I'm just curious as to how many teens out there, (or older if you remember back when you had to still listen to parents haha j/k) have been grounded and for how long and for what. personally i've only been grounded twice...once for week in 8th grade...and then more recently (last november) for six months...for having 7 people over when my rents were away (small party) and yea...can't go into more detail, dont wanna get in trouble. just curious as to see if 6 months is as extensive as i thought and as it felt. haha. peace.

can't say i ever got grounded. i would just a whoopin' from my mother. frankly, i would have rather been grounded. but at least the pain from a thwap on the keister goes away faster than 6 months.

my advice is be good. nothing bad happens if you behave yourself. in fact, ppl are more inclined to give you stuff, or so it seems. me, i just got a car two weeks ago. i've been very good for a long time and have been banking up the credits.

I used to be difficult but never got grounded. We did have "time-out" (I still shudder at those words). What my dad did to get me out of my silly stage (about 8th and 9th grade, when I was just generally being a bitch) was to get me BUSY. After that I didn't have time to get up to anything.

And then when I was in 10th grade I took on my first music students - aged 7, 8 and 13. And the younger two could be little terrors, and that made me think like a parent and stop acting like a brat pretty quickly!! (Interestingly, I also used time-out on them!!)

As Gummy said, the easiest thing to do is just behave. Have fun, but don't deliberately break the rules, as it just makes life difficult for everyone.

I've never been grounded before. I haven't been punished since i was about 8 years old. I'm only 15 (almost 16) but i haven't really gone through a "rebellious" stage. I don't get into trouble, and i have no desire to break rules and make people mad. I'm happy with the few rules my parents have and i don't find it difficult to obey them.

I've not been grounded once yet. Instead, my parents used to yell and sometimes hit me, but since now I'm not as much of a bitch they only yell at me from time to time. I have yet to get in really serious trouble.
Yeah, but since my parents are fairly easy-going, I think the only opportunity I'll have to be in trouble is if my g/f stays the night. (And I'd doubt that'll happen anytime soon.)

What do your parents count as "being good"? Because I know I'm a good. I don't smoke, do drugs, drink, stay out too late, or any thing rebellious. I have a limit of things I can do with my friends in a week. Two events are ok, but three is pushing it, and I'm 16 years old! I do a bunch of chores including laundry, dishes, and general cleaning. But I'm grounded constantly over stupid things.

Like last Christmas. I was grounded November, December, and January because I had a D in algebra 2 on my progress report. It wasn't even my report card! (It was a very high D, one more point and it would've been a C) The catch is that I was grounded from my computer and phone, and this was over the 3 week Christmas break, so I had to write letters to my friends just to communicate with the outside world.

Not too mention the millions of times I've been grounded from my computer and the few times I've got my butt whipped.

It's just a little extreme to me. but enough ranting...

(youngmorpher, your parents shouldn't be hitting you; that's abusive behavior and flat-out not ok, regardless of how softly or hard they may be hitting. I don't want to make you feel uncomfortable for posting or focus on it, but at least give you an opportunity to talk about it if you'd like. How old with you, and how much more school do you have ahead of you?)
