  • Well how old is the teen? How long have the been in the relationship? Are they typically a good teen or is this a common thing?

  • No cell phone,No computer for a WEEK! AND toilet bowl duty and dish duty for a week and if you have a dog..poo duty too.
    OH...AND take them to the library, have them find a book on sex and STD's and have them write a report on it,lol.
    I don't really know..I'm just making stuff up..mine are only 10 years and 14 I have a little ways to go. Good Luck there!
    When I got a sucker bite when I was a teen, I just lied about it and said I didn;t know what it was or how it go there, LOL.How my parents ever even PRETENDED to believe that lie was beyond me...but maybe it was easier for them to deal with it that way,lol.

  • Why should it have a punishment? how about because its gross, they should respect themselves more than that. I agree with the grounding, no computer, no cell phone

  • Not something I would punish for but I would be having a talk about respect, responsibility. I think the embarrassment of having a hickey is punishment enough.

  • I would seriously ground them for a couple weeks. S/He obviously has too much alone time with his/her boy/girl friend! School, church, and afterschool job would be the only places allowed.

  • Wouldn't you punish the one who gave the hickey? I think that the embarassment and ridicule of classmates is punishment enough.
