Anyways, I take away privileges; tv, computer, friends, telephone etc…
Then stripped down room after the second run away to be w/ friends. And he did hard labor, probable should have done more.
Took all his cool clothes; he can earn them back if he can get his teachers to sign a paper that says either yes/no to preparedness in school for the day.
Working w/ ex husband so he backs me up. Seems to be helping. This is the question though:
When he is grounded for major stuff; total disrespect and verbal abuse or running away to hang w/ buds. His grounding is from everything listed above including family activities. So if we as a family go out for ice cream – he doesn’t go. My ex says this is terrible, he should never be not allowed to do family stuff.
Compares it to me not being allowed to go to thanksgiving at my mom’s house cause she didn’t like my behavior as an adult. I say if I yelled at my mom now like my son yells at me, she probable would ask me not to come.
What do you think; should he be allowed to do family stuff during groundings???
