Hey there, welcome you to Ask Alex – a safe place where you can express your feelings and concerns without judgment.
We’re here to listen, and we understand that sometimes life can throw challenges our way. It’s completely normal to feel worried and stressed when you’ve got a detention, especially when you know your mam might be upset. 
It’s important to remember that getting a detention is something that can happen to anyone. It doesn’t define who you are as a person. It’s a chance to learn from the experience and grow. While your mam might be upset initially, she cares about you and will likely want to help you make better choices in the future.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed, don’t hesitate to reach out to someone you trust, like a friend or a teacher, and talk about your feelings. You’re not alone, and there are people who want to support you.
The Childline Team is also here for you 24/7. You can contact us at 1800 66 66 66 or through Live Chat at  You can always give us a call to talk about how you will tell your mam about the detention. We are ready to listen, offer support, and explore your options with you.
Remember, it’s okay to make mistakes; it’s all part of growing up. We’re here whenever you’d like to talk. 
Take care of yourself,
