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 damn 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 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 annoying, but if parents never say this, would you listen to them? - Userguy44

3 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...

The story of my life

4 They turn the littlest things into a huge deal.

I didn't put my fork and knife together on my plate once, and mom complained. It's no big deal! - QueenieAG

I once reacted when my mom accidentally touched my butt. She got offended by my reaction and made it a big deal. :/ - Misfire

When they Clean at night nothing good happens - Ghosty

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

When you lie you get punished for lying but when you tell the truth you get punished for whatever you did - Mii24

6 They get mad over small mistakes

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

No. This applies to my grandma. - TheAwesomeDude54

7 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

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

My mom was like if u suck your thumb too much it will fall off 4 years later I realize that was a lie I want those thumb sucking days back

Well she is wrong! She sucked her thumb when she was a baby and it never fell off - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

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!

No they call it talking back - Carsrule300

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

9 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

Give him a drink and say you're sorry but pour bleach in the cup and serve it. - AlphaQ

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

Ya, this is so true. If you are a parent, try and reason with your kids and not punish them for thinking you are wrong. No one is perfect. Neither are your kids. It's not like they will always listen to you.

And that you are always wrong - Ghosty


The Contenders

11 They never understand

I really love art and my passion is to become a professional artist and buy some professional art supplies. I get so focused on art that my father will always complain to me about being too focused on art and doing the "useless " hobby called art all the time. Whenever I buy art supplies and he noticed it, he's gonna say, "always drawing. You'll never focus on your studies. Drawing will not help you." He'll never understand about following your own path. - ConeHat

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

But they do understand as a 12 year old girl I know its really hard sometimes. but they do understand.

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!

12 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.

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

I love to draw and I wanted to be a professional artist in the future. But my father will always complain about me always drawing and he keeps saying that I should become a doctor or engineer, but I don't like to. Same with my mom but she's less complaining. I'm not even good at math how can't even graduate college of engineering? - ConeHat

14 Your decisions don't matter but theirs do

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. - slipperyjack30


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 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

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

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

Yes it’s true my parent is not allowed me to go trick or treat with my friend. I told my dad I want to go trick or treat and he say no. He said deadly shootings in Long Beach and he is too scary that I go with my friend what.

16 They take your things regardless of your permission.

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. - ConeHat

This would happen to me. My family has a financial issue for a certain reason so I can see a reason on why this happens to me. However my dad would just take my money without permission and not tell me. - 0w0uwu

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.

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.

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!

17 They get mad when you prove them wrong

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

I feel bad for your mom if she always loses the arguments, she might start thinking she's stupid and start being depressed, that happened to my mom once

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.

Excuse me, but I don't get why your PARENTS need to get YOUR permission to take away the stuff that THEY bought? If I were you, I would be glad I have devices. I'm nine and people commenting on here probably 13! Think smarter than a nine year old, people! - Ummmmmm

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

18 They demand constant control over your electronics

They sit their with their electronic signature all day but when I use mine it's like u abuse your electronic and when I say they do too they be like I need it for work and I'm like I need it for school and socializing because if I get lost how am I supposed to contact u

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

They also stalk your electronics. - 24601

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

19 When they ask a question and you try to answer and they tell you to be quiet.

Mom: SO how was school?
Me: Ohh, well we learned about...

WELL YOU ASKED, I always just what to PUNCH somwthing when she does that!

This is kind of like me; my mom will ask a question and as I'm about to answer she for whatever reason asks it again,it's like "Be QUIET so I can SPEAK! "

*whispers* "Mom I am trying to explain."
Mom: Shhh stop being so loud everyone can hear you; you are embarrassing everyone in this family! "
mOm I Am jUsT TryInG TO ExpLaiN! I am whispering!

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.

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

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. - ConeHat

When I ask if I can say up late they say no and I say why not and they say I'm the parent you're the child

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 - ILUVMEHLIFE

It's a dumb excuse. - Jasmine21064

22 Who are you texting?

I HATE IT WHEN THEY DO THAT! Its none of your business stay out of my life please!

Now, I'm sure your parents have the right to say "Who are you texting? " Since they gave BIRTH (Aka life) to YOU. - Ummmmmm

My mom would ask me who am I chatting with in the forums. I would walk away with my phone but my mom would get mad at me for not telling her who am I chatting with. - ConeHat

OH MY GOD I want to punch my dad in the face when he asks that!

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

24 They hate cell phones

I have a Galaxy S6, it's screen protection is so good, I drop it on concrete, no cracks, but the storage, ugh - TheAwesomeDude54

1st world problem.

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

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"

Not all parents are like this though. - Userguy44

Negative inside you is pretty correct. I was STANDING UP to my mom and suddenly she freaked and swore I was POSSESSED! Are you insane?

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 :(

26 Overprotective

My mom is overprotective, for a good reason - CatLeena14

Yup - KittyWolf

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! "

Mine too at times. Not all the time.

27 When they say you don't concentrate on your work even though you are coming back with perfect grades

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'm locked up in my room all day, and they think I'm getting distracted! Like, do you THINK I wanna be stuck in my room all day with homework that has to be done?

I got a B+ in maths and my grandma beat me - HaloFanboy

28 Always interrupting/bad timing

I remember getting grounded several times because I kept interrupting my mom. But nearly EVERY TIME I'm talking to my dad, she just starts talking to him while I'm talking about something completely different. I ask her why she did that, and her response is "me and your dad can have a conversation with more than two people". I tell her, but every time I do that to you, you get angry and say I'm interrupting. Then she just gets angry and sends me to my room. - slipperyjack30

I was busy eating my fave food sauteed green beans that I enjoyed it. Suddenly that appetite got lost when my mom told me to prepare some ice from the fridge since she bought a bottle of soda. I got mad at her that my father ended up not telling me to fetch the ice and told my sister to get it instead (he's concerned about my appetite) - ConeHat

I had make a sandwich and feed the dogs. So I fed dogs and made sure they did their business. I get inside and mom freaks over how little time she has. I explained but she was rushing. Have some patience - Ghosty

I can never finish anything

29 Make you feel like a horrible person because of your decisions


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.

I hate it when my dad does this - DrayTopTens

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...

30 They're cheap

I don't get why kids commenting on here say stuff about their parents. Especially when they are cheap. The reason they are cheap, is because they buy you blankets, hot water, devices, toys, mattresses, food, sink water, pets, etc. I bet you don't even thank them! - Ummmmmm

I have really started to appreciate my life after I saw a episode of Extreme Cheapskates where a daughter wanted a $2 shirt and the mom thought it was too much. - railfan99

Perfect description of Asian parents.

My Asian parents took it up to eleven, though. They are SO CHEAP that my dad went psycho and threw a temper tantrum fit for a toddler...all because I got multiple copies of FREE brochures at my local library! >:(

I think the reason they did not give it to you guys is becuase that is probably a scam - lemur

31 They want to make you do something but then they don't agree on it
32 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!

33 They treat you like a maid

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.

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've suffered this treatment all my life. Since I'm the middle child (I'm the second eldest among the four of us sisters) and I never exect that I would get all the pubishments (it is said that middle children gets the least happiness and most work from their parents). My mom is always the ones treating me like a maid. She tells me everyday to do the chores, clean our very huge floor, search her hair for some nits or stuffs (she doesn't even have any), cook for her, etc. She also disrupts me from doing my projects or sleeping just to being her a glass of water that she could even reach (I'm always at the upper part of the house and she's downstairs. She tells me to bring her a glass of water from the kitchen, which is downstairs, so I have to walk from my room to the stairs to the kitchen just for her water). She even let me do heavy jobs even if I have a period. If I xomplain to her, she's gonna scold me for being a lazy bum and she'll shout at me, even if I give her a valid reason ...more - ConeHat

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!

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

My mom flipped over hand washing. - Ghosty

This totally describes my dad. My dog spilled his food and water all over the floor and HE IS FLIPPING OUT LIKE INSANE RIGHT NOW! HE IS EXTREMELY FURIOUS! My dad is screaming and swearing like crazy. 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

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

SOOO true!

35 When parents ask you to do something over and over again that you are already doing

I hate that when it happens. My parents do it like every day and really gets on my nerves. To me it is really a sign of lack of intelligence. Like when I'm upstairs or something like that it seems really stupid that they just can't ask instead.

IKR I was brushing my teeth once and I finished but I was told to do it again and same with my hair my grandma helped me brush my hair and my grandpa told me to do it again! - Firegirl110

Same for me - CatLeena14

Ohmy god yes. Sometimes I'll be walking past my dads computer and my mom will be like "don't run into his computer" when I'm already 10 feet past it. -.

36 They call you insulting names

This happens to me sometimes but not often. - andrewteel

Because you don't do the things they want you to do. They get very angry when you do something wrong, that's why they insult you. - Ummmmmm

Everything they take wrong

My dad called me an a-hole. - TeamRocket747

37 They talk with someone for ridiculously long periods of time

Same with my dad

My dad talks on the phone for over an hour. The longest he has ever talked on the phone was three hours. - DrayTopTens

Me: Hey dad! Can we get some ice cream?
Dad: Sure son! (phone rings) Oop! Wait just a second!
(Dad talks for hours and hours)
Dad: OK! Lets get the ice cream!

I got a funny joke
When parents talk, kids die
ok not that funny - JustJake27

38 They compare you to other kids

I hate when my parents do this!
Mom: why can't you be like your friend Maria who never argues with her parents?
Me: how do you know that she never argues with her parents?
Mom: I talked to her parents, and they said that she is very well behaved!
Me: her parents could be lying! Do you really thing that her parents would actually tell you the truth if the does?
Mom: she behaves well when she comes over!
Me: Of course she would behave well here she is a guest! You have no clue how she is outside or at home!

So one time my friend maddy said "family before friends" about something and now my mom like uses it as a weapon I'm like what

I'm kinda like a tomboy with girly girl traits. I don't like to wear make up, wear trendy clothing, have crushes, or any girly girl attributes but I do like to wear dresses and flat shoes (the girls nowadays don't wear dresses). I always focus on non-girly stuffs such as reading science, watching cartoons, etc. My father notices this and then always tell me that I should be like the other trendy girls and I look like some castaway who doesn't fit with society. I keep saying that it's my body so it's my business but he'll never listen and still compare me with other girls. - ConeHat

Mom: What did you get on your test?
Me: I got an A-
Me : Uh-
Mom: LOOK AT TRINA! She probably got an A+
Me thinking: you compare me with anybody you can possibly imagine.

I love my parents, but they compare me to people a lot, which is very obnoxious! I get so mad and tell them to stop comparing me! And then they deny that they are comparing me and tell me to not use that dialogue!

39 You try to tell them how you feel but they don't care

It always happen to my and sometimes my sister. Sometimes we get to have a period and our body will feel weak and our legs and tummy will cramp. But even with all those pain, our mom would force us to do heavy chores. She doesn't care about our problems.

I also get to have mood swings whenever I'm on period and I always tell my parents not to make me work for them, for I'll uncontrollably get mad at them and they'll scold me for not following them. They instead let me work for them and it's them who's making my and their madness becuase they're the first ones to make the first move. - ConeHat

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.
Parents: Well, your just going to have to suck it up and deal with it and show some respect!
Me: Then why ask, if you don't want to hear what I really think?

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."

My mom didn't believe me when I told her I had depression, she still doesn't. A psychologist even confirmed it for her. - Chelseyne

I could always be honest with my parents and tell them how I feel. They really, TrueType do care. My parents are great!

40 They keep forcing you to talk to them although you literally have nothing to say

This happens so often - KittyWolf

THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME! And then they say you are not appreciative of them and tell you it's the internet's fault :/

Why mum? So you can share new gossip about your child's privacy to your friends that I don't know well and every family member we have?

They ignored me whenever I tried talking to them as I grew up, so now when I don't talk to them hey get angry and call me names. - Chelseyne

41 If you start crying, it’s the end of the world

I feel bad for her


I'm an adult and my parents banned me from crying :(

Well, this is completely unrelated, but my friend Jackie's stepmom is a liar! Her name was X (just want to remain anonymous! ) Her stepmom was married, and always commited adultery. Jackie had a dad who X. X always said that "sex is really bad you know." AND "I love your father. I can't wait till he's back from his business trip." But then, when Jackie's dad left for a business trip, X invited her boyfriend over to dinner. She told Jackie that he was "a close friend" (Jackie was only 6 at the time, so she didn't really know much) They started to kiss and make out. When Jackie asked why they were doing that if they were friends, her massive liar boyfriend said they were doing a "little science experiment" Then, the boyfriend, Z, (anonymous! ) pulled down X's shirt and bra and sucked on her. Jackie was so confused and just turned away. Then, X told Jackie that Z and her needed some "alone time" Jackie went upstairs to ask X what they were going to eat for dinner. Then she saw in a small ...more

42 They poop and don't flush

Lol my mom rarely does this! I can't stop laughing now! - andrewteel

My parents don't do this. - railfan99

My dad does this and I get the job of being his cleaner apparently because pushing a handle is the equivalent of running a mile to him.

43 When they say when I was your age...

Mom: When I was your age we'd watch ants all day doing nothing."
Mom: When I was your age I behaved perfectly
Mom: When I was your age I never talked back.
Mom: When I was your age I had no video games
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.
Shall I go on?

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."

"Okay, but now we do have it! Isn't that amazing! "

"No, things cannot change, and the few things that have improved this century should be illegal."

Fortunately, that doesn't apply to me. - Jawsome274

44 They make you do things that aren't important, regardless of your will.

Like I had already said, related to this statement. PARENTS SHOULD NOT HAVE TO THINK ABOUT YOUR WILL, FOR THINGS THAT THEY WANT YOU TO DO! Parents have gave you life, food, clothes, etc. And you treat them like you don't care! I bet spoiled brats made all of these comments, saying yes. - Ummmmmm

I always suffer this. My parents always make me do cheesy things, like read stupid books, watch horrible movies, and so on!

"Son, lets watch Frozen! It's extremely overrated so that's why it's amazing! "

"No mom! I hate that movie! "


Me: Hey Mom, could we please watch Into The Spider Verse/Pokemon I Choose You/Moana/any other actually decent animated movie?

Mom: NO! Go watch some cashgrab movie that's exactly the same as all the others with a cute animal/non existant made-up being!

Me: I need to prepare. *Grabs Switch, popcorn, manga, headphones, and pillow*

My mom: "No screens! "

Me: "But the T.V. is a screen! "

My mom: "But that's different! "

Me: "How? If I'm playing a game, at least I'm doing something! If I had chosen one of MY movies, maybe I could understand getting into a deep story, but this is the exact same thing we've watched 420.69 times! "

My mom: "You know what, I'm the mom, and you listen to me."

Of course, I'm somewhat of a ninja, so I get to use my phone and look at memes, but still! - Jawsome274

My cousin is autistic, my parents dragged me out so I could watch this stupid movie about autistic people even know I have been in an autistics kids class for the last 6 years, and when this cousin came over he was continuously bugging me about using my macbook even know he has no idea how to use one or bugging my mum to use her iPad or my iPod or her phone or dads phone even know he stuffs them up if we did let him - nope234

Hey I am on the autism spectrum, and I worked really hard to be "normal" so I get your cousin a bit, but if you didn't want to see a movie then why didn't your parents listen to you. - Anonymousxcxc

45 Parents never listen

This is true with me, a lot of times my mom stuffs my head with questions. And when I say an answer, or question she acts like she didn't even hear! This mostly happens when it's nighttime so I go under my covers and cry. The next day, I go to school with a grumpy attitude. Then she screams at me for not paying attention! This will sometimes happen repeatedly, so I am trying to get used to it. - Ummmmmm

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.

46 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

I save my allowance to buy some professional art supplies (stuffs my parents will never buy for me). I wanted to buy some Prismacolors with my money but my parents will not allow me because they'll use my money for food or stuffs like that. I didn't buy it but I ended up telling my grandma to buy me Prismacolors on Christmas (she bought a 72 pack and I was happy, but my parents are still mad at me for wanting to have a "useless" product) - ConeHat

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

True. It's just like your parent telling you to temporarily hold their money. - ConeHat

47 They never apologize

It is like pulling teeth - Ghosty

My dad yelled at me so loudly and meanly I cried for 8 hours and he never apologized.

And defend their way of thinking even its offensive

Once my dad banged me on the wall and never said sorry

48 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.

When I was younger my dad would grab a belt or a shoe or just use his hand to hit me and it would HURT! Most of the time it was just because I didn't do my Homework which was hard with ADHD. The lowkey slightly mentally scarred me as a child. I know I don't have the worst story gladly, but still it was a low point in many of the bad things in my childhood. - 0w0uwu

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

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

49 They force you to go everywhere with them

My mom would always force me to walk with her at the bridge near our house. I keep saying no becuase my legs would cramp after but she'll still forcing me. If she's tired of me saying no, she'll say pathetic lines like "she doesn't like me anymore" which is very annoying to hear. - ConeHat

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

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.




50 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"
