ANSWER #2 of 12

I am a mom of a 15 year old boy who has gotten dentention a few times over the last 3 years. I have never been pleased that he got detention because I wasnt happy that he had made a poor choice in his behavior. But, the worst thing was the time he tried to hide it from me...with the cooperation of his pricipal! Show your mom that you are growing up. just as Sue said above, let her know what you did and the lesson you have learned. then understand she may still be angry. but taking responsibility for your actions and accepting any additional punishment your mom may give you without freaking out will show her you truly did learn your lesson and you are growing up! that is something she will see and in the long run it can have a really positive effect on how she relates to you. just dont deceive will only cause harm to your relationship, and will have the opposite effect that you are looking the long run. good luck !

How do I get rid of my Mom's boyfriend?

ANSWER #3 of 12

Dear gates,
I run a detention program so I know you got a detention for something that you have done that was against the school rules. So, start by telling your mother how you have learned a new lesson. Explain what you got the detention for and how you now know what the proper behaviours are. Adults love when kids have leaned from their mistakes.
Sue...good luck

How do I ask my mom for a bra without actually asking her
ANSWER #12 of 12

I've gotta detention today for chucking stuff in class. The boy I fancies best mate threw a bit of ham sandwich at my best friend, she threw some paper back. Then my crush threw some popcorn at me, so I threw some paper as well. But I only threw it once and then like 12 others joined in. We all got an after school detention for 20 minutes. My crush said because it doesn't say that your parents need to sign the letter we got, so just say I've got some homework to do with a study party. I'm worried about telling her. If I do, I'm sure she won't get angry, just punish me, and she'll be disappointed in me. If I hide it from her, then she finds out, she'll be more mad. I hate it when she's disappointed in me. I'm always super good. Till lately, I lost some of my pocket money, got told of for writing notes in class three times, and this is my second detention, but my only after school one. Then this supple teacher said that they would go on my reports for the rest of my life and I might not get into college, university or get a good job. I'm only 12 and all my teachers adore me! What's gotten into me, how do I tell my Mum, what should I do?
