View Full Version : How often do you get grounded/detention?
May 18th, 2009, 01:20 PM
Well guys! Let's enumerate the past before we continue to our summer lives (good for you, in the Philippines it's almost the end of summer vacation *sniff)
How often do you get grounded by your parents / get detention from your teachers?
As for me? I never get grounded at home, but i receive detention at school if my friends go into trouble (because they're always with me XD) :)
How's the detention room going?

My vacation doesn't start until late June. >:o
Anyways, I haven't gotten detention in a long time. Last year, maybe? Although that was only for lateness.
As for getting grounded? My parents don't believe in that sort of thing. I've only been grounded twice in my whole life and both times it backfired. Even so, I haven't done anything worth grounding for in years. I'm a good girl :3

Detention: A few times last year for not doing my homework

I never get detention because my school is pretty damn bad. It takes a lot for you to get detention. XD;
At home I never get grounded because my parents are super easy-going. I've done/do some things that I'm sure would get most kids grounded. :x

I never get grounded and I never have.
I have only got detentin once, but that was a class detention, and i've not done anything wrong....Yet.
May 18th, 2009, 03:39 PM
I never had detention and the last time a got grounded was 3 years ago
May 18th, 2009, 03:45 PM
I've never gotten detention at school, and I've never been "grounded" really, but have had stuff like my computer taken away for a while =(
May 18th, 2009, 03:52 PM
I used to get detentions quite a lot at school. I wouldn't go to them, or I would talk my way out of them. Eventually they just gave up, but I stopped giving them reasons to give me them so much aswell; it all worked out.

I lived out my childhood without either, though grounding wasn't a type of punishment my parents used, anyway. I for one am the type who fears trouble or conflict above most anything else (and anything bad I do, I always get caught, plus I have a very guilty conscience), so as a result, I'm about as goody-goody as they come.

I've never been officially grounded; my parents are just strict. They may yell at me, take away my electronics/internet, or forbid me from leaving the house. However, I don't see it as being ground. I'm building character. :^D
At school, I've never had detention. However, I had to do trash duty once. I was listening to my iPod and a teacher took it away. There were times in middle school where I was caught having a sticker of a gun on one of my notebooks. I got in trouble again. 8D

I tend not to get grounded, by my parents are rather strict, they tend to guilt trip, mock me and insult me, more than anything. Hahaa. I once lost all access to my computer for about four or five months though, that drove me insane. Now, they only take it away for a week at most as I drive them insane when I don't have it.
As for school? We don't get after school detentions here, but I have had one (yeah, only one XD) lunch time detention.. which was entirely my fault, really. Things weren't good at school, or at home at the time and I turned around and cussed out this bimbo in my Art class, thus getting me sent out of the class for half the lesson. XD Never said I was bright. XD;;
But, all in all, I tend to be generally well behaved. =P No rebellions over here... well, except for all the bad stuff I've done that my Parents would KILL me for, if they knew I'd done it.
And yeah, tl;dr post much?

I've only been grounded once, and I don't exactly remember why. It didn't last that long, though. (It's been many years ago.)
As for detentions, I never had one. I always behaved really well in school.
May 18th, 2009, 07:21 PM
Umm.. if I do baaaad stuff they take away my internet. I sometimes get a little angry *blush*
Detention. A bit of a class detention.. That's it. Since I get good marks, I get away with loads of stuff. :P

I've never been caught on any of the bad stuff I've done. XD
May 18th, 2009, 09:09 PM
Never that I can remember of. Plus I'm happy being at home so XD
May 18th, 2009, 09:18 PM
Lolz. I have a detention today. And tommorow. xP In all, ive had many detention, and mostly for ''Sassing'' them, or backchatting. Ie: '' If you keep doing this in life---'', Me: I have a life. You should get one. . That earned me two, and i swore at the music teacher, which made me get hit with a weeks worth. D:. I get grounded a heap, but thankfully have a back up laptop in my room. :D They dont know about it, as i told theem it broke. xD

I haven't been sent to detention since the 9th grade, and that time it wasn't even for something I did (stupid security guards). I usually get grounded whenever my grades are really bad.
May 18th, 2009, 11:13 PM
I rarely get grounded? No seriously, the only time I ever get grounded is when I made the grades that I did last quarter(which, you don't want to know).
Detention? I've gotten enough detentions in my life to make sure that I never do the same thing again. >>
May 18th, 2009, 11:34 PM
At times, I get detentions, at other times, I get referrals or warnings. XD The truth is, I love to piss off my teachers, excluding the fun ones.
My parents are afraid of grounding me. It's highly dangerous to contain me in one place for too long. I lose control and spaz beyond reality.
May 18th, 2009, 11:39 PM
I've never gotten detention before, but as for being grounded... Yeah.
I don't really get grounded unless I tick my mom off. I don't really even talk to her so it's good.
May 19th, 2009, 12:08 AM
Never since I don't live at home and I don't go to school anymore. XD
May 19th, 2009, 12:11 AM
Since I don't live at home any more and lectures don't give you detention, never! XD
May 19th, 2009, 12:26 AM
I never get grounded. I'm a good teenager.
And I have only had one detention this year and I had it because my dad drove me to school late one week I didn't have my car. :|
May 19th, 2009, 12:42 AM
to be honest...i had detention (in school) only once....i dont do anything at school so i never get in trouble...guess there is a benefit form being lazy..
May 19th, 2009, 12:48 AM
Never, because I know how to not piss off adults and lie when the occasion calls for it.
Also, while I do like to hang out with friends, I am perfectly capable of entertaining myself at home and I don't feel the need to be in contact with other people 24/7. So I don't think grounding would be a very effective punishment in my case, although I wouldn't know because it has never happened to me. =D
May 19th, 2009, 01:38 AM
Grounded, sometimes when I do something bad Dx.
Detention, never/never will! I never had a detention in my life.
May 19th, 2009, 01:42 AM
There's no such thing as "grounded" for my family, only lectures.
Detentions... I don't get them, ever. I'm a GOOD boy!
May 19th, 2009, 01:42 AM
My parents often take away my computer, but they're not gonna lock me up at home and say I can't leave. I'd be like meh and go on the computer. xD
I haven't got detention for a while at school, partly because last year I didn't show up enough to get detention and this year I'm in year 12 they haven't given any detentions really.
May 19th, 2009, 02:30 AM
I haven't had detention alll year long, so hooorahh for that! Not that I've had many detentions; I can count them all on my two hands.
Been grounded a couple times, but not recently. It's usually for reasons that I don't agree with, such as doing my homework on a Sunday and not a Saturday (which I almost got grounded for today but got out of it) or not making my bed/picking up my room. Last realllll grounding was back in early '08. I forgot about a science project (still got an A though, Mom!). :3
May 19th, 2009, 02:44 AM
Well, if you ask me. :)
May 19th, 2009, 09:26 AM
When I lived with my parents, I got grounded every 3 seconds. Or at least it felt that way.
May 19th, 2009, 09:32 PM
The answer for me, is I never get grounded or detention.... I'm too much on an Angel. xD
May 19th, 2009, 11:30 PM
I get detention all the time. My teacher are idiots and hate me, I mean, they really just plain hate me. I actually have only ever been to one detention, because I skip them most the time, as I said, the teachers are stupid and forget the next day. In all fairness, I did call one of them retarded and flipped him off... my bad.
I never get grounded at home. My Parents are great =D
May 19th, 2009, 11:57 PM
Grounded? My mother has given up on me. She doesn't bother anymore.
As for detention...I've only had it once.
I skipped school and a the teacher found out. I to serve three hours.
He only knew I skipped because I had spoken to him earlier that day. >.>;;
Did I learn my lesson? No. :\
May 20th, 2009, 12:49 AM
I have never been "grounded". Sure my parents take away some of my activities, and limit things, but I have never been technically grounded. Detentions, my school never really had detention though I did have to stay in for recess once for ignoring a teacher. ¬_¬ I highly doubt that I'll be receiving a detention any time soon though.
May 20th, 2009, 01:30 AM
Heh, never. Never been grounded, had my phone taken away, etc. Nor detention either.
May 20th, 2009, 01:32 AM
never, i am pretty well behaved everywhere. The last time I was grounded is when I was 6, O_O.
May 20th, 2009, 04:49 AM
As nerdy as this may sound, I get a detention maybe once a term at school. But heaps of gum-cleaning duty, which doesn't count as detention, but is more or less worse.
As for getting grounded, it feels like a routine. I get grounded, I be nice again, I get grounded. This goes on for two weeks at a time, and then a unknown period of space in between.
May 20th, 2009, 05:00 AM
I never get grounded :P and never will, detention always :D I'm always get in trouble.
May 24th, 2009, 01:05 PM
No believe it or not I dont get grounded, my parents would feed guilt into me, and most of the time I got detention because of the teachers being so stupid
May 30th, 2009, 11:25 PM
I only get grounded every once in awhile, but that's only under extreme circumstances on my part and getting anything less than an A unless my mom knows I really struggled in that class.
I never get detention. Never have, never will. Because if I do I'll get grounded, and starting next school year(we only have one day left), it'll go on my permanent record and I can not have that happen. Plus the only way I'll ever get detention is if I'm accidently late to a class twice.
May 31st, 2009, 04:41 AM
I rarely get grounded, but I am "grounded" as I'm typing this; I can still use the computer, so I don't count is as an official grounding.
As for detentions.... barely. I'm not the type that would get in trouble in school anyway.
