The Question Club
Josh is 10.
Jason is 14.
They are brothers.
They start arguing about Josh's skateboard. Josh let Jason borrow the board when Jason started screwing with the trucks/ wheels. When Josh asked Jason to stop, he wouldn't and so Josh attempted to take his skateboard back. They start fighting and after a struggle, Josh gets his skateboard back. Jason taunts Josh constantly and today is no different. He teases and baits his little brother and then runs to his room and locks the door, continuing to taunt Josh from the other side of the door. Infuriated, Josh gets objects and starts throwing them at the door, damaging the door with holes and dents, etc. Jason opens the door at one point and sprays Josh in the face with RAID bug spray, which burns Josh's eyes and he falls to the ground in pain.
What do you think of this story/ these two brothers?
Would you punish them? How would you punish them?
ETA: This behavior isn't ...rare....for these two. This is a very bad day, granted. But they often fight, cuss - be it at each others, teachers, school bus drivers, etc. Josh has been busted vandalizing a church. for instance. They both do, however, make good grades.
Also, what should I clean my earrings with? (They are all silver - I want to shine them up and clean them as well.)
