A DMK Production
Your fourteen year old son, Dylan is in his first year of high school. Dylan developed a pattern of being extremely tardy to class. The school has tried several means of addressing the tardiness. Dylan has been given writing assignments, detentions, ISS, and a one swat paddling. Dylan was still being tardy and so you were called in for a conference with Dylan, the assistant principal and the guidance counselor. Dylan said he had no good reason for the tardiness. He said he just lost track of time. You all made Dylan aware of the seriousness of this problem and the school threatened a more severe paddling and/or out of school suspension if the issue continued. After the conference you privately told Dylan that if he got in trouble for being tardy again that he would be spanked at home. Dylan understood and did well for a couple of weeks.
Tonight Dylan is relaxing in his room.
Dylan hangs his backpack on a hook by the kitchen door after he finishes his homework. You hear a crash from the kitchen and find that the hook holding Dylan's backpack broke and now Dylan's backpack is in the floor and, not being zipped up, all of the contents have fallen out. You start to gather the backpack and the contents and you happen to see a corporal punishment notice from the school.
It seems Dylan was given three licks today for "excessive and repeated tardiness." The notice further states Dylan was fifteen minutes late to third period. You are supposed to sign the note in acknowledgement of the punishment.
You notice that your name is already signed to the form. It is a poor forgery and is obviously in Dylan's handwriting. You take the form up to discuss the issue with Dylan.
