Both boys are twelve.
Tom has lived with you since you married his mom, but, while you've had visitation with Hank, he only moved in with you recently - not long before school started.
You've had some trouble with Tom over the years. His biological father has never been in the picture, and the two of you are close, but Hank has had a habit of acting out and being irresponsible at times - definitely a boy to act first and only think as the seventh or eighth action. That's led to serious trouble a couple of times.
Almost since you became his parent, you've handled discipline for Tom, and it's mostly been by corporal punishment. Last year, you introduced Tom to the switch, after he was caught shoplifting. He received the switch again for skipping school. Both times, he received his age with the switch, but after the second time, you promised to increase that if you needed to use it again.
As for Hank, while you have spanked him a time or two, it's been a rare thing, and you've never found a need to use more than your hand to get his attention.
Today, you were texted that both Hank and Tom weren't at school, and reminded that you needed to call in for an excused absence. You check at home, and, sure enough, the boys are playing in the backyard. Tom says it was just too nice a day to go to school, and admits that he talked Hank into staying home with him.
What happens next?
