Breakfast Blog: Your Parents Said No!

When Ed was asked by his son if he could download SnapChat, Ed stood firm and said "no!". So this morning we asked what were you denied as a kid!

Parents scolding teenagers

Your suggestions were varied and, to be honest, odd!


Judy in Romsley wasn't allowed to have chip butties as her mom said they were "too common"!

Chris was banned from listening to Madness just in case it corrupted him, and Mason wasn't allowed to watch The Simpsons!

John was told to "never have a bath until half an hour after his tea", which we found out Ed says to his kids too!

Caroline in Selly Oak was told that if she watched the Teletubbies she'd grow up unable to speak properly. And her dad STILL goes to grab her hand when the cross the road!
