So just out of interest, anyone here ever been grounded or had detention? If so, what for and for how long?

I've never been grounded but I was made to stay in for like 5 minutes of break once to finish homework, barely long enough to call that a detention.

I'd add a poll but I don't see any option for that in the app.

I was given detention because my art work was not good enough. Not happy about that.

I'd f**king flip, where abouts did this happen? I'm pretty sure any parent in Scotland would be pretty annoyed.

To be honest I probably got grounded as a little kid, not for many many years though. I'm too socially awkward to behave badly at school and therefore have never had a detention.

I remember once in primary school though getting into trouble for being rude to another kid my age (would have been about 6)... just got shouted at by a dinner lady though!!

I never had a detention :smug:

Although my art teacher tried to as my work wasnt 'good enough' even though I'm colourblind. After that, I just did my Maths homework in art lessons. She left me to it.

I probably was grounded at some point, but not what I can remember.

After school. The work was to get leaves and draw them, so I was forced to go and get new leaves from outside the school and draw them again, so this took over 30 minutes

It is **** to be honest, and an unusual reason for giving detention but at that age, 12, I never thought much of it.

Lol primary schools don't really do detention except for year 6 when they prepare you for year 7, that's if the detention is necessary anyway not just randomly given out like sweets XD

My form tutor in year 9 tried giving the whole class a 50 minute detention because our substitute teacher for history didn't turn up. A few students from the class had left and when they came back they said they had told a teacher and it was being dealt with. So obviously nobody else did anything because why would we if it was being dealt with. They were lying - they had told no teacher and nobody knew we were unsupervised in a classroom. When my dad found out and the other parents they were all furious. After long phone calls with my form tutor, he eventually cancelled the detention.

I never had a detention whilst at school. Proud of that, weirdly.

Whilst I've never really had a detention (I ain't counting that 5 minutes thing), or been grounded, I now feel that I could've perhaps lightened my childhood years up a bit by being a bit of a rebel, but nothing so serious to get me a detention or grounding.

Lol yeah that's true, loads of people in my "RIOT CLASS" got detention at the end of primary... it didn't change them. They were still a riot when they went to secondary.

Somehow your comment there reminded me of something in high school, I think it was year 8 or 9. Basically the whole class was being given a break, lunchtime and after school detention all in the same day because of something everyone was involved in, but not me. When the teacher said it I kind of sighed and the teacher was then like "Except you" to me lol. Dodged a bullet there.

Thats true I guess. I could of 'lived a bit more' and still have got to where I am now (Currently doing an MA )

It might have helped me socially too, as tbf I was socially withdrawn as a teen and to some extent I am now. Ah well, least I gave my parents a good reason to go to parents evening unlike my sister (sometimes) :lol:

If I was given detention and made to paint a picture I'd paint this...

Generally doesn't really matter to students anyway, the way I would look at it if I got a detention is it's the school's time they're wasting, seeing as the only thing I'd be doing on a break is hanging about in the playground, bored as phones were banned, and I'd rather be inside anyway. I was socially awkward so didn't really spend time with my mates much during breaks. The only detention that would bother me would be an after school one

I was close to getting a lunchtime one myself when I put over the menu sign that said "Lunchtimes are fun" I replaced the word "fun" with a "boring" label, the only reason I got out of it is because the dinner ladies weren't allowed to give detentions and couldn't be bothered to chase up my form tutor. I only did it because it was a dare.

Yeah, I would hate an after school detention too. At break/lunch I kinda wouldn't care in a way either, seeing as I'm Mrs No Mates most of the time anyway aha (and particularly after the summer when all my friends leave and I can't because of only being 15)!! Haha, still don't want a detention though!!

Lol yeah. And even if it's a lunch detention, you still have to have time to eat so it'd most likely be in the staff room where the teachers eat their dinner.
