Cole is your twelve year-old son. Cole is spanked if needed. Cole has a few minor chores he is responsible for each morning. The chores are not a major ordeal - they are making sure his room is somewhat tidy, putting his dirty laundry in the hamper and making sure his dirty dishes from breakfast are in the dishwasher. After the chores are done then Cole is free to carry on with his plans for the day. School is now out for summer break and it has become a chore for you to get Cole to do his chores. Just last week, after the third day of blowing off his chores, you gave Cole a spanking. The spanking was not a major event - just a moderate and spanking over underwear. There was improvement in Cole's response to his chores after the spanking but it was short lived.
You work from your office at home and this morning you notice Cole is heading off to meet up with his friends:
You also notice dirty laundry and wet towels on Cole's bedroom floor and dishes and the remains of his last night's snack on the floor by his bed. The dirty dishes from Cole's breakfast are still on the table.
You call Cole back in and mention all of this to him. Cole says, "Chores are lame. I am supposed to meet up with the guys and I am already running late." Cole then says he will take care of it the "lame chores" this evening.
How do you respond?
