Eat stuff. We were really broke. I was always hungry . Soon as I had the chance I'd eat. Mum would come in and be angry coz I'd ate something that was supposed to be for the next day, and she was skint and couldn't replace it . I was always skin and bone and she couldn't afford to feed us and I feel like it's a bit of a joke for the early 90s

Take my phone and games consoles which my parents only put out during play time with supervision, packing them away otherwise. (but we knew where it was)

At the time I found it unnecessary and annoying because all my friends could be online unrestricted as soon as school finished until night. But now that I'm older I realise the damage that would've done to us and if I ever become a parent I'll do the same exact thing mine did.

Enforcing schedules are so important for children who don't yet know the value of how to spend their time
