I don’t question my parents’ rules in our house until I’m in the age of reason. I remember that time when I cannot have a spree with my PlayStation for about a month because.. it’s evil. My brother, in high school, can’t join the Karate Club because he will get hurt. What? Says who? What’s the basis? But see, we’re dependents so we better just follow.

A recent questionable parenting is that of Beck Laxton and Kieran Cooper, who didn’t reveal their child’s gender until his 5th age. Sasha is anatomically a boy but they dress him in a girl’s clothes and play with dolls. They even let Sasha decide which clothes to wear in school, either a girl or a boy’s uniform.

Our judgment won’t matter because it’s parents’ choice. Here are more strange parenting practices that ought to raise our eyebrows.

Amy Chua

When daughter Lulu could’t play a piano piece, Amy would “threaten her with no lunch, no dinner, no Christmas or Hanukkah presents, no birthday parties for two, three, four years. When she still kept playing it wrong, I told her she was purposely working herself into a frenzy because she was secretly afraid she couldn’t do it. I told her to stop being lazy, cowardly, self-indulgent and pathetic.”

Lina Medina

Lina gave birth to her eldest at the age of 5 years old and 7 months. How does this happen? She is suffering from Precocious Puberty. So with early sexual development, she gave birth and regards her son a mere younger brother. She even prefers dolls that spending time with her son. The sad case is that they never knew who the father was.

The Duggar Family

With 20 children so far this 2012, Duggar family is huge. And they plan to have as much children as possible.

They are happy, debt free and self-supporting. I hope they think of forming their own Duggar football team!

Michael Jackson

We know the story. Michael is an overprotective father. He doesn’t want his children to be picked on just because their father sings thriller, so everytime they’ll go public, they have to wear masks. They never go schooling with other kids, but adhered on homeschooling. Well, I guess they’re stucked at home for a long time.

Steve Russo

Perhaps Steve would do all it takes to ensure manhood of his son. He organized a party with alcohols like vodka and rum, and a stripper’s pole. Photos are idiotically uploaded to Facebook, which favored his arrest for “giving booze to minors, endangering the welfare of children and corruption of minors”.

Do you have any unconventional parenting experiences within your family?
