There's another huge movie opening this week, and the 'sneak preview' starts at 7pm on Thursday night.
"Please, Dad," he begs you. "All the kids are going. PLEASE!"
"Rusty, I told you after what happened last time, that you weren't going to a movie on a school night again."
"But Dad, I did all my homework. Look," he adds, holding a folder out to you.
"This isn't about what you're doing, but about what I told you would happen, Rusty."
Actually, you'd planned on busting his butt for the layers of lying he'd laid on, but your partner convinced you that this would make a better impression. On the other hand, Rusty really is a good student, and that's the only problem you've had with him (related to school, at least) all year.
He's nearly in tears now. Will you stick to his guns? Has he learned his lesson? Or is it time for the spanking you'd thought about giving him six months ago?
