Top Ten Things Your Parents Do That You Don't Like

The Top Ten

1 Don't let you do things you want to do

Me:wants to play video games
Parents:u got b on report card no video game for u(I’m Asian)

My parents don't let me do ANYTHING I want to do.

2 Be over-protective

My mom takes this UP TO ELEVEN! For example:

-she thinks that all black people will beat you up
-she thinks that 1 bite of dessert will instantly give you diabetes
-she thinks that all dogs will bite
-she won't let me go on upside down rides (except for a few rare instances)
-she won't let me go on a school trip to NYC THAT WASN'T EVEN OVERNIGHT (we live 2 hrs away)
-she thinks that we don't know basic safety rules
-she thinks that I will break all fragile items
-she won't let me ride thrill rides alone
-she thinks that I'm too weak to carry items that are over 20 lbs
-she thinks that being outside for 1 second will lead to instant sunburn
-she won't let me get out of the house by myself
-she won't let me go to a store THAT'S LITERALLY ACROSS THE STREET FROM MY HOUSE alone
-she won't let me cook my own food


You don't need to listen to her anymore. You're a legal adult, she just wishes you're an eight year old again.

One time I wasn't allowed to watch a movie because it had people in it, even though it had nothing inappropriate.

I'm not allowed to do anything social online... So I guess voting on this list was against my parents' wishes.

My mom is Asian and she thinks that I will get instant diabetes if I eat just ONE TINY BITE of dessert...

3 Judge you

No one has the fighting me

That's my parents for you

My mom keeps saying I do everything wrong when i’m just doing it differently and it gets really annoying

4 Listen to old music

when my mom drives, it's hell cause we have to listen to j-rock bands which are now literally almost not making any music and I hate it cause it's always that oml. my mom is a diehard fan of the genre. send help.

My dad always listens to songs from 1960's-1990's and sometimes it"s good but sometimes it's annoying but at least he likes Electronic music.Sometimes he can listen to really bad pop or country songs but sometimes he listens to good pop songs-TheCoolGuy1

It's better to appreciate the classic, old music back then, rather than listening to modern music that's loud, brainwashing, dumb, etc...

That's quite arguable, many old songs are worse than modern music. Also, not all modern music is the pop stuff you hear on the radio.

What's so bad about the Beatles? I personally never listen to pop music on the radio, only classical and comedy shows.

5 Review your music

Apparently anything I like is automatically trash. I like Nicki Minaj when I talk about her my dad acts like she’s the worst thing to ever happen to this world. My parents, especially my dad think EVERYTHING I LIKE is trash

My parents are Asian and they think that only black people listen to rap and hip hop

Anything I like is apparently a risk of hypnosis, according to my dad

Especially if your parents think metal is the music of the devil.

6 Threaten you

Even when they helping you out. Do that chore you already did or I won't help at all damn it

7 Spank you

its painful boi

I got spanked well not by the parents but I just wanted to say it hurts painfully crying 😢 and moaning in severe pain for going in the woods when whoever was in charge screamed no shrilly and then they got very angry so hit/beat me

8 Sing to modern songs

They can’t even sing

I HATE IT when my parents sing -.-

My dad always changes the word “you” to “poo” and sings in public, it’s really embarrassing.

9 Yell
10 Pretend to understand you

Nobody seems to take me seriously because I am shy-ish and short. Everyone thinks I am all cute, small and innocent when I just want to be understood.

Don’t mess with short people when they’re angry, despite my petite physique I can flip furniture across the room if I am mad enough.

The Contenders

11 Force you to do things that you don't want to do

My parents not only forced me to ride It's a Small World at both Disneyland and Disney World, they also forced me to go to a boring Chinese lantern festival.

Yeah like SLEEP/NAP WHEN I'm NOT EVEN TIRED AND I JUST WANT TO HANG OUT WITH MY FRIENDS! Ugh it’s so annoying! You can't force someone to sleep and nap all the time! I’m old enough to decide for myself when I need sleep!

And sorry for rage but I needed to let that out.

12 Constantly remind you to do stuff
13 Not feel sympathy for you

Once my mom yelled at me in front of my relatives and made me cry in public and she refused to apologize to me even though she scared (and also embarrassed) me! >:(

14 Compare you to other kids

This is way to relatable

My parents are Asian and they do this ALL THE TIME!

15 Watch movies that you can't
16 Play on their iPad all day

Dad: don't play iPad all day it's bad for your eyes

(later takes iPad to bed with him)

17 Be lazy

My mom once said she had me and my siblings so she wouldn't have to do things.

In an area of our house there are 2 trash cans THAT ARE NOT EVEN 5 FEET AWAY FROM EACH OTHER and my parents choose to use the one that's closer to them.

18 Blame you for what your siblings did


They also blame me for what MY COUSINS did as well.

19 Expect you to apologize when you do something wrong but they refuse to apologize to you

Especially if you don't feel like apologizing...

What they did was wrong, too! >:(

LIKE BITCH U ain't ROYALTY! sure give me tons of mental abuse then expect me to deal with your bs outside the house hell no!

by the way when someone asks u a question/ the old bitch should have said yes or no then the question

20 Treat you like an immature person

Man I sure wish this was added sooner. My parents only see me as immature when I start showing it, yet if I'm mature (which is most of the time) I never get recognized by them. And then my mother spends her days at home playing on her iPhone and my father complains about literally everything else (who yells at the T.V., honestly).

My Mum accuses me for bring immature and swears at me for no reason. She even takes her anger out on me.

21 Ask about your period repeatedly

This isn't a bad thing, it's rather funny because I could totally relate to this! Every time I'm not feeling well, my mom would ask the same thing lol. I respect how she at least cares though, cuzz I've had really bad cramps before and she was always there for me

My mum does this when I am tired or not feeling well. Then she goes on about... umm Vajayjays and Puberty stuff IN PUBLIC and I tell her I feel awkward but she says "Nobody cares." UGH

My mom does this all the time

well thank gosh I'm a boy

22 Reprimand/criticize you for every little thing

I dropped something, she calls me clumsy.
I carry heavy objects, she thinks that I will injure myself. (object is only like 20 lbs)
I accidentally made my sister mad or cry, she screams at me like I've murdered someone.

Story of my life here.

I tease a little and she smacks me lightly. Still not cool

if they don't understand they get all pissy then I get pissy

23 Listen to modern pop music

My mom ruined Senorita, Moves Like Jagger, and Sorry Not Sorry for me. I am NOT showing her Taylor Swift unless she gets me her merch, takes me to one of her concerts or gets Taylor Swift to meet me in person.

My mum singing my favourite songs has ruined the songs for me.

Please don't tell me your parents listen to One Direction.

My mom likes What Makes You Beautiful by OneDirection and my dad likes PPAP. I HATE BOTH OF THOSE SONGS! >:(

24 Compare you to other kids that have higher grades than you

This is at an unreasonably low rank for what it means. Parents love to compare you to that one friend who has higher grades than you (let's call him Bob). However, if you do better on a test than Bob did, they will say, "Don't compare yourself to Bob. You should only compare yourself to those who are better than you."
In this case, you'd want to say, "Excuse me, but how many times have you said that Bob is better then me? He can't suddenly be worse than me just because he did poorly on a single test, right? According to you, mom, Bob is smarter, more talented, and more polite than me by far." However, you can't say anything because you know that your parents will find some ridiculous excuse to cover themselves up.

My mom is so annoying. She always like "How come your friend is in the top of the class? How come you're just average? You should learn how to be like her! " And I can't talk back because I have to RESPECT my parents(even when they barely respect me).

25 Ignore you

Even worse is the silent treatment. Once my dad got so mad at me that he refused to talk to me for several days despite the fact that I was trying to apologize.

Quite annoying, but I’ve gotten used to it.
