A DMK Production
Your thirteen year old son, Carter, is a soccer fanatic. He loves the game and is very good at it. He plays for a local league and is a star player. Whenever Carter has free time he enjoys practicing his skills. There is a park about a half mile away from your home where Carter could practice (and does go there sometimes.) There is also a practice field maintained by the league that is available that you often drive Carter to. Despite those options, Carter seems to prefer to practice his skills in the street in front of your home.
When Carter is involved in his practice he is aware of nothing else. The street is not very busy but drivers typically ignore the speed limit. The street has several blind spots. In short, you feel the street is not a safe place for Carter to practice.
You have made Carter aware of your concerns and told him to not practice in the street. Two weeks ago you caught him in the street with his ball and reminded him of the rule. Just a week later you again found Carter playing in the street and promised a spanking if he ignored your rule again.
Today you arrive home from work and see:
You remind Carter of your rule and of the promised spanking. Carter responds, "You worry too much. The street is safe. Only one car has been by since I have been out here and he honked his horn and I moved out of the way. I'm not a little kid anymore."
