  • I never got grounded as I was too scared to be bad. When I hit teen years I did what I wanted because I was so sick of the strict rules & rebelled.

  • The dishwasher. No joke. I hated doing dishes (still do!) and they would ground me from the dishwasher so that I had to do all the dishes by hand. Sounds crazy, but it was effective.

  • I didn't get grounded, I got spanked. Usually for getting into something that I knew I was supposed to leave alone, or for talking back.

    It tickled my mom to no end to see that my DD was EXACTLY the same way with me, that I was with her. But I didn't usually get angry about it...I guess I put myself in my DD's place, rather than seeing it as a personal attack against me.

  • grounding didn't take place until I was in jr high thru high school and it was mostly from the phone. Which was a waste b/c my mom worked all the time so I would just use the phone until about 30 min before she got off work.

  • I only remember getting grounded like once or twice in my entire life. I think I was like 8 or 9 and I was grounded to my room (which only had my toys so no TV or anything...we didn't have much back then in 1984-85) for the rest of the day for annoying my brother.
