How do you effectively ground one child without ruining the other children's fun? One of my 8yo's is grounded for the week for her sassy mouth, hitting and kicking her older sister, and blatently breaking the rules while DD was babysitting; and I've had to not let the other 2 play the Xbox for the amount of time during her grounding because unless I send her to her room for a whole week - no matter where in the house they are - they can see and watch the Xbox.

I also know that because she's grounded - we won't be able to do anything fun because she'll think she's ungrounded. I don't have the money for a babysitter, DH is at work all week, and I *can* leave her at home with the older DD -but DD needs every outing she can take to help "cure" her anxiety. Suggestions?

Have her sit out when you go to fun places? And do educational stuff in another room while they play video games.

Why don't you just set only certain times that Xbox can be played and during that time the punished kid has to be in her room? An hour in her room won't kill her. Although neither will a week without Xbox for the other kids...

Have her sit and watch the others while your out. Also at home make her ho to her room and read while the others are playing the xbox.

It's a little difficult to ground an 8 yr old. I would just give her lines to write or something like that

So send her little butt to her room when the Xbox is on.

That's a bit harsh IMO. She didn't steal/kill/do something illegal

Quoting seximami111:
