chore punishments

need some good chore ideas for a 7 year old. she is in big trouble and so far i have washing windows. dh suggested taking her around the neighborhood and making her clean up garbage. we've had dogs dragging garbage around so there is plenty to pick up.

taking toys didn't get through to her. grounding didn't get through.

Cleaning bedrooms, that was horrid when I was younger!

If the first two punishments didnt work, what will you do is she refuses to do the chores?

& I could be creative if I knew what she was in trouble for.

 cleaning her bedroom is her regular chore though.

 fighting with her brother. more like picking on him . and then refusing to go to her room. throwing a monster tantrum over being sent to her room. she throws these tantrums every once in awhile when she just does not want to listen and everything else we have tried has not worked.

My sister had her DD laying bricks! (Sister was already doing it so niece had to help). My mom always did washing the floor on your hands and knees, cleaning the tile grout with a toothbrush, pulling weeds, that kind of thing. I made my older niece vacuum stairs, washing laundry, cleaning litter, but she was 16 at the time.

What kind of punishment did your son get for the fighting?

Is she having trouble at school and taking her stress out at home?
