You come home from work and your eleven year old son, Stanley, greets you with a very bizarre statement, "You need to give me a spanking."
After questioning the following comes to light:
Stanley's school had a special guest speaker today about morals and values and honesty. Stanley has been feeling guilty since the summer. The neighbor's windows were broken and Stanley was implicated but denied involvement and it was never proven that Stanley was responsible. You had basically forgotten about the incident. Stanley now admits that he was throwing rocks at wasp nest on the neighbor's house and missed and broke the windows. Stanley says he is sorry for lying and for breaking the windows and he realizes he needs to be punished.
How do you respond to Stanley?
