

Good old Cappy wouldn't have cut the kid any slack because he got injured. Razz We miss the variety offered by some of our members who are no longer around.

Stevie hopes he won't upset anyone by this, but...

I certainly would not spank for this - since he's twelve spanking is on the table in Canada - but I don't think he should get off Scot free, either.

The bike is going to be locked up for a couple of days in the garage and he can work on a list of chores around the house instead...

If the list done reasonably well without too much whining, I might even augment his allowance as compensation.

Very reluctantly, I have to agree with the consensus. Maybe I'll tell him that if it ever happens again I'm going to take him to the barber for a 'short back and sides'. That should do the trick.

K Club.  The natural consequences are a good substitute for the deserved spanking.

When I had wipeouts I could expect a very painful consequence when I got home.  Dad really thought Tincture of Iodine was the ideal antiseptic and the reason it was so painful was that it was killing all those bad bacteria.  If it didn't hurt me then it must not be hurting the bacteria either.  That served as a pretty good reason for me to keep my skin intact.

Regardless of the soundness of his reasoning, I never got an infection so I guess he was right about the effectiveness.
