Well, you should tell them what you did wrong and promise them that you won't do it again. Maybe you should volunteer to do some chores to gain some more trust. This worked for me! Hope it does for you! :D

try acting really upset that you got it and really sad and that you hate it when mistakes like this happen to you. Then they will go easier on you

Tell them. Also, I personally think its wrong for parents to yell that their kids. Even to get a point across. Ever.

None. But I have experienced so much yelling. Its not right. It's not even okay. you can be stern, you can be harsh. You cannot yell.

Easy if your teacher or school staff sends you a paper that your parents have to sign put a piece of paper on top of it and tell them to sign there if u don't have a paper then be kind and nice to them! :)

Say that you signed up for a after school activity... Like yearbook, and such... I wouldn't say any sports, cuz u don't want them wanting to go see you on a game or something lol

Most disciplinarians go a lot easier on the culprit who is already punishing himself. If they think you don't really care, they will make you care. If they think you are being too hard on yourself, they will be easier on you/defend you against yourself. It was always fun to see this actually work for me in my life.

First, everything depends on what you got detention for. If you ate some kid's pet hamster and did it at lunch after asking him to pass the salt, then you're in trouble for cause and your problems are worse than detention. If for something minor--talking in class, etc, then you're facing a problem where your parents reaction is unwarranted and needs to be managed. If your parents have a history of seeing you as a problem, or not supporting you when others find fault with you, and especially if when youve done something they dont like, they take the opportunity to yell at you, then look to see whether you can simply not reveal the situation. If you have to, then I agree with some others here: say how terrible you feel over and over ...

I dont know how old you are but all i ever hear from my kids is im old enough to do this or that. Well here is your chance to show them you can be an adult about situations you get yourself into. Be an adult. Good Luck

Its true, thats what parents look for in their children. It inda shows them you will be able to handle things the right way when theyre gone.

I am really sorry I know what it is like to have yelling parents ha , ha but you get use to it. Just tell them fast what happened. It is never good to lie about it cause then you are just digging a deeper whole and you would make it harder on yourself.
