A DMK Production
Your sixteen year old son, Nolan, has not been spanked in a year and a half. It isn't that you took spanking off of the table it is that Nolan has given you no reason to punish him. However, Nolan now has his driver's license and he has been named captain of his wrestling squad at school. Nolan is feeling a bit invincible and is becoming full of his perceived self importance. As a result Nolan has allowed his chores to slip, he has been having issues with curfew and he will disappear in his truck and tell no one where he is going. You and your spouse have tried to talk to Nolan about these issues and he has verged on rudeness and has become very passive aggressive.
You asked Nolan to please mow the yard - it is his chore. Nolan ignored you and took off in his truck and was gone all morning. You had no idea where he was and he wasn't answering his cell. Nolan came home and you asked him again to please mow as you had guests coming the next day and you wanted the yard to look nice. Nolan says he can't do it because he has plans already to practice with the wrestling squad,. Nolan looks at you and says, "Do it yourself, your arms ain't broke." Nolan takes off and is gone the rest of the afternoon and evening and finally comes home at 2:00am. Nolan's curfew is midnight. You ask Nolan for his keys and send him to bed saying that you all need to discuss the problems tomorrow. Nolan says a few choice obscenities about losing his keys but stomps on off to bed.
The next morning you try to talk to Nolan but he says he doesn't want to talk. Nolan is told that he has earned a spanking and you send him to get the belt. Nolan just looks at you and says, "No, I'm not taking a spanking like some little kid. Anyway I ain't done nothing wrong."
Nolan gets up and says, "I'm going for a walk."
You try to forbid Nolan to leave but he ignores you and walks past you and out the door.
Nolan took a walk in the park and apparently did a lot of thinking. He calls you.
"I am sitting out in the park and have been thinking. I am ready to talk to you about what all has been going on. But, it was a long walk and I am tired. Will you come pick me up? I am sitting on a rail by the main path."
How do you respond to Nolan? When the two of you do talk what will the topic of conversation be? Are Nolan's spanking days over?
