Another post just made me think about this, lol. Sometimes, when my oldest dd (almost 5) is grounded, I make her sit and write. Usually, her "grounding" lasts for about 5 hours, and I'll have her write for about 1 hour of that. I have a practice pad for her, with raised lines, similar to what they use in schools, and I make her sit and practice writing letters and words. She usually has to fill 1 page with each letter, then 2 pages with words. She's never complained about it, and I would rather her spend the time learning than sitting in her room. What do you think?
