When a mother catches her boy using his phone after bedtime, a policy he recognized was strictly not allowed. She took the suitable actions and grounded him. She laid out punishments where he can modify his wrong doing by gaining points.
The objective he needed to reach to annul the penalty was 500 points.
His mommy gave him the option of selecting exactly what duties he would do. She developed a clever checklist of numerous home tasks and also little tasks he might do around your home, each providing various point values.
Here’s what she wrote:
You got grounded!!!
