A Late Chat Production
You have twin thirteen year old sons, Alex and Alan. When Alex and Alan need redirection you find spanking is still very effective.
You are fortunate and your twins are able to attend a prestigious and sound private school. Each year the school has an end of year tradition of offering students an opportunity to go on a cruise to celebrate the conclusion of a successful school year. You are able to allow Alex and Alan to go on the cruise. You are also asked to attend as one of several chaperones and are able to do so.
Discipline issues on the cruise are typically rare but, as chaperone, you do have several options available to you to address behavior concerns if needed. The school does not use any form of corporal punishment and CP on the cruise from chaperones is expressly prohibited.
On one night of the cruise the students are invited to have dinner at the captain's table and tonight is the night for your boys, yourself and a few other students and chaperones to dine with the captain.
Your twins envision themselves as budding magicians and like to practice their tricks and are certain they have one trick mastered. Dinner is underway and Alex and Alan get up and together jerk the table cloth off of the table. The trick goes horribly wrong and dishes and table ware and food crash to the floor. You and the others are in shock.
After several embarrassed apologies and assistance with cleaning up you take Alex and Alan back to their cabin to address the matter.
How do you handle this? Does the CP ban still apply since they are your sons and not an unrelated student? Is this even an offense that would earn a spanking?
FYI, you are wearing a leather belt, there is a hairbrush on the night table, Alan has brought his leather soled carpet slippers, Alex brought a fly back paddle toy to play with, and your hands are in good shape.
