  • I think at 10 you should make the punishment fit the crime. Yes he should clean up his mess. If he refuses then your hubby can spank him and make him clean it up.

  • I would make him clean it up, rewash the clothes and then let him know he can no longer eat sunflower seeds in the house. If you catch him spitting in your home again let your husband spank him. Take away his favorite things as well.

  • I would make him clean it up, rewash everything- the floor and clothes, and not let him eat sunflower seeds in the house anymore. IF (for some really strage reason) it happened again I would personally skip the spanking, and just take away favorite things. I don't believe in physical punishment. It doesn't accomplish anything.

  • If he's being defiant about it and actually refusing to clean it up when you tell him to, I'd spank him AND make him clean it up.
