I can’t help but notice so many young people around the forum and some who mention their parents - mainly the dad - in a good way. I was wondering how many of you actually get on well with your parents.
My parents have always been embarrassing and I rarely like being around them. I’m not sure if it’s because of a strict upbringing where I haven’t bonded well enough or that I just don’t like them.
Quick descriptions: My dad’s like Homer Simpson without the compassion he shows for his family. My mum is interfering and generally makes a nuisance of herself. They never get along and have been borderline divorced for many years but probably won’t split up because of their religion.
Another thing I’d like to know is do you like the way you have been or are being raised? Do you prefer a strict upbringing as it perhaps enhances your moral character or a freer upbringing so you feel more confident?
I think I’d prefer a freer upbringing because I see families like the Osbournes on TV and despite the fact they generally seem a bit odd, their family looks really close-knit.
