Instead of just grounding your child with a time limit when they do something wrong, why not make them work to get out of being grounded instead!
Work on a point system. They have to get 500 points to get out of being grounded. Here are some ideas for you.
Write a nice letter to someone in the family = 10 Points
Help a relative with homework = 20 Points
Help prepare and cook Dinner = 50 Points
1 Load of laundry (wash, hang, fold and put away) = 100 Points
Clean and organise a kitchen cupboard = 50 Points per cupboard
Pack and empty dishwasher = 25 Points
Clean and wipe down tables and counters = 25 Points
Clean out microwave = 40 Points
Take out rubbish = 10 Points
Scrub sinks = 10 Points
Clean toilet = 50 Points
Water plants = 25 Points
Sweep floors = 50 Points
Feed animals = 25 Points
Clean Bedroom = 50 Points
Gardening = 50 points
The things you can get them to do are endless. You can decide on the point amount too.
So instead of them just sitting around the house or in their room they're actually doing something with their time and helping around the house and helping others.
