A Leti Production
Your twelve year-old son, Remington, is typically a well behaved boy. He is also maturing a bit and has developed some "peach fuzz" in his beard and mustache areas. The hair above his lip is turning a bit dark. Remmy overhears some of the girls at school talking about his facial hair and they were laughing. Remmy assumed the girls were making fun of him but, in fact, the girls liked his facial hair.
Remmy comes home from school and no one is home yet. Your son decides he has to do something about his facial hair and so he sneaks in to your bathroom and finds your electric shaver. Remmy does not realize he doesn't need to use any shave cream with the electric and so he also lathers his face up with some of your spouse's shave cream and sets to work. The shaver does not respond well to the cream and stops working. Remmy has broken your shaver. Remmy is not supposed to be in your bathroom nor is he supposed to use something of yours without permission. The boy gets scared and hides the shaver in his closet and then uses his bathroom to clean his face.
You suspect nothing until the next morning when you are trying to get ready for your day. You realize your shaver is missing. You don't have time to look for it and so you break out the blade and foam and go on about your day. That evening at dinner you mention your missing shaver and ask if anyone has seen it. Remington is very vocal about his innocence and promises he knows nothing. Remington is a bit too vocal - something you find uncharacteristic of your son. You leave the subject alone until after dinner.
You visit Remmy in his room and he is working on his homework. You ask if you two can talk. You tell Remmy you suspect he knows something about your shaver and tell him why. The boy sighs and fishes your broken shaver out of his closet and hands it to you and then explains what happened. Remmy is subject to spanking and fears this is something that will earn him a sore backside. Remmy tearfully asks you not to spank him.
How do you respond to this?
