New Age Grounding

So the topic of grounding Bean has come up every now and then. How do you ground a kid nowadays, with so much open availability to technology? How do you punish a kid in 2015? Do you make them go play outside?

My personal favorite is the technology grounding. I once told Bean she was grounded from her iPod and tablet. She replied “well I hid my iPod so you can’t take it.” My response: “I don’t need it, I’m just taking your cords.” I have also been known to take the xBox controllers. I prefer to think of it as psychological warfare. I love the look of distress on her face when her battery is almost dead.

Next step is changing the Wi-Fi password.

I’m evil, I know.
