Impossible to explain - probably.

Difficult but not impossible for a 12yo to work it out for himself guided my some patient sympathetic facilitation and possibly a bit of role play.

John Boy

While I can't speak for John Boy, I have spoken to Mike on this issue several times, and I still remember some of the problems from my own childhood.

You may not be able to Jack, but I can. All one needs to do is look at my Hypocrite BOTD response. In fact, over half my BOTD's are from me venting to Katz about something unfair or unequal between me and my brother. Whether it is old issues that continue to be a problem or just old memories from my past that have come back. I can't say I had it as bad as grounded for six weeks, but there are many a times I wanted to or even want to put my back to the door, house, family and never look back.

I think we just need to spend some extra time together and talk some things out. I completely agree that different kids need different methods of punishment, but that is nearly impossible to explain to a child.
