You are keeping your twelve year old grandson, Gordon, while your son and daughter-in-law are on a second honeymoon. You spanked you son, Gordon's dad, while he was growing up. Your son believes in spanking but your daughter-in-law does not support it. Gordon is punished with being grounded if it is needed.
Gordon thinks he would rather be spanked and wants to make a case to his mother about it but he is a little unsure. Gordon comes to you and asks you to give him a spanking like you did his dad as "an experiment." He says he thinks he wants to ask his parents to use spanking on him but he wants to make sure what a spanking is like.
What do you tell Gordon?
