A way of Parenting: Insults

15 May

As the title suggests this is another parent post… yeah I got parent issues but putting that aside.

My parents specifically my mother who insults me to try and ‘teach’ me what is right and what is wrong. I question is the insulting necessary in making your point? To which I would answer no.

Insult comes from (and I quote from dictionary.com) to affect as an affront; offend or demean.

During these conversation what usually happens is that she is grinding and questioning me on why ain’t I studying or what not and what I do during the time that I am not studying. To her there is no such thing as playtime there is only time to study. I think I have a right of playing my DS or watching Youtube videos over the weekend during school days or doing whatever I want not relating to studying over the summer break.

With the main topic I think most parents would love to see their children study a lot but I feel like they need a break and my parents do not give me that break that I need to recharge myself to get started on studying again. Insults that come up from these ‘lectures’ are things like my current weight (oh you gained some weight go study), my skin’s condition (your skin looks horrible and I’m sure you’re like that inside as well so go study), and sometimes it would lead to how I’m not the child that they wanted (i shouldn’t have given birth to you if I knew you were like this so go study).

If you were going to lecture me why do you have to hurt my feelings in the process?
