I'm a parent and I agree with this completely---The number one job of parents is to keep their kids safe. But, there’s a fine line between keeping them safe – and being overprotective.  And sometimes that fine line gets blurred a bit.


Here’s a rundown of some ways your overprotective parents may have traumatized their kids while growing up:

Telling you Halloween candy is filled with poisoned razor blades.

Keeping you away of any and all windowless vans.

Warning you that sports are dangerous and you will lose an eye if you try to play them.

Explaining that everyone is trying to steal your bag at all times.

Keeping you out of public bathrooms, because wackos are in there. (BuzzFeed.com)
