A Late Chat Production
Your thirteen year old son, Harvey, is in eighth grade at the local middle school. Harvey is a good student but has a reputation as a class clown. The school principal is allowed to administer CP (up to four licks with a paddle) with parental permission. When needed you find that spanking is still a very effective punishment for Harvey.
The principal is on the phone with you and is requesting permission to give Harvey a "full count." If you do not agree to the paddling then Harvey will be suspended. There is an appeal process. If you feel the punishment is not warranted then you can appeal the decision to the District Supervisor. If you elect to appeal then punishment is stayed waiting an appeal decision.
You ask what Harvey did and the following is related to you:
Harvey's first period teacher had a medical emergency in the school parking lot this morning. She took a nasty fall but will be OK. She was unable to make it to class and, because of the short notice, the substitute had not yet arrived at school.
The principal went to supervise the class until the substitute arrived. The principal arrived to a chaotic classroom. The students were being typical unsupervised eighth graders and Harvey was in full clown mode. Harvey was standing on a chair the middle of the classroom yelling for the other students to look his way. Just as the principal walked in Harvey dropped his shorts and underwear and gave all present a full moon. The other students saw it as no big deal and as hilarious and burst out cheering and laughing. Harvey returned his clothes and took a bow. The principal sent Harvey to the office. The substitute has now arrived and the principal is ready to deal with Harvey.

Do you give permission for the licks? Do you let Harvey be suspended? Do you ask for an appeal to the supervisor?
Is Harvey also facing any sort of punishment from you?
