Every kid thinks their parents are weird, annoying, or just too strict. Despite all that, though, things that happen in most childhood homes are usually pretty commonplace.
However, certain parents really do take weird to a different level. And their kids go to Reddit to reveal the stories.
From Redditor /u/startin2stack:
[My parents made me wear] Saran wrap around my arms/legs to avoid creams/lotions from rubbing off when I went to school.
From Redditor /u/surfrock66:
[My parents] told me my feet were size 18 and went WAY out of the way to buy WAY more expensive shoes to tell everyone I have the biggest feet ever... I'm currently 34 and wear a 13. I had no idea you weren't supposed to have that much room at the front.
From Redditor /u/Tgunner192:
We had a small empty closet in the house I grew up on. A couple times a month my dad would tell me to stand in it with the door closed for a minute or two. He said it was elevator practice.
From Redditor /u/ikevinax:
We had to eat all cheese items outside.
