Reasons Why Kids and Parents Don't Normally Get Along
The Top Ten
When I get home from school I want to just relax. But that's not on my parent's agenda. I have to go home, vaccume, clean my room, make my bed, sometimes clean my SISTER'S ROOM, and mow the lawn. And after all tat is finished, I have homework. By the time I can finally relax, I realize it's time for bed. - Alpha101
Yeah that is totally true!
I don’t have siblings...
My younger sister gets away with everything. She snitches on me all the time, and she never gets in trouble for it. But hen I snitched on her one time, my dad told me: "Don't be a snitch." It gets so annoying. - Alpha101
I know. So unfair, right? What is their problem? - PositronWildhawk
My mom is ridiculously overprotective
One day while we were in Wal-Mart my dad was paying his taxes. I told him I'm going to go halfway across the store to look at the CDs. My dad told me not to, because someone may take me away and I'd have to wait another thirty minutes until he is done. I'm in middle school for crying out loud! I can take care of my self! - Alpha101
They buy me kiddy stuffs when I don't want to and force me to use it or I'm scolded - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX
That's one of the things Ihatr about my life… - BlueTopazIceVanilla
My dad is OBSESSED with Country music. Country isn't that bad to me, but there are hundreds of genres better than it. I like Hard Rock/Heavy Metal. One day while I was on the computer I was listening to some Guns N Roses. My dad heard what I was listening to, and he told me to not listen to it again. That kind of makes sense. The members of Guns N' Roses weren't exactly great role models. But one day I was listening to SKILLET, A CHRISTIAN HARD ROCK BAND, and my dad told me to not listen to them either. It's my life, I can listen to the music I want to, as long as it's appropriate. I don't tell you that you can't listen to Country! - Alpha101
My mom is overprotective up to eleven. She won't allow me to get out of the house alone, not even to the dollar store that's right across the street from my house. I'm 26!
My dad won't let me spend any money until I raised $80 first, that way I will have money left over. If I just want to buy a pack of gum, I have to save $80. It's my money, I can spend it however I want! - Alpha101
I'll be in my room playing a video game, and he'll barge in without knocking and ask me how was school. I'd tell him good. He'd not budge. He'd tell me to tell him EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED! I'd tell him to get out, because I'm in the middle of something, and he'd yell at me. By the time I finish telling him, he leaves my room WITHOUT CLOSING THE DOOR! When I look back at my game, I'm dead. - Alpha101
Oh yes this is what annoys me the most. My mom literally asks EVERYTHING about my personal life, like "how's school today? " "how were your friends at school? " and bla bla bla. Gosh I'm in 7th grade I need my privacy!
Its annoying. It the questions get fun when you are in preshool or 1st grade, but it gets very annoying at 3rd grade. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
Then they blame it on ME
My parents get into so many fights... I just turn my music all the way up to drown it out. Then my dad grounds me for having my music all the way up. It's their fault. - Alpha101
I try to explain myself, but my parents don't care what I have to say because they don't want to realize that they are wrong.
This is very annoying. It's just their excuse when they have no comeback and they can't admit that you're right.
It's more like "You're being disrespectful" when it's simply not the case.
They never apologize, either
Whenever you try to explain that to them they ll gust deny it, and use their autority to hide it
Pretending they mean something
My mom always starts her opinions with “when I was a teenager...”. Do I have to be like YOU? And there’s the “If I did... my parents would kill me” I DON’T LIVE IN 1970’s SORRY BOUT THAT MOM! My every move irritates her.
