Your 14 year old son Jayden's grades started slipping last semester and you have recently been advised by his school that there has been no improvement - if anything a further slippage, particularly with regard to his homework which is nearly always shoddy or late
You have tried various things to improve the situation, but none of them has worked. Jayden has been spanked but rarely and not in the last few months
Tonight over dinner you ask him if he has any homework. He confirms that he has so you tell him to go upstairs once dinner is over and that he need not even bother with clearing the table and loading the dishwasher which is one of his chores but to just get on with the homework.
You go upstairs about 45 minute later, look in his room and see:
There is no evidence that any work has been done.
Is that chair going to be put to another use?
And are those snazzy shorts coming down?
