The worst thing you could say to a parent is to give them unsolicited advice. People know that, but we are all hearing those advice every single day. Sometimes it’s not only annoying but an insult. Well, here are some of the most annoying things people tell parents.
Most Annoying Things People Tell Parents
1. “I could never let someone else raise my kid.”
This is something parents that choose to have careers hear a lot. Drives me up the wall and one day I will lose it. My daughter goes to a daycare where she has fun and learning a lot. She found great friends there and she loves it. But of course, you know better, don’t you?
2. “Technology is just ruining our kids! Back in my day…”.
I hate “Back in my day…” comment and most of the time I don’t even know how to respond. Drives me insane. In my opinion, the world is pretty awesome these days. Not perfect, but a lot better than the days when you could buy another human being at a market. I also love that I can bring my daughter up in the age of technology. That doesn’t mean the nature is not here anymore. She is not glued to her screen. She likes going out even more than watching Minions on her tablet.
The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.
– Qoute by Socrates, around the 4th century BC.
3. “In our days we didn’t have car seats and our kids turned out just fine”
The is one of the most annoying things! Yes, you got lucky that you weren’t in a car accident, but what about all the parents who weren’t so lucky? I hear this a lot from my older family members and it seems that they just don’t get it how they were in fact really happy that nothing bad happened.
