Default I am grounding my kids from trick or treating

Warning after warning after warning. I leave to meet up with some friends. Wife calls to tell me kids just got into a fight. Daughter shoved my son. He flips over backwards and slams his head just shy of a table. Son whips tv remote at sister....misses and shatters the glass in a picture frame.

At this point I just ground them. We attended a Halloween party Saturday nite. Couldn't find a sitter so I dish out another warning. If you screw up at all tonight kiss Halloween goodbye. Well. Apparently they got into a scuffle over a stationary bike. Son wanted to ride the bike. Daughter yanks him off the bike ripping his costum we just bought. So in return pulls on his sisters costum and rips hers too.......

How long past Halloween should I keep them grounded?

Sounds like a 2 week minimum to me, month if the costumes were expensive.

You need to buy a set of those blow up boxing gloves !!!

Dave, let them go out, but just don't tell them that their punishment is that mommy and daddy get the proceeds.

I don't know about you, but grounding for an extended period of time usually caused us more pain then the children....

As part of punishment make them hand out candy. As a rule on groundings when damage is done I have them stay grounded until they do enough work around the house to pay for the damaged items. Set prices and the goal amount in the beginning. Not only does it teach them it was wrong, but it also teaches them the value of a buck.

Damn I use to fight like that with my sister about 5 years ago. I always tried, but always lost. I would get the shit beat outta me cause I was so small and it was three girls against me. Then I would get grounded and get in trouble because they all would "testify" against me.

Parents didn't teach you very well if you were punching your sisters.
