My parents let me go to the mall with some friends for the first time this summer.
I'm not allowed to date (except dances) until I'm 16
I can't date anyone my parents don't see appropriate (no facial piercings, no weird hair, no strange sense of style)
I can't date anyone without all A's
I've never been allowed to go to halloween parties
I can't use the internet or text after 8 PM
I can't straighten my hair more than three times a week

I have strict parents, alright. But if you compromise, everyone's happy. It may not work with your parents (I can't compromise with mine), but I can still manage to have fun. They're just trying to keep you safe.

I know they are trying to keep me safe but sometimes they go to far im not even allowed to go to school dances!! and im not allowed to wear makeup only allowed 1 hour on msn per nightand im not allowed to wear tanktops

They put restrictions on my computer time, I can't even have any kind of messenger, or myspace, and I can't wear halters or tube tops. they can see "too much skin" AKA anything below your collar bone, pretty much, it's for "around the house". I can't wear skirts unless I wear shorts under them, and the dances thing, it's because some guys can get really irresponsible. Like I said, compromise. I compromised with makeup by coverup, glitter, and eyeshadow, and nothing else until high school. I have to buy everything myself, except coverup, and if there is too much, my mom wipes it all off.

Hah, same with my parents. My friend Tyler likes to call me just for fun, and she gets mad. Ugh. And she gets mad because they call my cell phone instead of the home phone.

And no problem. You can add me to your friends list if you would like.

My parents are strict about some things, it bugs me.

Bed by 9 (WTF?! I'm 15!)
No dating
No going out with friends to the mall
No calling guy friends (they have to call me. Problem? The only guy friend that has my number can't call me either.)

My parents were strict on some things and easy about others. I wasn't allowed to date til they considered me responsible enough; ie, I had to keep to their rules about always ringing up if I went out with friends and was going to be late, and helping around the house; things like that. I had my first boyf at 15, and that wasn't serious. I didn't have a curfew as such, but if I did come in later than 10 (when they went to bed) I had to be dead silent and not wake them up.

They let me dress how I liked, and wear makeup; but they banned chewing gum from the house, wouldn't let me drink fizzy cept on weekends, and rationed TV. As a child, I was encouraged to go out and play with friends on the green rather than sit in front of the TV the whole time. They also kept me in line in public; I knew that if I misbehaved, I'd get it in the neck from both Mum and Dad.

Mum also used to say frequently, "My house, my rules. When you leave home, you can do what you like." XD As soon as I did, I could; but, a lot of the things she used to hammer home remain.

Speaking of TV, when I was a kid I watched it constantly and was grounded from it for a week once. Now, I barely watch it anymore due to sh*tty TV shows. o_o
