Biz and Theresa wonder who really gets punished when we take away fun things like TV, iPads, toys and special outings? (Short answer: US!) What's so hard about this? Is it just the realization that we now have to fill that time in a different way, or is there something amiss in the way we're doling out punishments in the first place? Plus, Biz gets recognized for her efforts and Theresa gets lazy!
