TODAY show host Sarah Abo has revealed she was treated like “the guinea pig” by her parents as a child.
In an adorable throwback with her two sisters, the 35-year-old TV host gave fans a glimpse into her childhood.
Sarah, the eldest of three girls, revealed that as a child she was “not allowed to do anything”.
“My parents were very strict, so I always had to push the boundaries when it came to liking a blue light disco night.”
Sarah’s sister Yara is quite old and two years younger than her, while her sister Shaz is the baby of the family.
The morning show host explained that she paved the way for her siblings to enjoy more freedom than her in their early teenage years.
“I was like, ‘Come on guys, all my friends are leaving and this was when I was maybe 15,” she said.
“But you know, my sisters had to leave when they were 12 or 13 – I was always the one the parents tested the rules on, and then my sisters just got through.”
“It was incredible, so lucky for her.”
But despite the different rules, Sarah and her sisters were always close.
