So I just turned 18 in august and i just finished highschool last year. Now this morning i went to the orthadantist for the first time in a year to check out my retainer. Turns out because i havent been wearing my retainer religiously my teeth have moved back a bit. Not a huge deal to me but my parents freaked out. So now basically theyre trying to ground me for the weekend. I told them they could go to hell and theres no way im going to stay in on a weekend because they told me to. So then they threatened that if i left the house this weekend im no longer allowed to live in the basement rent free or possibly at all. In most matters i would tell them to go to hell, but in this case i almost see their point. Because they did spend alot of moeny on my braces, but still should i let them keep me under lock and key or leave and risk getting kicked out of the house?

Ask them what the point would be. You're not a kid, you won't learn well by punishment. Don't yell at them (that's what 14 year olds do), just express your opinion that what they're doing seems incredibly pointless etc. And tell them you're sorry.

It seems pretty childish for them to ground you

Though it also seems childish to tell them to go to hell

48 hours? My mum grounds me for months.


Aha my parents have never really grounded me before. Mostly because everytime i did something bad i ended up getting beat up or arrested for it, so they figured i learned my lesson. I guess when i was real little and got into trivial arguments with my mom i used to get grounded but throughout highschool i only got grounded like once.

When in August? I turned 18 in August as well. And yeah, a weekend wont kill you, even though that's lame on their part. I need to wear my retainer more...

I was grounded for 12 weeks because I accidentally (honest) hit my sister in the head with a sky remote and thn snuck off to a rugby game I had just been banned from playing in.

Suck it up. It's one weekend.

test the limits, a lot of parents won't actually go through with a punishment like that, because they wouldn't like the idea of their child having no where to go, it depends what they're like, you could also remind them that you're basically an adult now, and they can't actually ground you, the have barely any control over you now

If you leave, leave as if you're not coming back or are but with their rent demands. Otherwise, take the grounding.

If they paid for your braces and let you live there rent free you shouldn't tell them to go to hell. That's just really ungrateful considering when you turn 18 they can just kick you out on your ass and tell YOU to go to hell.
