A Late Chat Production
You have two sons. Spencer is fifteen and Peter is seven. If needed, even for Spencer, spanking works as the best punishment.
You and your spouse would like to go out for a date night. You all feel Spencer is old enough to watch Peter and so you ask him if he would take care of Peter while you all had your date. You offer the rate that you would have normally paid a sitter. Spencer agrees. You recently acquired a Great Pyrenees puppy. Peter considers the puppy to be his dog and named it Eliot.
The evening of your date arrives and you give Spencer money for pizza. You remind Peter to listen to Spencer and tell Spencer to call if there are any problems. You tell the boys you will not be gone more than five hours. As soon as your car is out of the driveway, Spencer tells Peter to leave him alone. He says he will order the pizza later but right now he wants some privacy. Spencer tells Peter, "I really don't care what you do just stay out of my hair." Spencer holes up in his room listening to music and texting his girlfriend.
Peter decides to take Eliot outside to play with him but it has recently been raining and Eliot gets very muddy. Peter is not supposed to be outside after dark by himself. Peter decides Eliot needs a bath. Peter starts filling the bath tub. Eliot has other ideas and runs off and Peter chases after him. The water is still running. It takes Peter a while to catch Eliot and when he returns to the bathroom the tub has overflowed and the bathroom is filled with water. The water has flowed out on the carpet in the hall and has also started seeping into the dining room ceiling below. Peter panics but does not think to shut off the water. Peter climbs up the door frame to escape the "flood" and starts yelling for Spencer. Eliot has run off again. Spencer cannot hear Peter because he has his earbuds in and his music is loud.
Your spouse is not feeling well so you cut your date short and come home to a wet and muddy dog running around in the house. You find a flood and your younger son clinging to a door frame. You get the water off and your spouse helps Peter off of the door frame. There is water everywhere. You knock on Spencer's door and he yells out, "I told you to leave me alone you little pest."
How do you handle this situation?
