I asked this question in another post, but it kind of got lost among other issues. So, I wanted to give this topic its own thread. Do you think it is better to ground or take away the privileges of your child for an extended period of time? How long is enough time to get your point across that there are consequences to their actions? Do you think the longer you ground your child, the more the resentment builds and the reason they are in this predicament becomes muddled into a issue of anger at you for being the "bad guy"?
