Today, while watching a family movie, my mother made every effort to make sure I covered my eyes during a kissing scene. I guess it shouldn't be a surprise, since she still forces me to put my phone in her room every night as she makes me go to bed at 8:30 PM. FML

I had a friend...or shall we say I knew a guy like this in college.

It didn't end. His mom would call and interrogate him. Use parental controls on his laptop (that he used almost exclusively for school), and even took away his car at one point when he lied or something.

I'm sorry OP. Unless you're under 15 or something. Then it's still kind of silly, but I understand the phone part for sure.

My mother called the cops on my sister when she was in college, because my sister never returned my mom's calls at 7:00 in the morning (my sister was asleep, of course)

It's not as crazy as it sounds for toddlers to have their own tablets and phones and such. They have a lot of apps, some of them educational, specifically for toddlers and young children. And for obvious reasons, parents don't want their toddlers playing with their gadgets, so they get them their own.

That's an expensive lifestyle you are recommending. Let's hope that part of the moms control freak tendencies are related to her paying the phone bills...

#6 hence why you should allow your kids some privacy, otherwise you are teaching them how to keep secrets and lie to you. Bad parenting imo but everyone is different.

It's been so long since I've signed up, but don't you need to agree that you are at least 17? But isn't that all? There is no way to really prove that you are of age on the Internet. And most kids these days can get past most parental locks.
