Ten Most Annoying Things About Parents

The Contenders: Page 7

121 They blame everything on you even when it's their fault

My mom was drunk all the time and was angry at me because she had no job. because I was just in her life she could be angry at me
for it - Getovait

122 Child favoritism

This might be true (only if u belive it) well this is what I think and has been seeing through out my whole life as being the youngest daughter I think that moms are more caring and more loving when it comes to their sons and dads are more caring and loving about their daughters... Everyone in my family says that and yes both of the parents do care about each child but they have different feelings for each genders and it really hurted me but I don't care no more ad I am not trying to say oh your mom doesn't love you or your dad doesn't love you this is what I have seen through my life but just so u know your mom is really your bestfriend and your dad will always be there for u (i love them both) it's so annoying though like seeig your mom care about your brothers 😑😑😑😑

123 When you are serious, they laugh like it's a joke

I have to avoid my dad getting overweight by making him need at least a little bit of sweet treats like 2-3 cookies, 1 pastry of pop tarts, 1-2 pieces of candy, and a small bowl or cup of ice cream a day, but he doesn't care. My mom is getting sick of it. I say something important, he laughs like I'm a joke. I don't tell jokes to my parents.

I try to tell my mom something 100% serious and she thinks that I'm trying to be funny then I try being funny and she thinks that I am being serious

, YESSS! I tell my grandpa I'm being serious, he laughs like I just said a really big joke. But when he tells me to be serious and I'm not or I giggle slightly from thinking about something funny, he raises his voice at me. - XxDJPartyGirl1034xX

It always happens to kids my age and younger

124 When you explain to them something, they understand it completely wrong

It is so annoying. I tried to tell them how to change their phone password and it took them 20 minutes to get to the settings app.

Aka They don't understand it. Because they are stupid

125 When they are on their phone all day and ignore you

If I interrupt my Mom while she's texting or on Facebook, ignores me. If I do it again she turns around and full out freaks. Yells and swears!

It isn't fair and they always jump to conclusions and always think you have a temper issue even when you are just trying to be normal.

Same but my parents are always using their computers. To be fair, most (not all) is for work.

My parents always call and text messages around 85% of the time.

126 They think someone you hate is your friend

So, I had a play date and my mom forced me to invite my worst enemy just because his mom was her friend. While the play date is happening, I'm trying to have a tea party and he comes and ruins everything with his big fat mouth.

My mom always talks to the parents of the people I don't like, and tells me I should be more open when I tell her I don't want to talk to them

TOTALLY! Mom forced me to go out on a date with my worst enemy.

My mom thinks my ex-friend a.k.a. Big Liar/Dream Stopper/ Soul Crusher / Happiness Buster who ditched me, is still my friend and that I ditched HER.

128 They're liberal

YES! I hate that since I'm a Republican!

Yes...It's like they can dO anything...for instance: - If you break china/or a glass bowl...you are a dead person...the argument is going to end up with the sentence "you are not responsible "
And if my mom breaks a bowl...excuse me...was there a bowl in this kitchen..no of course not...no one gets to even know about it..after all there's no one who would scold them..
When I use phone for a while...mom almost tries to kill me and tell me to study right NOW!...
And when she uses and I tell her she is using the phone for a very long time(yes she does)...you know what the reply is:- "I don't have any exams..okay..It's you who has to study..."

129 They insult you, then when they realize you don't like yourself they go "oh my god why do you not like yourself?? You're beautiful you're amazing you're smart you're the complete opposite of all the insults I called you"

My mother likes playing the so called "word game" where she says words that have the same meaning of insult and words that don't she says them in a way where they are to be used as an insult and she does this so when she is accused she can say that she didn't say that word but she used words that have the same meaning to it and it makes me feel really stupid,lazy,and fat and I hate it

130 Getting yelled at for everything

I told my mom that I wished to know the schedule for the next day, so when she had planned it out could she possibly let me know? She began to shout at me about how I was being disrespectful and overstepping my boundaries, not to mention I just had to go with the flow because she is my mom and I have to listen

My parents yelled at me because I had friends over, and we went outside. Well my dad thought we weren't going to clean up our pillows and things, so he did it. Later, when we come inside, he yells at me for making him do the work.

I get yelled at for virtually everything! Even if I just say one single sentence, my parents yell at me! - Devilking190

132 When they act hypocritical

When my mom gets mad at somebody, it's perfectly alright for her to yell and scream all she wants. But when I do the same exact thing, she calls me a 2 YEAR OLD. When she says that, I just wish she'd say she wishes my tombstone will be destroyed, honestly. Oh, and let's not forget when parents yell at kids for pronouncing words wrong, when they do as well.

If I make a mistake she yells at us and looks like she wants to murder us. But if she does the exact same thing, it's completely different. She'll just shrug her shoulders, brush it off and act like it's nothing. For example, when she calls me on my mobile and if I don't answer, she gets really mad. But if I call her and she doesn't answer, she just say "ok" and that's it! Sometimes even, she'll turn it back on us and try to blame us for the reason she wouldn't answer her phone. Imagine putting up with that everyday!

While I love my parents and this isn't something I'd accuse them of, something that bothers me about some parents is that they'll use profanity around their kids like it's nothing, but then yell at their kid for using a word like "stupid."

I've seen this one a lot on the list...

133 They pick stupid ugly clothes and make you wear them

Me: *come downstairs wearing cute shirt*
Mom:Girl go change that shirt it's small!
Me:*trudges back upstairs to room*
Mom:*burst into my room* You are wearing THIS shirt today -it's an ugly lime green shirt-
Me: But I was gonna put on this shirt! *it's a cute light purple shirt-
Me:-grumble grumble...-

Yes yes yes! My mom picked out this really long greenish skirt the colour of sick and then, later, when I never wore it, she said that I TOLD her to buy it! Can you believe that? I only wear short skirts. That are NOT the colour of sick.

Mom, do you know how a tomboy feels like if you force her to wear a dress with girly flower patterns, a pair of girly shoes, and a bucket of make up? Well, if you don't know, then imagine someone being tortured. Yes, that's how I feel like whenever you force me to do all that - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

I hate when they do that my mom pick stuff I hate

134 When they say you're just going through a phase

I skateboarded for 2 years. I practiced at least 4 times a week every week. My mom bought me a revive skateboard for Christmas and the next Christmas I got a ton of skateboard parts. The only thing a could do on a skateboard was Ollie and backside 180 after TWO YEARS. Now I Bmx I started FOUR months ago I can feeble, smith, double peg, 180, footjam, motowhip, and some other. Now this Christmas I ask for some parts and a new frame and she says, is this gonna be like skateboarding do it for a few months and give up on it! I'm not gonna waste money on something your not going to use! Your just going through another faze!

My mother calls me name when I'm being unfriendly according to her

They say your'e just going through a phase but they don't know you in 20 years either so they don't actually know if it's a phase or not.

So truthful when I was 6 I started hating pink and all things girly but mom just said it was a phase but guess what I AM 10 NOW AND I AM WEARING JEANS, THREE YR OLD CONVERSES AND AN OVERSIZED T SHIRT WITH MY SKATEBOARD RIGHT BESIDE ME. TAKE THAT ONE MOM

135 They won't let you watch shows that you want to watch because they think they're only for "grown-ups"

I really hate this ESPECIALLY when they have already told you about the birds and the bees and they think ITS BAD FOR YOU? Like seriously half of the people at school watch some of these and my parents complain saying: OH BUT YOUR MY KID NOT THEIRS
I really don't care I've watched the Maze Runner 2 and it showed zombies WAS I OFFENDED? NO.
Seriously if I wasn't their child I'd probably be watching what I really want to watch but NOOO my parents only allow me to watch the weather channel, and Disney Channel. half of my school watches the walking dead I'VE SEEN PREVIEWS ITS NOT THAT BAD TRUST ME.

They say I can't HANDLE it. The reason is, they limit me so that I can't even build up a tolerance

I wasn't allowed to watch G rated movies until 18 - BorisRule

I wasn't allowed to watch PG movies until I was 10

136 They always notice the one thing you forgot to do.

YES! I do most of my dishes MOST OF THE TIME and the one time I might forget in the week I get yell at or scolded. Really you guys? "Oh looks like the dishes are piling up." Well maybe don't use 20 dishes each.

I was sick one day from school and my mom wanted me to do like every chore in the house because I was home and missing school when I had other things fro school I should have been doing

137 When you are hurt/sick, they don't care and think that you are perfect

I once felt like I was gonna throw up one morning. I told my grandpa, he tells me his favourite words... "Oh your fine, your going 2 school" So, I go to school feeling like puking because it's "important". He sometimes lets me stay home. - XxDJPartyGirl1034xX

I think I would throw up and guess What Dad said to me? Go up the stairs and learn! What I would is I would go to him and throw up on him. TAKE THAT! - MinecraftHater

Pretty much everyone in my life knew I was asthmatic before my parents did. Ask them to get me an inhaler and they go all like "You'll be fine. It'll go away"

"Please can I stay home today? I have a 104 degree fever! "
"Nah you're fine"
"I'll do all the work horribly"
"Nah you're fine"
Eventually it just ends up with her getting mad and yelling 'EITHER THE HOSPITAL OR SCHOOL'

138 They think you can do everything alone because of your age

My Lord, NO! It's the complete opposite! "Mom, I'm twelve, I don't need you to come in my room every five minutes"

You think a 14 year old, unarmed with nothing but a kitchen knife, can take down a whole army if they decide to invade?

Just because I'm 11 that doesn't mean everything is easy and I don't need any help.

I am under constant surveillance, and I am 13.

139 They always smack your butt for fun

Dear god I thought I was the only one

My dad always smacks my ass randomly, AND HE DOES IT HARD! it hurts! I tell him stop it, he laughs like it's a big joke! He doesn't realize he's stronger than he thinks he is. - XxDJPartyGirl1034xX

Is that good or bad because my mom dose that all the time

140 They punish you for stupid reasons

My big sister always blames me for doing things like playing video games at night and other things, then I get confused why I am being yelled at.

This is so true this morning I got into trouble because I forgot 1 towel and because something didn't start when I didn't mess with it

I got punished for getting a fried chicken sandwich at Chick-Fil-A instead of grilled. - DoroExploro13

I got grounded for eating rice and chicken instead of eggplants. - njalabi63989
