Sometimes you have to make it all the way to adulthood before you connect how supremely weird your childhood was. Most families have a few bizarre traditions up their sleeves, but not all are equal, and looking back with 20/20 hindsight is a surefire way to reevaluate what you internalized as normal.
In a recent Reddit thread, people shared the things their parents did that they now realize is bizarre or unhealthy, and it'll make you feel less lonely about your weird childhood.

"I don't have very many memories of my childhood, or really anything in the last 25 years. But I do remember when we would go in time out, we had to bend our knees and fold our arms behind our backs while staring at the wall.
We had to stand motionless and silent for 30 minutes. If we moved or swayed, we got another 30 minutes. This would go on for hours sometimes. My brothers and I would pull muscles and pass out sometimes."
