Whats your parents crazy advice?

As a child my dad would always tuck my sheets real tight under the matress. To make the sheets really taut. Said if you get a draft on your back, it give you kidney chills....

Makes no sense what so ever and looking back i have no idea why he thought this to be practical.

Any of your parents give you bunk advice or use old wives tale recipes on you?
