Top Ten Ways Parents Are Strict

I was born in a strict parent and i have to work instead of having fun when i try very hard to get a good life. My parents wouldn't let me go on computer and let me sleep very early. They keep asking me to get good grades....

Do you have a strict parent?

The Top Ten Ways Parents Are Strict

1 They won't let you do anything

Story of my life here:

Me: can I ride this roller coaster?
Mom: no
Me: can I have a facebook?
Mom: no
Me: can I buy this with my own money?
Mom: no
Me: can I finish this before going to bed?
Mom: no

Everything I want to do, it's always 'No No No". SO ANNOYING! >:(

2 They wouldn't let you play video games

I'm allowed to play video games. I'm just not allowed to play them on school days.

3 They always ground you even if you try hard to behave

My mom yells at me for every minor thing I did wrong! >:(

4 They ask you to get all As

Especially if you're Asian

5 They ask you to eat vegetables and if you don't eat them they wouldn't feed you again
6 They wouldn't let you go to parties and celebrations

I've never been to a sleepover or any of my friends birthday parties. That's how strict my parents are. - Pegasister12

My mom lets me; I just never get invited.

7 They can influence you to be mean

Rude teachers do this too.

8 They limited you to social media

I’m NOT ALLOWED to have any social media

9 They don't want you post anything on social media

I don't even have ANY of these accounts

I was sharing my mean teacher and my mother wanted me to delete that post I told her NO! She do it now and I did deleted that. - Bikerninja1997

Yet they post stuff on facebook ALL THE IME

10 They demand constant control over your electronics

My parents won’t let me use my phone because “the screen is too small and I’ll go blind from it” and won’t let me use the iPad all the time because “I’ll go blind for it and it’s a waste of my time”. But what do THEY do? Play with their iPads and go on their phones ALL DAY LONG!

The Contenders

11 They get mad over the slightest things

Once I dropped an item and my parents got mad at me for being clumsy :(

12 They have high expectations

(We're Asian)
Me: I got 90% on my test
Mom: that's OK. You can do better, though.

My parents are Asian and once they got mad at me over a B+ on a test. A B+!

13 They enforce bedtimes and curfews even when you’re not a kid anymore

When I was in high school my mom made me go to bed at 9 PM and whenever we go to family parties my mom won’t let us stay after 10 or 11 PM

14 They limit play time

Once on a 4 hr flight to Vegas:

Me: (plays with iPad for 2 hrs straight)
Mom: Put your iPad away
Me: (bored for the next 2 hours)

I have like less then one hour of play time. Everyone in my school gets like two hours or more, my teacher says mine is very equal, when it’s literally a sign that you have strict parents!

15 They do not give you any freedom

I can't even paint my nails! I have to wait until I'm 16! 16!

I am an adult, and my overprotective parents will not allow me to buy stuff with my own money OR leave the house unsupervised >:(

16 They punish you
17 They control your diet

My mom thinks I will instantly get diabetes if I eat dessert

18 They control your weight

If I gain EVEN 1 LB my mom will call me fat and make me go on a diet

19 They monitor what you watch on YouTube

either sign out of your google account or delete history

Geez, my parents wants me to watch all the Kiddie shows and all the videos with no bad words in it when they are like the worst videos ever. My parents’ world is so delayed!

My parents don’t like it when I watch funny videos, YTPs or videos with kids in them

20 They monitor what you watch on TV

My mom won’t let me watch adult movies (or any movie with sex or nudity in them) and she won’t let me watch horror movies at night or when my sister is in the room

21 They force you to study all day, every day

My parents are Asian and they think that anything that’s not academic is considered a waste of my time and they not only make me review during the school year and weekends (even if there’s a break or it’s the weekend), they also want me to study ahead for the upcoming school year/semester over the summer.

22 They are over protective

My mom takes this up to eleven. She thinks that anything could hurt/kill me. For example I’m 26 and she will not let me cook because she thinks that I will burn the house down or something.

23 They make you exercise all the time

My mom makes me exercise over 1 hr every single day. I do get breaks, but only like every 20-30 minutes or so. Even if I’m out of breath and sweating like crazy, if I pause for a brief break my mom would force me to continue. Exercise is a good thing, but over exercising is bad for your body!

24 They say “no” to everything

My mom says these all the time:
No roller coasters that go upside down
No social media
No YouTube
No earbuds
You can’t do this or that
No you can’t buy this
You can’t eat this

Very annoying.

25 They want you to do things their way

My parents are Asian and my mom believes in Asian superstitions she makes me go along to them even if I don’t agree with them because if I don’t agree with them, she gets mad at me.

26 They force the older child to do chores

I'm 26 and I have to do chores. My sister is 19 and she doesn't have to do any chores at all.

27 They reprimand you for everything

No matter what I do, there's a slight chance that I could get in trouble with my parents for it :(

28 They demand total obedience
29 They have a low tolerance for patience

My parents constantly rush me for everything

30 They think that life is all work and no play
31 They yell at you even if you just make a minor mistake
32 They get mad over a B+ on a test or report card

My parents are Asian and they don’t like it whenever I get anything below a 95%...

33 They supervise everything that you do
34 They want to know everything that you're doing at all times
35 They want to know wherever you are at all times
36 They monitor everything that you do on the computer and they have to approve things before you save anything even if it is for school

Once for a web design class I had to publish a site that I make to the internet and my mom had to look at the site and approve of it before I publish it despite the fact that there's nothing personal or inappropriate on it (all images used on the site are from google)

37 They require that you want to do needs to be approved by them

I have to get permission from my mom before she allows me to go on certain thrill rides at amusement parks.

38 They have set bedtimes and curfews for you

I had to go to bed at 9PM when I was in high school

39 They tell you to do stuff "NOW!!!" and if you tell them "later" they get very mad

Mom: do this
Me: later
Mom: NO, NOW!

40 They force you to do stuff that you don't want to do

At Disneyland I wanted to ride Space Mountain, Star Tours and the Haunted mansion but my mom forced me to ride baby rides like It's a Small World and Casey JR and when I told her I don't want to ride that stuff, she gets mad at me.

41 They get mad at you whenever you try to protest

At Disneyland 2015:
Me: can I ride Star Tours, the Haunted Mansion, and Space Mountain?
Mom: No: we will ride Casey Jr and It's a Small World instead
Me: But mom, I don't want to!
Mom: You are riding with me and that's final!
Me: but-
My Sister: JUST DO IT! >:(
Me: Fine! >:(

42 They think that you are too old for certain stuff
