Grounding is a common punishment for children (especially older children aged 7 and up for any misbehavior). In some cases, it is suggested as an alternative to corporal punishment or spanking in the home. Typically a child or a teenager who is grounded is not allowed to leave their room and/or their house with the exception of required activities such as education (in school unless if a child gets an out of school suspension or expulsion), chores (such as mowing the lawn, in-house chores such as washing the dishes, doing laundry, etc.), meals, church, doctor appointments, funerals, and other activities.
