    They say having strict parents will discipline

    your kids for the better. But despite what my parents said I still went on with my life doing horrible and regretful things behind their backs. Now, I feel miserable because I betrayed my parents in so many ways and I am nowhere near in a close relationship with them. I always...

    I am allowed nothing.

    We have school holidays now I have to get up every morning at 6 and go to bed at 9. I have to help doing all things in the house with my mother and when I am finished I have to beg to be allowed to call my friends or go out. My parents control everything.

    My parents were pretty mad at me today.

    I was at friends to have some fun over there. I had to be home at 5 PM, because I had to prepare dinner since both my dad and mom would be home late. So I totally forgot time and when I realized I had to go home it was already 6:30 PM.. I was like noooooo! I rushed to home and...

    Theyre A Pain!

    Extremely Strict Parents- My Rant

    It seems like they are on me about something. If its not one thing than its another shortly there after. Most of the things they get strict about are quite insignfant, in my opinion. I dion't consider them negative people in life, but with me they tend to focus on the...

    I got a D yesterday in my math test eventhough

    it wasn't because I didn't learned but I misunderstood the question of it and so I failed. Now I called my dad so that he knows the result. HE told me I have to wait until he is back and then he would deal with me. I am soooo scared he is so strict when it is abouts my grades

    They are strict but I love them

    because they care. They don't allow rudeness or coming in late or misbehaviour at school which is tough as I tend to do these things and when I do out comes the slipper. Got it the other night cos I was rude to mum before I left school and she said she'd 'see' me about it when I...

    My parents as members of Opus Dei seek holiness

    at all times, and they practice self flagellation. Whipping is an aspect of their idea of child discipline. I rebelled too much and they sent me to live here in Paris with my aunt.
