I'm not against spanking but 12 and 14 year olds are too old to be spanked. My kids are turning 12 and 14 this month and I can't imagine even lightly patting their behinds. They are at an age where they need to be learning adult responsibilities and consequences. Broken iPod? Ok, his loss, oh well. If he wants a new one he can earn the money to buy it. End of story.

I don't blame you for cutting ties with your cousin. That is a weird situation. Be totally open with your son about it and he's old enough to keep himself away from that situation as well.
