  • Children should be grounded if it is an appropriate situation for the circumstance.

    Children will never learn respect for authority unless parents teach them what happens when they break the rules. In the real adult world, People do get grounded (sent to jail) for breaking the law, So shouldn't kids learn how to be docile and submissive earlier? Grounding children also improves behavioral issues, If you create a personal incentive to behave, Children will. Because children will not want to be grounded, They'd rather just obey the rules. The point of this isn't to take away things they like, It's so if they do it once, They won't make the same mistake again, They'll remember the consequences. This means they won't even do whatever caused them to be grounded.

  • I support this

    Kids should be grounded because if they dont behave then they ever listen to the adult if they arent corrected by their behavior growing up. Kids dont listen start with time our; then start to take there stuff Way and then begin to extend there time away from the item.

  • From a former groundee

    So my mom never hit me but always grounded me when I did something bad. She would talk and reason with me calmly from the perspective of knowing i was going to make mistakes. Here’s the thing though, I had a realization today that grounding me as a kid taught me that I needed to isolate myself whenever I did something wrong. I’m now an adult and I battle bad depression and normal overall stress like the rest of us. What I’ve noticed about myself over the years is that I isolate myself whenever I get down. I stay away from people and then the symptoms get worse. Everything in my life starts to slip slowly until I feel like I’m drowning and don’t have the energy to swim. Instead of fixing it I double down and isolate more. I think, Subconsciously I’m “grounding” myself because I know that I need to fix things and I’m not doing it. I start to not like myself and feel that I don’t deserve to go hang out with friends and have a good time. I think that’s the way I discipline myself and I really think it’s because I was taught at a very young age up until 18 that if I do something wrong I don’t get the privilege of freedom and fun. I don’t know if this is the case for everyone but like I said I had a realization and then googled to see if anyone felt the same and came up sort of empty, But it did lead me here.

  • Kids should not be grounded

    Grounding is an unfair way to teach kids a lesson. Plus they can miss out on all the fun that they deserve. Yes they misbehave, But that doesn't mean you should ground them. In, Conclusion, Kids should not be grounded because there is so much they could miss out on.

  • No they should not

    If you ground them their just going to bug you about it and won't leave you alone. Also if you find a more alternative punishment they might not do more things you might not want them to do. That is my supporting argument. Hope you liked it. BYE BYE BYE

  • No stop go to your room your grounded

    Tired of saying those words all the time.I totally get it its an pain but ever wonder why your kids continue to do the same things over and over again.Well have you ever taken your kids electronics and then the next day you find them sneaking there phones in there rooms our what about telling your kids that they can't go hang out with there friends and then you catch them coming hime late at night.Well there you have it grounding your kids causes them to be sneaky and defiant.So don't ground your kids but don't let them get away with there actions either find a different way to punish your kids but that does't give you the excuse to hit your kids either.I know what some of you are thinking ill be a horrible mother if I don't ground my kids but I will find my ways.

  • It's very mean

  • It is not needed

    “You’re grounded!” How many times have you said that? Once, twice or a thousand times? You should never have to say that again; kids should not be grounded. According to Yahoo.Com, grounding only works if executed right; but sometimes it doesn’t work at all. Expert Michele Borba said. Grounding usually involves a child’s losing TV time or access to a favorite game as well as the ability to attend an event, such as a party or play date — anything they would consider fun and isn’t required, such as school and doctor appointments. According to parentingbasics.Com, grounding causes the need to be sneaky; grounding also is counterproductive. Grounding leaves kids almost impossible to control. Also it says grounding often leads to being defiant later because if they know that they would be grounded anyways they would do things even when the parent says not to (Parenting.Basics.Blogspot.Com). Sometimes I personally play videogames when I am grounded usually when in the bathroom because I feel the need to play them. Personally I believe this is because I am grounded so much that I believe I need to play to keep in touch with my games and friends. It also makes me feel the need to be secretive because if my phone goes off my dad always asks me why my phone went off. According to radicalparenting.Com, do not rely on taking away things, such as their cell phones. They know they will get it back eventually, so it doesn’t have the same affect. Remember to take away things that they care about that they cannot get back. Such as if they want to get a new game tell them that they cannot get it until they are good for a week straight or something like that (radicalparenting.Com). Dr. Edward R. Chirstophersen suggests to parents still wishing to punish their children for bad deeds suggests ‘job grounding’. ‘Job grounding’ is when instead of taking away things to give jobs. For example kids would be punished for a detention by mowing the lawn. He says that there should be different levels so that if the kid gets a detention he won’t be a punishment like clean the living room (learnvest.Com). As you can see; kids shouldn’t be grounded ever again.

  • NO! Stop! Your Grounded!

    Heard those words before? I, a kid myself disagree to grounding. Instead of punishing them, for mistakes, talk to them. TO some parents its a game, how can we make a child the most angry? Really? It's not productive. They have to teach their children to learn how to be an adult when they're older.

  • It isn't fair.

    Grounding children for their mistakes is unfair. Parents should understand and try to imagine their life without whatever the punishment is. Taking away kids' electronics seems legit, but not allowing them to go down and play, or simply leave the house, is just mean. It's like they want to keep them like prisoners and almost torchere them. Children should be told their mistakes calmly, but if no success is found, a punishment can be given, provided it isn't too harsh.

  • It's not right to limit their contact with the world.

    The typical grounding is no phone or electronics, no going out except for school and extra work. Well, that just seems too harsh. It's okay to take away their electronics, I agree with that. But, not being allowed to leave the house makes parents seem like they're keeping them prisoners. We need fresh air and exercise. If we go to school, have one, maybe two recesses and a lunch to be the only time we can move and get air, then our brains would go crazy.

    If parents wanna make kids listen, take away their electronics and have them do a bit of extra work, or have them do some more chores, but don't, I repeat, DON'T limit their contact with the world!
