I never hid my stuff, I had good hiding places because I'm one of those potential hoarders though...but I never had a reason to hid anything, I kept my stuff in plain sight.

People that report people on AP are like the kids in elementary school that would tell the teachers I'm making Sally touch my boy-part in the back closet again.

Thats something that I think I would want to be told if I were a teacher.

unused tape deck in my old boom box in my closet. my parents don't check there. sometimes i even forget to check there. its a great place.

I loveeee hiding stuff especially money so well that I don't find it, forget about it then find it weeks/month/years later. I found about 80 bucks of high school grad money stuff in the back of my desk when I got home this weekend, excellent times.

Out of courtesy I just keep my smokes in my car. My mom knows, but we don't speak about it.

When I was younger though, behind my desk in my room (essentially so tough to get to that I didn't bother with the stuff there unless I really fucking had to have it.

Haha, some of my friends parents are like that. I don't have an issue when everyone else is obviously ok with it. I was at a friends place with her, her mother and her brother, it was like 2.30am and they randomly just switched over to SBS and there was some softcore porn thing on it and it wasn't a big deal with them.

If that had happened at my house there would've been INSTANT channel flicking followed by an INSTANT change in the temperature in the room. It would've become tense and weird. It's not so bad with Dad anymore, because once you reach a certain age the dynamic changes and now we're pretty good friends. But growing up, mostly it was mum, there was this big stigma about it. We weren't allowed to swear either, or have toy guns, or play shooting games on ANY gaming system.

I was definitely censored as a child.

And as for the child raising part, it depends on whether I can. I'd love to be able to talk to them about it and not have them feel the way I do about it cos it's seriously debilitating sometimes, but it's not a part of my life I've ever taken a look at before so there'd probably be a whole lot of therapy needed to get me to that point :p

God, my family is the exact same way. Even now, when I'm watching TV with my parents and my brother (who is 19) if there is even any kissing in a movie either my dad will fast forward it or it'll just get really tense and awkward like you said. I also wasn't able to swear or really do much of anything when I was younger, because with a nurse as a mom and a teacher as a dad, either I was going to die or going to do all the bad things my dad's students would do whenever I left their sight.

It sucks being really sheltered as a kid mostly because now I feel like I can't really talk about anything with my parents. Like I never tell them about any girls who are in my life, or tell them really much about my personal life at all. It's like there's this wall between us because we're just so different from each other now because of how prude (for lack of a better word) they are, and I've basically turned into the exact opposite of that. When I'm with my friends I'm actually normally the really offensive kid who says things too loud in public, and I drink and do things which would just absolutely shock them. As soon as I step inside my house though I have to turn back into this polite, goodie-goodie kid, because otherwise I feel like my family would just be absolutely shocked at who I am when I'm not around them.

Good luck with raising your kids differently though. I have a younger brother who's 12 years younger than me, and every time I'm supposed to be taking care of him I find myself acting exactly like my dad did with me, despite the fact that I feel like it wasn't really the best way of going about things...

Ahh man that sucks. Thankfully I wasn't pushed to the point of acting out completely. When I was 17/18 I had a bit of a stage where I acted out just to see what it was like but it wasn't a constant thing, just occasionally. Yeah we're the exact same if it's stuff like that, only we don't fast forward.

The worst part is when it's a movie that my parents really want to watch. And something will come up they're not comfortable with and they'll ask us to leave the room so they can watch it without feeling awkward. That's just... terrible. And it makes me wonder why the hell it's so awkward.

On a different note, and also the reason that I don't act out because of it, is that I only really started seeing it as an "issue" in the past few years, in high school I just thought that was my family dynamic and there was nothing wrong with it. And I guess, in a sense that's true, but still, being repressed to that extent is terrible.

And as for how you treat your little brother, it's really hard to do. Pushing your understanding, your brainwashing for lack of a better word, aside to treat someone properly is damn near impossible. But as long as you're open with him, he'll talk to you about more things.

I have the exact same distance with my parents and brother. I love them, don't get me wrong, but there's something about them that feels like no matter what happens, i'll never be as close with them as I'd like. I'm not even really sure if they like who I am as a person.

But then again, that's just me.
