My 11yo daughter has recently been purposely saying things to embarass her parents, lieing about things she did or didn't do (reading my messages on my phone, not brushing teeth, or making bed) to the point of looking in my eyes and lieing, constantly climbing into my bed when she knows she need to be in her own, manipulating things she has been told to the other parent, and taking things (like the car key) and misplacing them when she shouldn't be touching said item anyway. Last night was the straw that broke the camels back. I was so mad at her, I was seeing stars, and am still physically coming off of it today. I'm fed up. Her dad is fed up. So, our solution is no holds barred grounding. In the past we have grounded her from tv, from electronics--usually for a day or two. This time our plan is to ground her from all of the above, but also ground her to her room which she seems hell bent to stay away from. We told her that it is up to her whether she will be grounded the entire memorial day weekend or not. IF she plays her cards right, and learns from this, she will be off grounding sunday afternoon. If not she will be grounded as long as neccessary including monday, and beyond. I just don't know what more to do.
