Top 10 Most Annoying Things About Parents

The Top Ten
1 They think you're lying even when you're telling the truth

One year ago my sister attacked me as she wanted to try the move she learned in her taekwondo class . It hurt a lot and then I tried to defend myself from her other attacks . In the process she got injured as I'm a krav maga black belt . She told mom that I injured her without any reason and she got furious . I told her I I wanted to hurt my sister I could have finished her in one strike. But no my mom didn't believed me and locked me in the bathroom for a whole day . No matter how much I told her that my sister started it she didn't believed me.

Mum told my me not to open a bottle of sauce for cooking & I did not. Then Mum accuses me for opening it which I didn't & threatens to beat me up!

So my mom gives me 200 pesos a day for my allowance. So that means 1000 a week. Sometimes she gives the whole 1000 to me on Monday, sometimes only 400 then gives me the rest on Wednesday. Last week (Actually, I'm not sure when), she gave me 400 on a Monday. I had a journalism contest then so I took it like normal. The contest lasted till Wednesday. That Wednesday morning, I was feeling depressed because I found out that I wasn't in the rankings so I ate my breakfast quickly, took my allowance and left for school to attend the awarding ceremony, which by the way, totally sucked. But the things is, the allowance I took was only 200 pesos. I didn't question it because in total, I received 600 pesos which was the norm for me in three days. The next day, Thursday, she didn't give me any and I took it in stride because I still had some allowance that the school gave me from the contest I participated in. However, come Friday and she still didn't give me the rest of my allowance, I ...more

Jeez, where do I begin?

Thanks to my older brother being autistic (he is, but I know it's bull cause he is stupid and most autistic people are smart), my mom overprotects that retard and he accuses me EVERY DAY for doing something I didn't do. What's worse is that he is nosy and won't mind his business. I can't count how many times he broke into the bathroom, screamed at me while I was taking a shower and tells my mom I'm not wearing clothes. Seriously, I get grounded just because I was taking a shower and I actually did lock the door, the clown breaks the door down with his fat belly (he's 5 times heavier than me). My mom says,"Ross, you keep breaking the doors down you ass, you're grounded." I'm seriously misunderstood. My brother keeps beating me up everyday and slaps my butt for no reason, I tell my mom and my mom just says "he wants to marry you." Also, his hearing is excellent and he can hear me whisper and that's the reason I am nowhere near my brother.

Also, the ...more

2 They say "because I said so"

Me doing homework. The mom comes. I look at her. She looks at the homework. "Do this part." She says. I tell her "That's not homework". "DO IT." the mom says. "The teacher didn't say." I say. "But I said." mom says. The agruement goes for a long time. Finally me do it.
Before handing in Homework-I rub it out. The teacher looks at our homework. "Sam. Come here." teacher says. "You are not meant to do this part". "He tells her "Mom told me to.". "Didn't you tell her? " the teacher says. "I did" Sam says. "Are you sure? " Me put me hand up. "That's what me mom said." "Really? " she says. "I rubbed it out before I handed it." I say. "O.K. I will talk to your parents at the parent/teacher interview." she says. Interview is a long time away.
A homework later. Me get homework. The mom looks. "Didn't you do this part? " Me say "No". She see's note left by the teacher. "O.K. I understand." The note says that parents shouldn't force what's on the homework because they are not up to it. A ...more

Because I said so is such a sorry reason for a kid to do something. The kid HAS to do it, but it lengthens the relationship distance between parent and child. It would be a lot better if parents gave their kids a valid reason or try positively lying. For example:

The wrong way to do it:
Parent: "Eat your vegetables son"
Child: "Why? "
Parent: "Because I said so"
Child: "I hate you"

The right way to do it:
Parent: "Eat your vegetables son"
Child: "Why"
Parent: "Because only cool people eat it and you'll be better at basketball. You do want to be a cool basketball player right? "
Child: "Yes! "
Parent: "Then you gotta eat your vegetables to become a cool basketball player! "
Chidl: "Okay! "

! One time my grandma made me some tomato soup and grilled cheese. I grabbed a bit spoon and she was like "No! That's a dinner spoon (since she labels them) we are having lunch! ". I said it wasn't a big deal and she said "Fine! Then I'm not serving you! Besides your too lazy anyways! " I went to go get it but then my brother knocked it out of my hands ( he's 8). It got all over her floor so she told me to go clean it up. I asked why and she said because I said so! I know she isint a parent but we basically live at her house!

I don't care what kind of authority figure you are, this will never EVER be a valid reason for anything. If you have a good reason for telling your kid to do/not do something then why not just tell them? And if you don't, why would you tell them to do it? You can't be a good example for your kids if you keep your motives a big mystery, so just explain stuff. It won't kill you.

3 They say you're getting an attitude when having an argument or just talking

Usually I'm talking to my father but then he thinks I'm "debating" or "getting an attitude". My mother is the same way but she's a little more... aggressive. So anyway today he thought I was debating and she jumps in. It was all because I had on pajamas but I wasn't going anywhere so why would I put in clothes? She jumped in and said pajamas. I was already wearing some so I was confused. She got mad at me because she thought I knew what they meant when I really didn't. I was trying to explain that he didn't specify at first and he told to stop talking. He was like " If you know the answer, why are you still talking? " Then they did something I really hate: talk at the same time. They both said, "If you don't want to wear, stay your ass upstairs! " Well I'll be damned. At least I had the decency to wear a bra under my pajama shirt!

Always. I told my mom that I was going to be starting my new seasonal weekend job and yelled at me about it. She said I complain about not having enough time for everything, and that it is to far from home. She is the one who told me to get a seasonal weekend job in the first place, and this one is a little closer to home than the one she made me apply for, and I haven't even been contacted about that one. I recently quit my other job, so I would have more time for my homework and pass all of my classes. I still have to pay for my car, insurance and save money for life though. Then a half hour later she took my dad and little sister out somewhere to eat, thinking I wouldn't know they were leaving because I was doing some homework, and didn't say anything to me. I had just left my room to get a little snack and heard my parents talking abut me. My mom said she didn't say anything to me because she was tired of me having an attitude, but I haven't had an 'attitude' with her.

Yes, totally! My mom (She's amazing, really) always says, "Maybe you could fix this by fixing your attitude." And she always does this slow-talking I'm-mad-so-stop voice. Also, she makes this super annoying mad face. UGH! And the whole I think you're lying thing is totally true too! And arguing and blaming on other people thing! I feel like parents are such hyprocrites sometimes (even though mine are so awesome and loving)! They tell you not to argue or have attitude, and then they start arguing, blaming, and having an even worse attitude because they yell or say a bad word! I know that they were graciously given by God to us to help us and lead us as earthly parents, but I don't think it's really fair that they can say and do everything we're not allowed to because actually, it's not a very good example. My parents are always telling my younger sister and me to be better than them, and I'd like to think that I won't do what every parent does wrong. But then again, I'll be part of ...more

You don't even know! One time I was discussing the matter of a sims 4 game (outdoor retreat) with my dad and he had promised as soon as it was released he would get it for me. I had been waiting SO long for it and then it finally came out. I asked my dad if I could get it and he said no! I mean, why promise me that I could get it then say no?! Anyway, I asked him why and he said 'you are getting an attitude' I mean, no, no I am not. I simply asked why because you promised me the game! But, yeah, because you are having a bad day, take it out on me so that I have one too. my dad is annoying me more and more these days. But yeah. I still don't have the game.

4 They get mad over small mistakes

Story of half my life. My mother refuses to apologize for any of it, too. For example, I own a small speaker for my phone to listen to music. I'm in the basement, listening at a semi-quiet volume. Mind you, my mom is upstairs doing laundry and you can't hear yourself think in there. She supposedly yells at me 3 different times to help her. You CANNOT hear a damn thing between the upstairs and the basement. So, instead of coming downstairs and simply asking for my help, she screams at my lazy ass step dad to get me out of my room. So he yells at me because, instead of finding the facts first, they assume I'm ignoring them. I tried to explain the problem and what really happened, but then they just sat there and ignored me. Even though all day I cleaned the ENTIRE 5 bedroom 3 bath house for them, and not even because I was told to. I did it to be nice. But they still tell me I'm being an arrogant prick because I couldn't hear my mom ONCE. I can't wait to find a job and leave. I'll ...more

"No one likes you"

"You're too lazy to even go to college"

"What do you even care about? Do you even care about anything at all? "

"No one is going to like you if you dress like that"

"Take that off it's stupid"

"You always want to start a fight"

"I'll really hit you"

"I'm done talking to you."

"Look at me"

"Just let it all out" (I was crying and my step-dad told me that in a sarcastic voice).

"No. You're just feeling sorry for yourself. You don't care about anyone, but yourself"

"You'll fit right in working at McDonald's, look at how lazy you are"

"Stop crying"

"Why are you crying? It's a simple task" (it's not simple when you're yelling at me for doing nothing to bother you! )

"You'll never get a boyfriend with that look"

"You're just disgusting"

"Just jump off a bridge why don't you? "

Etc., etc., there's still a ton of quotes all by my step-dad.

My mom got mad at me for not wanting meat in a Hot Cheetos Burrito from Taco La Villa and said it was expensive and the same price anyways.

I made a mistake I used shampoo instead of body wash when I had a shower for awhile and then today she asked me if I used it for body wash and I said yeah, and then she yelled at me, I feel stupid now that I didn't read it and it said shampoo

5 They compare you to other people, but when you say all the other kids are doing it or have it they tell you that you're not other kids

Me being a 15 year old boy belonging to the worst family ever need which, everyone keeps fighting with each other can say a lot about it. I feel very bad telling that they are looking after me just because they want to use me. They think when I'll grow up, I'll become their puppet and continue his business. All the hard work I do, and all the credit goes to my dad. My mom thinks that when I grow up, she will convince me and then I will make her famous. I have realised it but what about my younger brother? They have made it out that I have understood their intentions and that's why, I am being tortured and my younger brother is being supported. That is why my brother has forgotten all his manners and is now wicked. This happens with me everyday so I'm voting.

My mom is always comparing me to other people. "Patricia doesn't do this to her parents! Then why do you? " Or "You need to be more like, let's say Melissa, Melissa! She at least gets out to meet new people! " Yeah, well all the times that you've said "I'm not perfect." Or you yell at me when I say I don't want to do my face, Proactive, and I say I like it the way it is. Even sometimes at night I hear her talking to my grandma, we live with her, and saying mean things about me and everything I do wrong and my grandma tries to help, but it's always my fault something's happened... sometimes when I'm at my dads I think she takes that time to do it.

In English Miss F. asked my form who has Instagram and nearly everyone put their hand up except from me. T. didn't either because she's more into stuff than Pirate101 than social media. So, I asked my parents if I can have Instagram too:
Me: Dad, can I get Instagram? Everyone in my form does
Dad: Oh really? Name five people who have it then.
Me: B., A., A., K., S... Everyone.
Dad: So what job does B.'s mum do?
Me: *Looks at mum for help*
Mum: Arun, you shouldn't be asking these questions about people.
Me: Yeah, and how can I even ask this question to someone?!
Dad: So, is B. the only child at home?
Me: No, she has an older brother.
Dad: Exactly, all these people have sisters and brothers. You are the only child so your parents care about you more.
Me: K.'s the only child too.
Dad: Well, her mum is probably a single mum so she doesn't care about you ask much as we do. If all your worth ethics become green I will consider it (in other words NO)
Me: ...more

I really hate that! I want Call of Duty so bad and mom doesn't let me play it! She's always like "Ooh, you have to be 17 to play it, you're to little to play it! DUH." Good parents go by MATURITY, not age! (Although they should be 17 to turn the goriness on) I want my mom to stop treating my like a baby and treat me like a man! I wish she would just wake up and realize that I am mature enough to play! And yet my parents say I'm old enough to make my bed, but still "too little" to play Call of Duty.

P.S. My dad's been no help at all. He just takes my mom's side for everything, despite his "manliness".

6 They let your little siblings get away with more than you do

I have asked my parents many times if they have a favorite child and they always say no but I know they do.

They gave me SUCH an ugly name. My name means "star" in Italian. I think my name is ugly. My sister has a BEAUTIFUL French name which is Juliet.

My sister is always so lazy. She doesn't turn the light off and she keeps the sink water running. So I turn it off and get mad at her for not turning it off and my parents are like "Take it easy on her!"

It's so annoying because they let her get away with everything and I get in trouble for it.

My brother plays games like Heroes Of Glory and has many times hacked my accounts to write sexual crude stuff. Guess who my dad blames for looking up "dodgy websites".

My brother has broken many glasses around our house, and has even slashed my neck with a glass ornament in front of my parents. Guess who my parents blame for having mental problems.

My brother stole a smartphone that wasn't his and broke it. He tore my mom's iPad jacket cover thing as well and even downloaded this thing on our shared computer that ruined it so badly we had to reboot it and it lost all its memory and data. Guess who's blamed for being "unfit for technology".

I just love the way they judge everything

Not only my brother but my cousin.
The last time, my cousin try to frame me for doing something wrong. I don't have a problem with my brother but I only deal my cousin problems.
He always pinching me for no actual reason and my aunt won't believe me about the pinching thing so he continues to do it.
But finally my cousin got caught of pinching me by my aunt and discipline him in front of me.

But I am really sorry for the other commenter who got hit by his brother as a result of getting injured.Why does he need to fight back or need some self-defense from his brother.
My brother punched me sometimes but his hit was too soft that I am bigger than him so I am tough so he punched me without a bruise (he punched me in the shoulder, chest, or in the gut).
So if you have a big brother you don't need to fear unless you need to make your brother a big regret from your parents.

Oh yes. One time at my grandmas place I was trying to make something old to new (it was a old sleigh) one day I was trying to work on the sleigh when I felt the urge to go swimming. With taou ( a 9 year old, by the way) so my grandma called taou's mom. But taou was out with some friends. So I gone swimming by myself. I have gone out early because I was bored. When my dad picked me up. I've gone into the shop and I saw a garbage looking nail thing on the sleigh. I told my dad but I heard this excuse "oh he's only 4 he's just does not know any better" he did not ruin my sleigh once but two times! The second time he did it I've saw him and I took the hammer away. He cried because he "wanted to help" and I heard my dads excuse again! This time I saw a crap-looking sleigh with dozens of nails.

7 They call it arguing but you call it explaining

One time I went out with my mom to have lunch with some other mothers and their kids. I was sitting there being polite. Barely talking, and when I did, I spoke quietly (in contrast with the loud voices of the other kids). I just sat there and ate for over an hour before I managed to get 20 minutes on my mother's phone. 10 minutes after I started to get a headache. I told my mom and said I just wanted to lie down in the car. I even specifically stated that she could still stay: just give me the car keys so I can lay down to rest.

Apparently that was like telling her that I was picking on kids in school or something, because she turned very nasty then. She started rambling about how I was just trying to go home early (despite the fact I said she could stay) and started to blame the fact that I spent 20 minutes on her phone. Even though I've watched videos on smaller phones for 50 minutes before and did not get a single headache, she insisted it was because of the phone. When I ...more

My mom asked me about someone in my class and I told her about them. I was a little annoyed I had to answer this, so when I answered, I sounded a little annoyed. Then, my mom and dad went on for an hour of how I can never be happy and will never be grateful for anything. The explained being grateful and happy to me like it was a foreign concept. They act like I'm the luckiest person in the world just because I'm an only child, and they get me things, which to them is like spoiling me. Then I ran up to my room and cried for a few minutes, then my dad tells me to bring his phone to him like nothing happened!

Mom: I want you to be vey honest, why did you get a three for effort, classwork and homework completion in Math?

Me: Mom, that's because I just forgot my homework for 2 times in a row recently and I don't know why classwork and effort is 3. Beside, my test score were in the top 5 highest out of the year group so I do studied hard!

Mom: I don't want any excuses! And don't lie to me because every time I saw you in this house, you were sitting on the sofa with your laptop!

Me: But I might be doing research for another subject at that time, mom.

Mom: I'm sick of arguing with you, do you know how hard it is to raise you since you were born? (Mom start to speak for about an hour about how horrible my behavior is and many other things that I now wouldn't be bothered to listen anymore)


My mom got mad at me for making a "disrespectful comment" and so I tried to explain to her what I felt happened, and she ended up screaming at me and telling me I had to stay home from somewhere she signed up for me to go, and that she had already bought stuff to take there, like she's punishing both of us now. I am so pissed right now I have a headache and I've been screaming into pillows for hours now. And the thing is, she doesn't even care. Parents don't understand anything, they only know what they want to know.

8 They turn the littlest things into a huge deal

Once, my dad wanted to pick me up and I thought my mom was in the car with him because I didn't hear her in the house for the whole day. So I was going to the front door and my mom was laying on the couch and said "why didn't you say goodbye before going off?! " And I simply said "well I thought you were not home or in the car with dad... Ok so bye mom" and while on the road my mom called my dad thru the speaker phone and said "why the hell didn't *my name* say goodbye to me?! " My dad just explained everything but my mom still thinks I was lying.
I just don't get why parents make a big deal about small things. I just didn't see her when going out and didn't say "bye" what the hell is the problem?!

Let's say you draw nudity and whether it is in a oh so sexual form or not, it was drawn within highly artistically purposes and which the drawing shows as well. Your parents find out about this, you get a talk (you know which kind) and explains the beauty of your art, yet they are blinded by perversion and therefore can't see the true beauty of your artwork. This has happened between me and my mom. But I continued to draw nudity, even showed to different people and annoyed her with it, and yeah, continued life.

So, I went on a camping trip for the 4th of July, this one day... My dad and I were about to ride on my uncle's boat and when my dad got on, this is what happened...

My Dad: *gives me the "come here" hand-gesture*

Me: *PS: I was still standing on the dock* What?

Dad: Get in!

Me: What?

Dad: GET IN!

Me: *Facepalm*

So, I got on the boat anyway and ignored him for the rest of the ride. The only reason why I said "what" a couple times was because the motor on my uncle's boat was kind of loud

One time I told my parents that I was doing a favor for the teacher and also told them that while I was doing the favor,the girls told on me that I was making an excuse to stare at them. While my parents were hearing this, I thought they would be on my side but NO, instead they just nagging and insulting me and in the process took my phone. Which I felt made absolutely no scenes.

9 They are liars

When my brother decided to study music as a major and a career, my mom was supportive of him. She said, "I'll let you chase your dreams" and that "I'll let my kids decide their future". Thus, I had a conversation about my aspirations, and it went like this:

Me: Mom, I want to be an artist. (I'm in tenth grade by the way)

Mom: No. That'll never happen. You MUST become a dentist. Art will just be a hobby for you.

Me: Why?

Mom: You'll just starve and live as a beggar if you are an artist.

Me: But you let my brother pursue his dream of becoming a musician. Why won't you support my dreams? I don't want to become my dentist. I'm not interested in it. I love art, so I want to make it my career. Wouldn't it be great if my career would be something that I love to do? I have no interest in being a dentist.

Mom: Look. Dentists have high salaries. That's why you MUST become a dentist. Since you're my child, you have to listen to me. You won't have a ...more

I was just explaining to my mom how I want to start coding and creating games, making videos and editing them, trying to invent things, designing and acting (I'm 7th grade). My mom says that if you do that in your life, you will never use your brain and therefore you will have a dull life. She also apparently says that you will live the rest of your life poor and nobody will like you. Then I said that it wont interfere with my school. Then, she says that after you retire your job you can start doing those things. My dad totally agrees with me and thinks that it is a great idea and he will sign me up for plays right away. My mom says I can do it after I retire. She says I need to be an engineer and work for somebody but I just want to do any type of art where I can use my imagination and nobody can tell me what to do. I will do it though.

My mom has a secret boyfriend and its obvious. She sings love songs all day, texts all the time, and goes out without a explanation. I read her texts without her knowing at the store once, and she had a boyfriend. I talked to her about it, and she said "its just a friend" even though they were sexting each other. I told her I know she likes him, and she yelled at me that I destroyed her social life, she has no social life, and she still denies it. Once a MILLIONAIRE liked her, and she chased him off without my bro knowing! She told my bro the same things! I never believe her up to this day. She lies every day.

I agree with you guys. They keep lying to me about stuff when it comes to me. Like that one time, I finally had time to go to the mall and hang out with my friends after our Christmas party. My friend even talked to my mom just to let me go to the mall.
Me: Ma, can I go to the mall and hang out with my friends?
Mom: Depends.
Me(not talking to mom): She said it depends.
Friend: Let me talk to her.
(After a few seconds)
Friend (not talking to my mom): She said you have a place to go to later, so she said you can't.
Me: Really ma?! Where?
Mom: To our house back at our province.
Me: Yay!
Turns out, my mom lied to me just so I couldn't hang out with my friends. I hate it when she lies like that.

10 They always think they are right

Look, I know my parents might think they know everything because they're adults, but COME ON! Just the other day I was talking to my mom and my dad comes storming into the kitchen yelling at me like "Rachel! You're supposed to be taking the garbage out! Not sitting around the house! " And then I realized it WAS garbage day, so I just went to go put the garbage near the road. But that's when the problem began: I asked him what garbage had to go out, and he answered saying the blue bin, the compost, and the garbage. I wasn't sure if that was correct, because I looked outside and everyone had their black bins and garbage out, so I looked it up on my tablet and told my dad it actually was the black bin and the garbage that had to go out. And guess what he did? He threw a hussy fit right there on the spot! He kept on telling me "No! You're wrong! It's the blue bin instead of the black bin, and blah, blah, blah." So of course my response was to correct him, and he continued with his ...more

Ok I am thankful of my parents but whenever I disagree with them they don't respect my opinion. Today when I was eating dinner I told them uniforms should be banned. This is how it went.
My point:No one I know gets bullied by the clothes they wear and I asked my non uniform friends if anyone does and they all said no, they cost a lot of money for parents

My mom's point:Everyone wants the latest clothes even though parents can't afford them

Me: (sits up straight and tries to start the discussion)

Family all laugh at me because I look so serious and all that crap. Even when I tried to make a point they just laughed at me. I felt like punching a wall. So my parents flat out disagree with everything I say and my brother who I absolutely hate continues to laugh and annoy me. I want to throw him off a cliff. Just because he's my family it doesn't mean I have to like him. I try to convince my parents that uniform is a waste of money but my mom gets angry at me for ...more

In my family, I must listen to whatever my parents say, even if I disagree. Why? Because it's apparently "respectful" and they "worked hard to raise me". Yes, they probably did work hard to raise me, but why am I not allowed to make my own opinions or choices for simple things like the way I hold a bowl?! They say that I'm in debt to them because they raised me. That doesn't mean that they should control everything I do. If I do make a remark or opinion on something like whether passion is more important or a good job, they often make snide remarks about my opinion. If I dare to point out that they're rejecting my idea completely, they just say that I'm too sensitive. It's quite obvious that they are disagreeing with me and trying to passive-aggressively insult me. Well, it's either that or they flat say they disagree and turn into a full-on debate. And then they start insulting my Chinese and how it's terrible and they can't understand it. If I start pointing that out, then they'll ...more

I love my mom and everything, I even appreciate when she grounds me and I deserve it. I also appreciate all the life lessons she give to me, but this really gets me angry lot of times. She NEVER recognizes things she say or do to me that are just not right at all, she also NEVER understands certain situations where I think I deserve to be understood (also, considering I'm a teen). You can't argue with her or say a word or you are being "disrespectful" and you have to obey because she is your mother...I always have to be the one that asks for forgiveness, even if it's all her fault or she is overreacting!

The Newcomers

? When they put themselves down
? When they get mad at you for getting annoyed about them getting mad

This happens too much, I get annoyed of my mom freaking out of her phone, and she always says, shut up! And gets so mad, or says you don't have to deal with this

The Contenders
11 They want you to be honest, but when you are they get angry

My dad recently joined church these past 2-3 years and changed. He turned from getting angry and shouting all the time to being angry and then having sudden moments of smiling and niceness afterwards (which is harder to deal with and more confusing! ). This month, he started to have us have family meetings every Saturdays to talk about rules (don't like it but unwillingly agreed), but before that we must listen to him pray before we review our household rules. I'm 17 and I've been raised an atheist (besides going to church for Christmas and such days) my whole life. We are an Asian family so we're not allowed to talk back to parents no matter how wrong they seem to be. So, for Saturday meetings, he said we can speak freely---whatever we want. I spoke honestly and told him I wasn't comfortable with him speaking about religion because I wasn't raised like that here and at school either and then had a fit. I literally had a panic attack, but afterwards both of my parents got angry and ...more

So true! My mom wants me to tell her about my school day and so I used to do that everyday last year. So last year there was this one really funny guy who did at least one funny thing everyday along with his friends, so when I come home I would usually tell her about what funny thing he did today. After like the third day she got mad saying I'm thinking to much about boys and not enough about work. I mean how is that eve possible, I have awesome grads, and me and that guy were just friends, it's not like I liked him or anything!

YESS! My mom says I never tell her anything... Huh, I wonder why? Maybe it's b/c every time I do tell you anything you either interrupt me by saying "why are you telling me this? ", "And your point is.. ? ", or right in the middle of me talking and I say something she doesn't like, she'll interrupt me immediately and start lecturing and yelling at me. then say I started the argument. hey, I was just talking you're the one that won't the time of day to finally let your daughter say something after you say you want her to. REALLY?!

My dad does this a lot. He never lets me express my emotions. He thinks I'M the toxic one and that I'm a huge grump. In reality, I'm really just going through puberty and can't control how I feel (that was hard to day, but I had to be honest). Of course my dad couldn't care less about that fact, so he yells at me over every little thing I say, even if I'm totally honest.

12 They never understand

Man, this is pretty true. My parents are so strict with things. When I make a little mistake, they get so mad at me! Also, I get very little freedom. Here's an example. One time when I got a candy cane from my teacher, my parents just let me eat a tiny slice of it and then they promise me that I can have some more the next day, yet when the next day comes, they throw it out! When I find out they always say "Oh sorry, I didn't know. I tried talking it out with my parents, and they still act this way! They also never leave me alone. They need to understand that I'm an introvert and don't like being very social. They tell me to be social to others even after I tell them that. They also tell everyone that they possibly know everything that they can possibly find out about me. I find it really annoying. I don't feel safe around them, and I think I'm getting depression from them. I feel abused, let down, that the future is hopeless. And they don't even care! If you'd like to reach out for ...more

I feel misunderstood in my family. My parents and other relatives hug and kiss me, but I'm haphephobic. I told my parents them this and that I think it's uncomfortable, but they blow it off. I also have to do what they tell me to do. I just feel so submissive when I do that. This is a reason why I have trouble standing up for myself in front of my peers who are mean and even my parents. I was also really scared coming out as atheist to them, because I thought they'd be super mad. I'm also not allowed to have social media and all of my friends have it. I feel like they like me less ever since I told them that I was an atheist.
Update: I can have social media, but only Snapchat.

Even My classmates that aren't my best friends understand me better than they do. My parents don't understand how I feel when they force me to do a test with little kids. They think that I shouldn't complain because it's "to make me smarter". Seriously, don't only care about education, care about people's feelings too. My classmates, on the other hand, understand how it feels like to be surrounded in little kids and forced to do kiddy things. They know how embarrassing it is

I close my bedroom door a lot because I love being alone (unless I'm in public) and hate hearing annoying sounds outside of my room when I'm doing something, but my parents seem to not understand that and think I do that for no good reason. They would try to make me feel guilty for doing that, and my dad even sometimes make fun of me because of that.
My mom also sometimes tries to make me be on a school sports team, even though I have no interest in doing so.

13 They think they hold your future

My dad wants me to be something VERY academic, and my sisters to have something more creative. But the truth is, I have an amazing voice! I want to be a singer, but I have to follow in my father's footsteps... he thinks it's my sister's thing, and she's in choir.

Kinda not really. I want to be a veterinarian, but my mom is throwing finance into the idea.
"Finance is really good paying job," My mom said.
"Nah, I want to be a vet! " I say.
A Few Weeks Later
"So, for your high school, we don't know if you want to be in a science related high school or a finance high school," She annoyingly says again.
"Mom, I'm going to be a veterinarian. I'm going to science high school -_-."
"Hmm, we never know ( secretly knows that is going to force daughter to be in finance)."
She also tried to get me into music. She FORCED me to play the piano and the violin, two of my favorite sounding instruments. But I quit it. I don't want to play an instrument. My mom is forcing me to start up piano once again, but that's not the life I chose. Sure, piano is a beautiful instrument to listen to, but music IS NOT for me. I watch and draw anime, but she's barely supportive of me.
If it was up to her, I would be an A student who played the piano and ...more

Well what happened today, I had an assignment to do and you all know assignments have a set date.
I was supposed to be with my girlfriend but at last minute I was told she can't come. I asked why, the response was you havn't done your homework, my response assignment before I repeat myself let me explain what an assignment is an assignment is a set of work to do with a subject due on a particular date. But still no you haven't done your homework, so I told dad to stop the car and I just walked home because I have never been so angry in my life (I punched the car door) and no I'm not just a spoiled brat who wants everything I very rarely ask for anything.

My parents are Christians and they stand against secular music. I create beats and I love to sing too, both gospel music and secular music. My parents; especially my Dad, would forbid me to go audition for a secular show to be in a secular music industry so I can finally have a life to live and get out my parents home. I made too many excuses why I didn't do this sooner but this time this year, I'm gonna go after my dreams and I don't care what they have to say about anything. It's my life, and I'm gonna live it.

14 They don't value your choices

So I live in California, and I'm a sophomore in high school. My dad wants to move our family to Tennessee. While Tennessee is a nice place and all, it doesn't feel like home, I'm a California person, I want the beach, and the warm temperatures. Plus, my whole family and friends live in California. The reason why my dad wants to move us over there is only because he is tired of being a teacher and wants to create a record pressing plant. Not to mention, all the places he wants to move to are at least a half hour away from the the city. He isn't even considering me and my brother, or my mom. Its all for himself. I wish that there was some other place that would fit both his needs and my own, because if we do move, we are gonna be lonely, I'm gonna have to start off fresh in a new high school where I don't know a single person. Perhaps, I will adjust to it, and will eventually like it more than California, but its gonna be tough no doubt, our first year there.


My parents are so annoying.

I got grounded for -- as my parents put it-- "ignoring the rules and trying to fit in" ("posting" to Instagram. Apparently I can only have it if I don't post anything. The "post" I made wasn't even a post -- it was a comment. -- And I didn't even make the comment! My neighbor did on my account! -- Plus, I had a private account so if I did a REAL post, nobody would see it except my friends anyway.

Meanwhile, my dad posts every picture he HAS of me to Facebook with embarrassing captions, and despite the pervs who have --multiple times-- seen my photos, my dad still thinks his Facebook is safer than my instagram.

I'm a middle schooler and my dad put me in band, I tried it, and I hate it. I don't want to play in band but my dad says it's "good for me." I get that and all, but band isn't my thing. But no matter what I say, my opinion dosen't seem to matter.

Our house was for sale, and I didn't want to move. My parents asked me if I still wanted to move. I said no (I was madly in love with someone in my school). They told me my descision mattered 2 months before and now they tell me it doesn't matter how you feel. The parents make the rules around here.

15 They're overprotective

Exactly! This should be number 1! I cannot even say 1 mild bad word! I am allowed to use BABY WORDS! I'm 15! Not 2! I may be childish, but I am academically smart and sometimes mature! So annoying!

Itskenny, I know it sounds racist, but I have no control over my Asian parents' beliefs. Most are friendly and won't harm us, but they would still make me avoid them due to the stereotype of black people and crime thing. My mom will obviously make me avoid:

-groups of black teen boys
-old homeless black men

There is one exception to this: I have a black friend who used go the same high school as me and sometimes we see each other in public. I'm allowed to say hi to him.

This is my parents. They're Asian. They literally take overprotection up to eleven. Some of the things they enforce include:

-no school trips
-no cooking because you will bet burned
-no going somewhere alone
-avoid every black person or dog in the streets
-1 bite of dessert=you automatically get diabetes

You know Marlin? Nemo's dad? How he didn't want "anything to happen" to Nemo? Yeah, that kind of suffocating, overprotective love that is just too much for our own good. Oh, and let's not forget the famous quote that overprotective parents always use, "It's not that I don't trust YOU, I just don't trust the people AROUND you! "

16 They demand control over your electronics

My parents took my phone because they told my grades didn't meet their expectations and I got 94 percent and I had the highest marks in my class.
And after 2 months they shaved my head completely without any reason and they said my hair is matted and it was not matted at all. Then I argued with them and they said they are older than me and know what to do . I'm 14 and I think I can make the decision to shave my head or not . But no they don't let me play games on my computer which I bought myself from my hard earned money. They also compare me with my friend but my father got furious when I said that my friend's father's income is twice than his.

When we get/receive our electronics, it implies that they belong to us, and we control them, but even for the slightest things, they instantly become theirs.
"Mom, I got a 86 on the final"
"That's so bad! Give me your phone, NOW! "
"But the class average was a 79! And I had the highest grade in the class. Oh, my stomach hurts"
"Its probably because of that stupid phone. Give it to me before I take it and chuck it out the window! "
Jesus Christ parents are the biggest setbacks to anything you try to accomplish ever

When I was like 10, My friend told me about discord so I got an account and we started messaging each other. He invited me to a server with a couple other of my friends. Then my mom asked for my account info so I told her. Then I found out she was looking at all of my messages. My friends found out, and they banned me from the server because my mom was also looking at their messages.

They think our electronics are theirs just because they bought it and are paying the bills for it. When they give us something, it means that it's OUR stuff and WE have control over them! They bought it for us after all.

17 They take your things regardless of your permission

Every time my family goes out to dinner, my dad expects me to give him a bite of my food. Sometimes my mom does that and even my sisters. I don't ask them for THEIR food because I don't want it, but why does everyone want bites of my food. One time at an amusement park, my mom took SEVERAL bites of my ice cream and I was mad. Guess what she did, she grounded my because I gave her "a dirty look". I feel like I'm not even allowed to show the slightest BIT of frustration if my parents have wronged me. One time there was this guy in the house and my mom needed money. I had to give her 60 dollars to pay the guy when she could've used her own money. She said she'll pay me back, but she has yet to do it. I just want to make a rule in my family where we only use and are responsible for our own stuff and to not interfere with other people's property.

So I guess my mom though that I was asleep one night and she walks into my room (I don't say anything to her or let her know that I'm awake as I wanted to see what she was doing in my room at 1:30am. I watch her walk around with a flashlight and open my desk drawer and take out my wallet take something out and then put it back, close the drawer and leave. I checked my wallet in the morning and there was more that $100 missing! I asked her if she knew if my sister took it (obviously knowing the answer already) and she said that she wasn't sure and that she would ask my sister later. I then check my wallet again the next day and there was $50 dollars more that there were the previous day. So she had put some money back in my wallet. I ask her about it the next day and she admits that she took the money and that she has been doing it for years. I am now 19 and I have since then moved out of my parents house and have my own now. My mom never did pay me back.

My room gets dead hot in the summer because the sun is in the window 12 hours a day. I came up with a technique that can cool it off somewhat. I just keep my fan on 1 and revolve. I get a breeze. When she does child care she takes my fan and puts it in her much cooler room to keep the single napping child cool she's got her own fan. In the middle of the night I have absolutely NO sheets or blankets on with my fan on 3 and I'm laying in my own sweat. So I go in my mom's room and sleep in there. She gets mad and asks me why when I tell her, she just makes up excuses.

My mom always take my allowance away from me. She says that she'll pay me back by the time she gets a salary. The result is I wanted to get my money back but she'll never give me all her loans to me.

Lucky for her I did not ask her about her loans from me years ago. If I would estimate how much did she loan to me for my entire life, it would reach more than a hundred dollars.

18 They tell you to be quiet after asking you a question

This is a big part of why I am such a quiet person. All growing up, whenever I would try to say something, my parents and even other people would tell me to be quiet or ignore me, so I eventually just stopped talking. Then as I got older, everyone would get annoyed or call me a name because I didn't participate in their conversations, usually because I don't have anything to say about whatever it is they are talking about, or because I don't care about the topic.

"So how was school today? " "Well I "learned about the human- "Oh that's great and now let me quiz you on it! " How many bones are in the body? "Well counting the femur there are-"You obviously didn't pay attention! Are you getting good grades? " I got an 86 out of 100 on the test last week but I was sick for half of- oh ok but why didn't you get 100? Well I missed 3 classes last- sure sure ok well I Guess your phone and iPad and all your other electronics are mine until you get your- but mom I- DON'T INTERUPPTED ME YOU G LADY!

Stepmom: Are you having a attitude with me?
me: No I am just talking to you
Stepmom: Why do you think you have to have the last word?
me: I was just responding to your question
Stepmom: Why are you back talking to me?
me: I was answering your question!
Stepmom: Excuse me, do you want to go to bed early?
me: No I was only answering your...
Stepmom: Then shut up!

To the person who got scratched by their dumb cousin, I feel bad for you! Getting scratched with the tip of a correction tape hurts a lot! Your mom doesn't know how it hurts and wants you to be the bigger person and bear the pain.

19 They get mad when you prove them wrong

My mom just sits in one corner and listens to stupid music and when I tell her she's the one not doing her mother-job she just says I play my computer games too much. Oh really? I don't. And sometimes when she sees something interesting on her phone she smiles and I try to be nice to her (It's hard to see her smiling when you're unhappy) but she just says "Oh I'm not smiling. Probably I did it by accident." And then I said, "Can you please use your earplugs to listen to music, Mom. I don't like your music." Then she gets angry and she says "Then you cover your ears! " I mean like what, whose Mom is as stupid as mine?!

She always try to get on her smartphone to chat with friends or look up stuff but then I sit in a corner always doing my homework. Sometimes I get really fed up. What's more when I complete my homework I get no game-time. Or free-time.

I'm really angry and it's luck I can post this here without my mom seeing I'm using the computer.

On saturday, I'm allowed to play games. This time she let me play as much as I wanted. I asked her if she was going to get mad at me in the middle and she PROMISED me that she won't go nuts no matter how long I play. She gets back from her parent's house and finds out that I played for 8 hours. She gets mad at me and grounds me. I tell her that she let me play as much as I WANTED, yes as much as I wanted. I even did all my homework before I started. And she grounds me and wont stop talking about it. It was only 9 pm and she was shouting and she woke up my dad. My dad was sick.

Me: Mom if you were born 5 years ago how old would you be?

Mom: *says her age -5*

Me: No, Mom. if you were BORN 5 years ago how old would you be?

mom: *Gives the same answer*

Me: If you came in this world. If you've been living here for 5 years, how old would you be?

Mom: *Same answer! *

Me: The answer is 5!


Me: if (my brother's name) was born five years ago and he was five years old today, how old would he be?

Mom: a negative number for his age.

Me: *Tries to change topics and shares what other answers people got* So I thought it was (My age -5) but I figured out it was 5

Mom: So what does it say about you?

Me: This isn't a quiz! it's a riddle!

mom: NO IT'S NOT! That's it! You're grounded!

I told my aunt that she isn't doing her routine with the dog we already shared among our family members. I was very calm and spoke all true things. She was supposed to take the dog to the potty in the afternoon and if he peed inside, she would clean it and disclipline him. She didn't, instead, she decided to do her crafts and didn't care at all when I said that the dog peed. I ended up cleaning it as always and I told her that she should have cleaned it. She said that she is 'busy'. Well, that isn't a smart reason because I can be 'busy' playing games!
She grounded me for so long even though I didn't show any anger or anything. I simply said, "Auntie, can you please clean that puddle -Bunny had an accident."
She said, "Come on,you're grown up and you can do it".
I later told her, "I'm sorry but I've been doing this for 2 months and I think I have school work and my chores to get done. Can you please do our routine? "
She said: No one cares about a routine, I'm 'obviously' ...more

20 They say "I’m the parent, you are the child"

I was doing my homework one day and my mom literally kept talking and I told her to stop, and after telling her several times, she still didn't stop. I yelled at her to shush and she said I was being "disrespectful". I said that it was her who was bothering me in the first place, and my dad said, "So what? She's the parent, she can do what she wants." Yeah, you tell me to "focus on my homework" but how do I do that with you talking? It's unfair!

I wished I could say to my parents "If I were the parent and you two were my children. What would I do to you? " But I'm afraid to tell that or my parents will slap me a lot for saying that.

Parents always use this excuse when they lose an argument with their child so that they can avoid admitting they're wrong.

My dad sometimes walks in on me while I'm taking a bath. But when I do it to him(accidentally), he always has a talk with me. Guess what he says when I tell him he does the exact same thing

21 They see only negative things inside you

I do a ton of chores, help out my siblings, then mess up ONE TINY THING then I get really in trouble. They didn't appreciate anything good I did!

My mom almost never points out anything good about anyone, if I'm doing something like writing an email to my teacher or something while she's talking to me she'll be all like, "Why aren't you listening to me? I bet you're just getting bored of me. You don't even like me, do you?" And I'll be like, "No, I'm listening!" And she'll just IGNORE that and be all like "God knows best." Like what?

But my mom is pretty great, this is just me ranting, and I know many other people have much worse mothers.

My mom never bothers to talk to me about things that I like, and I like a lot of different things. She always chooses topics that I don't really like and then he gets mad. "you don't like anything" or "you're such a negative person" and I'm just like "oh please just stop".

Then later I get the conversation like "People won't like you, you'll never get a job, you'll have no boyfriend or friends". Says the single woman with 0 friends and a disgusting personality.

My mum thinks I only complain, so when I actually want to say something that has to do with negativity, she complains about how I complain so much. So apparently she thinks I need help cause I talk to myself so much, when she took away all my internet friends, and thinks it's my fault I have no friends and get bullied. Does she even know how lonely I am? Sure I sneak on the internet every once and awhile, but I can't actually talk with anyone anymore. I just want a friend now...just one real friend :(

22 They restrict your freedom

I know absolutely no one with less freedom than me. They have to know the password to every account I ever make. I'm rarely allowed to be anywhere without my parents there except for school. I've been homeschooled up until now. I'm not allowed to have friends my parents don't about, and certainly not a girlfriend. At night, I'm not allowed to close the door so that I can't masturbate (I go in the bathroom). I'm not allowed to use the bathroom at night either. If I leave my room at night even once, they'll ground me for a week or so. I'm not allowed to use earphones. I'm not allowed to have unsupervised access to the internet.

In terms of religion, this happened to me. I was forced to join the corrupt Roman Catholic Church instead of serving my Lord God and Lord Jesus Christ and following their Word. I was abused for saying no, and it was difficult growing up. Despite this, God looked at me with pity and my friend and mentor, made a lot of great websites, such as Signs of the End Times. I am 22 now and this happened about 10-11 years ago. But other than that, my parents gave (and still give) me TONS of freedom. I've spent days alone at home since I was 11 playing Demons' Souls and they didn't even ask anything, except maybe to check on me every now and then.

It's so annoying. They don't let me get any social media, they let me get a Wattpad account but I think the forgot about it. Last year my friends wanted to go to another neighborhood for Halloween and my mom didn't let me go because she wouldn't be there to watch which pretty much ruined Halloween for me. She hardly lets me out of her sight. Like I'll be upstairs in my room minding my own business and she just yells at me to come downstairs cause she wants to see me. I'm not allowed to say words that are considered bad around her. Like one I said "it sucks" she threatened to put "soup" in my mouth if I said it again and she got all worked up when I said "".

I'm 12 she goes through my phone history always asks what I'm on and she says I can't go to a friends house unless she knows the parents. She won't even let me text to my friends (even though I don't have any... ) and I'm gonna have to delete my history after being on here. She says I can't go outside without asking because someone might "take me away." I'm super smart and can run fast I have watched so many I survived episodes so if anything like that does happen I'll be prepared. Two years ago I had to ask her before eating something. I mean seriously! I'm in perfect health!

23 They deny half of what you say even when they know it's true

Ya, pretty much. They think they always know what's best, but they don't. I'm missing school tomorrow and I don't want to do my homework. My mom thinks I need to for some nonexistent reason. I can turn it in next week without having it marked late. She won't listen though. Whenever I ask her why, she says, "because I'll ground you if you don't." And also, "so you don't lose points" hello?!?! I already told her I wouldn't lose points. Then she told me it wasn't her fault if I didn't care about my grades. It wasn't my fault that she was too busy planning out her next argument that she didn't listen, like she always is. She needs to actually listen to other people. It's really rude!

So true. They avoid the blame for everything just because they're the adults. This is a minor example but they have done it in more serious situations too: I was at the mall and my dad got me pretzel bites. Since we had just watched a movie I asked if I could bring the pretzel bites in the van. "No," my mom said, "I still need to talk to your dad." Something like that. Then when I finished my pretzel bites I asked "Can I get some more, to-go? " And my mom said, "You should have asked to go to the van if you wanted them in the van." Excuse me!?!?!? I DID ask for that, but nooo, you were so busy talking that you didn't listen to me! Then she blamed ME for not being able to eat pretzel bites in the van. Apparently it's my fault that she talks too much. No, she's just trying to avoid the blame for it, just because she's the adult and parent and I'm just a stupid minor. Grrr...

Yeah my dad does that every time such as:
Dad: tomorrow moring your going to work.
Me: no...I have school
Dad: yes you are
This goes on back and forth for like two or three times then I say: dude I have scool tommorow.
And he goes on with: we can keep doing this if you want to keep being childish. I said thursday morning.
Finally I decide to ignore him and it hurts my feelings that when ever I try to sate my point that is very logical my parents say I'm wrong, that's not true, etc. I even explained this to my counsler about this and they said he was in dienal. what, I cried because I'm painted as the villain and my dad just wont execpy my thoughts or my corrections.

I am the one who described my family and my pain on no. 3 and various other. This also happens with me when I say negative facts about my brother. Imagine how I'm living.

24 They act like they a 2-year-old when they are angry

I have gotten told that I was acting like a 2-year-old because I was ranting. I get that wasn't the subject here, but I wanted to point it out anyway.

Okay one time my little sister pooped all over her big white teddy bear and my dad yelled at her like a two year old and I could have said something to him but I kept my mouth shut because I didn't want him to get mad at me. By the way typing this was so funny!

YES that is my dad, he acts so stupid when he's mad, and that's like all the time.

Once when I was a kid my dad smashed a chair when he got angry at me.

25 They say "who are you texting?"

So so true and annoying. Whenever I'm seen on my phone or any electronic, which I'm barely on, they will snatch it from me and say I'm on it too much. I'm always spending time with them, so when I get alone time, I try to text my friends which is not that much. I purposefully go to my room for a few moments just to text or go on the Internet, but they either barge in and see me and take it away. They say I'm on electronics too much, but they just happen to catch me on them at those rare moments. It's really starting to get to me.

Umm... Me and my imaginary friends just made a group chat and we're just talking about how horrible 2020 was and that 2019 was better. Kokichi keeps posting pics of him annoying Keebo while Keebo keeps saying that's robophobic. Salad Fingers eventually got sick of this and went offline for a while. The Mane 6 were pissed off and went offline to, so it was just me, Kokichi, and Keebo. I was going to say bye until you showed up.
Mom: You have no friends.

I honestly think that they enjoy seeing all the texts in our phones. I always chat with my friends in our group chat. Mom and dad keeps looking at my phone so they could know who I'm chatting with. When my mom had to go to school to get my report card, she asked my class adviser if I have a boyfriend. I knew that from our class adviser before the last day of school. I mean seriously? Just because I'm texting or chatting with someone, doesn't mean that I have a boyfriend! Really, gosh!

This happens all the time. I was texting a guy friend of mine, keep in mind he's just my best friend I don't think of him in any other way or ever will, and I told her who I was texting. She snatched my phone and told me that I shouldn't be chasing guys. I told her that I don't like himand we were just talking about music. She starts reading my conversation and says I'm boy crazy just for having a long conversation wtih him. Then she called be desperate and now she thinks I sent nudes cause it was just a boy. No trust in me smh.
