You should try and find a way to get out of it...maybe volunteer work a few times a week. See if they are okay with something like this, so they feel like you've learned your lesson, and you're helping the community out in the process.

Should be better behaved!

Don't be an idiot, Don't get GROUNDED. Simple as that my darling!

Playfully or not... Your head was more than correct to kick you poops out of school!

About two years ago read a blog, where a grandfather listed the differences of today's teens and teens of his time.

Among other things, he described exactly this scene as the OP describes it.

Boys are fighting for fun. Even in the 1950s, they would have been called into the principal's office. But he would probably have warned them only urgently or such.

Nowadays, policemen are already being called to school when an 8-year-old boy forms a pistol out of mashed potatoes on his plate in the school cafeteria and shouts Bang Bang . (cited by the blogger)

As far as I remember his comment was: Something is wrong here.

I agree.

Well to be fair, you shouldn't really be kicking each other, whether friends or not.

But the whole summer seems a little ridiculous. Not too sure what you can do about it though, maybe try Sam's suggestion?

I'm wondering how that ever turned out, since it was apparently last summer?

I have been grounded for as long as two months at a time, but never for an entire summer.

I did, however deserve to be grounded so I politely accepted my parents' decision in the matter and didn't argue over it.

I didn't really have any other choice but to accept my parents decision and arguing or trying to talk them into changing the length or other terms of my punishment would only have made it worse. I have carefully watched what they did with my older sis whenever she needed punishment while we are growing up, and know when not to rock the boat. My sis told me I was lucky to only get grounded two months for what I had done. I also got a spanking at the outset of the punishment, which was also expected.

I made a really bad choice and knew at the time I would be in big trouble if I got caught.

My parents never had any deratious punishments. Even in the aftermath of their divorce, when I lived at Mom's and was at war almost daily with her, she found it beneath her dignity to punish me.

At that time I was probably the biggest idiot ever even for a 10-12 yo guy, I really thought I hated Mom. After I moved to Dad, I had no contact with mom for 2 years. However, also because she moved to Sweden.

All in all, all the mistakes that I noticed my parents had, above all mom, eg especially her strict career orientation, which she also applied to her kids, I must acknowledge that she still brought me up well and that it isn't just the merit of my dad, with whom I got along the best, because he is rather a very laid back guy.
