Oh, yes, all the time!!  The last time was Sunday.  My 9 yo threw a toy at my 7 yo and my 7 yo kicked her.  So they were grounded for a couple of hours.  The most I've grounded them for is a week.  The only one I haven't grounded long-term is my 6 yo bc she is the calmer one of the three.

I don't think you can raise a child correctly without using discipline.

yes but we use it very infrequently, being grounded is a BIG DEAL and we save it for big things, or when misbehavior is ongoing and other punishments haven't worked

yep. I ground my 7 yr old for her attitude mainly. Usually it just means no tv. She has also gotten grounded from gum for getting it in her hair after mom asking her several times not to play with it.

Yes..Derek and Thomas don't like it and learn their lesson.  Unfortunately, Will has been grounded A LOT but doesn't seem to care.  He continues his bad behavior.

yep, I ground my boys from their weekend at grandmas. They love going so the thought of missing out is always enough for an attitude adjustment. Only joey has had to stay home more then once.
