A DMK Production
You have a twelve year old son, Sean. You find that spanking works really well when Sean needs a punishment.
Sean has been begging for some new shoes. The shoes are the latest fad and Sean "just has to have some." The shoes are expensive but you buy a pair for Sean. Sean loves his new shoes.
You explain to Sean that the shoes are ONLY for school and nice occasions. You stress to Sean that he is definitely not to wear the shoes for play. You tell Sean he can wear his old shoes, his sandals or go barefoot for other situations. Sean agrees.
It is the next day, a Saturday morning, and "the guys" come by and they all decide to go hang out together. Sean wants to show off his new shoes and so he wears them despite instructions to the contrary. You are unaware that Sean has gone out wearing his new shoes.
Boys being boys, the guys find some mud. It is very good mud and the boys all concern themselves playing in the mud. Sean does not think to take off his new shoes.
Sean and the guys headed back to your house:
Yes, those are his new shoes he is holding and, yes, they are most likely ruined.
You happen to be outside when the boys walk up to the house and you notice Sean's new shoes first thing.
How do you respond?
