My mom and dad were definitely strict about some things when I was growing up, but not about others.

Drinking and drugs: HUGE TROUBLE.


But since I kept my nose relatively clean, I was allowed a lot of freedom. Like a pretty late curfew and, if I was going to a concert or a show, even on a weeknight, it was allowed even if I’d be getting home at 2 a.m. on a school night.

So that was pretty cool of them.

But these folks you’re about to meet: they had some pretty weird rules when they were growing up.

Here’s what they had to say…

1. What the heck?

Extreme Parenting 101.

2. Cult activity.

Creepy stuff…

3. No bare arms.

What’s this country coming to?

4. Can I open the fridge?

Also, no laughing!

5. Wow…strict.

Get up! Now!

6. Is your Dad the preacher from Footloose?

That is wild.

7. No closed doors.

Never understood this one.

8. Don’t let them see your feet!

Not a fan of the feet in this house.

9. No thank you.

I’d be outta there in a heartbeat.

10. Did you actually follow this rule?

I bet you didn’t…

11. That’s enough fun.

Maybe you can have some more tomorrow.

12. That didn’t help things.

We know who to blame.

13. Out of control.

I hope you rebelled…at least a little bit.

How about you?

Were your parents really strict when you were coming of age?

Tell us all about it in the comments.

Please and thank you!
