I wasn't allowed to bring any food back home from anywhere when I was a kid, I never understood why and even today my parents can't remember the reason.

When I was old enough to start mowing the lawn, my mother would always make me wear a bandanna over my nose and mouth. I think she wanted to prevent me from inhaling the exhaust from the lawn mower, but it only succeeded in making that chore even more miserable.

Ummm... my dad didn't let me say the word 'poop' (in Cantonese) for a while. I kept saying 'history' to annoy him (because the second syllable is the same as the one-syllable word 'poop' si2). Fun times :P

My mom used to be against using the word "poop", and would make us use substitute words...which I'd rather not share XD

They also used to be against words like stupid and dumb and crap, which of course doesn't take any effect as of now (I can't count the number of times I say crap a day)

And to this day, my mom is still against using words like fart, freaking, screw, etc.

My parents also refused to let me use the monkey bars on our playset back in Maryland because when I was 2, I jumped off the top of a slider at about the same height and broke my wrist.

My parents have gotten mad at me because I skipped the stairs XD
Though I'd be surprised if at least half of the site didn't do this at some point

Not really sure if this would be weird, but:
I'm not allowed to miss any school at all, my parents booked a flight back to China on June 10th (the last day of school of the school I'm attending in the United States) to make sure I would arrive back to China on the weekend and be able to attend school on the following Monday. My parents also told my host family that I only could miss school if I was in the hospital dying.

If you mean 'la shi', no, that's Mandarin, lol.

Meh, that's not weird. Westerners are the weird ones... yesterday, my mum showed me a news article where a family took their daughter to Disneyland and sued the school because they made her pay a fine.
