Behavior has consequences. How old are you, 11?

Maybe you should have stolen only 2/7th of what you stole to justify the shorter sentence.
Be thankful the police was not called. It could have had a lasting impact on your education and potential careers.

Boo hoo.

Your parents did absolutely the right thing. Hopefully it made an impression, because the next time, if I were your parent, I would call the police myself and turn you in.

Consider yourself fortunate and learn your lesson: don’t ever shoplift again.
