There are times when your wife acts up and because you have guests or minor children in the house it may seem as though there is nothing you can do about her behavior right then and there.
The first rule is to never let your wife get away with acting up. You must keep in mind that she wants you to be firm. You are the Head of the House and she likes it that way. But, she does tend to work it doesn't she? "Oh honey you can't spank me now we have guests." or "If you spank me now the kids will hear." So the remedy to anyone hearing your naughty wife get a spanking is to send her to your room, bare her bottom and have her lay on the bed with her face in a pillow. Then grab a plastic coat hanger and start teaching her to NOT act out.
Your guests or children will never know what happened for that 5 minutes or so that the two of you left the room because the coat hanger is a wonderfully silent stinger. It's what must be done to prevent chaos and defiance in her attitude. Once your wife begins to loose respect for your authority things start going down hill from there. As long as she knows that no matter what the circumstance is, she will get spanked, then you'll have a long a wonderful marriage.
