You need to go to the mall to do some shopping. Your twelve year old son, Ted, decides he wants to go with you. The last time you and Ted went to the mall, he wandered off without letting you know and it took you a long time to find him. You agree to let Ted come but tell him he can't be wandering off without your knowledge. You get to the mall and Ted is almost immediately bored with your choice of stores. He whines and begs to go off on his on. You agree and you make sure his phone is on and charged. You tell him to meet you at the fountain at 1:00 PM. You arrive at the fountain at 12:55. By 1:15, Ted is not there. You call his cell and all you get is voice mail. You make a few more attempts to call and you still get no answer. At 1:30, you go looking for Ted. He is still not found by 2:00 and so you get mall security involved. Finally at 2:15 he is found in American Eagle trying on jeans.
You ask Ted why he was not at the fountain at 1:00 and why he did not answer his phone. He just looks at you and blatantly says, "Because I was having fun and I wasn't ready to leave."
You quietly inform Ted that he will be given a spanking as soon as you get him home. Ted starts crying and making a scene.
Ted is still crying and loudly begging you not to spank him. He is saying how sorry he is and how you don't understand him. Two grandmotherly types happen upon the scene and see Ted crying and begging you not to spank him. The ladies say to you, "How dare you touch that angel!"
What do you say? What do you do? Are you going to "touch" your "angel?"
