Worst Types of Parents

We all know who they are.

Your parents may have brought you into this world, but that does not mean they won't make it a living hell. This is the Bottom Ten Types of Parents.

The Top Ten Worst Types of Parents

1 The abusive and the lazy one

Why is this not number 1? The number 1 Things is just annoying but this kind is just horrible! - DrayTopTens

So your parents fight a lot. One of them begins taking it out too much on you whilst the other sits back and enjoys the new episode of EastEnders. Not exactly the greatest childhood.

Often, parents want their kids to be independent, which is great, but there is an extreme of being a "Lazy" parent, and not supervising their children to any extent.

My mom will mentally amd emotionally abuse me and take it to the extreme she will say that I'm completely worthless over school homework

2 The "I'm always right!" kind

This list was made by a spoiled brat. Sure, this kind of parents can be annoying. However, let's not forget that some parents abuse their children in so many horrible ways. Parents who think they're always right or who like to take their kids to the park aren't necessarily bad.

Your arguing with your parents because you said what they didn't want to hear. You prove your point with outstanding evidence, but your parents say "I'm your mother/father, so I'm always right." Don't you jugs hate that?

When you want to know why you can't do something, and they make stupid answers like "because" and "because I said so". Especially for older kids. If you aren't gonna let us do or have something, you have to have a decent reason.

My stepmother pulls this all the time. She even took it to the extreme once and told me that "if I didn't agree with her, then I should just leave and run away." These parents don't make your life a living hell. They make it worse.

The worst thing about these parents is that they make far more mistakes and learn nothing from them then those that do. If they say the are always, almost all the time they are wrong

3 The protective kind

Your friends have an Xbox One with Titanfall and Call of Duty. What do you have? A Wii with Wii Party and Sims Creator because your parents think "that gun games were designed by Satan" or "your too young to hear swear words" though they cuss every second your around.

Me: can I get the mail?
Mom: No! You will get run over by a car!

Always with the protection?! Why not the stupid kind?!? - Zindondiddlybop

Protection is for the weak

4 The active parents that drag you to the nearest park

To be honest this isn't really something to complain about

My dad likes to do tai chi and he forces me to do it with him. It's boring.

Say, your playing Call of Duty or Grand Theft Auto V, and your mum has to go do outdoor work. What does she do? Drag you to a five hour job whilst you could have rocketed up your character and game progress.

Yeah, this ain't to bad
Unless u enjoy wasting your life on video games

5 Manipulative parents

Imagine just sitting in your room, minding your own business, when they ask if you wanna go outside.
You say no, then they start to complain. When you say no again, they start yelling at you. - Excited

They force you to do stuff that you don't want to do. My mom forced me on the Small World ride at both Disney Parks in CA and FL and my parents forced me to go to this Chinese Lantern festival that's near my house.

No is no, mom.

6 The religious fundamentalists

Yes. I'm glad I'm Christian thanks to my mom, but Christian music sucks and she forces me to listen to it. I have to turn off my Who or Judas Priest and listen to an hour of stupid Christian pop

Buddhism runs in my family (we're Asian) but my cousins, sister and I are atheist but we still have to pray because if we don't our parents will be mad at us (especially my mom)

I feel like I learn lessons I already learned and just there

Yep, just yep.
Those ones that FORCE you to be some catholic or something. I was once forced to go to a church, just sitting in one seat listening to horrible "Jesus music" for 3 hours. When I thought it was over, some idiot came in to continue it. - Excited

7 The "Veggie Royals"

Fruits and veggies are good for you! I think you should be lucky that you guys eat fruits and veggies because you guys will live longer lives.I'm unlucky myself because my parents always give me junk food and I want fruits and veggies.

I agree, except for me, they want me to have so much meat and not vegetables. The meat they make is often horrible sloppy messy crap that was probably in the fridge for ages. - Excited

This is kinda what my parents are like

My parents are Asian and they think that eating too much meat will make you fat

8 The stupid kind

Imagine your 25 years old and a technician, living far away from your parents. They call you up one day and ask you to fix their appliance (for this, we'll say microwave). You drive 15 miles to their house to fix it, only to realise the didn't plug it in... Really?

Yea, I agree

My dad calls himself "stupid" because he doesn't know how to use an Amazon fire T.V. stick

9 The sociopaths

This is my mom...she blames almost everything on me and she would tell me negative stuff like “you are a disgrace” :(

10 Parents who blame the eldest child

My mom and dad blames me for everything because I am the oldest. "Your sister is young and you need to take responsibility sometimes..." I am the most responsible than any of then, PSHHH I am the most Mature!

It's so unfair! I am starting to think the rule Respect your Elder is a good rule.

My mom blames my sister gor eating all the food really its both of us - Ihateschool

Exactly! I know how you feel

The Contenders

11 The ones that always get in your business

Like can they stop?

That's my dad

12 The obliviously abusive mom
13 The confusing kind

To make it short, they tell you to do something, then tell you to stop doing it.


This is my mom. So she tells me that it’s OK to enjoy dessert in moderation during parties, so at 1 party, I enjoyed dessert and then at another party I enjoyed dessert again and then she was like “you shouldn’t eat so much dessert”.


14 The Ones that Constantly Find Fault in Everything that You Do

I was at a piano competition once. On the previous ones I won a statuette and a medal, my parents were proud but it wore off after a few hours. Back to topic, the most recent one as of 27/04/2019. I didn't win anything,and my parents yelled for hours on end before we even got home. I asked my dad why he was being so critical and negative and his reply was "I'm giving you motivation." Yeah, right. His "motivation" actually did anything BUT motivate me. In fact, it even made my secret self-loathing even more extreme and made me question why I even exist if I'll be reprimanded whatever I do. GOSH, I CAME IN A GOOD PLACE IN BOTH OF MY PREVIOUS ONES! WHY CAN'T YOU APPRECIATE THAT, GREGORY? (Gregory is my dad's name) This is one of the vigintillion reasons why I resent my father, and I'm super glad to get that off my chest. Rant over (for now).

Whenever I do something she yells at me but when my sister does it she says good job to her

My mom will reprimand me for ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. I swear that get reprimanded AT LEAST 9000x PER WEEK.

15 The "sex maniacs"

Your about 5, okay? You've had a nightmare and want to sleep in mummy's bed. You see the door is open and hear noises from the room. You check what's happening in there to see a heated moment between them. Yep, childhood ruined.

I don't know anyone with these parents.

16 The Nudists

Their is nothing wrong with nudists

17 Parents Who Constantly Nag About Everything

Puts me in a bad mood. Tired of hearing constant negativity...

18 The adventurous type

Sounds nice, right? Well, say you just got out of hospital from spraining your elbow. Your parents feel sympathy and let you relax for a month. Though it still hurts after that, they force you to go rock climbing with them. To be honest, that actually qualifies as being stupid and blind at other peoples misfortune.

I am extremely afraid of heights.

19 The ones who don't know when to let go

I know! Like, shaming kids and keeping a record of all their wrongdoings is not a good thing to do. - Mii24

For example when you did something wrong and to think that the would forget. Wrong the well always bring it back up even if they do not comply with what is happening.

YES my parents ALWAYS do this and it's really annoying! >:(

20 Ones that condescend you
21 The emotionless
22 The "you're to young for a phone" type

Honestly, as a 13-year-old, I really have no use or desire for a phone. Until I get into High School, at least. Everything is so small! Like how do you tap anything? -_- I am confused - Juniper

I am twelve and I still don't have a phone!

I didn't get my first phone until I was about 18 or 19.

23 The one that yells at you for a small mistake

That's mine! Once I got yelled at for eating snacks!

24 The ones that restrict your freedom

Same if your parents are not like bullies, your lucky.

That's my mom.

Me: can I go to the dollar store that's across the street from home?
Mom: no
me (when I was 18): can I go to NYC for a school trip with my chorus class?
Mom: no
Me: can I walk to McDonald's?
Mom: no

EVEY SINGLE TIME! And I'm 26! Very annoying! >:(

25 The ones who claim their generation is the greatest.

This is extremely annoying. I feel though when I have kids I will be telling them things like how I used my legs for getting around as a kid

No. Your generation is living the simple, old fashioned, and immigrant life. We live the American way with education, entertainment, and electronics. Our generation is WAY better than yours.

In certain ways any generation can be considered better than the others. They're not better or worse, they're different. - Juniper

26 The Ones that Scream Like a Psycho Whenever They Get Furious with You

Today my dad not only went psycho and yelled at me, he also threw a temper tantrum fit for a toddler...all because I collected several FREE brochures from my local library! >:(

On Christmas Day 2016 my dad yelled at me because my sister claimed that I stole a blanket when it was really my cousin and when I told him the truth he thought that I was lying and yesterday my mom screamed at me because my homework was frustrating me.

27 The Entitled Kind

This is my mom. If I don't do stuff exactly her way, she gets really mad at me.

28 The “high Expectations Asian Parents” Kind

I’m Asian and my mom got mad at me over an 89% (a B+) and told me that I wasn’t studying enough.

29 The overprotective kind

My mom does this quite often. For example I'm 26 and my mom won't let me use the stove to cook my own food because she thinks that I'll burn the house down or burn myself from it.

I'm 26 and my mom will not allow me to go places unsupervised :(

No playing in the rain or you’ll get sick.
No violent video games.
No biking with your helmets, knee pads, arm pads, shoulder pads...
No running in the house.
No devices because you’ll go blind.
I admit that I’ve searched online for how to successfully sneak out your bedroom window once or twice...

30 The Extreme Cheapskates/Frugal Ones

I'm 9, And my dad won't let me buy anything over the price of $1 at Walmart. - mcdonalds_sucks

My parents are Asian and they are obsessed with saving money. They wouldn't get me stuff cause it's "too expensive", even if it's just for my birthday or Christmas!

31 The Alcoholic

Alcoholic dad: Did you get some beer for me on the way home from school?
Kid: No, Dad.

An alcoholic parent can really ruin your relationship with them... imagine the sight of your drunk mother passed out on the floor with a busted lip and having to clean up her blood and spilled whiskey... but then it’s hopeless because she continues to drink the very next day like it’s no big deal.

32 The "back in my day"

Me: ARRRGH my iPad can't connect to the internet!
Dad: You know, back in my day, we DON'T EVEN HAVE iPads.


33 The No YouTube Type
34 The "because I said so" kind

Already made - Coreforce

35 The ones that embarrass you

My mom told my cousin an embarrassing childhood story about me in public once and my dad constantly sings

36 The Hypocritical Kind

When my mom's friends were upset and venting to her, they started cursing in front of her and she let it slide, but when I'm upset and I curse in front of her, she cuts me ZERO slack! this is why I only curse when I'm away from her, because you can't win in an argument with her! and even when I turn into an adult she still wont take me seriously! fml

Not my parents, they have let me curse since I was 14, but my girlfriends parents tlell her not to curse but they do all the tie in front of her and don't let her watch ïnpporopriate"things and shges 17!

37 The ones that hit their children

Asian parents in a nutshell

38 The toxic kind

My parents are like that sometimes

These parents are the worst, they scream like a psycho when they get mad at you, they overreact too much, they make really really dumb rules, they are overprotective, they’re too strict, they “assault” you when they get mad, etc... these parents should get a taste of their own medicine.

39 The Gross Kind

My relatives are Asian and they are OBSESSED with vulgar humor. They like to talk about babies’ and toddlers’ pee, poop, diapers, butts, farts and private parts.

40 The creative kind

Sounds awesome? Wrong. We're talking about the INSANELY creative kind. They would usually do stuff like make art or draw nice pictures; but whenever you went to school, jam and fish sandwiches, chocolate pesto pasta, asparagus and strawberry milkshake. Why do they wonder why your always coming home from the nurses office?

41 The self-righteous type

Imagine where your parent/s think they're opinion is always right even when it's just wrong and expects you to believe her and over all just the adult version of a brat.

42 The ones that don't know what fun means

My parents think that the way I have fun (eg. pressing buttons on slot machines at the casinos and riding coin operated horses) is immature

43 The "No Facebook" type

My relatives are all more popular than me because they all have Facebook. I want to be popular, too, but every time I beg for a Facebook my mom ALWAYS says no :(

44 The “No Mature Stuff” Kind

I’m 26 and my mom doesn’t allow me to watch shows like “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy” and once I watched “Showgirls” (1995) and my mom was like “you can’t watch that it’s too inappropriate”

45 The boring/lazy kind

My parents would rather stay home and watch T.V. instead of going on vacation

46 The cultural kind

For example my parents are Asian and when I was little they would force me to take those vile-tasting Chinese herbal medicine. GROSS!

47 The one that constantly judges you over your appearance

I’m Asian and if I gain EVEN 1 LB my mom will get mad at me, call me fat, and make me diet and exercise.

48 The ones that favor one kid over the other

My parents practice child favoritism and it's no doubt that I'm the unfavorite and my younger sister is the favorite :(

49 The Super Mega Health Conscious Kind

We're Asian. My parents (especially my mom) thinks that eating a small serving of dessert will give you instant diabetes, eating too much fruit will raise your sugar, all American food is unhealthy, bread has sugar, rice has sugar, this and that is unhealthy, etc...

In other words, they basically think that EVERY SINGLE food item that I eat is unhealthy in some way and puts my life/health at risk.

So what am I supposed to do, STARVE MYSELF FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE? >:(
