This is a question Strict Parents

I always thought my parents were quite strict, but I can't think of anything they actually banned me from doing, whereas a good friend was under no circumstances allowed to watch ITV because of the adverts.

This week's Time Out mentions some poor sod who was banned from sitting in the aisle seats at cinemas because, according to their mother, "drug dealers patrol the aisles, injecting people in the arm."

What were you banned from doing as a kid by loopy parents?

Summer of 1986
The World Cup was on, in Mexico to be exact. Me, my brother and me mates were all into collecting the Panini stickers. I had completed about 2 thirds of my sticker album, had plenty of swapsies and on this fateful day, had just aquired a "Garry Lineker"!

Oh joy, life couldn't get any better - and it didn't... i innocently walked in after school with my sticker album undermy arm, clutching my wad of swapsies when my foster mum (devout Catholic, secondary school teacher) spotted them and said something like "what have you got there?... they're a waste of money - now throw them away - all of them - NOW!"


She also did pretty much the same to my one and only "brand-name" toy - a He-Man figure (with punching arm motion)... the moment she saw it she took a dislike to it (she probably thought it'd turn me into a fist-fucking rapist). Anyway, one day i moaned about having to clean and polish my football boots and she instantly marched to my room and took it, saying she was going to throw it away - i never saw it again. To be honest i didn't even like He-Man really, but like i said, it was my only brand name toy (everything else was ethnic wooden carved puzzles n' shit)... AND it was given to me for my birthday by my real mum!
