Ten Most Annoying Things About Parents

The Top Ten

1 They always think you're lying even when you're telling the truth

This happens to me alot, so annoying!

Me too, even if I'm telling the truth they always say "your getting the wrong message" I mean danmed I'm right!

Dude! Parents are idiots sometimes. When they get too mad at something, they don't care! If I were you, I'd be talking to them about why they don't give you a chance to tell them the truth! - ItsMehBro

This happened to me today I was writing stories in my notebook when I went to the living room and my brother was using my tablet without permission. So I went and just snatched it from him. So he almost got on my back he was trying to get it from my hands. I holded it tightly so he won't get it. I told my mom about it and she told my brother to give it back to me cause it is mine. But my brother wants to still use it so my mom told me the stupidest thing to let him use it. I got his damn tablet it was already gonna be dead so I slammed the tablet on my bedroom floor like an idiot. My brother acts like if he never used a electronic device before. I went to the room my brother was using my tablet at and I tried to snatch it from him but he was holding on it so tight I couldn't grab it. He did the stupidest thing he kicked me all over my body. I thought he was gonna bite me numerous times. I told my mom right away but she said go tell your dad. My foolish mother is lazy and does'nt want ...more

I am so sorry for you does this always happen to you if it does well I hope some day it will change.

They're all annoying but this one is so, so true. When I was 9 (I'm 15 now), I started getting stomachaches and pain in my abdominal area, she'd say I was making it all up so I could skip school. I have had straight A's ever since I can remember, why would I want to skip school? So yeah, she didn't believe me, I started getting diarrhea, she thought I was making it all up. Weeks passed and I was getting worse. I started bleeding when I went to the bathroom, but she STILL thought I was lying. The pain was excruciating and it made me want to scream and rip off my intestines out or something. She didn't believe me until my grandma convinced her to take me to a hospital, but the doctors said it was a bacteria and I just needed medicine and rest, but I got worse. After all the time, my mom FINALLY got worried and took me to another hospital because I was getting worse, going to the bathroom 5-7 times a day and I was passing blood. I was dehydrated and losing weigth (I've always been tall, ...more

2 When having an argument or just talking, they say you're getting an attitude when it's really just you trying to be neutral about it.

Seriously! This has been happening to me since forever! They always say I'm getting an attitude, but it isn't true. I'm just trying to keep my emotions under control.

So I'm 13 and I was at volleyball practice (my mom is my coach) and we were doing this drill for ball control where 3 people stand in front of the net with their backs to the net and there is a line in front of the outside hitter position the first person at the net passes the ball to you and you pass once to yourself and then to the next person at the net and so on and then you pass/set the ball to yourself all the way around the other side of the net and back to the line so anyways I was in the line and it was my turn so the first person passes me the ball and then the next person and finally I get to the 3rd person at the net and I kinda bump set it you know like. It was a pass but it would've been a good set and the girl at the net spikes it back to me and of course it goes over my head (always swing down! ) and I miss the ball but you aren't supposed to hit/spike the ball in this drill so I would've been the first person to make it all the way around and this girl (we'll call her ...more

My mom always thinks I'm having an additude when I'm just trying to be real...

3 Because I Said So

I also hate everything eles on this list especially:

6) Turning nothing into something
8) They always think you're lying even when you're telling the truth
9) Their singing
10) They die
11) They think that they hold your future
13) Making your bed
20) Very talkative and gives you lots of commands even if you can't do it
22) They choose what is the best for you but actually its the worst
25) They choose your name

- Trivium

Almost everything in this list I hate I love my parents singing I ESPECIALLY LOVE MY NAME and I hate making my own bed so I let them make it

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.

They don't understand me. they even don't like noticing me on very important cases like ;Mum I'm hurt on my hand or ;Mum, Dad please buy a new laptop

This is the worst thing that my mom said to me it was so annoying

4 They turn the littlest things into a huge deal.

My parents are huge idiots. They turn the smallest problems you can ever imagine to problems that are the size of the universe.

My Mum wanted to talk to me and I didn't feel like talking to her at all and she hit me very hard for no reason. She's abusive!

And if you defend yourself they get louder

I forgot a pair of cleats for a race, and my dad YELLED at me over it. OVER A PAIR OF SHOES.


"Dad, I forgot them. And plus, we were running on concrete, and it would've ruined the spikes."

Use those spikes on your cleats and kick your dad in the nuts with the spiky cleats on. - TeamRocket747

5 They always want you to be honest but when you are they get angry

Coming home after she made me come shopping with her:

Mom: "What's wrong? "
Me: "Nothing"
Mom: "Something is wrong. Tell me! "
Me: "I don't want to say"
Mom: "I want to know! "
Me: "Well, I heard you gossip about me while I was in the dressing room. You told the cashier that I'm a really grumpy kid."
Mom: "Look at you! You ARE grumpy! Don't get mad at me! "

She might as well have said, "I'm the perfect parent and you're just the stupid teenager."

When I have a mom like that I will gossip about the bad things that she do in the social media I mean that the meanest mom I heard she said "perfect parent" nobody's perfect what she is the parent 0% sin an 100% good - lovestarlist

So true. Although tact helps a little bit, it won't help if the parents don't expect you to actually be right about something that pertains to the "real world." It comes across as being a smart-ass even if you're not. And if you aren't saying like a smart-ass, you're guaranteed to sound even MORE like a smart-ass.

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

6 They are big 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 ...more

I feel so sorry for you dude. Don't let your mom get in the way of your dreams. Ignore her. - Pegasister12

Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus. Need I go on?

=( My dad told me the boogyman would eat me when I went to sleep if I was a bad boy I was scared from about 4 - 6 years old

My friend had a stepmom who was a HUGE LIAR! One time she wanted to stuff her bra with a little tissue for the school dance. But her stepmom said that "you shouldn't stuff your bra. Your crush will be more impressed with your real boobs instead of your fake ones" and then my friend, whose name is Camille, saw her stepmom stuffing her bra with padding to impress her new boyfriend. HYPOCRITICAL. Camille also told me that "sex is wrong" and "you shouldn't have it, it's a big sin". But then, Camille came home from school one day to find her stepmom having some hot sex with her boyfriend (Her stepmom was actually married! ). Camille was just standing speechless by the door and even saw her Stepmom's boyfriend have an orgasm and pull down her bra and suck at her nipples. And then, her stepmom looked at her and Camille said, "I thought you said sex is wrong". Her stepmom just started french kissing her boyfriend and rubbing him in front of her while saying, "Making love is different from ...more

Intentionally or not, it is no surprise for them to -try- and act like they know stuff about something they know absolutely nothing about.

7 They never understand

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. - Jasmine21064

So true I've had issues with so many people during school and they defend those people without understanding what I have to say. - codgtamk34

My parents are Asian. They think that my ENTIRE LIFE revolves around academics. They force me to study 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, and anything that that's not academic-related is considered a "huge waste of my time". It's good to study, but there is a thing called too much studying. Too much studying can make you worry a lot about failing/grades, which leads to stress, and too much stress is not good for your health or well-being!

Nobody understands me except for my girlfriend and a small fraction of my friends but my parents think they understand me when they don't.

8 They call it arguing but you call it explaining

My sister started an argument and so I argued back and my mom told both of us to shut up and I said I shouldn't get the same punishment as my sister because she was the one who started it when she said not to say anything else I said fine but I was just saying that since my sister started it... You're not going to (place)! I didn't even want to go so I said I didn't even want to go anyways and she said not to say anything about else I said fine but I'm just saying you should choose something else because I didn't want to go to... You're getting a spanking!

I hate this so much. Like my mom accuses me of doing something I didn't do, and then when I try to explain to her that I didn't do it, and says stop arguing. Ugh. So annoying.

Today my sister was making soup and forgot about it but I saw the pot was boiling and I said "you forgot about your soup" so she walked over and I walked away. After a few minutes I noticed that the soup was still sitting in a pot on the stove (the stove was off) so I said "why aren't you eating your soup? " And she said "I didn't know what to do". Really? How can she not know how to put soup into a bowl, grab a spoon, and eat the soup! I said "How can you possibly not know how to eat soup" and when I said that my mom yelled

"GIRLS STOP FIGHTING I'm SO SICK OF HEARING YOU TWO ARGUING ALL THE TIME, BOTH OF YOU JUST BE QUIET! I'm DONE WITH THIS CRAP! " Are you freakimg kidding me were weren't fighting, we weren't even mad at each other I was just asking her a question. I didn't say that to her though because last time I did she made ME apologize to my little sister for 'yelling' I even asked my sister if she really needed an ...more

Oh my God, this happens to me every time. I'll be calmly talking with my sister, telling her why she's wrong in a very civil manner, and then my mom will say GIRLS, STOP ARGUING. YOU'RE BETTER THAN THAT AND SMARTER THAN THAT AND I'M TIRED OF HEARING YOU SQUABBLE. Like, we weren't even angry at each other. And my mom is literally a lawyer! A prosecuting attorney! SHE ARGUES FOR A LIVING! How hypocritical is that?

9 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

They just always think they are right. I mean I love and respect my parents, but however, when I present a alternative idea that contradicts their idea they usually say "No, I know what I am doing" and they will get mad when I just say "Alright" and continue doing whatever I was doing.

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

10 They let your little brother get away with things and don't believe you

That REALLY gets annoying. My brother does something, I get mad at him, and he's SEVEN. And my parents always say "he's younger than you are", or "He's little" or some crap like that. He's in second grade, I mean come on! Just ' believe me for once! He CAN hurt me, dad. Just because I'm a 6th grader I'm not invincible.

It's just plain unfair. They stick to whichever side of the argument they think is more feasible. They're still doing this when my younger brother's 13, for God's sake! One time, I dropped the iPad and they used MY money to repair it! When HE broke it, they used their own money! He's not 3 anymore, and I'm not some charity or insurance company! It is so unfair! - PositronWildhawk

I agree. The only reason I didn't have to do that was because I was bankrupt because I did chores for free - Enderninja327

This happen to me when I was a kid. But quite the opposite. My elder brother got angry with me, so I run to my mom and made up some story so he would be scolded. I also make my younger brother take the punishment that was meant for me and I was so happy. At first, I felt guilty - but in a long run, I realize that they deserve it. I just discovered that they have done much more bad things on me than I did on them. They been doing it since we were a child.

Yup 100% agree brother punches me across the face for not giving me game go show mom my swelling cheek and bloody mouth she says in blaming my brother like what why would I Make a few teeth crooked and bloody just to blame my brother who said he didn't do it with a bloody knuckle or two and later after my brother had punched me again on the pter side of the face and my mom saw it she said you made him do it I'm sitting there moving my jaw hurts and when I got to the dentist he asked who punched me and I said my brother he told my mom and said she saw him punch me but didn't beloved me still so yeah I have a fractured jaw and a chipped tooth I can't eat vey well and no one will help me and only my friend at school helps me eat I'm 18 and I'm thinking of running away to a small house I had built In the woods with some sticks a tarp from my house and I'm staying there until I find a place to live

? They force you to sign up for college classes over the summer

My mom did this and that class caused me so much unnecessary stress. - railfan99

Perfect definition of Asian parents

? When they complain too much about things

My parents complain about ANYTHING and EVERYTHING.

The Contenders

11 When you say all the other kids are doing it or have it they tell you that you're not other kids...but when they compare you to other people it's okay

"Mom please can I have call of duty? All of my friends have it! "
Mom-"Well they have a different family than us. Don't compare you with your friends. "
*A few weeks later*
"Mom can I go to the mall with my friends? "
Mom-"Does so-and-so's mom let him go to the mall without supervision? "

My mom threatened to hit me because I was playing Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto... what is life?

OH. MY. GOOD. THIS IS SO TRUE! I try every argument I can to get them to buy me an iPhone, including the "everyone else has one too"...
Me: Can I please please PLEASE have an iPhone 4s?
Me: Well yeah and I like iPhones too so please?
Dad: NO. You are NOT them and you are my kid so you must do what I say and I say NO.
***months later***
Me: *using their argument against them* Well its because, oh I don't know... I'm NOT THEM.
Dad: that's NOT THE POINT!

They compare us to some other people when they want to, but when it comes to the point that we're comparing ourselves to others, the reply we get is "DON'T COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHERS." - Pearl13

Abby can go there whenever she wants. I just want to go one time!
Yeah, but there are many kids who can't.
Yes, because their parents are narrow-minded. Unlike you. *asskisser-moment*

Son: Hey, dad. Can I drive your car?
Dad: No, son. You can't.
Son: Why, dad. Other parents they just let their children drive there cars.
Dad: Well, son. Do not compare yourself on them because you are not like them.
Son: It's unfair.
Dad: Look at your friend Carl. He doesn't drive the car of his parents. He just walk or use his bicycle.
Son: You said, "Don't compare my self to other kids". And now you're comparing me to my friend. what to that.

12 They die

Wish they could stay forever :-( - michaeler

Yeah I'm 14 years old and I was adopted by my actual grandparents (VERY LUCKY) there about 76 now.. but there still very strong and healthy for their age =)

Oh I'm gonna miss them when they die. You never appreciate things until they r gone. :(

Damn those other comments. We've been naughty we've been naughty. This is a real and true comment. - bluecameron

Family is family, yes, their going to annoy you sometimes, and yes, they know what's best for you because their your parents! Parents know all of your best stories, they comfort you during a break up, they might do annoying things like not letting you have a video game, or not letting you watch a certain television show. I sometimes get into fights with my parents over the most stupidest stuff. My advice to everybody who was so selfish to write a mean comment complaining about your parents, go punch a pillow in your room, if you're having Mommy or daddy issues, sit them down to talk about it, honestly, half of the stories on this list aren't even true. Let's respect them, they don't live forever, and when their gone, you'll remember how pathetic you were when you were 14 and you decided to go on a website and complain about your perfect, caring parents. Sorry this was so long, just thought that the message needed to get threw!

13 They think that they hold your future

about the parents who told that they want a doctor, scientist, teacher, businessman, nurse, lawyer

what if he wants to be an athlete, actor, musician, soldier, computer gamer

the world will be filled with boring individuals who doesn't enjoy life if thats the case - ronluna

I don't have parents like that but I do agree with what you say, everyone has their own choice of what they want to be when they grow up, I do understand that some parents just want their kids to have a career that can save other peoples life and all but it's not like they're skilled at that, it's not like everyone can be good at being a doctor, we have our own skills. - Hoenn4Ever

I think when it comes to parenting, I know that most parents out there probably think that they can hold their child's future by controlling things when it comes to what they should be and what they shouldn't be when they grow up. And I think that's bad parenting because while I do understand there are parents who wants their kids to be a doctor, scientist, mathematician, vet, psychologist, architect, teacher, lawyer, or professor for example, that might not be their passion, and I do think parents shouldn't force their kids to pick one of those professions if they're not passionate or good at it. What if your kids wants to be an actor, professional gamer, YouTuber, musician, athlete, blogger, or painter simply because they're passionate and skilled on one of those professions? It's not like every people wants to pick the same professions just cause their parents force them to. They're gonna be a grown ups, and it's not up to you parents to hold their future. Also, I know this comment ...more - Hoenn4Ever

My ambition is to be a fighter. This isn't unrealistic. I am a very talented martial artist and if I had the support and the correct amount of time put in, I could be in the UFC in 7 years (i am 15). However, my parents want me to be a doctor and they are cutting my training drastically, they say fighting is a thug sport and they do not see the passion I have (and its not because I am a wannabe thug lol). They are COMPLETELY against what I want and they get mad when I even mention the word fight. They have planned out my entire life for me. I get that I need my education as well as my training as I need a backup. I am that type of a person that will put the time in even if studying and training is the only thing I do (i will give up anything like playstation meeting with my friends etc). I know that with my parents not being supportive of this, I will never be able to get there. I know how it will end up. I will be in a job (maybe a doctor) that I like but I will always be thinking ...more

14 Your decisions don't matter but theirs do


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 could rant about this but I'd be typing all day

I quit a bakery job four months ago and when my dad first found out that I was planning on quitting, he nagged me for it and said I'm not doing it and wanted me to stay with it and we were pissed at each other for the next few days, I was also told by my stepmom to stay with it but I stood my ground and didn't let them hold me back, so I wrote a note to my boss and he understood that it didn't work out well. I once again got nagged by my dad since the 19th was my last day. but after my last day, he did give me credit for being honest about it

My dad has this strange philosophy where me, a girl in high school, is a minor and doesn't know anything and has 0 rights, while he, is a major, believes that he has all the rights and is entitled to our personal lives

15 They restrict my freedom

I'm 15 years old! I have never stayed the night at a freinds house, I never gone out with my freinds, none I of my freinds are allowed to come to my house.i'm not allowed to wear any make up what so ever, and I have no privacy and I never had a phone.Also I'm not allowed to have a Facebook, Twitter, or instagram! :(

Almost like mine, they let me have social media and have friends over and a phone. I can relate to the "no makeup" and "no sleepovers" thing. - Pegasister12

This is like story of my life. I cannot wait to be out of the house

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!

Well my parents always trust me and I always clear my search history, even if I have an account on this site. Though I'm not allowed to have social media until I'm 14, even if the FOURTH GRADERS have Instagram pages. Six more months, ugh! Though I still love them. - Anonymousxcxc

16 They take your things regardless of your permission.

Wait a minute... they took 100 clams/long greens/dough away? IF THEY'RE READING THIS HEY GUYS IF NOT DONE ALREADY PAY HIM 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.

I had over $100, but guess who took it away. - XxembermasterxX

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 mom just shuts up and sits there, I asked her why once and she said it was because I win every argument. - Queen-aholic

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.

sounds just like my mom except my #1 would be "NO" - Nu_Metal_rocks

18 They demand constant control over your electronics

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. - The_Random_Content_Guy

That must've sucked. Just make a new account, and refuse to give your mom the info, oh wait, they will throw a hissy fit! - crazycat99

Oh man, I just can't handle this. I get frustrated with homework, "Oh, must be that stupid computer! " and anything else that is making me not absolutely cheery is blamed on my electronics.

19 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...

When I offered my mom to help her clean the house my mom says "No. Go back to your studies instead. I don't need your help"

But when I was busy, she starts complaining like "Why won't you help me clean the house? You're lazy and you would be a terrible wife and mother in the future. You always treat me like a maid and blahblahblahblahblah"

I can't stand her sometimes. When someone wants to help her, she denies it and claims she doesn't need anyone's help.


And here they are now, complaining why I lack housekeeping skills without realizing how It's pretty much they're fault - MLPFan

That is EXACTLY what my mom says. It's always "focus on your books" but they want me to do loads of chores that they never taught me to do. My mom complains about being the maid, yet I was never taught how to clean the toilet or the shower. Even worse, they don't send me to learn piano or something like that. So it's 100% THEIR fault if I'm not a good wife or mother. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I am always lying and I am always wrong. They just don't want to listen

21 They shout at you for a slight mistake even if you didn't mean to do it

I've stepped on my mom's foot once, and I got grounded even though I said sorry. But when she steps on my foot, I forgive her. One day I stepped on her foot in public, and then she began too yell at me. After she was done yelling, I yelled at her back about her getting made when it was an accident, and me forgiving her when she did it too me. She was really embarressed and turned red. She never yelled when something dumb like that happened again.

Wow, I feel bad for you about getting grounded for stepping on your mom's foot. - mayamanga

I was in my room and my sister was visiting me and my family from California. Then the phone rang. My sister and my mom were both in the kitchen (closest to the home phone) but none of them answered. My room is far from any home phone we own and then I completely hear my dad yelling at my name and I got up quickly and went out my room and he told me in a loud yelling voice to pick of the phone and ran to the home phone only to find it was too late to answer so my dad quietly cursed the d word. He started yelling at me for the whole house to hear and made me cry and embarrassed since my sister was there and she was an adult and I'm only 11 years old. The day before that he yelled at me probably 2-3 times for something I didn't even do. And there was even more people at my house. My 5 year old niece was in my room and she banged something against the wall several times under my bed and I was about to get under my bed and tell her to stop until my dad came into my room and yelled at me ...more

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

23 When they find something out they tell EVERYONE they possibly know

Yes! I remember when I got my period for the first time my mom went and blabbed it to everyone in the family after I told her not to!
Worst part? We had a family party that night (distant relatives and friends too) so I came to the living room to say hi to everyone and my cousin yells out that I got my period just in case some didn't know even though everyone knew and then the whole night everyone was telling me how proud they were that I got it! :$ so embarrassing!

That happened to me and I was so mad. She told my grandma before I went to her house and my grandma told me how to work a pad even though I already knew how to. I just wanted to go die in a hole.

Yeah... SOMETIMES... Like when I fell in a river... And she told EVERYONE. I was so embarrassed. All the people are laughing at me!

I tripped on my little brother's baseball, my mom had to tell every single person she met that whole entire week! I got so angry, and she was like: "Oh, so now I can't talk to my friends, or about my daughter? " and then yelled at me.

My made up story Part 2:

Son: Mom, can you stop telling your friends a lot of embarrassing things that happened to me?! Please?!
Mom: *gets a microphone and a loud speaker* Hey everyone. I would like to say a couple of things that happened to Garrett.
Man: Like what?
Mom: Some hilarious things! One time, when Garrett was a baby, my husband, Barney gave him a lot of milk, then he vomited in his face. All the water in the house was dirty, so they both drove to the park, and had to bathe in the lake full of ducks.
*people laugh*
Son: Mom, why?!
Mom: I also remember when he had a crush on this one girl named Lesley, and a swarm of wasps stung Garrett in his face when they were at the door.
Son: Thinking: Mom, please shut up.
Mom: One time, we went camping in this one place in the woods, where there was a spot with no trees. Garrett had to pee so badly, but there wasn't a bathroom anywhere, so I told him to go in the forest. Then, there was a cave near him, ...more

They think I'm doing bad in school just because I'm on my phone. And I am doing great in school.

They blame everything on my phone

I'm in 6th grade and I still don't have a cellphone! I try getting reallly good grades. Now, I have straight A's and my mom is strict and says that children are way to young to have cellphones. One kid in my class isn't even trying, gets B's in everything, AND HAS AN IPHONE XS MAX! WHAT DID THEY DO TO DESERVE THAT?

25 They see only negative things inside you

My dad is determined that I have anger issues but this is the result Of the fact that he is super religious and can't handle the fact of an argument. Also he tried to perform an exersism on me when I was 13. I am now 18 and know his attitude is pure BS. He is extremely hipocritical towards his religion and his "beliefs"

That's true cause my mom says that I need to stop to talk to myself so much

Seriously, do they think that I earn straight A's by sitting on my ass all day?

I suck at social and for me getting 80 on social is amazing but my parents are like no you should have gotten at least 90 I'm taking away all the electronics in my house. I'm very depressed because in social we do current events and I can't get a high grade without hound online and checking the news or T.V. it's so annoying and when I told them this they gave me a T.V. plugged it in and kept it on static with no channels on the T.V. and said tere you go three my papers at me and told me to work when they asked me why I got 0 I told then the same thing and they said I should have told them I'm depressed and think they only like my brother who can do anything because he's one year younger and deserves more freedom I'm thinking of committing suicide but I don't want to because of all my friends please help I'm super depressed phones don't work my parents have a tracker on me all the time it's stupid

I hate it when my dad does this - DrayTopTens

Every time I want to take a break from their judgmental remarks and from school, they always bother me and then I tell them I want to stay in my room and they're like: WHY?

And then I get stressed again because they don't understand that I like being alone sometimes!

Happens every single time no matter what I tell them.

Honestly they ' use a guilt trip mechanic against me and it always gets to my head, makes me depressed and then I would try to de-stress myself and continue work but then it apparently is the adequate amount of time for them to but in my life again and depress me all over for wasting time...

He is non-stop shouting f bombs at the top of his lungs at the dog. I would criticize him right now but he would yell at me if I did. my wild dad needs to seriously calm down. I understand why he is angry but it is unnecessary to act like a super crazy animal. - DrayTopTens

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.

Mom: did you have to be spiteful?
me: well do you have to ask? rachel (my cousin) was being rude, she used the tip of the correction tape to scratch me, her elder! *shows her the scratch mark*
mom: shut up. I don't want to hear you talk back. rachel is young and doesn't know anything, she couldn't have done that on purpose. that small scratch should be nothing for you. you're her elder right? then you should bear with it and stop whining

WHAT THE HELL? do you really think a dumb child would use the TIP of the correction tape to scratch people?! what do you mean nothing for me? wanna try that? I'll use the same thing to scratch you and I'll see how you like that

Sometimes my mom tells me to be quiet even if I'm trying to TALK to her or apologize!

33 They treat you like a maid

I suffered this kind of treatment when I was a kid. I know, most of you are angry but there is a positive things to this. If you learn how to do all the works without waiting for someone to command you, your life becomes so meaningful. Your time becomes useful and learn how to work on your own. Making some decision that is not based from your parents and learn to make your own strategy on works. The more you treat your work as a hobby, the more you realize your enjoying it. And, it is a great advantage for you if you are capable of all the works in your house because it becomes your nature. You will bring it where ever you go. You can easily see the difference between clean and dirty. You will appreciate more on the good things that you've done and be proud to your self because you have done good things everyday and see the results like you've done it on your own, without the help of others. It happen to me that is why I know the feelings. First, it's kind of insulting and feel like ...more

I have always been my mother's maid. Give her massage, pull her white hair, water the huge garden and her plants, help her laying the table for meals, etc. All that when I was about 6 or 7. She never stood up for myself when I would get into fights with siblings no matter what. She would constantly compare me to my younger sister saying I should be like her. Today I have been still the maid of the house, do the cleaning, and became the caretaker of her since she got very ill from a brain surgery. She still never stands for myself when I need and as soon as I turn my back she talk about me to my sisters. When I say I am overwhelmed with so much work all I get from my sisters is that I am a whiny person while they get on with their lives.

Oh my god I hate this. I did some dishes and other stuff before my mom came home only to have her complain about every little part that I didn't do. At least say thanks for the stuff I did do!

I always have been treated like a slave, my parents say I HAVE to listen to them because I'm just a minor. LIKE WHAT THE HELL! They treat me like I just blew up the house. I have to help my mother with the garden and my mom knows I can get headaches this way. I don't like going down the hall and calling my dad for his meals. I can just stay here and yell "DAD ITS TIME FOR YOUR MEALS! " I don't like carrying my dad his tea. Like what the hell.

Don't make this think that my dad abuses me though. He would never do that however I hate it when he calls me those words. - DrayTopTens

When they get angry, they really go all out and never apologise. My parents say a lot of things that are incredibly hurtful. Like ‘we’ve failed as parents to have raised a bitch of a daughter like you’ or ‘you should’ve never been born’ or ‘there’s something wrong with you, that’s not normal’ or they tell me to stop eating so much and then when I don’t eat anything, they practically force feed me.
They’re not abusive though, I just wished they’d apologise when they say things like that. I can’t look at them the same each time they say something like that.

Parents: How do you feel about moving?
Me: It's my worst nightmare.
Parents: Well you need to keep that negativity to yourself! Why don't you like it?
Me: Oh, maybe because I just made a friend at our new church, also I don't have a phone, I can only get on the internet for school or to do something for you, also I'm on my last year of high school, and this place is about an hour away from here, so I will have no life there, except for taking care of the chickens, ducks, and other animals.

Last year, 2017, I finally got the courage to tell my mom I was suffering from depression (I've had it since I was 12, in 2015) and you know what she said? "It's because of all those scary movies and creepypasrstas you watch".

This is true. I finally got the guts to tell my mom that I think I was going through depression and she told me: "You know what? If you're going through depression I'm not going to take you to the doctor so they can give you some 'magical' pill that will help you. You are going to join group activities, I'm going to take away your phone and electronics and you're gonna enjoy it. Also you're grounded for a week."

Mom: When I was your age music was much better
Mom: When I was your age I read tons of books.
Mom: When I was your age I had nothing.
Mom: When I was your age I had more friends then you.

In that case your mom would be lying to try to up your standards.

My dad always does that and it's the most annoying thing ever! When I was your age I would be half way up a mountain by now not watching T.V.!

I think, the parents has a point. Just think about it. If you become a parent, what would you say to your children. When I was your age, I always playing with my cellphone, always going to some mall and buy anything I want even it's not important. What if your children will do the same thing. They don't help you because, they are too busy of texting and doing some stuff on wi-fi. What would you say? Can you say something that would make yourself proud to say to your children that you have done it when you are on the same age with your child? I don't think so.

"When I was your age I didn't have whatever you are currently using."

They think I don't listen when THEY don't listen to everything that's making me depressed

They are hyprocites for this.

Parents are stupid. My parent is stupid and is lacking as a human being and I will leave them permanently when I have the chance.

Ok so I am fourteen years old, and I have a condition called autism basically it s a bit like Asperger I think and I find it really difficult to make friends. And one day my mum finds out that I am being bullied and I try to tell them that it ain't my fault! And they just won't bloody listen

44 They don't let you buy something with your own money

I want to buy an iPhone because my Blackberry is starting to break. Whenever I bring up the subject, my mom tries to change the subject. So annoying! - Danielsun182

When you ask them to buy something for you, they say "no" and tell you to earn your own money and buy yourself. But when you saved up for it wisely, they say you can't and tell you to save money for college instead of "wasting it on useless things". =

Then what is the point of having an allowance? - MasterHand

And they don't buy with their own money! What's the point in having an allowance if you don't use it?!

46 They can hit you or get physical with you and get away with it

It's no fair and they say sometimes 'I hit you because I love you' and if you hit them they yell at you.

They shouldn't hit you at all. That's abusive or child abuse. No parent should ever lay a finger on their child. It's wrong. But I guess since they're the adult they can do whatever they want and get away with it.

That's so true, my mom always gets in my face like she's gonna hit me when I show that I'm mad or I feel bad about her scolding me all the time. For a long time she and just my parents in general just treated me badly and I was depressed all the time. My dad has never really been around, and to be honest, I really don't want to have to live with either of my patents. I always think to myself that I wish I could just live by myself and not have to deal with other people. I have always felt like my mom was always bad mouthing my dad to me to make me hate him. For instance she would always randomly talk about him for no reason. My dad does the same thing and my parents secretly hate each other. I don't really think they like me either. I always feel like I'll never be accepted cause I'm not macho enough for my dad or I'm not uptight enough for my mom. I just wanna live for me and stop feeling so inadequate. People make fun of me all the time because I'm skinny and don't walk around with ...more

When I was young, my mom SLAPPED ME in the FACE. Just because I didn't use the Washroom upstairs.

At my mom's, she slaps me. That's why I love my father's house. My mom slapped me really hard because she was working and I accidentally pushed my sister off her bed. She is great and forgave me, so did my aunt, who saw it. Then my aunt decided to tell my mom when she asked how Emily (my sister) got the bruise I was responsible for kinda giving her and also a cut on her forehead. She gives me the silent treatment for five days and then I am lying on my bed reading when my mom comes in and SLAMS the door behind her. She grabs my knee with one hand and in the other she hits me until I see stars and the room is spinning (I pass out for two seconds). Then she yanks my arm down hard and I still have that scar on my arm from it scratching (on purpose) against my desk eight months later. My dad was absolutely boiling with rage for my mother and so was my step-mom. Then two months ago I asked if she remembered when she made me pass out and she says, "you deserved it." and shoos me out of the ...more - Swiftdawn

47 They force you to go everywhere with them

My mom never acts look that. But my dad calls himself a man and than the next day...
Dad: Son, can u come with me to Home Depot.
Me: Why
Dad: Because, I am too scared to be by myself

Last summer my parents forced me to go to a Chinese lantern festival even though I find it boring.

My mom gets me to a Nicolas party filled with 5 year olds who stare at me the whole party and are also annoying in "games" and also babies are there. BABIES. I feel like I was somewhere in my nightmares. But it was reality. NEVER GO ON A SAINT NICOLAS PARTY! NEVER! - MinecraftHater

Sadly, you are not the only one here...by the way bro, Minecraft is great! - Coreforce

"Come with me to get my nails painted. We can match red."

"I'm in marching band and we have a competition tomorrow. We're not allowed to."

"I don't care. Come along and get your toes painted and stop complaining.

48 Ask why we do a thing, then get angry when we answer

YES sometimes my parents ask me something, and when I don't answer, they get mad, so then I DO answer, and they get mad because of the answer. MAKE UP YOUR MID, DO YOU WANT ME TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION OR NOT?!

That's happened to me like over a million times! I step on my sister's foot by accident and my mum asks me why I did it and I say it was an accident and she gets angry because I didn't "Say Why"

49 They say mean things to you

Every second of the day! My parents say rude things to me and when I say stuff that comes off as rude they yell at me! So hypocritical!

I was called a 5 year old for having depression

There was a time when I got into volleyball and then there was a one-day clinic near our place and me and my brother joined. When we were given one minute water breaks, we return to the bleachers where our parents are. They would say 'You were so lame' 'I would've probably done a better job than you'
LIKE is that what they're supposed to say instead of being supportive? IT'S NOT LIKE we've been playing for such a long time that someone taught us professionally proper forms etc. YOU CAN'T EXPECT SOMEONE TO GET BETTER AT JUST ONE DAY. IT TAKES MORE THAN JUST THAT. Even the coach at that clinic said so! At least he was approving that we'd done a pretty decent job. This continued even in the car. DON'T THEY KNOW THAT THEY'RE UNKNOWINGLY DISHEARTENING US MORE? My brother and I know it already ourselves that we aren't that good so we don't need those words especially from them.

My father's "lectures" are my most dreaded moments. He thinks that he's motivating me but it really doesn't help when he tells you that you're a dead flower. "I try everything with you and all I get is a dead flower. A disappointment."
One other time, my parents argued that I didn't talk to them enough so I decided to try and cooperate with them. My father told me that I was nothing, I had nothing to offer just like the wall behind me I was of no use. My self-esteem was very low and I was like "maybe I am nothing." (I was talking to them honestly as they requested). You know what my father does? He spits in my face and tells me I'm weak and pathetic.

50 Defend the actual bad people

This needs to be higher! My idiot parents always defends those rude to me! The best part is they always tell me not to he rude and I explain they were rude first and they try using excuses on why they were rude! I hate my family so damn much!

My cousins and sister does bad stuff, and my parents defend them and accuse ME instead.

I'm not even gonna talk about this
