I grounded my 13 year old son as he failed to come straight home from school after he had been asked to do so. When contacted and told to come home directly decided to walk his friend home first. I grounded him for the weekend but had to go out for half an hour. When I returned he had gone out and was not picking up my calls. When he finally answered, I told him to come home but he cut my call off. He is acting curt, ignores my requests to do things such as chores and homework, and blatantly refuses to do as he is asked on occasions. I do put boundaries in place and give consequences but what do you do when those consequences are ignored?
