You have three adult children and your children all have boys.
Your oldest son has twin boys, William and Walter. Your oldest son punishes William and Walter like you punished him - with a "good ole' fashioned bare bottom whuppin'".
Your daughter has a son, Benji. Benji is not spanked. The only time Benji was ever spanked was by you when he was eight. It isn't that your daughter or son-in-law have any issues with spanking; they just feel other punishments work better.
Your youngest son has a son named Derek. Derek is spanked but it is just hand over clothing.
All of your grandsons are thirteen. The cousins are very close.

All of your grandsons are on a school break and you have been able to make arrangements for them to spend the week with you. Your spouse passed away two years ago. You were able to clear your work schedule for the time the boys are visiting except for today and you had to go in to your office to meet a client. The boys said that was fine and that they would just go fishing while you were away.
The boys did not go fishing. Instead they decided to have a little fun and play some "pranks." You get a call at the office from a friend of yours who is a deputy sheriff. He says he has your four grandsons in custody and will release them to you with no charges filed. He says the boys were caught spray painting on a highway over pass and throwing eggs at cars.
You go to the station and collect your grandsons. They admit to doing what they were accused of. They say there was already other painting on the over pass and theirs looked better. They also said they didn't mean anything by egging cars; they were just having fun.
How do you punish each boy, or, do you punish them? Are they handled differently or in the same way?
