    Default Ways your parents keep you in line

    So I gave my mum a skirt to fix that had a very high split (to the middle of my thigh) which had split a little too far. My mum has almost sewn the whole split up. Thanks mum for keeping me virtuous

    What are some ways your parents have kept you in line as an adult?

    I used to ask my Dad to buy duty free cigarettes for me when I travelled. He wouldn't do it. It was legal but Dad didn't want to "support the habit"

    I did this to my Dad, I refused to support his habit too....using Champex he gave up which I never in a million years thought he would ever do. He can't stand the smell now. Very proud of him...

    Sorry I can't think of anything in particular that my parents do to keep me in line anymore....

    My mum critiques my clothes/makeup when she sees me. She dislikes me in 'dramatic' makeup.

    I'm sure she doesn't actually do it to keep me in line, but my mum is apparently unable to stop cleaning... so when she comes to visit, I feel like my house has to be spotless, and I have to run around and do everything as soon as I see it, or she will start doing it. Then I feel guilty and lazy.

    Oh no! I think I would be ok with mum coming over to clean, or anybody coming over to clean

    My mum always tells me to curl my hair because it's naturally curly and I hate it

    This is my mother in law!

    It used to really bug me, but now I just let her go for it, if she enjoys cleaning so much then good on her...

    I had curly-ish hair when younger and my mum did/does the same thing.
