Back off, Mom!
Everyone has their own unique relationship with their parents, and some are a bit more complicated than others. Even though having distant parents can be frustrating and difficult, having parents who are overly protective can also present its own challenges. From putting trackers on phones to not being allowed to use a can opener, here are cases of the most extreme rules helicopter parents have ever enforced.
Not allowed to leave the house without being an accompanied by an adult even in late teens.
Not allowed to use a steak knife and mom had to cut the meat.
Not allowed to use a can opener.
Not allowed to use the stove, deep fryer, or oven even during late teens.

Not allowed to watch rated G movies (DwaiTheGuy)
all the Christian reaction against Halloween…like that kids need to do some corny alternative with their church and can’t dress up as anything “satanic” like a vampire. (moogiemuffinnn)
