Look, it’s a scary world out there, so it’s understandable that parents worry about their kids. But let’s be real, some parents take being strict or overprotective to a whole other level!
If you know some parents like that, or — heck! — if you yourself are an unapologetically strict or overprotective parent, we want to hear your stories!
In your house, were all movies rated “G” until the kids turned 18 years old?
Were dates — if they were allowed at all! — only done with a parental chaperone?
Were sleepovers only allowed at approved homes and as long as there were phone check-ins every hour?
Were background checks done on potential friends, dates, or teachers?
Are you thinking your parents were even more over-the-top than that? If so, we want to hear it! Amuse us with your overprotective/strict parent story in the comments below, and it could be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post!
