A DMK Production
You have always used spanking with your now twelve year-old son Ryan. Most issues were handled with an OTK session with your hand on Ryan's bare bottom but serious issue would earn an upgrade with the paddle. Ryan approached you right before his twelfth birthday and said he wanted to discuss punishments with you. Ryan said he felt a spanking was a "baby" punishment and asked you to start using grounding with him. Ryan had prepared his talk well and did a good job of making his case. You and he discussed just what being grounded would entail and you agreed to Ryan's request. That was a month ago.
This past Sunday Ryan was very late with his curfew and you caught him in a lie about his whereabouts. Ryan and a friend had been playing in a nearby abandoned warehouse and lost track of time. Ryan knew the warehouse was off limits due to safety reasons so he tried to lie about what he had been doing but you eventually got the truth out of him. Normally this would have earned Ryan an upgrade to the paddle but, per your new agreement, you told Ryan he was grounded for a week.
Monday and Tuesday were uneventful and Ryan seemed to be coping with his restrictions. Ryan came home from school on Wednesday (today) and seemed very disturbed. Ryan didn't seem to want to talk and disappeared in to his room. A bit later you heard the back door slam and went to investigate. You found Ryan sitting outside a "clubhouse" you had built for him in the back yard. Ryan looked very distraught.
You ask Ryan if he needed to talk about anything. Ryan unloads:
"I've changed my mind. Being grounded sucks and I can't stand it. I am already tired of not being able to do anything or go anywhere and there is no way I can do this through the weekend. I'm going crazy. Also, today my friend Danny invited me to go camping with him and his family this weekend. I was embarrassed to say I was grounded so I told Danny I could go. (You know Danny and his parents well and would have allowed Ryan to go on the camping trip under normal circumstances.) Now I don't know what to do. Will you please, please, please just give me a spanking and let me be done with being grounded? I know you will use the paddle and that's OK."
Do you agree to Ryan's change of mind? If you do agree to the spanking will you give consideration for "time served?"
