Hey guys! Here is a sneak peek at Chloe’s penalty list we used during our experimental punishment of simulating jail. This will be included in a more detailed article, which is part of my blog series, “Court of Family Law.”
- Write Court Summons
- Create script for “Court of Family Law” session
- Order orange jumpsuit for uniform (to be worn at all times within the proximity of home and directly outside of the house with the exception of replacing top with a white t-shirt – “cell” only) – Proper attire for school and church.
- 5 days that Chloe attends school she will have cereal for breakfast, school lunch, and PB & J for dinner, with juice, milk, or water. Bread for snacks with the exception of the option to purchase other snacks.
- Weekend days that Chloe is home all day she will have cereal for breakfast, ham & cheese sandwiches for lunch and PB & J for dinner, with juice, milk, or water. Bread for snacks with the exception of the option to purchase other snacks.
- Showers only – 10 minutes and timed.
- “Cell”/Sleep space = laundry room (extra bedroom) with random inspections as the bed is to be made unless sleeping in it.
- Chloe will not be permitted to be anywhere other than her designated work space or sleep space without the permission of Daddy Thomas or myself.
- No electronics, period.
- Regular chores plus additional tasks that can only be given at the discretion of Daddy Thomas, Grandma or I.
- On weekends Chloe can opt for 1 hour of confined, supervised “yard” time (aka the deck)
- Chloe will be allowed to check out 1 book at a time to read during breaks and before lights out.
- During her incarceration she will be expected to write apology letters to the victim, his parents, and the bus driver and deliver them.
- Maximum penalty: 2 weeks incarceration without the possibility of earning Summer Camp attendance.
- Intended penalty (dependent upon results of the hearing): 1 week incarceration with the possibility of earning Summer Camp attendance.
- Any further infractions similar in nature and/or levity will result in her immediate disqualification of earning attendance at Summer Camp and may lead to further disciplinary action.
So, what do you think so far!? Are we strict enough?? Too Strict? YOU tell ME.
