I have a friend who grew up with a step-dad who was a Nazi. A cleaning Nazi.
She would get grounded if she left the milk out for 10 seconds longer than it took he to pour a drink He made her vacuum all the stairs everyday. If she neglected to do any of her daily chores she would be grounded for weeks.
I recently found out he made her rake the carpet. YES RAKE THE CARPET!!!
I am so grateful for my parents. I wouldn't change a thing about the way I was raised.
Just thought they should know.
