Uber strict parents
When I was a child I had a friend whos parents were really really strict. He had to call his father sir and mom 'mam'. Had to ask permission to do pretty much anything. Plus he used to get the paddle. Any little infraction and he had to bed over and get whacked and it was hard. My family was almost the opposite. No structure. no discipline. No respect.
I actually used to wish that I lived in that other family. I liked going over there. I liked that I used to have to say 'hello' to each of his parents and ask to play with my friend and ask if we wanted to go down the park and be told that we had to be back by a particular time and then say 'good by' and 'thank you for having me' to each parent before I went home.
They never disciplined me by hitting but I do remember being told that I had to behave or 'we don't behave that way here' In that case I'd said something rude. I think I have memories of being told to go and stand facing the wall or go home but that could be just my imagination.
pretty odd I think
