Coming from an Indian family definetly has its ups & downs. The pros being showered with expensive gifts, being spoiled, and having minimal restrictions on things. However, the cons include having strict cultural beliefs - which can cause one to not be able to do what they wish. The point I'm getting at is, when I was younger my mom used to hit me when I used to do something wrong or get bad grades. Edit: Sorry, I had to use the next 2 posts to finish up what I was saying. For some reason, my uploading speeds on my computer are really damn slow.
