Top Ten Worst Things to Hear from Your Parents


The Top Ten

1 You're adopted.

What's wrong with being adopted? I'm not, but still.. - keycha1n

Not sure what's so bad about this. Even though they didn't have you as a baby, they still chose to raise you. - Zach808

I wish no one was adopted unless they really needed too - jmepa1234

I feel sorry for people who are in a way, most of them never got to know their real parents. :( - LemonComputer

2 Because I said so

The classic "I'm a parent with no reasoning behind my argument but don't want to say I lost it". - keycha1n

That isn't a reason, it doesn't even count as an excuse. - Kaboom

I get this from my mom all the time, it seriously annoys me and it is the most cliche saying a parent can ever say to a child!

I mean, what’s the logic behind that? Just because you’re older and that automatically makes you king of the world?

3 Now don't be nervous...

The one statement that makes you more nervous. - Oliveleaf

This never helps at all. - Minecraftcrazy530

4 When I was your age...

When I was your age, my life was so much harder, so much more successful. Yeah, we are living in a different generation so stop whining about yours.

When you were my age, dinosaurs ruled the earth. I get it, Dad. - Zach808

This happens a lot... Especially my liar dad who thinks I'm still a child and thinks too much about my shyness

Mom:When I was your age!

Me:Blah Blah Blah I ALREADY KNOW!

5 I like your brother/sister better than you.

My parents try to tell me I'm equal to them, but it's clear who their favorites are. - Turkeyasylum

This is how my friend's parents are to her. Apparently they like her younger brother better than her. I've met her brother, and he's really annoying.

This is obvious. They don't even have to say anything...

Do they really say this? - LemonComputer

6 What are you doing?

My dad does this a lot. I'll be in my room on my laptop, on YouTube, listening to music. I'll have the volume turned up high, which 20 is a good pitch for volume on my laptop. All of a sudden, my dad will be yelling for me, and I can't hear him. He will walk upstairs to my room, and knock on my door. I shut everything down on the internet, and when he comes in finally, he says, "What are you doing? ". "Why do you care? You know I do the same things all the time! " (I wouldn't actually say that.) You get it? It's annoying. All parents try to do on this one is make you stop what you're doing, and tell them what you are doing. Stupid.

Breathing of course. Why do you wanna know so bad? It's none of your business! - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

I ALWAYS here this from my mom when I'm on my laptop. It's starting to get annoying.

My dad constantly stares at my computer screen

7 I am getting a divorce!

Well this is almost happened more than twice... - XxKrayziexX

It's worse when it happens to you

8 I looked at your computer history...

This is my one worst fear.. I cringe just thinking about it...oh, all those things I've looked and she would find out about this site. If my mum ever says this to me, I would run out of the house at full speed. - Catlover2004

YES there is a story behind this.

It's not really something my parents would say... More like my older brother. He's VERY overprotective over me... Like, I'm only 3 years younger than him!

You wont find anything exept anime

9 You have a problem.

If they say the word "mental" before the word "problem", then that's not good at all...

Nice one nikbrusk - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

10 Shut up!

My mum says this to me everyday! I used to love my mum, but now I hate her for this! She's rude and mean to me, which is disgraceful! I want to punch my mum HARD for doing this to me! I wish she wasn't too mean!

That is just rude!

I remember my dad saying that to me 3 years ago. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

My parents say this to me whenever they get the chance, and I'm sick of it. - ItsPisces

Why care. It is not like the world would blow up if you didn't. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

13 We’re moving

The only time I moved was from a mobile home to a new house right next to the mobile home so I've lived on my street (actually dirt road I'm from Arkansas) all my life. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

I'm actually really happy when my parents tell me we're moving. I lived in NYC until I was 11 and then we moved to Florida and in a few months we're moving to Virginia. YAY! My cousin who is also sixteen lives there with her mother and me and my family are (it's a big-ish house) moving in with them! - Swiftdawn

15 Rock and roll is the devil's music. Listen to Miley Cyrus instead

Not always. Skillet is Christian and they are heavy metal. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

The rock and roll theme is to do with the 50s nothing to do with the devil duh

16 Who are you texting?

A human - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

17 You're too young

What? I'm sixteen! "Are you sure? You really want to? " Dad, I say, "What are you talking to mom about? " Dad shakes his head, "your to young to understand."
I know more words than you! What does Abrasion mean? Exactly. SO YEAH, I CAN UNDERSTAND - Swiftdawn

18 He/she is young, that's why

My parents say this all the time and it's very annoying!

Me: how come I my cousins never get in trouble when they do bad stuff but I always do even if I didn't even do anything?
Parents: cause they're young
Me: why do I have to do chores but my sister doesn't? (she's 19 by the way)
Parents: cause she's young

Parents ussauly say this or something related to this when you did something wrong and talk to you about it and you say "They do that it to" or something realted to that like "but they do it and they don't get in trouble" and they respond "He/She is young that why" just because they are like 4 years old

"S/he's younger thsn you" is the most idiotic reason to defend a youger sibling - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX
