We all think our parents are the best at some point, and sometimes we think they’re the most strict people on the planet. When you’re growing up, there are tons of rules you have to follow, and some of them you weren’t so happy about. These Reddit users talk about some of the craziest rules they had to follow as kids. Check them out!
Too Much Fun
Have a friend who isn’t allowed to go out if “he’s already had too much fun this weekend.” That’s the only reason, they think he’ll become corrupted if he has too much fun and that he won’t know how to work. He’s in college (Nilocallen)
I was not allowed to talk to boys. One Christmas Eve Day, I was doing last minute shopping in the downtown of our little town. I ran into two male friends from my German class and we talked for several minutes and wished each other a Merry Christmas. Oh I was fifteen at the time. My older sister drove by and saw me, told my parents I was ” hanging out with boys ” . When I walked in the house both my parents were waiting and the yelling began. Some Christmas Eve. (mevoxdez)
I had a ton. I think the most unreasonable was that we (my siblings and I) weren’t allowed to know where we were going during car rides. If we’d ask we were told “Business”, and figure it out we were going to the store, etc. only after we arrived to our destination.
This lasted until I moved out. Tankadin
