‘Never bunking school’ to ‘Never going to Goa with friends’, the struggle of growing up with strict parents in India is too real.
Growing up in India has its own never-ending struggles but if your Venn Diagram of ‘Indian Struggles’ intersects with ‘Growing Up With Strict Parents’, then, you, my dear stranger friend, are screwed. It’s really confusing to have Strict Parents, mainly because you’re really thankful that they care so much about you, they look out for you and are very considerate but then you’re also frustrated at the same time because you can’t see your friends often, can’t go out on night outs, can’t call friends over, basically, you can’t do anything remotely fun.
If you too grew up with strict parents in India, you will relate to these everyday struggles:
