A Memory Man Production
You work (and live) away from home during much of the week and so have only limited opportunity to bond with your 10yo son Brett. Your spouse is deep in the anti-spanking camp and sadly is also woefully ineffective at disciplining the boy by other means in your absence. Consequently he is getting quite brattish in his behaviour.
A smack from you when he misbehaves brings waves of disapproval and when you went further and actually spanked his bare bottom several months ago it caused such a row that you turned all discipline over to her, effectively walking away from the responsibility. (She's not happy about that either)
This weekend, accompanied one of your friends (who has no qualms about spanking his son) you've taken Brett and his boy on an expedition to a newly created nature reserve along the coastline.
All goes well until you stop by the shore for your lunch pack and the two of you relax whilst the boys play in the water. The boys protest when it is time to go but are overruled and you start to pack up - or at least three of you do. When you turn round you find Brett hasn't moved and he just shakes his head and looks insolently at you when you repeat the instruction.
You have no intention of negotiating with him and even less of threatening to tell his mother in front of your friend and his son.
So how will you "persuade" him?
