    when I was growing up,

    there wasn't a "sorry, she's a kid" excuse, it was "You do that again, and I'll knock you into next week" sorta thing.

    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.

    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

    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 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...

    I grew up in a very strict household,

    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...

    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...
