  • yup, every I turned around I was grounded for something. I was always folding the towels wrong or not getting up all the cat hair when I vacuumed. Sometimes I would look at my mom the wrong way or say something out of turn. Sometimes I got ground for things the kids up the street did so I would learn never to do it or turn out like them.

  • If I ever did get grounded two hours later my parents let me go and play, I was a good and calm child so I didn't really get into much trouble and when I did do something I wasn't supposed to do I made sure I didn't get cought.

  • I was grounded most of my It started out when I was 11, I got grounded for coming home late. After that, I was told I would be grounded until I gain 10 pounds (I was a very skinny kid...underweight). After that Idk what happened...I was grounded until I was 18 but that's because I'm not joking. I could barely go outside...curfew was after school. No going to friends at all.

  • Hey, Anon sure you aren't me? heh. I got grounded for every little thing my whole 18 years of being trapped in that bio mother thought parenting meant controlling, plus she's mentally ill. I learned how NOT to treat my Child and Husband..the only thing she ever taught me.

  • I was grounded alot when i was little but it was for fighting with my sister or acting up when i was out at the store. When i got older i was in trouble for my grades. Never grounded but i got my phone taken away. Then i got my car and my mom would try to take my phone then give it back because i was driving to school and work and she wanted me to be able to call if something happened. So her punishment never lasted for more then an hour when i was older. And when i was younger it was only for a few days.

  • I used to accuse my parents of buying me things just so they'd have more things to ground me from.

  • No. My older brother and sister were, so I made sure to not do the stupid things they did. My younger brother was grounded a lot too. He's an idiot though.
