As a kid who grew up an only child with "unconventional" bohemian parents, I wanted nothing but to fit in with my friends whose families seemed more "normal" and conventional. Now that I'm an adult, I know that having a somewhat "unusual" childhood has equipped me with a more open-minded outlook on life. But even my childhood was fairly conventional compared to a lot of people.

Someone asked Reddit: "What was it like being raised in an unusual environment (like a boat traveling the world/touring with a family band) or with interesting parents (geniuses/famous/very popular)?"

Here are 15 eye-opening stories from people who grew up in "unusual" home environments, some happier than others:

1.) Artsy parents.

From xofcups:

Parents owned a bar and music venue. I was exposed to a wealth of art, culture, and people that most parents try to shield their children from. Pros: I am very knowledgeable about art and people, cons: my parents were too busy doing drugs to bother parenting me much.
