  • Grounding is a good tool, lots of chores, also talk about bullying. Have her write an essay on why its wrong and who it hurts.

  • Serious grounding with loss of all electronics and non essential activities. Make her research and write a report on why bullying is so wrong. Definitely a public apology that recognizes why what she did was wrong, that she understands how the other kid feels and she must be sincere.

  • Grounding and I would make him apologize to her publicly.

  • Along with the punishment try to find out why it was done. Lots of times the bully is hurting for some reason too.

  • wow i love all the ideas above.. i agree about all the advice.. first research why its work.. then publically apologize, then find out why, why did she do it, what do they have in common that makes them more alike.
