A 22-year-old girl, Jin, from the Henan province in central China, shared about how her mother performs the breathalyser test on her whenever she comes home late, to see if she had been out drinking.
Jin says that her mother also imposed a 10pm curfew on her, in addition to the ban on alcohol.
She shared that even after having dinner with her friends outside, her mother stays ready and armed with the breathalyser soon as she returns home.
She said that her mother is so strict that she is not allowed to be outside after 10pm or even drinking alcohol before she’s married.
The girl shared that she had never been caught once because she’s scared of her mother’s reaction, and that her mother would wait at home every time she goes out with her friends.
The post on Weibo generated intense discussions, with some netizens in China expressing agreement with the mother’s actions, saying it demonstrates responsible parenting.
Other netizens described it as being oppressive and suggested Jin run away from home.
