Tomorrow is Halloween, and different parents have different rules around Halloween. Like limiting how much candy kids can have, or letting them trick-or-treat on their own.  But how strict were your parents in general when you were a kid?

About 50,000 people recently took a survey on Reddit. Here are some of the results from the survey they did:

  • Did they ever ground you? Only 54% of people said they got grounded as a kid.
  • Did they limit your TV or Internet hours? 44% said yes.
  • Were you allowed to watch R-rated movies? 56% of us were.
  • Did you have to be in bed by a certain time when you were in elementary school?  81% of us did. And 30% also had a set bedtime in high school.
  • Were you allowed to swear in front of your parents? Only 19% said yes.
  • Did you have to make your bed every morning? 28% of us did.
  • If you just claimed you were sick, would they let you stay home from school? 42% said yes. 58% said they had to be VERY sick to stay home.

These days are dad even allowed to get the belt when you've been acting up?
