First of all, let’s keep this in mind, parents are great! They do everything for us, and they’re also the reason why we’re here, so that’s pretty important too. But there can be those types of parents that are pretty annoying or do things that make no sense at all. Here’s a few!

Have your parents ever been a little too protective?

YES! I remember going to a friend’s house, then about an hour later I had a bombardment of texts, missed calls, voicemails, and any other sort of communication you can think of. Though this may be annoying when you’re trying to have a healthy friendship, remember that they do this because they care for you. No matter how over the top it goes!

Do your parents not understand technology?

Having your parents ask you how to use a MacBook, saying how a PlayStation and an Xbox are the same, and the dreaded: 'where’s the K button on a keyboard?' These are only a few of many examples that would anger a teen who holds technology dear to themselves, which is many of us. But our parents do many things for us, so the least we could do is help them out a bit with their technology problems.

Have your parents ever tried to be cool?

This is probably the most embarrassing one of them all. I have nightmares about my parents trying to use text language or trying to wear clothes that we normally wear. But the worst of them all is when your parents use social media apps like Snapchat and use them in the wrong way or overuse them.

Can you be friends with your parents?

Ultimately, your parents should be your best friends. Even though they might get on your nerves or embarrass you, they love you with all their heart and you should too. So, go out of your way and do something nice for them.
