Most Annoying Things Parents Say to Their Children

Alexandr

The Top Ten

1 Because I said so.

It means they have no good reason for whatever they're trying to get their children to do.

I love how everyone on the list is being so hypocritical and saying stuff that their parents say, even though they say half of what's on here. - Drawbox

The excuse for mothers when they know they're wrong and they have no more line of defense for their argument.

The only reason parents say this is an excuse when they don't have a good reason. SOOO annoying!

2 Shut up

I HATE THIS and when you try respond they think your insulting them

That's what they say when I'm right in an argument and they just got no answer anymore - Bruna

My response:Make me scrub - Nateawesomeness

HOW COULD ONE OF MY FAVORITE INSULT WORDS BE ON THIS LIST!?!?

3 If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all

That is the most pathetic saying I have ever heard, and the biggest sickness that society has created. Seriously, anything in the world deserves criticism. Yes, even this comment.

The world isn't all peaches and cream you know.

Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't - Alexandr

This doesn't always apply to some cases, but applies to some. Like when criticizing someone.Take Jacob Sartorious for an example. People Criticize him, and his fangirls be like 'Ooh you can't criticize him he's only 13 if u have nothing good to say don't say at all.'Does anyone even realise anything in the world has flaws and there would be at least one person who dislikes said person.

6 Mother knows best

IN TANGLED "MOTHER" WAS A CRAZED KIDNAPPER WHO CLEARLY STATED THAT MOTHER KNOWS BEST. AND IF I REMEMBER RIGHT NEVER TALK TO STRANGERS OR CRAZIES. SO IF MOTHER DOES NOT WANT YOU TALKING TO THEM THAT MEANS YOU SHOULD NOT TAKE THEIR ADVICE OR BELIEVE WHAT THEY SAY. SO MOTHER DOES NOT KNOW BEST!

What if "Mother" was a murderer?. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Damn, age has nothing to do with maturity.

God knows that she doesn't.

8 Finish your dinner, there are starving kids in Africa!

Send the damn food to Africa, then!

You're eating your fill, kids. Still, all the more for those starving kids, right? - PositronWildhawk

They should have started a service where unfinished food is scraped into this mini fridge, and in the afterNoon the guys would come, bring he food to the airport, and send it to Africa.

Me: Then I don't want to eat I want to feed these to african kids. - p_stickman

10 Sticks and stones will break your bones, but words will never hurt you

My response when one of my strict teachers said that to me In a negative tone:And yet you cried when you got dumped by 75% of this worlds population - Nateawesomeness

No, words CAN lead to suicide in some cases. People are dumb these days.

Then why are we allowed to play with sticks and stones by can't curse in class or on TheTopTens? - AlphaQ

The Contenders

11 If your friends jumped off a cliff, would you do it too?

There's a big difference between you getting something just because your friends did and you jumping off a cliff just because your friends did it. Just because I want or do something because my friends did it or have it doesn't mean I'll go as far as to jumping off a cliff simply because they did it. So, how can you ask me such a stupid question? Of course not. There's a line mother, that separates such things, certainly you'd know that by now?

Yeah, because if my friends jumped off a cliff, the bridge would probably be on fire or in an earthquake or something. Because my friends are completely sane people and they wouldn't jump off a bridge without a good reason.

People always assume I'm copying my friends which I don't. I do always hang out with them. Why would people ask me that? If they had to, they'll have a good reason. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

No because my friends won't do it. - AlphaQ

13 When I was your age

Yes, maybe you had different problems in your time, we have different problems in our time too. Stop acting like we're ungrateful, or like we don't understand, we do. It's just that things are much different now. There are things that we have to deal with that you didn't in your time.

When I was your age I wanted to be an surgeon and I hope you become like me too

"When I was your age I didn't have an iphone"
Yeah because iPhones didn't even EXIST when my parents were my age and the first iphone was released in 2007 and my parents grew up in the 80s? - Lunala

When I was your age we had no mobile phones...

When I was your age we all behaved well...

When I was your age I was smart...

OKOKOKOKOKOK! JUST STOP IT NOW! How would you feel if you are repeated this nonsence every 1 second of your life?

14 You’re only young once

And your old like your comebacks - Nateawesomeness

You're as old as your comebacks. - AlphaQ

And you're forever old,

15 I'm an adult!

Just because I'm 11 that doesn't mean I'm an adult.

And I'm a kid,everyone is equal,stop breaking the constitution - Nateawesomeness

Who cares?!?!? "All men were created equal" to quote the declaration of independance - slytherinforever

Just a lame excuse. :P

16 I'm the parent and you are the child
17 How was school today?

I always respond with one word : fine - Skullkid755

THEY ARE TRYING TO BE NICE. NOW SHUT UP - hype

Little Timmy: (Comes home from school crying)
Mom: How was school today?
Little Timmy: You can't see me crying?! - mayamanga

18 Listen to your sister.

This is the most irresponsible thing a parent could say to a child. What the hell? I have a younger brother and I'm not responsible for him. I'm not his mom. - Bruna

Even parents don't know exactly what they are doing let alone the SISTER. - Bruna

Mum tells me to listen to my sister when mum has to do errands but Being middle sister is fun. My little brother is usually either sleeping or not in the house. My big sister gets more power but as long as she's in a good mood she treats me well. He has to supervise me and Mum said she has to do the chores and work hard being my "role model" or whatever.

I don't have to deal with any of that (I do chores sometimes but not often being middle sibling is fun)

I'll be honest: I'm annoying at times but I'm usually nice. - Lunala

19 Why can't you be like your friend?
20 Do you have homework?

Don't you have work to do?

Do you have paperwork - Nateawesomeness
