Liam is the oldest.
While you know Liam's had some trouble over the last couple of years (enough that he's having to repeat his 9th grade year), he's also tried hard to be responsible for his little brothers. While you've had some trouble with him, enough that he's become familiar with a couple of corners, and he's lost his phone once or twice, it hasn't been enough that you needed to warm his rear yet, though he accepted that as a possibility when he moved in with you.
Since moving in, two of Liam's little brothers have been spanked. In general, he agrees that they need it, and that they both deserved it when you gave it to them.
A couple of days ago, the judge who placed them with you called to see if how everything's getting along. Technically, you should wait until next April to start the adoption process (if you decide to), but the situation allows the judge to waive the wait. You've already decided you're willing, and if you start soon, you can finish it before Christmas, so you sit down and talk to Liam about it. Liam seems interested, but he wants to talk to his brothers first.
Now Liam has come to you and asked to speak privately.
"We're all interested - we want to be adopted, everyone loves it here. There's a problem."
You assure him that's fine and ask what it is.
"I know you think Curtis is too young to spank right now, and Connor and Devon both say you spank really hard, but they know they deserved it. I just can't make up my mind, though."
He takes a deep breath, looks you in the eyes while blushing, then turns away.
"I need you to give me a whupping before I can make up my mind."
Will you help him make up his mind, or is the waiting period a good idea after all?
