A DMK Production
Your twelve year old son, Elliott, is still subject to spanking and it works well. You only use your hand and spank Elliott over your knee. Elliott's friends are all also spanked and the boys will sometimes discuss their spankings.
All of Elliott's friends get "whippings" with a belt and have teased Elliott some because he still gets it "like a little kid."
Elliott talked to you and asked you to consider using a belt and to stop putting him over your knee. He said maybe if you used a belt he could even get fewer swats. You see no reason to change what is working. You tell Elliott that there is no reason to change his spanking routine. Elliott mentioned the issue a couple of more times but you still would not entertain a change. You were getting good results with minimal (in your mind) spanking.
Today Elliott is in trouble for consistently missing his curfew without calling and the two of you have agreed he needs a spanking. You send him to his room and say you will be right there to spank him. When you arrive in Elliott's room his shorts and undies are at his ankles and he is bent over the side of his bed and he has laid his belt out next to him on the bed. Elliott looks back at you and nods to the belt and says, "I'm ready."
What do you do?
