My 14yr old son has been very disrespectful and dishonest towards the whole family for awhile now. He stood up to me today and I told him to stay outside in the backyard until he can apologize. He came in to apologize but instead of apologize he told 3 more lies about various topics. So.. I told him "as a matter of fact , why don't you just sleep out there and give yourself some one on one time to think about your actions." He started screaming at me so I proceeded to grab his blankets and a few pillows and told him that he can sleep outside on the trampoline . (we live in southern California so its not very cold yet.) Not sure if its a good decision...I feel bad but I really don't want the behavior to escalate and this was a shocker for him. Any advice or others who made their teen sleep out side would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
