    my eldest sister had it worst. She was never allowed to attend school events, all she did was school and home. So I did have it easier than her once I turned 18 I was able to hang out with my friends with a 8pm curfew, no sleepovers, and NO boyfriends. I was always rebellious...

    Tough, strict, but loving.

    They expect the best from me at all times and in all situations. And if I act out of line or bring home a bad grade...let's just say it's embarrassing and isn't pretty. :( Still, I work really hard to make them proud!

    I'm guessing the definition of strict is you're

    not allowed to do anything you want or go anywhere you want lol. Yep I hated that too but guess what it was best for me :)

    Are most of you guys allowed to leave the house

    without your parents's permission or do you always have to ask? It's insane! I'm 18. I need my freedom. The butterflies beforehand if they say no but you already agreed to your friends. It's totally unfair. Whyyy does this have to happen to me???? :(
