The Top Ten
Well I'm lucky I don't have overprotective parents. Plus they know I won't listen anyway. - Therandom
Why do you yell at me for being the correct maturity for my age? - Kaboom
I must be very unlucky to live in a home with overprotective parents.
This is true in my family...we're Asian... but I still insist calling them "Mom" and "Dad" instead
My sister got pregnant at the end of high school, so my parents are afraid that I will make the mistake of getting a girl pregnant. Also they won't let me hangout with my gay friends alone.
I find this weird, my mom won't let me be friends with a boy at all. And I'm not allowed to date until I am 22... But I don't care about the dating one honestly. But not being able to have friends of the opposite gender though... - cosmo
Or race, especially if you're Asian. Asian parents will FREAK if they see their daughter with a black boyfriend (or friend in general)
My dad will freak out if he see me flirting or calling a boy cute. I can't date in till I'm in college. - Arcxia
Fortunately not every millennial had overprotective parents because nothing on this list is what my parents would do to me.
Really? My mom is overprotective and she allows me to have friends.
2005-2009 - Sometimes Friends come over
2010-2017 - Friends come over to my house a lot
2018-now - No Friends at all! Just boring adults. 😡 - Ar0nT0pTeNz05
I wasn't allowed to make friends unless if they were in my class and my mom knew their mom.
Because of this, I lost so many friends.
me too :(
I do not need this. If you drop me off, I will arrive at my classroom. Also, you are CAUSING bullying by getting me accused of being a "Momma's Boy." - Kaboom
Kaboom wow that’s bull - Ar0nT0pTeNz05
My parents yelled at me for going to bed 5 seconds late 3 weeks after school ended. - Kaboom
No wonder life goes by so fast
People who are 26 that have their mom telling them what to do need a life.
I'm only allowed to watch certain ones. - cosmo
Dude, PG-13 is meant for these when are 13 or older. - BorisRule
Wow I feel sorry for you. - Arcxia
I HATE it when my mom talks for 20 minutes after school, and yells at me when I try to talk to my friends. - Kaboom
My mom constantly makes me wipe down my entire room all over again despite the fact that I already did it SEVERAL DAYS AGO!
My room was perfectly organized, and my mom reorganized into her proprietary, literally proprietary, system without explaining it to me, and I couldn't find anything. - Kaboom
I'm Asian. My mom is constantly weight-shaming me. She would constantly accuse me of eating too much and call me fat and tell me that I look like a lady that's about 4 months pregnant. I'm 26, 5'1", and I weigh a bit over 100 lbs.
How can a boy get pregnant? - TwilightKitsune
Boy's can get pregnant! - BorisRule
Who put this on?
My parents are overprotective. They actually FORCE me to do chores; they just don’t pay me for doing them because they want to save money (they’re Asian)
Yh I asked for ripped jeans, they bought me it, I wore it for a day, they yell at me for showing off so much skin( rips were only nears knees, medium sized) and told nvr to were it again in public...
My mom won’t let me wear tank tops
I don't see why this isn't number one, think about it.
Mom; [bargs into my room and hears my black metal even though she does not know it is black metal] “what the hell are you listening to Natalie? ”
Me; “metal music”
Mom; “you a devil worshipper now!? ”
Me; “get the hell out of my room please! ”
Mom; “OH MY SWEET JESUS CHRIST MY DAUGHTER IS A DEVIL WORSHIPPER! ” [slams the door behind her]
If you're an Asian kid under the age of like 5 and you pick something up off the floor your parents will FREAK OUT LIKE CRAZY
Not true! I don't copy video games in real life after playing them. After playing Roblox: Jailbreak, I never ran around robbing banks and shooting cops. After playing Halo and Call of Duty, I never shot or stabbed people. After playing Fortnite, I never ran around shooting people and dancing on them.
It's so dumb when adults think we'll become violent of playing video games with violence in it! They think we'll turn into big murderers or something if we play games like Grand Theft Auto or Call of Duty. It's stupid! They think that violent video games cause all these murders and school shootings. So by that logic, if I play Madden, will I become a professional NFL player then?
They think that you will copy them in real life
Wow have you tried to tell them that they're treating you like a baby. - Arcxia
My parents think that Youtube can cause computer viruses
I started watching YouTube videos when I was like 8 or 9, then my parents banned me from watching it until I was like 12 or 13. I am so glad now I don't have to deal with strict parenting rules since I'm 18. - reed99
Also whenever I watch YT videos my parents think I will turn into a psychopath and do crazy things.
When videos of babies and children come up on YouTube, my parents think that I’m either watching child pornography or that due to the videos popping up, people will think that they are child molesters/abusing children. what!
I love horror movies, but my mom doesn't allow me to watch anything that features murdering or killing because she thinks that I will copy them. SERIOUSLY?
Funny thing is that the Annabelle movies feature murdering/killing and I'm allowed to watch those.
(My dad calls me)
Dad: Come over here?
Dad: just come over here
Why I hat my parents is because they never actually helped when I asked them to, they just tell me what to do and when I ask y they say because I said so,which is trashy parenting!
Me:No what are you actually cooking?
Dad:Food that you eat
Me:What is it?
Me:WHAT THE HECK IS IT JUST TELL ME NOW!
Mom:Niamh come here!
Never mind sleepovers, my mom was so overprotective of me when I was little that I WASN'T EVEN ALLOWED TO HAVE PLAYDATES IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL!
I'm not even aloud to stay at friends houses after 9.. I also get made fun of at school because of this...
I'm about 16 years old, but feel like I'm about 12 or 13.
In my case, it’s a sibling. My mom is overprotective of me, but not my younger sister. I’m 26, and she’s 19. My mom allows her to cook on the stove unsupervised, hang out with friends, and go places unsupervised. Would she allow me to do any of that? NO WAY! >:(
Unlike OCD sufferers, they don’t constantly worry about it whenever they are out.
My family thinks that I will get diarrhea from eating too much fruit
For example my relatives are Asian and they always assume that eating more fruits is bad for your health and that you can get diabetes from the sugar in it
My parents clean the house nearly every day and they ALWAYS do it right before my cousins or any kids come over
My parents always clean the house
Me: guess what? I made a new friend named Alexa
Mom: Alexa? Where does she live? What are her parents’ jobs? How tall is she? What’s her race? What’s her sexuality?
For example if you’re Asian and you tell your parents that you have a friend they’ll ask you if they’re Asian or not
