If you're unfamiliar with the premise of "The Middle," it is not that difficult to grasp. It is a comedy about the Heck family. Husband Mike and wife Frankie live normal lives in the midwest with their three children. Well, I say normal because they are usually typical situations that I think all of us can relate to at one point or another. Season two was chalked full of interesting storylines that were just as interesting as season one! It is definitely worth your time to keep up with the Hecks!
"After Axl leaves his dirty smelly socks lying around the house one too many times, Mike punished his son by banning him from playing his basketball team's final game. Given the Heck legacy on the basketball team, do you think it was the best decision? Have you ever, or had a parent, give the time that didn't fit the crime? Were you able to get out of it and how?"
I personally think that is a HUGE punishment for leaving smelly socks around. I can empathize that dirty clothes lying around is annoying, but that seems like too big of time for the crime. I would have not offered to feed him or hid all of his clothes/socks until he was willing to change the sock problem.
And my kids are little, so their "punishments" aren't too extreme. And when I was a teenager, my groundings weren't really that big of a deal, so I didn't consider them punishments. Although I did hate it when my dad said, "don't plan on leaving the house for a long time." What's that supposed to mean??
