*Kier, Jkher, Leti, John Boy, DMK
You have a fourteen year-old son, Liam. Liam is very well behaved and a bit of a geeky kind of kid. He has not been in trouble in almost two years. Even then, trouble was rare but a spanking was all it took to bring Liam around.
Liam has fallen in love with a young lady who lives at the end of the street. The problem is she has no idea that Liam exists, or so he thinks. Liam wants to impress her and win her love so he devises a plan.
Liam kidnaps her dog while it is out in her yard. He has no plan to harm the dog. He plans on keeping the dog hidden in the house for a while and then returning it to her. Liam is certain he will look like a hero to the young lady when he returns her dog safely. The idea goes as Liam planned. Liam successfully took the dog and has actually enjoyed playing with it for the day. Upon return of the dog the elated young lady gave Liam a quick kiss and declared him her hero.
You and your spouse arrive home for work none the wiser of Liam's dognapping activities. Liam has gone to a friend's house for a while. The young lady's parents come around and tell you how Liam found their lost dog and how grateful they are. They give you fifty dollars and ask you to pass on the reward to Liam with their appreciation. When Liam returns home you pass on the reward and compliment him on a job well done.
Liam looks very disturbed and starts crying. He tells you he cannot accept the reward and then confesses to what he did. Liam says he will accept any punishment you decide to give him but he begs you not to let the young lady or her parents know what he did.
How do you handle this?
