What do you do when grounding does not work anymore???Teenagers!!!!
My almost 16 yr. old has been in all kinds of trouble. I grounded her for 1 week from everything mainly the phone..and she was caught 4 times sneaking the phone!!! We disabled all the phone jacks in our house and keep all phones in my room and lock the door if we leave only to leave her with a cell that we can check the cell bill to see if she has used it. I grounded her one more week for the 4 times.On sunday she says I need to call BMV and ask a question about a drivers license...we said no wait til tuesday when you get the phone back. She says you call!!! We said No wait til tuesday..So my daughter goes to school on Monday and uses a phone calls the BMV and comes home and tells us about it..also found she was on myspace some how Monday too.She was gettin ungrounded on tuesday!!! So I said No driver ed or you are grounded 2 more weeks(1 week for each offense). She picked no drivers ed so she is ungrounded but what do I do next time grounding her is like being grounded myself!!!Any advice??? Maybe I should ground her for less time??? With No driver ed she has to wait til she is 17..ha ha!!
