You and your son made a deal when he turned fourteen. You agreed to
exchange spankings for groundings when he needs to be punished. You reserved the right to spank him if you determined it was "extreme circumstances".
Well you son is grounded this weekend. He was not allowed to attend the swim meet at your local pool. You knew it wasn't a championship or playoff meet and explained to the coach that Taylor would be missing this week.
Well apparently Taylor slipped out of the house and went to swim. You walked into the pool to see him finish winning the race.
Well what's the plan now? Are these extreme circumstances?
