We’ve all had arguments with our parents, most of them end well and mostly everything goes back to normal.
My parents are different… they like threats, well, my Mum specifically. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Mum, but she prefers shouting and threats over logical reasoning. Oh the wonders of human emotion.
Hypocrisy – The practice of professing beliefs, feelings, or virtues that one does not hold or possess; falseness.
This is something my Mum does very often. If she doesn’t want to talk about something, she’ll just stop and ignore you, however, if you don’t want to talk about something, she will shout at you.
Do you think your parents overreact to things? You most likely do. A lot of parents overreact, but mine are different… They blow everything out of proportion. If you do something they don’t like, you’ll feel like you’ve just entered an erupting volcano.
I don’t know where I’m going with this, but long story short: my parents are very argumentative, and will threaten you with stuff ranging from eviction to talking to your friends (which is petty) if you don’t follow their rules, even as an adult.
