Re: Lazy teen grounding solution?
Glad you like my wife's essay idea. Its true lots of grounded teens either sulk round the house or stay in their room texting etc. My wife and our daughter's godmother, a retired teacher, are assigning dd 2,000 words on 'the importance of homework'. Her godmother will grade it to ensure its well written and she doesn't stray off topic. My wife works in a school so is familiar with sentences and punishment essays.
My daughter is really playing on me to get my wife to cancel the essay. Tonight I had, 'you're the best dad', and '2,000 words is soooo long'.
Thw women I work with say they'll never speak to me if they let dd wriggle out of the essay. Theyve met her once and both thought she was 15 going on 18 and a bit sassy. They haven't stopped chuckling since they heard about the essay and the 2,000 words.
