  • Of course some people, parents and otherwise, are very uptight. Some people are very strict, parents and otherwise. Everyone is different, so of course some people will me more this and more that.

  • That will be defined differently by each person.

    Yes I think some are too strict, just as I think some aren't strict enough!

  • some parents are very uptight.. it all depends on how you were brought up by your parents and the influence it had on your life. Then again some parents let their kids get away with anything. I think the latter outnumbers the former tho cuz there are a LOT of out of control kids.

  • Sometimes I feel myself becoming too uptight. I try to remember to ease up, but it's hard. I am sure that I am far from the MOST uptight person though. I come from a pretty laid back family so my uptight is probably somewhere around normal!

  • Being uptight and being strict are two totally different things IMO. I'm strict on certain things, but am nowhere near being uptight about it. I have my boundaries that I set and I don't give in to them.

  • I think some parents are very uptight, they expect their kids to be perfect.

  • I am too uptight a lot actually. I expect everything to be just so and if it isn't, I have a really hard time coping. We let loose and have fun too though.
