When a mom catches her son using his phone after bedtime, a rule he knew was strictly not allowed.
She took the appropriate steps and grounded him. She set out punishments where he could amend his wrong doing by earning points.
The goal he needed to reach to annul the punishment was 500 points.
His mother gave him the option of choosing what chores he would do.
She created a clever list of numerous household chores and little jobs he could do around the house, each offering different point values.
This is the list she wrote:
