I am old. I was just talking about this today. My parents had no idea what I was ever doing, and I thank God for that!

I couldn't stand to be a kid of today who had to be driven and picked up from school and spied on 24/7.

Parents today are sick and twisted (for the most part). They parent out of a state of fear and are producing horrible people that we all have to deal with.

Can you say more about this? I am interested in cross-cultural perspectives on parenting.

My mom was very strict, about a nine. My dad was pretty clueless. He came home from work and made a beeline for his recliner. Mom handed out all the punishment.

Depends on what sibling in the family lol With the oldest, it could be an 8 then with the youngest, it could be a 2 lol Birth order and gender makes a difference. Favoritism even when the parents don't think so, the kids know.

My dad passed away young of a heart attack at 47, so my mother had 4 kids to raise by herself.

She did a great job. I'd say her strictness level was about a 7 for me (being the youngest and the only girl) and a 5 for my brothers.

I'm glad she was fairly strict with me, although I wasn't at the time. She taught me respect and proper manners.

My family was on opposite sides of the strict and liberal.

At times they were a 10 for strictness, but I call it being controlling. Then they were a 1, but I call this zero teaching. In fact, controlling children is not really teaching them.
