    I have strict parents.

    My parents have rules about grades and friends and attitude. They say I have to be a good image for the Lord and to respect the rules of everyone.

    my parents are strict

    for sure, but i dunno. half my friends are "grounded" all the time for something or other that it makes me think my parents are pretty fair most times. Plus when my friends do get grounded "for a week", and 2 days later they are texting me to go do something...it makes me wonder...

    We are on vacation in Europe

    and should have fun. But I get in trouble all the time either I get spanked or corner time or have to write essays about stuff. I love it here and Europe is beautiful but it is more annoying than school. Why can't my parents just have fun

    My parents are being extremely irrational.

    I was simply looking for my laptop charger, which was plugged into this wall for the past few days, so I expected it to be there. I asked my mom where it was, because she was using the laptop last. She said she didn't know. My mom is an extremely forgetful and apathetic person...

    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...

    Can't really complain,

    though. My parents kept me in check in a lot of situations where, in hindsight, I REALLY needed to be kept in check. I'm glad for how I was raised; I have a pretty rigid sense of discipline. A lot of younger people with strict parents might not see it now -- and all situations...

    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???? :(

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

    I can't wait to move out- just

    for the freedom. My parents aren't too strict; my mom is an angel, but my dad has so many rules when it comes to my socializing. I have younger siblings and I know that they're definitely going to get more freedom, since I'm the oldest and the "test subject" ya feel. For example...

    if I am lucky or unlucky to have very strict parents. I think it is a good thing to be strict but I don't like that all my friends and classmates are not raised like this, I feel a bit alone.
