    Detention Center

    Dear Teachers,

    a. My son is becoming more and more physical with me when he doesn’t get his way.
    - “get his way” means “get what he requires or wants”, right?

    b. a “Detention center” is a “small prison for teenagers who don’t want to go to school”, right? Does this center only exist in the US?

    Thanks very much
