For those of you who grew up in a household where you lived in constant fear of having to ask your parents everything and every time. You may think that growing up with strict parents is the worst, but if you think about it now, it prepared you for the real world. Just notice, you’re probably more aware of your surroundings now, you probably respect not only yourself, but also your peers and actually act just like your parents. Or hey, maybe you decided to rebel against your parents once you hit college but it’s a bad idea.

Sometimes a child feels like it has been deprived of its free will, the parents feel like their kid will end up in trouble and lead a life filled with regrets- thus there is no true victor in these battles.

Here are 9 struggles of growing up with strict parents: While it may seem like you’re the only one in the world whose parents are this strict, rest assured you are not alone in the parental oppression. Everyone who grew up with strict parents will understand and be able to relate to these things.

1.    FIRST THINGS FIRST, ASK FOR CONSENT

You heard it right. No matter where you are going, you better ask for consent from your parents, whether it is an event, hangout, trip, party or anything else. The consent is a must thing, even you have to ask for breathing.

2.   ASKING FOR POCKET MONEY

One of the toughest struggles children go through, is asking for money from their parents. Just ask once or money from your mother and she’ll start evaluating where you spent $5 she gave you two years ago. Asking for pocket money seems like asking for a property share.

3.   WELCOME TO RESTRICTIONS

Parents love restrictions. They restrict their child so much that it feels like they can leave their child but not restrictions. There are three stages in life of such children:

*Born*

*Restrictions*

*Death*

4.   NO HANGOUT

Girls are unlucky in this case. They are never granted permission for any kind of hangout. They get to hear a thousand questions like where are you going, who you are going with, do we know your friends, will there be any boys, when you will go, when you will be back etc.

Me: Mom, I am going to die.

Mom: You must be home by seven.

5.   NEVER ARGUE

Whether it’s one sided or two sided argument, you are the one who gets blamed for it. If you stay quiet, they interpret that you have so much attitude and say “Why are you not answering me?” If, by mistake, you respond to their arguments and your points are valid, then you are given a shut-up call with the title, “Disobedient child”.

6.   WHEN IT COMES TO BLACKMAILING

If you think you can blackmail them, just forget about it because it is not your cup of tea at all. Similarly, you can’t even recalcitrate for anything in supermarket because you know blackmailing won’t work and you mom will leave you in supermarket right there.

Me: If you do not listen to me, I will cut my wrist.

Mom: Fine, go ahead.

*Puts knife back* K

7.   THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK

You must be very careful before you share anything with your parents even if it’s a joke because who knows it might turn into an hour of lecture for you.

8.   THE FOREVER BATTLE BETWEEN YOUR PARENTS AND YOUR CELLPHONE

Strict parents think that the root of all the problems is cellphone.

Me: Mom, I’m getting sick.

Mom: It’s because you are always on your phone.

Me: Mom, My head is pounding.

Mom: It’s because you are always on your phone.

*Breaks phone in frustration*

Mom: You broke it because you are always on your phone.

 9.   SPENDING MONEY BE LIKE

If you buy a thing which is a bit expensive, your mother says, “I would have brought it half in price.” If you buy a thing at a really cheap cost, your mother says “That is why it’s too substandard.”
