Okay another thing. Parents and money. Every Chinese typical parents basically forces their kids to be a doctor. But some of us know that the furthest we ever gonna get is a physician. I really get bothered by the vocabulary parents choose. If their kids tell them there is no way in hell they can be a doctor because they get nightmares about operating on people, being around dead people, and going around life/death situations as a way to make money. They should just accept it and then pick another career under doctor like children's physician, dentist, etc. It bothers me when my parents tell me to be a doctor persistently even though I said no a gazillion times.

Another thing. My mom expects me to take care of her when I make money. She expects that I make a gazillion dollars. I'm supposed to be her life insurance/retirement. I don't set any expectations for myself. I just hope after I pay the bills I still have money to play with, and some to save. I expected this when I was young, because all they talk to me is that I have to get money. And when I was young I personally hate money, well I was too young and my parents never took me shopping. I know that money is important, but I never see the whole point of getting a gazillion dollars. I realize that I would have to take care of my mom, because my parents are hopeless in their careers, they make enough but their jobs aren't really stable. My dad was one of the head of my family's business but when we moved everything changed.

So basically, my mom just puts too much expectations on me, although sometimes i know she cares about my future, which is currently bleak in her view, but in my view it is horrible but grand (for single guy). But in no way enough for her. I feel like I need to secure her future. I believe I can secure my own future because thats the only thing I've been aiming for.

well Im just ranting just like the topic says. but if anyone else needs to pent up some parent stress off their minds here's the place to go.

we know everyone loves their parents, but for those people who needs to pent about them please come here.

I personally find going to the gym and hitting something there extremely helpful.

parents can nag you a lot, but its only cuz they care. i love my parents no matter how much they nag me. sometimes i don't listen to them, but i usually learn from those mistakes of not listening...

I hate when parents worry about me. I miss school every now and then. and over the last five months I have 7 absences for first period. I missed only five periods for second. and I have no absences on fourth-seven period. Yet they cry and yell and feel that my future is bleak because I missed a few days off school. I get average grades, I mean I'm no genius. But I feel like I am one of the smarter people around. I'm sort of laid back and lazy and i sleep alot but that's a lot normal for kids right? I just turned 18 this year and my parents are just crazy about me having the bleakest future ever.

I don't have any problem with my mom or step dad, they're both great.
But my dad can get annoying once in awhile.

I love both of my parents. They help me and support me and my dreams and yeah they can nag, worry you to death, get on your nerves most of the time and be really strict but that's why they're called parents...Heck, your parents invest alot of time and money in you to make sure you're safe and healthy (maybe not now, because most of us are grown, but when we all were little).

I used to not understand these things when I was about 16 or 17. That's when I would get in arguments and would want to rebel but I understand now

Mm.. Yeah, step mom and dads are probably great, real parents get real worried when somethings not right though. And you feel like you owe more to step parents, somehow..
I feel bad for causing trouble but I feel like they worry too much and they need to relax. And I tell them that and they get even more angry.
Yeah, I realize that all the things they're doing is to make us be successful kids. They can't accept any troubles I make. I'm not doing drugs, I'm not dropping out of school, I'm not going out and vandalizing, I'm just not doing some of the things I should, like folding my clothes, always coming to school on time, studying at home.
I know I need regular routines to do these. But sometimes I just forget to do them. My mom can't nicely remind me to do it. They just glare at me and then lecture me and then slowly progress to scream at my face while I do it. And I tell them don't do it. I'll do it. and they don't listen to me and just make me feel bad and teach me nothing. I don't feel good when I do the things they tell me to do. I hate it.
Parents should take a parenting course and a psychology course. Seriously takes a lot to raise a kid right,
