Tell me some of the reasons why you got grounded as a kid?

I wasn't grounded a lot as a kid, I was way too boring even as a Teen haha no drugs, no guys no alcohol etc...

For me it was:

- Coming back home past my curfew (although I used to play next to the house when I was between 8-12

- Drawing and doodling instead of studying when I had exams ( 9- 11)

- Saying racist things when I was 12 (basically someone said something racist to me and I got so enraged I started saying racist things about his race. When I repeated the racist things in front of my Dad he got so upset he yelled at me and grounded me :'( (No the race wasn't black or white, or Latina, or Asian...). But he was right.

- Spending 9 hours in swimming pool without interruption to the point of getting skin irritation from the chlorine.

What about you, hopefully there are some fun stories!

  • Believe it or not, but I was grounded before for doing too many chores. To this day, I have a tendency to overwork myself and always perform chores even if they do not need to be done. Eventually it got to the point where my parents had to tell me NOT to do them unless they ask--which did not work--so finally after many warnings they had to punish me.

    • Hahah wow I'm sure many parents would be happy to have a kid who overdoes chores!!!

  • Failure to uphold my responsibilities. Getting in fights. Disobeying my parents or older brother (who at a certain age became my babysitter and kind of my dad's lieutenant).

    • You're too nice to be the type to be grounded for selling cocaine in school or running away from home :P !

    • Show All
    • haha I know lol ! Much less the rich kids who used to sell cocaine in school ( this French Rich kid in my HS was caught selling cocaine) I was like wuuut... bruh you're rich af lol

    • Lol damn rich kids usually have parents that will bail them out in any situation and think they are invicible just cuz mommy and daddy are rich. Happens here in the US too.

  • Got grounded for throwing toilet paper out of a 1st floor (2nd floor US) window.

    Me and my sister were setting it on fire before throwing it.

    Which reminds me of when me and my sister were playing with matches years earlier when we were really young. I got punished by having my hand held over the stove while my sister watched terrified. Obviously that didn't work as punishment.

  • As a Latina, that's not the typical method. The only rare times getting grounded was for stupid things such as not knowing how to operate the remote control or being curious about something my parents threw in the garbage and I wanted to know what it was. Basically, for no reason at all.

    By the time both spanking and grounding stopped already for the longest... it was my father yelling and getting called names every time I made a mistake (not intentional either, just silly mistakes) and one of them was already in a bad mood.

    • Ironically when I was in 8th grade and really got suspended for 5 years for taking a package of graphic CD's because some jerk told me to do it, nothing happened at home. I was forgiven that day right away.

    • lol... I meant 5 days.

  • Lol grounded? That sort of punishment doesn't exist in the Caribbean...
    I would get slapped into another century :D and I can still get slapped even at this age...
    Anyway, I would get punished for telling lies, talking back to my mother (my dad didn't slap me growing up, he would just shout at me), being a bitch to my sister (my older sister slapped me even though she wasn't allowed to), and disobeying and talking back my teachers (your primary/prep school teachers were also allowed to slap sense into you, I don't think they do that so much again).

  • They never grounded me.

    But I did get in trouble for some things.

    1. For going to look for dad with my sister and almost getting hit by a truck. (He was in my aunt's house. I forget why we went to look for him since he was going to be home soon anyway)

    2. Failing a test. (When I was 7-8 I used to get test anxiety I think. So instead of answering the questions I would panic and cry.)

  • First I would get my ass whooped with a belt. Then I'd be "put on punishment" for: bad grades, hiding report cards and then lying about when they got distributed, forging signatures, talking back, forgetting to do my chores... I accidentally walked in on my parents fucking once and my father whooped me for it. I got whooped for accidentally kicking a hole in the living room wall... that's pretty much it
