When we were young, parents could tell us we were "grounded" and it meant something specific: stay home on weekend nights, no fun. But as with everything, things change.
What is "grounding" in 2011? What is the type of problem that would make you ground a child -- poor grades, disrespect, lying about something? And what exactly does it involve: some physical labor to get the point of punishment across, or just being banned from fun activities for awhile?
Now, unless you take away the cell phone and the computer, kids have access to the friends 24-7. Is grounding still an option?
