A DMK Production
Carson is your thirteen year old son. Carson is still subject to spanking but since his 13th birthday you have also experimented with grounding as a punishment for Carson and it has proven to be as effective as spanking. Carson is currently in to day four of a week's long grounding and has handled it well. It is Saturday morning and Carson comes to you with a concern.
Carson says he and his best friend Donovan are partners on a school project that is due next week. You are aware of the project and do know the boys have been working on it together. Carson shows you his progress and says he needs to go see Donovan so they can finalize the assignment. Your spouse is not well and so it is not practical for Donovan to come to your house. Carson says he knows he is grounded but he really needs to do it. You review the project with Carson and call Donovan's parents. All seems to be in order and, since it is for school, you allow Carson to take his bike and go to Donovan's house. You tell him he is to go only to Donovan's house and that they are to spend the time on the project. You tell Carson that you will review what they accomplished when he returns home. Carson thanks you and grabs his books and materials and heads out.
About an hour later you make a run to the pharmacy to get some things for your spouse. You notice the following in the shopping center parking lot:
Carson and Donovan have not seen you.
How do you handle this issue?
