PS: I’m a dad, I’m strict with my daughter but I’m none of what you listed above.What I consider strict is:1- Go to bed on time.2- eat vegetables and fruits even if you don’t like it.3- clean up your mess4- please and thank youEtc— LeMoine 🇭🇹 (@JudeAntenor) May 28, 2021 That’s called being a parent. Being strict means reSTRICTing their social development for reasons beyond keeping them safe— Venassa B (@venassa_bae) May 28, 2021 I respect your insight, but this may be a read the room situation. This feels a little diminishing. Gas lighty. Not full on, but yeah.— Eartha Kitt’s Cigarette (@NydiaByNature) May 29, 2021 I read this and the comments below with keen interest. I am a high school teacher, a mother, a guidance counsellor and a youth mentorship ambassador. If I say I don't understand the thread and comments, I am obviously lieing to myself but being rebellious is never a solution— uzoamaka mary (@uzoamaka_mary) May 29, 2021 My mom was strict af. When I moved out,I didn’t know a thing about the outside world, flaw ppl, relationships, how to cross the street, and I was a chicken with my head cut off when it came to clubbing. Ik what to do with my daughter, she won’t be me— ITS MAE2U (@quoyamae) May 29, 2021 I feel like I started rebelling a little too late because the thought of my mother disapproving of me was too great a fear for me back then. I grew up scared of everything - fear of speaking up/out, fear of stating my opinion, fear of rejection. But baby when I DID start sp-— Please.⁷ (@onnitK) May 29, 2021 This thread is it. If you don’t realise these things now you’ll grow old and wonder why you ever did the things you were told to do... wonder why you appeased to your parents wishes... is it their life or yours? Go out, live your best life unapologetically and chase your dreams!— 🖤 (@Ecrubisque) May 29, 2021 I suffered some of this but I would’ve been totally fucked if I hadn’t rebel and got the fuck outta there at age 19, which they didn’t speak to me for 6 years for. But today, they can’t stop praising me. So again, REBEL !— Tunde (@OHHMGitstbaba) May 28, 2021 huge difference btwn strict/ responsible.most teens think parents are strict when they are actually looking for the teens to be more responsible and prep for success later in life. when that teen turns 25 or 30 they end up thanking the parents for those boundaries that were set.— jeremy nichols (@laserengravenow) May 29, 2021 they also ruin ur confidence by constantly never letting you do anything on your own and underminding and criticizing ur every decision.— miss ma’am (@dijahouija) May 28, 2021 I used to lie like it was second nature just to have peace. I would even lie about stupid shit because I knew they would react crazy— YAO (@theyaobansah) May 29, 2021 my parents don’t realize that (they do but will never admit it.) that i picked up a bad ass lying habit with them because of how strict they were. and even when i moved out (it’s been a year) i still feel the need to lie to keep peace. even though i’m well off. it makes me sad.— aphrodite (@lovelyladycoco) May 29, 2021 Bro you going crazy on this one. Once you actually start standing up for yourself and proving them wrong with you success… they won’t say shit no more— Daniel P 🇬🇭 (@Danielpida23) May 29, 2021 There you have it.
