A DMK Production
Kyle is your thirteen year old son. He is spanked if a punishment is needed. Matthew is your son's very best friend and is also thirteen. Matthew is the son of a single mother and, due to her work schedule, Matthew spends a great amount of time at your house. You have known Matthew for seven years and you and he are close and you often consider him as your own kid. Matthew's mom is a very good parent and Matthew is usually well behaved but Matthew's mother does spank him when needed. You have never given Matthew a formal spanking but have swatted the seat of his pants on occasion to redirect him.
Today there was an unexpected snowfall and the schools were closed early. You work at home. Kyle called to say school was closing and that he and Matthew were leaving school. You told Kyle to come straight home and that he and Matthew could go back out and enjoy the snow after they got into warmer clothes (yes, Matthew has clothes at your house) and were home safely. (They have to walk home along a busy street - there is a sidewalk.) Matthew called his mother at work to let her know about school and that he was coming home with Kyle. She gave Matthew a similar instruction.
Almost two hours have passed and there is no sign of the boys. You call Kyle's phone and Matthew's phone and both go straight to voice mail. You get concerned and go searching and do not find them. You call Matthew's mom. She is concerned and has not seen them. You are about to call the authorities when the boys show up. They explain they went to a local golf course to play in the snow and that their phones died. You remind them that this was in direct defiance to your instruction and Matthew's mom's instruction. The boys respond, "It's no big deal, we were OK."
You call Matthew's mom to let her know that her son is OK. She tells you to feel free to punish him however it is you plan on punishing Kyle. (She knows you spank.)
Assuming you feel that a punishment is in order, how will each boy be punished?
