My parents have never been into grounding. If they were I would probably be a lot more disagreeable with them now, so I think we both agree that it was a good decision.
Ahmed, don't mess with Massachusetts!

grounding works for the girls........cause they want to do stuff and i dont budge when i ground them....Kate knows all she has to do is get good grades and do her chores and ill give her about as much freedom to run as she wants.....but if she aint going to do that she aint going to run......i give her a decent length leash, if she chooses to hang herself with it thats her decision....she tried to threaten me once saying she COULD be much worse.....i just looked her in the eye and said so COULD i.....and thatwas the end of it....
um, one bad grade and you ground them? That leash is choking them. Do you know how stressful that would be if they had a huge project? it is stressful enough for me even if I wouldn't be grounded.
one bad grade on their quarterly report card.....not one flunked test, not one flunked quiz.......both girls are smart neither of them are taking calculus yet.....the wife and i got through this school system with one grade on a quarter report card being lower than a C and neither of us were the valedictorian, book worm type....both of us were serious partiers yet in 24 report cards, and between us out of 179 quarter end class grades i had 1 D and my wife had all A's but 1 B and she took a precalc class over the summer so she could take a calc class her senior year, i skipped pre calc and went straight to calc......if the girl's mother and i can do it, be partying every weekend, working more or less full time hours on top of it cause we didnt do sports......well lets say my sympathy is low when we help them EVERY time they ask cause they dont understand something.....this crap aint rocket science
I am talking D, not and F. A D is a passing grade and not being able to play sports is a bad enough punishment already. You can't compare your grades to your kids to, different teachers, different classes, and different books. I also don't believe anyone got only 1 B in their ENTIRE high school years. 1 bad grade isn't going to hurt anyone.
I consider a D a bad grade, even if you can still pass O_o
dude can i have some of what your smoking? had 7 do ALL A's in my graduating class of 62 and one do all A's and 1 B.....most of them while taking college prep classes that were actually harder than freshman year of college.....I also don't believe anyone got only 1 B in their ENTIRE high school years.
a D aint passing.......a D is barely better than flipping a coin to decide your answers.......and i can compare them to me and their mom.....both girls are quite smart.....they have every opportunity to get help if they need it......to get a D means they CHOSE not to get help....if they are going to make that kinda choice they dont need to be out running with friends....BTW neither of them have been grounded because of grades yet.......
huh? then how did the "I can be much worse" thing happen? I aint talking averages, I mean grades per quiz.
