I have 3 children aged 13 - 21 - be very careful that your punishment doesn't punish you too!!! It's all very well grounding your kids but then you have to be there to ensure the punishment is carried out which effectively grounds you too. I always found (find) that depriving them of a favorite thing be it toy, computer game, bike, pocket money - to be returned only once behaviour has changed and genuine remorse shown works well - if behaviour continues take something else for each misdemeanor as behaviour improves return ONE thing at a time never give it all back at once for obvious reasons!!!
