    Family Rules

    This is the list of rules I found in my friend John's house. I took out some of the rules that were pretty much the same thing and added some notes of my own on how John spanks and positions and implements and what he considers to be major infractions and minor ones. While this...

    I had strict parents.

    I would often get physical discipline with a cane. They were rather old fashioned. They died in a car accident when I was 10. I never really had any love for them nor them me. They brought me up in a way that was always going to get me bullied. I miss them but I promise that's...

    My mom has such high expectations

    for my brother and I. Every chore she makes us do comes off as an order. Then, she wants me to be more involved even though I'm near the top of my class at my school, participate in school activities, and go to youth group outside of school.

    My parents are controlling my life.

    I know they only want the best for me and I should be grateful that they are painfully carving out my path in life, but I feel like I'm being forced to walk that path. They pretend to give me choices, but I know I'll eventually have to become a lawyer/solicitor, because I don't...

    Having strict parents isn't always easy

    and we don't always agree or get along but having strict parents has taught me to be respectful not to lie. I don't cuss anymore me and my momma and daddy are closer and I love them. They are amazing parents. I'm only 13 and yes my daddy does all the spankings. The worst ones...

    I have strict parents.

    They aren't as strict as before. I was in a seriously competitive school during class 6 through class 8 and my anxiety, which I had since I was very very young and was often confused for autism, became severe and led to an eating disorder in which I nearly died and was forced to...

    I guess when I grew up the relative

    that was strict was my aunt. She was the one who used to discipline me by smacking my always exposed bare legs. I recall the stinging slaps to the inside of my thighs. She used to slap my thighs from just below my panties to just above my knees. She believed in being very...

    I don't think my parents care anymore.

    . I get home from a soccer game at 10PM and they left me a note in the door that they left to Mexico... I invited my boyfriend to sleep over and I cried all night cause of how devasted I was. They still don't return :(

    I really do. Whenever I want something, it has to be exactly my dads way. Then, my mom pushes me to do certain things that I'm not comfortable with... This is one of the reasons why I don't have you... My mom saw you look at me last year and started making a big deal as soon...

    My parents actually disciplined me

    when I was a child, but as a result, I now suffer from a psychological disorder called "respect" for others.

    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.

    They had believed that caNing

    and slapping the younger me was for better good. They thought it was respect, but in the end it is merely fear. I swear, I will not treat my future children the same way as they treat me. I want to be viewed as a father, not a villain.
