A DMK Bonus Production
Your sixteen year old son, Dexter, is typically a good kid and rarely finds himself in trouble. You last spanked him about two years ago but have never officially ruled out spanking as punishment. Since that spanking Dex got into minor trouble once and you handled it by having him do extra chores. Otherwise there have been no problems at home. As far as school, Dex was paddled in 8th grade for a cell phone violation. You truly believe he engineered that offense to gain his hall cred as far as paddlinig. Other than being occasionally called down for talking, Dex is not given to trouble in school. You do not have a specific guideline about double jeopardy and handle each situation, if it were to occur, on the merits of the situation. For the paddling in 8th grade, Dex lost his phone for a week.
Dex got his driver's license in April when he turned sixteen. You helped him get a safe and reliable car. He drives to and from school.
Since the beginning of time kids have been skipping out of campus and sneaking off for lunch during their lunch breaks. Yesterday, Dex and a friend decided to ditch campus at lunch and make a run to a local burger joint. Dex drove. The issue is this practice is highly against school rules. When Dex and his friend were returning to campus, they noticed the school's security officer in the student parking lot. Dex panicked and the two boys drove away. They ended up skipping their last two classes for the day as they never returned to campus. They just hung out at the friend's house - his parents were not home.
The next day, Dex and his friend were called to the principal. They had been reported by their last two period teachers for skipping. The boys came clean and were each given three licks. They could have easily been suspended but were given a break due to their clean records.
Dex is now standing before you and explaining the problem as he needs you to sign the CP notification from the school. He says, "I didn't plan on skipping."
Your response, please.
