Top Ten Things Your Parents Do That You Don't Like

The Top Ten
1 Be over-protective

One time I wasn't allowed to watch a movie because it had people in it, even though it had nothing inappropriate.

I'm not allowed to do anything social online... So I guess voting on this list was against my parents' wishes.

My mom is Asian and she thinks that I will get instant diabetes if I eat just ONE TINY BITE of dessert...

2 Don't let you do things you want to do

Like, when my dad says only Mom will go to Walmart alone and I have to stay in the car, it makes me sad in an instant, because I can't pick anything at the store myself, it's not fun. No matter whether it's sunny or rainy, day or night, near or far, whether my little sis throws tantrum or not, whether I misbehave or not, whether we need a little or a lot, I just don't like it at all, no matter what. And I'm even afraid that Dad might constantly lecture me the whole time while Mom is off to Walmart alone without me.

I feel like this list is generalizing parents, not all of them are bad. Also, it wouldn't be good if they let you do literally anything. Ever heard of discipline?

They get to enjoy what they like themselves!

3 Judge you

They are doing it.They don't like the fact that I am not an extrovert person or other things

On how you talk

4 Listen to old music

What's wrong with old songs? Like, one day, in my sixth grade year, I heard Dad playing some rare old Hindi songs from the 60s and 70s on his computer. Those songs enticed me so much that I felt they had to be better than that stupid Tamil song Appadi Podu that Mom made me sing on my punishment day in the same year.

What I hate is that whenever I'm around, they always play cringe Indian songs or Hindu god songs. They sometimes even sing along with them too. I just hate whenever they sing in general. It gets stuck in my head and I hate it! It gives me a cringe attack.

It's better to appreciate the classic, old music back then, rather than listening to modern music that's loud, brainwashing, dumb, etc...

5 Sing to modern songs

My dad always sings those modern Bengali songs at a very loud volume, like Tumi Robe Nirobe, ugh, it's so boring! He sings so horribly, even worse than Atif Aslam or Honey Singh!

My dad always changes the word "you" to "poo" and sings in public, it's really embarrassing.

They can't even sing

6 Pretend to understand you

Nobody seems to take me seriously because I am shy-ish and short. Everyone thinks I am all cute, small and innocent when I just want to be understood.

Don't mess with short people when they're angry, despite my petite physique I can flip furniture across the room if I am mad enough.

7 Review your music

Apparently anything I like is automatically trash. I like Nicki Minaj when I talk about her my dad acts like she's the worst thing to ever happen to this world. My parents, especially my dad think EVERYTHING I LIKE is trash

Like, my dad doesn't like K-Pop. He can't even stand Atif Aslam or Honey Singh. He thinks the song Chain Khuli Ki Main Khuli has a horrible picturization. He prefers ghazal-type music, like of Jagjit Singh, Ghulam Ali, or Mehdi Hassan. But we both hate Ek Chumma from Housefull 4. And my mom doesn't like sad songs or stupid songs.

I'm secretive about music taste. Last time I said I wanted to look into liking a band my mum said "It's your big sister's thing, not yours".

rip potential music taste, why I hate all songs by that band.

8 Compare you to other kids

This is way to relatable

9 Listen to modern pop music

My mom ruined Senorita, Moves Like Jagger, and Sorry Not Sorry for me. I am NOT showing her Taylor Swift unless she gets me her merch, takes me to one of her concerts or gets Taylor Swift to meet me in person.

My mum singing my favourite songs has ruined the songs for me.

Please don't tell me your parents listen to One Direction.

10 Blame you for what your siblings did
The Contenders
11 Not feel sympathy for you

Once my mom yelled at me in front of my relatives and made me cry in public and she refused to apologize to me even though she scared (and also embarrassed) me! >:(

12 Constantly remind you to do stuff

My dad constantly reminds me to be kind, even when I am not being mean or rude or anything. And he only tells me to be kind, he never tells me to be brave, be smart, be mature, be wise, be honest, be confident, be obedient, be dynamic, be adventurous, be inspired, be hardworking, be creative, be productive, or anything else. I wish it could stop right now.

13 Expect you to apologize when you do something wrong but they refuse to apologize to you

Especially if you don't feel like apologizing...

14 Watch movies that you can't
15 Threaten you

Even when they helping you out. Do that chore you already did or I won't help at all damn it

Don't remind me.I don't want to talk about it.Plus my dad threatened me if I wouldn't know the answer to a question he would slap me.

16 Force you to do things that you don't want to do

I'm born into a Hindu family, but I consider myself agnostic. Been this way since middle school, but realized it during high school. If I told them this, they would probably be mad. Either way, they wouldn't support it and tell me some nonsense that everyone is religious and has to do religious stuff and if one isn't religious, they will have bad discipline and become bad people.

My parents are very religious, mostly my mom though. She forces my little brother and I to partake in pointless prayers or rituals. Sometimes, we're forced to go to temple. It sucks when we have to stay there for long periods like two hours or more. We're forbidden from eating beef and forced to be vegetarian on religious days. I hate it so much.

Three months ago when I left to college, I have been breaking these rules behind their back.

I am 23 years old, and my mom wakes me up in the early morning to check my e-mails and grades, pay my bills for financial matters, such as Wells Fargo, Mohela, FAFSA, and seek new doctors, ugh, and all I want to do is just writing stories all day long, that I just want to break into temper tantrums!

17 Ignore you

Even worse is the silent treatment. Once my dad got so mad at me that he refused to talk to me for several days despite the fact that I was trying to apologize.

My dad does this to me whenever he's SUPER angry. It's really hurtful and I really want to apologize and explain my feelings.

Quite annoying, but I've gotten used to it.

18 Yell

My dad is doing it a lot

19 Spank you

My dad did that to me.

20 Treat you like an immature person

Man I sure wish this was added sooner. My parents only see me as immature when I start showing it, yet if I'm mature (which is most of the time) I never get recognized by them. And then my mother spends her days at home playing on her iPhone and my father complains about literally everything else (who yells at the T.V., honestly).

My Mum accuses me for bring immature and swears at me for no reason. She even takes her anger out on me.

21 Ask about your period repeatedly

My mum does this when I am tired or not feeling well. Then she goes on about... umm Vajayjays and Puberty stuff IN PUBLIC and I tell her I feel awkward but she says "Nobody cares." UGH

This isn't a bad thing, it's rather funny because I could totally relate to this! Every time I'm not feeling well, my mom would ask the same thing lol. I respect how she at least cares though, cuzz I've had really bad cramps before and she was always there for me

22 Reprimand/criticize you for every little thing

When I was in eighth grade, while I was sitting on the sofa doing my homework, I accidentally dropped a cookie on the floor, not knowing I stepped on it, but when Dad came, he got extremely angry at me for smashing the cookie and ruining the floor.

I dropped something, she calls me clumsy.
I carry heavy objects, she thinks that I will injure myself. (object is only like 20 lbs)
I accidentally made my sister mad or cry, she screams at me like I've murdered someone.

Story of my life here.

23 Compare you to other kids that have higher grades than you

This is at an unreasonably low rank for what it means. Parents love to compare you to that one friend who has higher grades than you (let's call him Bob). However, if you do better on a test than Bob did, they will say, "Don't compare yourself to Bob. You should only compare yourself to those who are better than you."
In this case, you'd want to say, "Excuse me, but how many times have you said that Bob is better then me? He can't suddenly be worse than me just because he did poorly on a single test, right? According to you, mom, Bob is smarter, more talented, and more polite than me by far." However, you can't say anything because you know that your parents will find some ridiculous excuse to cover themselves up.

My mom is so annoying. She always like "How come your friend is in the top of the class? How come you're just average? You should learn how to be like her! " And I can't talk back because I have to RESPECT my parents(even when they barely respect me).

24 Not compromise
