Brandon, your 12 year old, did his chores, but didn't finish one of them. You've warned him before how he's supposed to do it, so you decide he needs a strike for repeatedly not doing it right. When you go to list the strike, you see he already had two, so he's getting spanked. While you're checking on chores, you also notice that Bradley, your 9 year old, didn't do any of his chores before leaving. He had three for the day, and since he gets a strike for each one he didn't do before going, that puts him at three.
Bradley's usually pretty good about doing his chores, but Brandon's been spanked several times for it, since you started the system. Are you going to hold Bradley to the rules, or let him off easy? If you let him off, will it effect how you treat Brandon?
