My kids decided it was a great idea to treat my couch like a trampoline. Now my couch is sunk in. Then my older brother (tad over weight) pushed him self up from the couch and broke it even more. Now I got a broken couch and no one will fess up to who did it. Do I ground,all of them?

Well it's probably too late now. What didn't you stop them or discipline them when they were jumping on the couch? As for your older brother, how can you ground him?

Beat them with the couch until someone fesses up, mafia style.
(very much kidding)
Yes, ground everyone and make them do things to earn ninety to pay for the damage, if they're old enough to understand that concept.

Did they know that jumping on the couch isn't aloud? Where were you to parent them while it was happening? Sometimes the fault is our own.

I wasn't there. And of course I couldn't ground my brother but what was he thinking when he pushed him self up he knew the damn couch was broke.

Yes they know its not aloud. I was at the store. Came back put stuff away and when I sat down it sank really far down. I asked them what happens and they all shrugged there shoulders

Guess it's time for a new couch. In the meantime, make them all sit on the floor.
