If you want one and only one check box, then use radio buttons. It's better to prevent user errors than to check and notify.

As Tom said, a radio button will only allow for one value to be selected. It would be the best route to do that.

If you still want to use a checkbox,

You can call this onsubmit of your form

Hope this helps
