As Nick Twisp said, "reasoning with parents is like spelunking in the sewer: it's dark, scary, and almost always results in a lot of sh*t coming down on your head".

Parents, how do you deal with them?


RUNNN AWAYYY!!!!



Nah just kidding. I mean, it's an atrocious financial decision if you're gonna be alone, for one. My younger sister just moved out (yes, younger!), and for what? Now she's giving 33% of her income to a stranger who could probably buy two houses cash with just her money in 25 years. Like, what the hell. And she continually comes here at least once a week just to hang out, because she's literally alone, and barely 20 miles away.

Always deciding how I should live my life.. I'm exhausted.


They tell me what car I should drive
They tell me where I should live
They tell how I should go to work, what I should do at work...


I feel really exhausted and that I have no will of my own


Your 26, you should already know how to deal with them

On a slightly more serious note, your parents aren't around forever so if you want to neglect them it will only weigh on your own conscience in the future. In hindsight I really should have done a lot more for mine, and now that one of them isn't around anymore it kills me to think what I could/should have done. Yes your life is yours to live but at the end of the day you only have two genetic parents in this life, got to show them respect.

Parent logic: My house, my rules.

Since you are still living with your parents, you should respect their authority. You should be grateful that they let you live with them. They could kick you out, you know. They're alive and with you, too. Many people don't have parents or never see them.

I respect my parents for the following reasons:
-They made me
-They give me food and water
-They let me live at home, rent free
-They are paying for my car, and etc.

One day, they won't be able to take care of themselves. One day, they'll be dead and gone.

HAHAHAHAHA ROFL

you must not be Asian. you are lucky you can choose how you live your life.


Well, if it matters, I am Asian. It's true that my parents use to push me to do all kinds of shit I didn't want to do. Used to. I rarely talk with them anymore. If you really value independence, and want to live your life your way, you have to be damn prepared for some major upheaval. I confronted my parents about what I wanted to do, and they chose to not respect my wishes. Now I have to make my own money, make my own food, take care of my own car, etc. So what? I consider that a good thing. I have no regrets.

You become a parent. That's how you learn how to deal with your own.

I love and respect both of my parents equally. We have a relationship where we can joke around and still be serious. I was raised to respect people, especially my parents. If you disrespect your parents, shame on you (there are exceptions and circumstances obviously).
