Angry I'm sorry I'm not perfect, Dad. - November 14th 2010, 03:20 PM


Every fucking day. He asks me to do dishes, and I do it. Later, he yells at me for doing a "half-assed" job.
He asked me to clean my room, and I FINISHED. Then, he assumes I'm lying and won't give me back my iTouch or let me take a fucking SHOWER.

Love you-- Kayla c:

Feel free to PM me if you need anything or have any questions :-)

Can you take him up to your room and show him that it's clean?

Ask him why he feels you're doing a half-assed job on the dishes. You could explain to him that you feel frustrated that he doesn't think what you do is good enough. If you can talk reasonably to him, a lot of the time your parent will explain and try to see your point of view more.

My dad used to be the same way when I was your age. It was beyond frustrating, plus he had my wicked step-mom doing that and more. You can try to talk to him, but if he's like my dad, he's too prideful to listen. No matter what you say he's right.

Sometimes trying to tell them otherwise will only make things worse. Your dad may feel like your questioning is authority or talking back. If your parents are still married, try to talk to your mom or another family member about it. Sometimes they can step in and make more of a difference. Until then, the best thing to do may be to grin and bare it. Find an outlet and let all your anger out too, like coming on this site.

Hang in there, he won't be like this to you forever.

Same problem here...I have to clean the bathroom every morning and wait for it to be inspected. If even one thing is out of place...I can't go to school.
I agree with Lyric...parents think you're questioning authority, refusing to listen, or doing it on purpose.
Vent it out here...it won't be long before you can leave!
