Children Of Strict Parents Are Tweeting Out Their “Weirdest Rules” Growing Up (50 Tweets)

Everyone has rules they have to follow growing up, but some people’s parents are stricter than others. My parents both worked full-time and I had 4 other siblings and it was the ’90s so I basically had no rules as a kid. But I knew kids in the neighborhood who had strict curfews or weren’t allowed to watch The Simpsons, like a few of the folks in this Twitter thread.

Twitter user @The_Dingus_Khan asked children of strict parents to share their weirdest rules, adding how they weren’t “allowed to wear shorts on Sunday” because “it made us too wordy for Jesus.”

A lot of people responding were raised strictly because of religious reasons, but some seem to be sort of random. Read through some of the weirdest rules children of strict parents had to follow, and see how you stack up.
