I've been over & over this with him about rock throwing. He was over his *friends* & apparently they were throwing rocks at moving cars. His punishment is harsh.

That sucks :( I have a 9 year old son who doesn't always make the best choices.  I feel like every time I tell him NOT to do something ( and the reason why) it makes him want to do it even more.  What was his punishment?

He's grounded for 2 weeks. No playstation, no friends. He is going to learn what it is to clean. I am going to make him write sentences...not how many yet. If he thought he hated me before (obviously I've been too easy), he's really gonna hate me now. He could've caused a major accident.

I think I might take up your punishment for my 8 year old who is loving to steal things and claim them as hers and getting into things that dont belong to her

That punishment is definitely appropriate, and I hope he learns his lesson from it.

I'm also relieved that no one was hurt this time.

Quoting melissa632:

Show him this article:

Not only can he hurt someone, but someone can go after HIM and he may not like what happens.

 A few years ago, I was in Germany where my dad was stationed.  3 American boys were on an overpass, dropping rocks.  They caused a huge accident and the death of a young mother.  In addition to that the relations between the locals and the Americans were so strained we couldn't leave housing except to got the base for quite awhile.  Those boys were taken by the German authorities to be jailed and tried.  I never heard what happened from there.

I hope he learned his lesson. That is not something to fool around with.

wow that is serious, the punismnent should be very harsh , i think everyone handles their kids differently, i think a sit down , talk out the problem , then in our house his butt would feel the heat lol, the message is clear then, he would understand it was no joke also , just my opinion.
