Top Ten Lame Things Adults Do to Pre-Teens

The Top Ten

1 Pick on Them for Their Looks

DON'T EVER POINT OUT YOUR KIDS WEIGHT OR LOOKS AND THAT THEY SHOULD CHANGE IT. THAT HURTS PEOPLE REALLY BAD - JelloLife

My mom calls me fat and makes me go on an instant diet when I gain ONLY 1 LB! (I’m Asian)

2 Talk About Their Future

My relatives are Asian and they think that every kid should either have a boyfriend/girlfriend or be a doctor when we grow up

3 Be Rude to Their Friends

If we are suppose to respect all grown ups then you respect our friends. I hate it when people might not let their kids hang out with someone because they're 'bad influence' on them and that mostly is because the other kid is a punk or goth. - JelloLife

4 Tell Them They're on the Internet Too Much

Everyone is too much on the internet. - JelloLife

5 Judge Their Style

Well I have a sidecut now and it covers my eye and I really hate it when grown ups see you and they're like "when are you going to get a hair cut? :)" even though they know that you like yourself that way. - JelloLife

6 Not Let Them Be Themselves

I really hates it when parents don't let their kids be themself like forcing them to be in a religion or not letting them listen to the music they like or not letting them wear what they want.

Like my mom is always trying to hover over me and change how I act, what I like, how I dress

7 Treat Them Like a Baby

My great aunt speaks to me and my cousins and sister like we're 2 year olds. WE'RE TEENS AND GROWNUPS, NOT TODDLERS! >:(

Jeez, When will they ever learn that we kids grow up and don't stay little kids forever? It's so annoying.

8 Explain Everything They Do

We get how ______ works we just wanted to make a joke...

9 Tell Them to Grow Up

Usually being told off.

Mom: "Grow up."
Me: "I WILL NOT F-ING GROW UP, YOU B-! "

10 Not Give Them Any Private Life

If you're going to have a child then please give them privacy. - JelloLife

I can't agree with this enough - LizardKing99

Horrible

The Contenders

11 Make Commentary While Watching Movies

Whenever my mom and I watch a movie together she always talks and comment about EVERYTHING that’s going on in the movie. I WANT TO WATCH THE MOVIE IN PEACE, NOT WITH YOU CONSTANTLY TALKING! >:(

12 Be Overprotective

I am 26 and my mom still will not allow me to go places unsupervised, not even to a store that’s just across the street from my house!

13 Enforce Early Bedtime

My bedtime during high school was 9 pm during school nights

14 Say No to Everything

Can I do this? No
Can I go here? No
Can I buy this with my own money? No
