What's the longest time you've ever been grounded?

<p>I guess you could call this grounding, my friends were caught drinking by some cops. Parents had to pick us all up, I couldn't drive my car after 9PM for the rest of the summer (like a week left). It was practically nothing, but I've learned my lesson, no drinking in "public" areas at night.</p>

<p>I was grounded from birth till death</p>

<p>I don't get grounded, I get beat by my parents. I kid, I kid. I don't get "grounded" and my parents usually don't care what I do as long as I get the grades.</p>

Is this much grounding normal for someone who doesn't have any behavioral issues? What's the longest you've ever been grounded for and what did you do??

<p>Your parents are ridiculous dude. Its not normal, they are retarded for sheltering you so much</p>

<p>Longest i've been grounded was a week or so, in elementary.</p>

<p>My curfew is midnight on school nights (unless I call and tell them im staying longer) and 3AM on weekends (unless i call and tell them im staying longer)</p>

<p>0 days and 0 hours and 0 minutes</p>

<p>My parents are Asian. I'm grounded forever.</p>

<p>At home, I didn't have a curfew (largely because I didn't stay out too late of my own accord), so then when I did want to stay out, I could stay out until like 6 AM only by asking.</p>

<p>I'm now at a boarding school, and, if I take privs (privelages), I can stay out until 10 on weeknights. If I don't, i have to be back by 8. (how many nights per week you have privs is determined by GPA)</p>

<p>(the high school is located on a college campus, so they're WAYYYY overprotective).</p>

<p>Pretty much the same as jcsmooth.</p>

<p>I've never been grounded. My parents are usually really laid back, even about grades. As long as they're content that we're doing our best and staying out of trouble, my parents are pleased. </p>

<p>I do have somewhat of a curfew. I can't really be out after 10 on school nights, and I'm kinda free to stay up to whenever I want on weekends, but I can't be out alone and I'm definitely not allowed to drink or party. Usually, if I do go out, I hang at a friend's house, go to the mall, or am somewhere with my boyfriend, whom they trust, so once again, usually not an issue here.</p>

<p>Though, my sister used to get in trouble a lot, and they went so far as to nail her window shut and tie a string to her doorknob so she couldn't sneak out at night. My parents aren't really lax with rules, I just never do anything to get in trouble.</p>

<p>When I was a little kid, I used to get spankings, then when I was about 12-15 I got grounded. I don't get punished now-a-days because I don't do anything really that bad. When I do stay out too late or something, though, I get yelled at. There is no really punishment, luckily. The longest I got grounded for was a week when I was 13 for some distasteful magazines. ;-)</p>

<p>@ the OP: wow, your parents are made of fail...</p>

<p>I have never been grounded. My curfew is 10pm on weeknights, 1 on weekends.</p>

<p>Your parents are nazis. Seriously grounding kids that much kills their self-esteem.</p>

<p>that's some intense grounding! 5/12???</p>

<p>I don't get grounded either. mostly because I have almost no free time, so there's no point for my parents to ground me.</p>

<p>i got grounded for 2 weeks for "talking back to my mom"</p>

<p>i'm a good kid though, I don't drink or do drugs, and just hang out with my friends on weekends, but because of the MA driving laws, (can't be driving past 12:30), my curfew is like 11:30</p>
