  • I would say as a kid, they were as high as a 6/10, but as I earned their trust over the years, by the time I was an upperclassman in high school, they were more like a 3/10. They wouldn't be happy campers if I knocked up some chick, or if I got arrested. But if I wanted to randomly leave my house at 2:00 am on a Tuesday, they wouldn't even ask me where I was going. Or if I came back home one day with my ear pierced, they wouldn't care.

  • Definitely an 8 my dad was in the military and fun wasn’t in his vocabulary. That statement that strict parents create sneaky kids is 100% correct. I found ways despite him tracking my every move.

      That sucks. They should let you go out once in a while. That is good you get good grades.

  • 8. My parents were very strict compared to my friends’ parents and that bothered me a lot. I was always the one to be the first one to go home while everyone was having fun which meant that I couldn’t be included in conversations. Stuff like that which made me lose confidence.

    I could do whatever I wanted and my mom almost never noticed and when she did, she hardly cared.

    I missed 80 days of school one year and she didn't notice lol. I went to night school to make sure to graduate on time. And when i came back home late she didn't even ask where I was lol.

    I actually have a lot of problems due to lack of discipline

  • 1 or 2 maybe
    They were never strict they have been very very cooperative and understanding throughout my life
    And whenever the need be they would just sit and talk to me and would council me on the matter

      @Clowr hehe i like that
      But i only sneaked out a few times otherwise i had full support to go out to parties clubbing etc but the only limit was dont end up on the door with someone who does drugs

    • 8 d ago

      Same. Cause I did not drink to much. Knew my limits.
      And don't end up so intoxicated you don't know the different between your parents and a radiator when trying to be serious and having eye contact.

  • When i hit 17 i got a magic ass-kick out of the family house right into the college campus. Then never really coming back home. So my parents did a 10/10 in wisdom.

  • 9. As far as the photo... a parent should be strict about some things or they’re not raising their kid to be a good member of society.

    The question would be what areas to be strict on & what age to relax

  • My mom could easily have been a 20/10 when I was a child and started relaxing after I turned 20... My dad was more relaxed, like a 5/10. Back then I used to complain about it all the time... But growing up I appreciate that they were this way.

  • With me, my mom’s a solid 6.5. I was never really super social growing up, so she never had to worry about me going out and doing things I shouldn’t be doing. When it came to school she was hard on me, but I brought that upon myself by skipping and getting shitty grades.

  • I think they were pretty balanced but leaned more towards laid back. They cared about us and had expectations of us, but they weren’t demanding and all up in our business.

  • I would say they were a 9. They weren't crazy about things like doing chores or home work but my dad would not let me have an existence outside of him. He tried to control everything about me from the way I talked to the way I sat in a room to the posture I used to express myself to my tone of voice when I was talking to somebody to the choice of words I used when I was saying something to the things I respected and liked and the things I didn't respect and didn't like. If I had a difference of opinion with him on any matter such as a a political or on the sexual attractiveness of a male or female celebrity - he would punish me by yelling at me and telling me I was worthless and stupid. I grew up terrified of being genuine and honest with others as a result of all the hatred my dad showed me whenever I tried to be myself around people. I'm 33 and I still have spiritual wounds from all the horrible things he said to me.

  • For Dutch standards, about a 6-7. I wasn’t allowed to do most of the things my friends were allowed to do.

    World’s standards? A 3-4.

  • Under 12: 9.5
    12-15: 8
    16-18: 6
    After that, zero, but if I mess up my mom still has permission to tell me. At 68 she is far wiser than I am.

  • maybe a 6 or a 7. it really depends bc sometimes they can pretty strict about certain subjects and other times they can be really loose about other subjects that some parents are strict about. I mean as every parents they contradict themselves all the time. Like the other day they were going on a trip for the weekend and I wasn't going so I asked if I could sleep at my best friends house and they said no however they have let me sleep at her place before so I don't know what the problem was. parents are weird.
