You have a twelve year old son, Eric. Eric is still subject to spanking if needed. Eric is a very curious boy and very mechanically minded.
Eric's curiosity has led him to disassemble and reassemble the toaster and an alarm clock. Surprisingly both still worked after Eric took them apart and put them back together. Eric is just overcome with knowing how things work and is a real hands on sort of boy. You thought nothing of the toaster and alarm clock and chalked it up to a phase. When Eric opened up the blue ray player, you told him to not take anything else apart without asking you first. Upon reassembly, the player worked just fine. When the blender stopped working, you gave it to Eric to explore. Eric managed to repair the blender. When you caught Eric taking the back off of the microwave, you gave him a couple of sharp spanks to the seat and reminded him of your rule. Eric put the microwave back together and promised he would stop disassembling the appliances.
You made a quick trip to the grocery store and left Eric at home alone. When you returned, Eric had disassembled his video game system.
You remind Eric of the rule and his agreement. Eric says the game is HIS. He felt he could do with it as he pleased but says that the game will work just fine when he puts it back together.
How do you deal with your budding engineer?
