are my parents right to impose their own punishment on top of my severe school punishment ?

as i write i am confined to my bedroom, as a extra punishment set by my parents for setting off the fire alarm at school, i have just got home from serving my first of 2 FULL saturday detentions, it was HORRIBLE we had to be in school at 9am in FULL school uniform white shirt black skirt , tie and a black blazer, we the had to write punishment essay until 12am then an hour for lunch, at 1pm we had to copy out the essays, we were not freed until 4pm. we also have 1 and a half hours detention on tuesday, wednesday and friday for 2 weeks

My parents said that setting off the fire alarm is such a stupid thing to do and requires a harsh or even severe punishment, my parents have not said set how long i will be punished for but i should say goodbye to my freedom ?

    I can't say any of those punishments sounds really HORRIBLE!

    Either you're a troll or one pampered little girl. Either way, I'm not sympathetic.

    They sure can.  Once all of your punishment is need to rethink your future can either change your behavior or continue the same path and eventually end up in prison.

    Yes. You are lucky you didn’t get arrested.

    Yes.  You should be marched down to the Fire Station, and made to stand on a box and make a confession speech begging forgiveness to all the firepersons.

    OMFG!! I am laughing so hard at you right now!!! You call this PUNNISHMENT??? Are you really that pathetic?? GRLLLL~~ wake up call commencing in 3-2-1...

    First of all, and most important~ what you did was HELLA FKING STUPID! You could easily have caused an accident, in your school, and if the fire department is auto-called when an alarm goes off, that means you took the fire department away from potentially going to a REAL fire, had there been one at the same time. AGAIN~~ You could have been the reason for someone losing their life, or the life/lives of their loved ones. For that reason alone, if you were my kid, I would have beat your @$$. 

    That alarm is there for emergencies. Nowhere on it does it say 'Please pull me to see how many people get pssed off'. That is a dck move and you are a dck for doing it. 

    As far as what the school is handing you, pfft, you are not getting nearly what you deserve, but trust and believe when I tell you this is not 'severe'. Not by any stretch of the imagination. I frankly believe this should get some old school punnishment where you have to do community service jobs like picking nasty things out of ditches for a month of Saturdays. 

    And understand this~ if you were my kid, you would lose it all~ phone, electronics, freedom, the works. Period. It would be gone. Garbaged, so what ever your parents do as a punishment, tell them I would like to shake their hand. 

    Maybe after this you will get your head out of your @$$ and realize the world does not rotate around your self entitled little head, and you will learn to think of real world consequences of your stupid, STUPID pranks, although I doubt it, people like you never learn. You grow up to be Karens.

    Why would you set off a school fire alarm?  What would compel you to do it?

    Your problem is you only think about yourself.  Sitting in your room by yourself allows you to be with you...and you really can't stand yourself can you?

    You needlessly interrupted hundred of lives and put others needlessly at risk.  You don't care about them.  You think you are the VICTIM.

    Grow up little child.  You need to learn how to play with others...and if you want to like yourself, tell the truth and practice giving to will receive more than you give.  It will shock you.

    Some believe your punishment is better than what they have.

    Yes.  Your parents should add their own punishment on top of the school's.

    That said, I pulled my school's fire alarm and I was never punished.  Maybe my teacher was punished.  She left us outside unsupervised for way too long.

    I thought most schools were closed due to the pandemic.

    Yes, of course your parents can add on their own punishment.
