Under the virus, 10/10. They require me to wear my shoes outside home, wash hands every 30 minutes and to complete work exceeding the typical amount for a school day.

Checks you’re phone? How old are you if you don’t mind me asking... and would you use these parenting skills on you’re own children one day?

Now that I've kinda moved out/at uni?
1/10
I get occasional reminders to brush my teeth properly.


When I was at home?
3/10.
Very relaxed generally, but swearing was a no-no and there were more rules when I was younger which gradually got relaxed.

You’re lucky but do you think having strict parents would have made you A different person today?

3/4 They've let me do whatever I've wanted since I can remember. I can remember playing my ps3 between matches of COD while revising for my GCSE Physics exam the day after (around 10-11pm). I base this level on freedom on the fact that they trust me completely and respect that the decisions I'll make will be for my best interests. I never betray their trust by doing stupid things, and everything I do, I can tell my parents. If I get shouted at (very rarely) it'd be because I stepped outsides the realms of my own principles.

I honestly couldn't have hoped for better parents

Undoubtedly, to be fair to parents though, you don't get given an instruction manual with your new baby. Often parenting is done modeled from what they felt was good about their upbringing, and sometimes this can be very ineffective in the present day. And the situations children end up in is very much as a result of their own choices too, not just parental influences.

It's very easy to sit here on a keyboard and parent-bash but I'll be quite surprised if there's many people here who weren't at some point in their lives thankful to have a Mum or a Dad.

Awww! That’s really sweet! Great parenting is important and i can see the balance of being firm but loving makes alot of sense. ❤️
