Can i define a realistic person as a person who has his feet on the ground. What I want to say is if I use the construction a person with her feet on the ground as a synonym of a realistic person. Thank you
In Am.E, teenagers do get grounded as punishment, meaning that they can't leave the house for any fun activities. You could say, "Roger is grounded this week," meaning he can only go to school and work and come back home, but if you say that Roger is a grounded person, that means he does not become arrogant when he achieves success and stays focused on what's important.
