Can someone please explain to me why parents do that?
Now as an adult AND a father of a two years old girl there are slme things that I can't understand. Why are parents such hypocrites? I mean, they admit to had done things in their youth... and then forbid their children for doing the same OR judge them. I have plenty of friends whose parents show this double standard well and which makes them total hypocrites, but I will focus on mine.
1. My parents used to get drunk every weekend starting from age 15 for my father, and 17 for my mother. But me drinking at 14 was the end of the world and they use ground me for it (I would escape from my window as a result 🙄).
2. My parents met each others when my father was 15 and my mother 16 and they started to have sex pretty much right away. I didn't have the right to bring girls home at 17 (I did it anyway from age 16 but I had to hide them). What.... seriously? What is this hypocrisy.
3. My father was arrested at 16 for public drinking. He gave me shit for having a ticket for parking in a wrong place.
And I know MANY parents who have these double standards or think that grounding their children is the best education.
Seriously, I hope me and my girlfriend will give a better education to our daughter and instead of being hypocrites... we will be able to talk to her to make sure that everything she does, she does it safely.
