When he got in trouble this past weekend, he was at a friend's house. The friend's father, Jack, was going to paddle the other three boys who were with him. Mike called, begging you to give Jack permission to paddle him at well.
Later, Mike told you all about it - that he'd had to take three swats, bare, in front of the other boys, with a plastic paddle that 'burned like crazy'. He was actually pretty proud of having taken it, though, and talked about how supportive the other boys are.
Then he turns to you and mentions that Jack usually gives his guys the choice between being grounded or getting paddled, when they get in trouble.
To be honest, you have no trouble with CP. Mike seems a bit old for it now, but you mostly quit spanking him, because you didn't want him to think you were being unfair with him, because of his sisters.
When you point out to Mike that he's probably a bit mature for CP on a regular basis, he points out that giving him some choice in the matter is probably treating him more maturely.
You finally tell him you'll think about it.
Are you going to call Jack to complain about him causing problems or to ask where he gets those plastic paddles?
