It depends on what she was grounded for. Sometimes I am a little too harsh for minor offense and a slack sometimes on major ones. I make mistakes as a parent. Kids make mistakes too. I think parenting is a learning experience. If she really wants to go then she has to be punished for her mis-deeds in another way. Extra chores, loss of allowance. No tv , no computer until then etc. While it is important to be consistent in your parenting, I think communicating with your child and meeting them half way sometimes is equally important.
