Deacon is your fifteen year old son and used to give you minimal problems and a spanking used to turn around any issues. Deacon was last spanked when he was thirteen. Since then, just because Deacon was getting older, you would ground him if he needed a punishment. Deacon has only been grounded twice since spankings stopped and it was for three days each time and he responded well to it.
Lately, Deacon has fallen into some unusual behavior for him. He has become disrespectful; Deacon has not been following curfew, doing his chores nor keeping up with his school assignments and homework. You talked with and warned Deacon about the ongoing and building issues but he ignored you. Last night when Deacon came in two hours late without calling it was the last straw. Deacon is now grounded for the weekend. Today is Saturday morning and Deacon has just left the house saying he is "going to go hang with the guys." You remind him that he is grounded and why and he says to you that he is not going to be grounded and that you can't make him.
Deacon is a big boy now but you are bigger so you could "make him" but you do not want to get into a physical confrontation with him.
How do you handle Deacon's defiance? If you decide to resume spanking, how would you do it?
