You recently married your spouse. (moved in about two months ago) Your spouse has an eleven year old boy who she sometimes spanks. Today Jacob was upset as your spouse told him to go to his room for a spanking.
Your spouse usually spanks Jacob with either her hand or a small wood spoon. (over his jeans).
Your spouse is a little upset and tells you "I can't make the correct impression on that boy, will you give him a proper spanking today?" So far you have been an authority figure in Jake's life. You've even sent him to his room a few times, however you've never spanked him. (he respects you as his "real" other parent is not in the picture)
What do you do? What would be the proper spanking for Jacob?
