People are sharing the weird things their parents banned when they were kids, and you’ll be reliving your strict childhood

You don’t really realize how much there is to worry about until you have kids. Folks whose parents were particularly strict never got to do all the fun stuff their friends got to do, so they may be more apt to let their own kids have more freedom. But on the flip side, those of us who had pretty lax parental guidelines find ourselves fretting over too much screen time, preservatives in food, and tethering our children at all times, for fear of kidnapping.

And if you think, “Well if that’s the worst of it…” you must have forgotten about the TV shows, movies, and music it’s even easier to access under strict parental noses these days.

Thank goodness Twitter user @toomuchnick gave everyone a chance to grieve those lost parts of their childhoods.
