Parents can drive you crazy no matter how old you are! Whether you are 16 or 46, nobody likes to be lectured, nagged, or told what to do.
In the age of the helicopter parent, it may seem like your folks are hovering with an excessive interest in your life. In previous generations, kids were left to figure things out for themselves. Now parents are involved too much in their kids’ lives, telling them who to hang out with, what clubs to join, and which university to attend.
Sometimes it seems like you can’t win with your parents no matter what you do. They complain about what you don’t do, and then when you do it, they complain about the way you did it.
Of course, your parents love and worry about you, which is why they display these annoying behaviours.
The next time your mom or dad give you a lecture or a hard time, try some of these funny comebacks. Say them in a joking way so you don’t get yourself in too much trouble!
