Ten Most Annoying Things About Parents

The Top Ten

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

My brother is constantly trying to get me in trouble by lying as I don't do anything, but my parents believe him. When he actually does something bad, I tell them, and they always say: "Stop lying to get your little brother in trouble." It's SO unfair

I was taking something out of the dishwasher and it smelled gross, so I said, "huh, what's that smell" and my stepmom comes over and says, "stop complaining about how your sister does the dishes!" because my sister takes care of the dishes. I said I wasn't complaining, and she smelled the bowl. She couldn't smell it and told me to stop lying

Sometimes I use my laptop to type up reports, and my mom thinks I'm playing something or on YouTube. Also, if I don't understand a topic, she says I was all my time in class. What, I haven't got a B since fifth grade.

Everything I say, my dad thinks it's a lie. He's always asking, did you this, did you do that, and I say yes, and he's like, "Yeah right." And it pisses me off so damn much.

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

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.

Mom: Take this gun and kill some innocent kids.
Kid: Why?
Mom: Because I said so.

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

Okay dude you don't need a laptop... But if your parents don't care about injuries that is neglect

Very extremely annoying. They repeat this crap over and over again until your ears bleed. ENOUGH WITH THE I SAID SO! IS THAT YOUR CATCHPHRASE OR SOMETHING? VERY RUDE AND DISRESPECTFUL.
Here is my list of the family members you people have and they are getting on your nerves really bad.
#1 mothers: sometimes even moms can make your life horrible dude. They always like to be doing annoying things to you like turn off your tablet or whatever other device you have. Sometimes they can be nosy to like reading your diary or your texts but that doesn't happen to me though. They can sometimes ask what are you doing and all that other crap they say but here is the mothers annoying quote/catchphrase:NO. Well that is there quote it is the word NO.

Your siblings:even siblings can be annoying. They repeat words over again well if you have a sibling under the age of 8 then that's true. If you have a sibling from ages 12 and up then they act mature and responsible. Siblings can get into ...more

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.

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

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

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

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

4 They turn the littlest things into a huge deal.

like you don't care about something that they are doing but you care about. Then say your "not being nice" for being interested. Like awkward stuff

I just got back from a trip and my ipad only had 30%, so I charged it with my charger. My dad says "give me your charger." I asked my dad why he needed it. He said his phone had no charge. I told my dad "I'm charging my IPad, I can give it to you later." He said " GIVE ME YOUR CHARGER NOW! MY PHONE HAS NO CHARGE." So I took the charger and put it on my dad's night stand, and he started yelling at me for not giving the charger to him in his hands, and made me plug in his phone. When I plugged in his phone, I found out he had 75%. After I finished plugging it in he grounded me for a month and on my way out kept yelling at me.

One time, when I was in 8th grade... It was in September 2015 when this happened... And it was on a Friday.

I was outside with my Dad where he was doing yardwork (as usual) and he wanted me to do something for him.

Dad: Hey, Marika. Could you take the green garbage can up to where the water jugs are?

Me: Okay, Dad---

Me (in my mind): I know he said water jugs, but I don't see any... I might as well just put them by this plant (to my right)

A few minutes later...


Me: I'm sorry Dad, when you said "water jugs" I didn't know what you meant

Then, he pointed to wear 3 large blue water containers were by the wooden fence of our driveway


After that, I went back in my house and said to myself...

Me (in my mind again): Well, screw this job!

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

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

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

Mom: "So have you decided on a career path?"
Me : "Mom, I want to be a doctor."
Mom: "Be honest, honey"
Me: "Okay, I want to be a journalist!"

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.

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

Making no mistakes leads to no learning, if you get mad at your child for making small mistakes they will think mistakes are always bad and will be discouraged from trying nee things or to understand difficult stuff like math.

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

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.

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.

As well as the TV show Peppa Pig:

Daddy Pig: What? 1 Pound? (Woah. You could earn that with Pocket Money.)

8 They call it arguing but you call it explaining

I was talking to my stepmom and then she hears my two sisters complaining with each other and they were hardly arguing at all. So my stepmom goes over and starts screaming "Stop yelling and fighting all the time!" Like seriously they weren't yelling and my stepmom was being far louder

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

This is one of the worst ones for me. Anytime my mom suggests anything to me that I don't 100% agree with she acts as if I'm attacking her. This is just one of the many examples.

Mom: Your boyfirend should get an associates degree in something because it's the new high school deploma as far as employment is concerned.

Me: I would rather him go to a trade school and learn something he actually likes and get a job that can't be out sourced.


Me:...I think I just said I wanted him to go to school but okay whatever...

It's generally always "You or someone you know should do this." "This would probably work better for me/us/them but it's the same concept as what you were saying" " YOU NEVER LISTEN YOU ALWAYS ARGUE"

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!

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

If I do anything wrong, it's always "How dare you!" If my little brother does something wrong, it's "Oh well. You have to learn, don't you." When we empty the dishwasher, he just runs upstairs, and plays on my Switch, and of course that isn't important when I go up to his room to get him when I realise what he is doing. I just get my laptop taken away for a month.

SO true, my brother is a huge brat, he always has his nose in my business, he acts like a jerk to me, and he ruins everything I get or do. My parents let him get away with almost all of it, AND get me in trouble for garbage he does. I hate it so darn much

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

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

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

I just love the way they judge everything

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.

10 They never understand

Welcome to my world. It's nearly impossible to make them understand something about your life. Even if they do understand, they never help. Then they wonder why you always slouch around in a sad mood. are you serious?

So I have Depression and I tell my dad about it, and he's like, "You don't have Depression! You're just sad!" Really? Sad for half of my life? I don't think so! My dad is the worst, whenever I tell him my feelings, he throws it out the window, and emotionally abuses me. He doesn't care about my feelings.

That's practically my life right there. It's been slightly better this year though

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.

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

The Contenders

11 They always think they are right

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

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

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

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

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

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

When school had just closed for coronavirus I wasn't able to keep my grades up because I was constantly getting distracted by all the stuff in my house like my devices and the baby and when I told her this she just yelled at me and told me it's ot that hard to do when she has never had to do all that school work from home and have to focus on stuff so boring u can't help but get distracted

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."

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*

Ugh yes whenever I ask for something and say "But my friends parents allow them to!", they say "Well I'm not your friends parents". Then they say "Why don't you get A's in everything?". "You barely know my friends." UGH

13 They think that they hold your future

Good thing my parents don't do that but I am shocked by what the other people's parents do.

Parents/Other Wise People: Son/Daughter, resilience is important.

You: Ok.

Parents: we want you to be a Surgeon, cos it earns a lot of money (MONEY IS FLIPPING IMPORTANT(jk))

You: *Never gives up not being a tennis player* But I want to be a Tennis Player.
*And you are good at it. Everybody who watches you think that you are born for tennis.*


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

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

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

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.

I decided to go to the chip shop close to my school because I was hungry and when I get home, my mom says your grounded just because I wanted some food.


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

15 They restrict my freedom

I had a friend, his parents made him work a lot. He had very good grades and he never had any missing work, I really wanted to be like him, but then I discovered that his parents were very strict and wanted him to work and work a lot, because when he was a kid, he was lazy and had lot of missing assignments at school. His parents gave him more studies and he couldn't do anything else : he couldn't play, he couldn't watch TV, he only got to go outside for like an hour, he couldn't even entertain himself during the week-ends... even when he finished all his work, his parents would restrict him from having fun and tell him to study for upcoming tests. He was starting to get anxious and started a depression, he even became mentally unstable and he was starting to act crazy (talking to himself, drawing disturbing pictures and even locking himself in the basement with the lights off...) One time he had enough and he confronted his parents and he said that If he couldn't enjoy life, he would ...more

I'm 15. My parent's rules:
No doors closed
8.30pm lights out
20 minutes of screen time on a weekday
30 minutes of screen time on a weekend
They have to check my naked body before every shower
No phone
No sleepovers on school nights (even if the person is from my school)
No telling my sister to get out of my room

My dad doesn't allow me to have any social media, doesn't allow my friends to come over, doesn't allow me to pick my clothes, doesn't allow me to have sleepovers, doesn't allow me to stay after school, he doesn't allow me to do anything!

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

16 They take your things regardless of your permission.

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

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

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

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.

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.

This is just stupid. Who would do this to their kids?!

"Son, get $20! I need to pay the cleaning lady! "

"Pay it yourself! "


I cannot tell you how many times my mum has done this. Today, I found out she had stolen my dry shampoo that I got for Christmas and had given it to my gran instead. I asked her why she didn't but my gran her own and she said she wasn't passing a shop. Who cares if you weren't passing a shop. You don't take my things then when. Need them the most tell me you've given them away without asking me or telling me first!

17 They demand constant control over your electronics

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

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

I'm 10 and about a month ago I was caught using discord. Dad was like, "What's discord?" I'm like it's website where you chat I've only been talking to my friends." Then I was grounded from electronics. :(

My mom really doesn't take my devices a whole lot but my dad will find the DUMBEST reasons to take em stuff that don't have anything to do with electronics like not doing well in school before school closed down it was really hard for me to concentrate on school work even in the school building he would yell at me and take my tablet and iPad for that when he knows I can't focus that well just to give them back two hours later 😑

18 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.

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.

When ever me and my dad would be talking about something and he said something that I prove him wrong on he knows I'm right but denies it and then gets mad and tells me to go to my room when he knows I'm right

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

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!

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

Mom: Why would you ever say something like that?
Me: Because...
Mom: Anyway, Jack (my Dad) how was work? (or something random)

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! "

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

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.

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"

What's the point about how long you've lived on Planet Earth (no offense NASA)

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.

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

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

22 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

23 They hate cell phones

Yesterday we were in the car going somewhere and I was bored so I was reading on my phone. And my parents made me put it away and complained that I’m on my phone too much and don’t interact with them. And they said maybe they should throw away my phone and give me a flip phone instead, so I’ll interact more. And I protested against them and they said they could do what they want just because they pay my bills. Seriously! Why would you give me something and then steal it from me and throw it away? And it’s a sin when I have fun? WOW. NICE LOGIC. You’re probably jealous that YOU didn’t have these things when YOU were are age! News flash: THIS IS THE 21ST CENTURY! DON’T DISLIKE US KIDS USING PHONES JUST BECAUSE you DIDN’T HAVE IT AT our AGE.

Don't listen to them! They're just jealous because they didn't have them when they were your age!

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

My parents always take my phone away from me for stupid reasons

They take mine away for practically no reason at all a heck lot. I know how you feel. I wish they didn't have to control everything about OUR lives.

24 They see only negative things inside you

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

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

My dad never sees anything good in me. He thinks I'm stupid, brainless, annoying, ugly, useless, and he thinks I won't make it through life.

YESS! It's obviously impossible for my mother to see any good in me. All she sees in me is a rotten spoiled selfish kid when I serve for my church, turn in my assignments and do my best, pass all my classes, give to the homeless and less fortunate. My mom always yell at me FOR the smallest things I do wrong. Like if I don't here her she says : (my name) GET DOWN HERE! HOW DARE YOU NOT DO WHAT I ASKED YOU TO DO THAT AN HOUR AGO! (When it's only been 10 mins and when I tell her she goes all I'm RIGHT AND you're WRONG) she points out every flaw about me to my dad, friends and family and it lowers my self esteem so bad. :'(

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 :(

25 Overprotective

Uh...YES! God, I'm not allowed to have sleepovers! Here's what I say: Oh, right, tell me more about the dangerous beast that's going to get me over there. Seriously, I'm the only kid in my grade who can't go to sleepovers. And when my friends are hanging out somewhere my mom claims that she "has" to be with me. I'm barely even allowed to do anything online. Only a few things. Its not like I'm going to yell out all of my personal information. It's so, so, SO, annoying.

My mom doesn't let me ride my bike around the neighborhood when one it's not that big and two it's full of old people and dogs no one's gonna snatch me up they can't even catch me and plus most of the people in that neighbor hood are really nice for most of my school life my dad told me I'm not allowed to talk to boys when all the boys up into fifth grade are immature slobs and I'm wouldn't like them anyway because it's weird

My dad is super overprotective of me. If I'm texting my friend, he will ask about it, if I want to go to a friend's house, who are their parents, do they live close, are they nice, text me to tell me your okay, like are you kidding me? He's way too overprotective of me.

I have VERY overprotective parents and it's annoying. I am literally not allowed to go outside, like at all, even if I am just walking across the street. It's not that my neighborhood is particularly dangerous. This is dumb.
