The Hogans home school their younger sons, 8 year old David and 11 year old Ike, and their daughter, while their older two boys (still at home) go to a private, Christian school.
Recently, Mrs. Hogan had some health problems. She was hospitalized while they were trying to diagnose the problem and find it's cause. You ended up with the boys staying with you for a few days. The older boys went to school with your sons who attend the same private academy, but you had to watch the younger ones during the day.
The first day wasn't much of a problem. Despite the fact that you own your own business, you had to go in to work. The boys spent some time in your office, quietly catching up on some assignments, then having free time. The problems came on the second day. You were trying to work back and forth with the boys, answering questions on their assignments, but one, and sometimes both boys, weren't willing to sit down and concentrate. It seemed that, as soon as you turned your back, they were back to playing.
You have permission to spank the boys, and you've done it before. They know how you spank, and their parents spank them for this kind of behavior. What do you do now?
