I really think it needs some recordings for "whomever" is in the woodshed of things that would really make them crazy. That is, classical music who really, really loves head-banger kinds of stuff, etc. Poetry readings would come under the same heading. I'm particularly happy with William Cullen Bryant's Thanaptopsis. It's especially good to have the "victim," I mean student, memorize. One can never get too much culture.

IMO The Raven is soooo overdone.

Hey, Miss Dove, who's been your most frequent "visitor"? Just curious---you might want to ask him (and we know the chances of it being a HIM are about 90%) what he'd prefer..........:)

Don't forget a giant chalkboard and enough chalk to write, "I will not..." a zillion times, and a dunce cap. There has to be something to do while waiting for one's turn.

unfortunately, I think that the miscreants' major problem is that they're too intelligent for their own good and it gets them into trouble.....and as for the chalkboard they will just find a computer program to do it for them.......the worst punishment would be to send them there with no computer and to stare at the cracks on the wall (wood in this case) all day.......happened to my son when he was 15.........wasn't doing his homework....they chased him down put him in room 13 and gave him 2 bathroom and a lunch break and if he got up he had another day of room 13. Guess what? My son who always learns the hard way got up and he spent another day in there........he said that he memorized every crevice and crannies on those 4 bare walls. Never had a problem turning in homework after that............ :)

I think Dove needs to add hard labor to the mix. Do you need a new roof or the house painted? If not maybe they can dig large holes fill them back up and then start over.

what's wrong with a hot tub

And don't put that chandelier right over the tub, either

My naughty son Nick decided homework was a waste of time in 2nd grade since he always aced all his tests. His teacher thought otherwise and made him write a looonnng apology letter to me every single day he didn't turn in homework. Stuff like "I am heartily sorry for disappointing you again" and "I sincerely apologize for failing in my duties once again". It took half the school year but he finally started doing his homework. This same son was caught shooting spit wads on the bathroom ceiling. There was quite a mound up there. The principal had a method for curbing this. She made the offender make, glue down, and number 100 spit wads on paper and turn them in to her. She said by the time they made 100 spit wads, they were usually cured. Sadly, my Nick turned it into an art project and glued them all onto a large posterboard. He used full-color, illuminated numbers and decorated the entire board with flowers and glitter and attached a card that said "A Gift For You"!

kitchenelf, um, I might be going out on a limb here but, isn't the woodshed supposed to be for punishment?!? How is a hot tub punishment, unless you are the one who has to clean and sanitize it?

That's a great idea, Dawn. We could make them hand out towels, fetch drinks, and clean the hot tub for those of us at DC who know how to behave!

Well, yeah. The punishment isn't nearly as effective unless there are people around to point and laugh! (Oh wait, is that naughty enough to make Dove punish us???? This is too confusing but I do think a hot tub is good no matter where it is!)
