Hey all, im OP (although as my first time ever commenting, I hope this actually works!) Of course, in the end, my daughter fell asleep. although it was around 1am, a time I thought no five year old was physically capable of acheiving. You might say it was almost worse the next day, as she was very grumpy and tired! I forbid my son from attending a party (supposedly the 'party of the year'), and have spoken to his school who are arranging a meeting with him to discuss ways of bettering his home

That's what I thought. Or OP should sit her daughter down and explain everything - saying that she can fall asleep and nothing will happen and tell her that it was just a joke.

Guys! He is 17, almost an adult. You think ground someone at this age would have any kind of effect except insulting him?

You can't get brain damage though if you don't get enough sleep your brain starts acting like your drunk... You judgment gets worse... And at an extreme you start to hallucinate... But it is all reversible so nothing permanent

to get to that stage takes a great deal of mental strength and concentration, and somehow I don't think a five year old is capable of that kind of brain power

Yeah, every time I change Justin Bieber's page to say he's gay, their fact checkers change it back almost immediately. They're in denial of the truth.

It's not totally reliable, but it's not too bad - good enough to stand comparison with the Britannica. The was a test done, and WP had, on average, 4 errors for every 3 that EB had. Just don't use it as your sole source of info - use it for a quick heads-up, then look at the article sources and their background.

Great idea except for one major problem - concussions DO NOT MAKE YOU DIE if you fall asleep. This myth drives me absolutely nuts.

Reply

Unfortunately, medical personal implications keep the myth alive. While I wasn't told point-blank that if my son fell asleep, he would die, I do remember being strongly cautioned not to let him fall asleep for a certain amount of time after the concussion. Imagination runs its course. My assumption is that the sleep to the lay person looks just like unconsciousness and masks other stuff that requires immediate medical attention, but it would have been nice to be told that instead of just leavin

#3 Doc's right, but they do cause memory loss (sometimes permanent) if severe enough. Besides, that's just abuse, I worry about your kids (if you ever have them. Oh God, Timmy forgot to take the trash out again, I guess he loses his left hand this time. Pay back's a bitch.

Sorry guys, I didn't know that that was a myth... My bad. I got a concussion a few years ago and I wasn't allowed to sleep for 24 hours cause they thought I'd die in my sleep. And no, I don't actually recommend op giving his son a concussion, it was a joke. A lousy one yes, but I'm never going to say I'm funny haha

You could send him to Juvenal, but the big J has been dead for several centuries. You could always make him read him, though.

I guess every child who believes in Santa Clause, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny is just faking then, hmm?

Whether you think it was clever or not he still mildly traumatised a little girl when she is completely innocent seeing as it was the parent he wanted revenge on, and the parent that grounded him .

If he was my son, he'd be grounded from much more than video games and a computer for this little stunt. It's awful to torment a child as revenge.

he's 17. it's not a very hard concept for people to think of, and you seem to underestimate the power of the teenage brain.

Ah, this brings back memories. Though my sleepless nights were more due to Freddy Krueger than anything else. I'd wear my shoes to bed so I could run faster if he started chasing me in my dreams. I was a genius.

One time in college, I had a dream that I was being chased by Freddy Krueger. Toward the end I started fighting him and I woke up kicking the concrete wall next to my bed. I believe this was soon after I purchased a Nightmare on Elm Street DVD set at Wally World. What a coincidence!

hence why I like the literal term of bedroom..... A room with ONLY a bed (barred windows as well)
