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?

in defense of parents everywhere....
speaking as a parent i've come to realise that there is no hand book, only a broad set of guidelines - (the main one being, make sure your offspring don't actually die) so..

basically we're winging it. making it up as we go.

if something seems weird or overly strict in years to come, it's because we didn't actually think it through or said it in the heat of the moment. that moment being 'i would like a quiet moment, please don't mess it up.' in extreme cases, when faced with a problem we realy can't figure out the correct rule for, we apply something that happened to us when we were kids. good or bad.
