“Before the age of 14, I had never been to a sleepover, been allowed to talk to a friend on the phone, eaten in a restaurant, watched a television show, listened to the radio, read a non-Christian book, or even worn a pair of jeans.”
Oh, the horror!
Apparently, even the Christian ones didn't really "stick" with her.
Actually it is a horror. It's insane to raise kids that way.
No kid should be raised in that strict of an environment. More often than not kids I have seen raised like that rebels when they get out in life via drugs, alcohol, porn or sluttiness or become atheist.
Yeah, what a horror! By the age of fourteen I had been expected to do everything I could to help out for about ten years. I had been walking behind a plow for four years, cutting firewood longer than that, picking cotton for half my life. Gathering and husking corn to feed the stock, gathering the eggs, feeding, milking the cow, the list goes on and on. I actually did get to watch TV and listen to the radio, read interesting books and wear jeans. I suppose I had it made in the shade as we used to say in Carolina but only someone who has grown up spending his summer “vacations” from school walking back and forth across a field behind a plow in the South Carolina sun has any idea of what it was like.
My mother would have strangled anyone who suggested to her that any woman should have an abortion.
