Hi friend i belong to Indian family. In Indian family children are supposed to stay with there parents, the same is happening with me. As you know parents are very conservative in nature, they want us to do what they wish. My parents are very strict concerning about me. Is the same with you, are your parents very strict?

I have strict parents when I was younger. They don't want me to be hanging out with a guy so much and I don't know why. My dad strongly disagrees to sleepovers and out of towns. I know that they are just trying to protect us but still, I got pregnant when I was in college. LOL

wow that happened to me too! i think my parents were way too strict so i never got to develop a sense of independence. then as soon as i was away from them i sorta went crazy. with my son i'm keeping an open honest relationship and i'm not going to be so strict, because i know it will only drive him away from me.

My father is very strict until now that I have my own family. I still with my family without my husband living with us. Maybe because that is how they are being brough up that is why that is the only thing they know how to bring their children up. Although, I'm not a strict type of mom to my children because their grandfather is already tough to them. So, I'm trying to let my children feel that they grandfather loves them so much that is why he's that strict but I always have the last say whenever my sons are involve so, I let them free whenever possible to build their trust to themselves and their own independence.

My parents were not very strict with me. At times they wanted to be but I'm to stubborn to just go along because someone tells me I should do something. Its funny they raised me to not just go along with people but then they expect me to just go along with them cause they say so. You can't have it both ways.
