my dad is getting on my nerves - January 14th 2009, 11:30 PM

My dad is really getting on my nerves (get ready for rant).

He believes that his opinion is the only thing that's right, and everything else is wrong.
He's very closed minded and unwilling to accept different ways of thinking.

He thinks the book "Twilight" is devil worship, which makes him hate the stuff I'm into. He's very prejudice and believes that all goth people and objects are automaticly devil worship, I can't even dye my hair black because of that.

In his mind, he's perfect and everything he does is amazing and he never does anything wrong, and even when he makes a mistake, it's always somehow the other person's fault.

He gets mad at the stupidest things. He got mad at me and my sister because we didn't turn up the thermostat when we got home. He yelled at me because I took two seconds to long to some and eat.

He can be very inconsiderate. Example: my sister was waxing w/ my mother, and he passed by and laughed at my sister for being in pain by it. She yelled at him to stop and he lost it and blew up at her. My sister even apologized for it later and told him that he still shouldn't laugh and he told her that she still shouldn't yell at him, without even apologizing for it.

And finally, he's hardcore catholic and tries to force his views on me.

To sum it up, it really sucks and I'm really getting tired of him

hey robin.

Some parents are like that, and that one trait of some parents is that they think that they're right most of the time. You have to talk to him about it .. and tell him that you're your own individual In case he's too unopen to talk about it, you can show him signs that you dont want to be bothered. I'm sure that deep down inside, he really loves you.

Some people are like that... be patient, deal with it and eventually everything will get better. You have to make it known t him that what he's doing isnt good for any of you and that he has to stop or lessen the extent to which he's doing all this stuff...

in case there's anything, happy to help.


Those who have went through more pain than everyone else, and want to protect anyone and everyone they know and care for from that pain, are stronger than everyone.

we come, we help, we stick and never leave. pm me anytimeee!

Hi there Robin,

I think the best thing to do would be to ignore his comments and just tune it out when he's saying things you don't agree with. You can respect his opinion without agreeing with it.
I don't think it was nice of him to yell or laugh like he did, but I think this calls for some tuning out too. He sounds stressed out and as you said, you tried talking to him already.
I suggest you try talking to him again, though. Make sure it's at a time when he's calm. He should be able to hear what you think too.

All the best,
Nat.

If you can't stand him, maybe you can try to avoid him as much as possible. I don't know how he'll react to that though. Maybe try to ignore his opinions as well.

I try to avoid him but he always put himself in my face and it's kinda hard to zone out when he's yelling at you (he's very loud)


You're amazing just the way you are
