Most Annoying Things Parents Say to Their Children
The Top Ten
This answer isn't really THAT annoying, but yes if my parents promise me something and afterwards they just say, "No." is pretty blood boiling.
But hey, still better answer than, "We'll see." THAT'S not even a proper answer!
Who put this here? A spoiled brat that can’t handle being told no? Grow up. - 3DG20
Ok fine, but if you can respond like that to me, I will do the same next time you want me to clean my room
Me: (At Disneyland) can I ride Star Tours and the Haunted Mansion?
Me: (at Disney World) can I ride Test Track?
Me: (at Six Flags Great Adventure) Can I ride El Toro and Nitro?
Me: (at Hersheypark) Can I ride Skyrush?
Me every single time: >:(
Like what? Doing our homework? Doing chores? - JoeBoi
No it really isn’t. - railfan99
Yes it is dumb ass - BananaBrain
My mom controls my life too much >:(
Just say back that you don't care - BananaBrain
I know it but I am a human being so you should respect me
Dumb quote is dumb
That’s a smartass right there. - JoeBoi
The excuse for mothers when they know they're wrong and they have no more line of defense for their argument.
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
They are WAY to lazy to say a good reason. - Datguyisweird666
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!
Damn, age has nothing to do with maturity.
To be honest it does, because it means the parent has experienced way more than the kid - TheAwesomeDude54
What if "Mother" was a murderer?. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
My response:Nah not really since you just said that - Nateawesomeness
Ok, so by that logic, even child geniuses are too young to understand. Ok? - JoeBoi
The most annoying ever all the parent said this and the child will be angry because he don't understand
My response:At least I can UNDERSTAND a good reason to make your kids do something - Nateawesomeness
You're too old to understand,
Send the damn food to Africa, then!
Do parents have to mention the starving kids in Africa every time they tell their kids to finish their meals? Not to mention that that is kinda disrespectful to them. - JoeBoi
My parents don't say this because my dad's from Oakland but is Nigerian - TheAwesomeDude54
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.
This is a minor pet peeve of mine but I wish everybody in my house would let me do something without taking me in for questioning about it like they don't trust me! It's gotten to the point where they would ask me what I'm doing when I'm attempting to do the most mundane of things!
I just say your mom - BananaBrain
I always answer, Nothing'' to that question, even if it's obvious I'm doing something - WhatAreWeHaving4Lulz
Well, then this is the point where I can say mean things to you and justify myself. - JoeBoi
Yet they say mean things to us ALL THE TIME whenever they're mad at us...
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.
Oh for crying out loud its really a nursery rhyme.
It was written before 1872.
What next Rock-a-bye-baby, London Bridge is Falling Down and Jack and Jill.
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.
WRONG! Words DO hurt people. Including to the point where they commit suicide.
Uggh! I hate it when my parents say this to me! Have I mentioned I'm 13?! I shouldn't be grounded! I'm a teen! The only times teens get grounded is in the movies! And I get grounded for the littlest things, like swearing, which ticks me off! My mom swears every five seconds when she is angry. What a hypocrite! -CandyBlood13
I've gotten grounded for months at the ages of 8 and 9 - TheAwesomeDude54
I watch a lot of Go! Animate grounded series; it's way better than getting grounded.
I heard this from my parents several times
The same stuff over and over again
I learned that parents shouldn't be nosy. - BananaBrain
Not enough because I have to go back! - ThatIntrovertedEmo
There’s nothing usually important about this. - JoeBoi
When I was your age, there were no *insert 21st Century Item here*.
When I was your age, I woke up at 4 AM.
When I was your age, I played outside all day.
When I was your age, I studied all day.
When I was your age, I got perfect grades.
When I was your age, I walked to school.
When I was your age, I never talked back.
When I was your age, I behaved perfectly.
When I was your age, I helped my parents.
This should be number one. This is a parent's weapon for guilt tripping.
When I was your age, there were no video games.
When I was your age, we walked to school because they were no cars.
When I was your age, there were no phones.
Thinking : I wish you were taught to be quiet when you were my 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.
I know! Parents really don't understand what we go through now. My dad grew up in a war but that doesn't mean I don't know what it's like to be stressed and want to be cool and popular and get good grades and have time for Cheer and everything else AND free time! SO I GET THAT PARENTS HAD HARD THINGS TO LIVE THROUGH BUT SO DO WE! - Swiftdawn
When I was your age I wanted to be an surgeon and I hope you become like me too
I HATE THIS and when you try respond they think your insulting them
My parents say that to me sometimes. Ugh I hate that word every time I talk they say "Shut Up! " One night my mom told me to shut up for no reason. Ugh! - andrewteel
That's what they say when I'm right in an argument and they just got no answer anymore - Bruna
I wont shut up I don't shut up - Ghosty
My dad said the same thing expect he said "bridge" instead of "cliff" - DrayTopTens
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 one is perfect, so why practice? - TheCobainDomain
No one is perfect. No need to practice. - AlphaQ
Haven't they heard the term 'practice makes perfect'
No one is perfect dumbass - BananaBrain
Just because I'm 11 that doesn't mean I'm an adult.
Literally no one cares - BananaBrain
Who cares?!?!? "All men were created equal" to quote the declaration of independance - slytherinforever
And I'm a kid,everyone is equal,stop breaking the constitution - Nateawesomeness
And then as soon as you watch something for slightly older people they say "you're to young for this" not my parents but I heard many do - Unnamed Google User Remade
Me: I like Disney's Hercules
Mom: You're too old for Disney's Hercules!
This can lead to serious shocks, like Looney Tunes, my parent's don't but some do... Looney Tunes just isn't just for kids, but has several innapropiate material like all the violence, jokes about flipping off and stopping once someone mentions a censorship group and ALL THE CROSS DRESSING! - Maddox121
I'm not too old. Mom just doesn't understand - Ghosty
Well, I came home with a headache and I’m clearly upset, so how do you think it went? - 3DG20
I always respond with one word : fine - Skullkid755
So annoying, all I say is good, because if a say bad they'll annoy me till' I tell them. It's none of their buisness! - Hazelfrost
TERRIBLE. My teacher is being mean to me AGAIN!
And your old like your comebacks - Nateawesomeness
You're as old as your comebacks. - AlphaQ
And you're forever old,
And you're older than your comebacks 😌 - BananaBrain
But u don't know that he's a drug dealer behind your back...
Basically if your friend die u die
Because I’m not my so called “friends”, nor do I want to be anything like them. If someone ever decides to come into my life and be a real friend to me, then I will give them that same treatment unlike what my “friends” did to me. - 3DG20
Yeah, and and she could’ve decided not to have you. How would you feel if your mom chose to have an abortion?
No, I didn't ask to be born, so you don't have anything over me. Sorry pal. - TwilightKitsune
Even though I wouldn't normally judge people like you, who cares if you asked to be born, you should do stuff for them because they said so - TheAwesomeDude54
But you chose to give birth to me. It was your decision, nobody else’s, so why should I pay for it? - 3DG20
You made the decision to have kids, and with that, came providing them with a good early life. Your kid doesn't owe you anything for your decision to have a kid in the first place. - Haumea
Sometimes my mom won't even let me USE them >:(
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
Just remember that your sister isn’t your parent. - Userguy44
Mum: SHUSH I'M READING A Facebook POST!
Me: Mum I don't care it's important!
Eddie: Mummy! Can you fix my Transformer for me?
Mum: Of course I can, Eddie!
Me: the HELL?!?!
Mum: don't care I'm a bear
Eddie: me sucks
What the heck
Don't you have work to do?
Yes I do, punish me for lying - TheAwesomeDude54
Do you have paperwork - Nateawesomeness
No ofc not - BananaBrain
If you had to get spanked with whatever the heck your parents could find, you wouldn't be so ungrateful - TheAwesomeDude54
They were raised in a deep hole and they didn't have electronics. If I saw how they have rotten there I would magically fix all of my problems and I would be a slave or what? - WhatAreWeHaving4Lulz
So what of u lived in a hole stealing from the crazy old lady next door for food? I don't! - slytherinforever
I'm texting god to get me off of this planet so I don't have to deal with you anymore - BananaBrain
Or even worse, the dreaded "you're noT wATchInG sOMethiNg BAAAaad ArE YA? "
Sometimes when people ask me this, I’m not even texting. I might be writing a story, searching for something on the internet, or even writing a comment or a post. Why do they always assume when they see you typing on your device that you’re texting somebody? - 3DG20
Oh yeah I'm texting Hitler that he is a bad person then checking Area 51's personal Snapchat page then I'm thinking of texting YOU LEAVE! - Swiftdawn
My parents are Asian and they force me to study 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Mom: Do your homework!
Me: Uh yeah I already did it.
Mom: I DON'T CARE, DO YOUR HOMEWORK!
Me: Uh... Oh seriously - Swiftdawn
*kids shouldn't be here alert* what if me and my boyfriend are kissing? Then I want to close the door! That happened once, we were on my bed in a very comfortable position and making out and then I quickly got up and closed the door because I have an older sister and a younger brother and sister so that is not appropriate for the young ones, and we continued, then mom yells outside my door but we continue kissing and she barges in and we break apart, blushing and she says, "NO TOUCHING, NOW KEEP YOUR DOOR OPEN SO I CAN SEE IF YOUR MAKING TROUBLE! " Oh God so embarrassing also scared me to death. So annoying I mean, my younger brother and sister? Hello? - Swiftdawn
What if me and my boyfriend are kissing
You're not supposed to be kissing. Teen pregnancy isn't allowed in this house
And who cares if you have younger siblings? Everyone complains about getting scarred for life, yet if you end up scarred for life, you're way too sheltered - TheAwesomeDude54
Um there's a reason for that?
During the summer I turn the A/C on when I sleep and whenever I want to close the door he won't let me. He doesn't have an A/C in his room. I have offered him a space to sleep in my room but he still insists on leaving the door open and sleeping in his own room instead.
OH MAH GOD that's gotta be the most annoying thing ever like they tell me to clean my room and I close the door and they say, Oepn the dor so I culd se what ar you doing'' - WhatAreWeHaving4Lulz
So they can hit, punch, kick, and even kill? Wow! What a great quote! (Sarcasm) - Datguyisweird666
They didn't say they couldn't do it without getting arrested - TheAwesomeDude54
But what if they get arrested - HelloWhyImHere2
So you’re saying you can even abuse your kid? No, that’s illegal! - JoeBoi
As soon as I hear this I know another day of survival of the fittest begins, so annoying!
My parents, especially my Dad, has always said this to me.
Wow! That’s taking it TOO FAR! So you’re threatening to send your kids away? - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX
I was threatened this before :(
OK YOU'LL GET ARRESTED
Yes, because YOU raised me. - Rocko
My parents mostly my mom ask me that.
Or they call you useless
Parents don't say that to their kids. They DO say "Stinky! " but only to little kids who just pooped their diapers.
Ugh. My dad is always saying something like this.
Me: well it isn't my fault I don't have or forgot to put on deoderant.
Why? Is there going to be a family gathering in my room? - 3DG20
What if the child isn’t even arguing though? What if they’re being accused of doing something they didn’t and they’re just trying to explain themselves? Is that arguing? - 3DG20
Wow, you're an adult. Big whoop! Like that means anything.
My dad thinks kids are banned from doing what they like and adults can do ANYTHING they like.During lent when we were collecting eggs made out of chocolate and we weren't allowed to eat any my dad ate one.i asked him why and I said BECAUSE I'M AN ADULT AND I CAN DO WHAT I LIKE
I'm not arguing, I'm explaining.
They are big fat swearers
Isn't that how a bloody conversation works? - WheresMyGuitarPick
Because of you are under 12, than the inappropriate movie you are watching might "get you scarred for life" - TheAwesomeDude54
I'm 26 and I recently watched "Showgirls" and my mom walked in while one of the nude scenes were on and she was like "You shouldn't watch this cause it's too inappropriate for you".
How is a movie with nudity "too inappropriate" for a 26 YEAR OLD?
99.9% of the time, this means “no”
This wouldn’t work with new parents since a lot of them are always nice enough to film themselves giving birth for views. - 3DG20
