You work at home, so there's no trouble with him staying home. The trouble is, sometimes you have to have some private time, mostly for work related phone calls.
Dwight has been getting more independence the past year, and he's now able to ride his bike to visit friends - as long as you know the friends' family and where they live, and as long as he's good about getting home on time.
The trouble is that he's not supposed to leave the house without letting you know, and if you're in 'private work time' (signified by the door to your office being shut) he's not supposed to bother you.
After getting in trouble for bothering you a couple of times, one day, Dwight just decided to take off. When you got hold of him, his bare bottom was turned an interesting shade of red. After some recovery time, you explained to him why the rule was in place, and why it was important for him to obey it.
It's been a couple of weeks since that spanking, but Dwight did it again today. When he got home, you reminded him of the rules, and told him he was going to get a firmer spanking this time. In reply, he went running out the back door. When you follow him...
Is he right?
