You asked for "at least one reason why your parents did this". And I would be happy to oblige. My parents grew up in a rough neighborhood and believe the technology is the root of all evil and that a child should suffer to make them more resilient to the hardships in life. I believe your after statements were sarcastic but I will elucidate on the points you mentioned. I do not think my parents are cruel, evil, or they like to abuse their children. But I do think that they are uneducated about technology and shouldn't parent their children harshly because of the abuse they received when they were children. Furthermore, I've made straight A's for the past five years, I struggle with doctor diagnosed OCD and among many other things I impulsively keep my room clean, I can not personally speak on my charterer but I do believe i'm somewhat mild and well mannered, I would never yell or nag at my parents because if I did I would be beat into another reality, and while Alcohol and Drugs are not foreign words I do try to stay away from them to uphold my 4.7 GPA. And while I am unable to let my parents on the forum seeing as they despise any public chatting site I can give you insight as to what they would say in this situation or have said to me. They would most likely say something along the lines of " Technology is making our children weak and lazy. If your child spends a lot of time on the Internet you should give them a good beating and see how that helps." As I've stated before they treat their kids badly because of the abuse and trauma they experienced growing up with their unfortunate circumstances. And while I know a child's point of view can be close minded and naive I truly believe that what they are doing is unfair. Some after notes are, I don't hate my parents they just have a physical and outdated form of parenting, and while I do not believe I am perfect I do believe that I've given them no reason not to trust me.
