Grounded All Summer For Not Cleaning My Room

Grounded all summer – what a bummer for having a messy room.

Today on Ask a House Cleaner a kid writes in grounded for not “cleaning my room.” The House Cleaning Guru, Angela Brown gives advice for kids. And tips for parents about grounding, punishment, discipline, and reciprocity.

Clean your room – you don’t get grounded. But it’s more about the privileges associated with obedience than it is the art to negotiate your punishment or make a deal.

Get what you want because you follow the rules and are obedient.
