An Ivor Production
You have been out of work for the last couple of months so money is tight. Mind you it has always been tight as you have only ever had a low paid job. Consequently buying clothes for your now 13 year old son Davie is a problem especially as he has been going through a growth spurt. He usually wears items you buy from the Thrift/Charity shops in town which has led to him being picked on at school.
Today he is very late (over an hour) coming home - which would be a spanking offence - so you go out looking for him. When you find him this is what you see:
He's been doing odd jobs in the neighbourhood recently such as grass cutting to earn some money and today he wore to school the new pair of red converse he had bought at the weekend. Unfortunately the other kids laughed at him and accused him of have stolen them so he got in a fight. Hence the tear in his jeans and another rip in the back of his shirt.
He tells you as you are walking home that he and the three other boys with whom he was fighting all got a couple of licks of the VP's paddle but he seems strangely pleased about that.
What's going to happen to Davie when you get him home?
