Going Against My Parents Authority Why Is It That I Never Do What My Parents Ask Of Me?

499 words - 2 pages

Going against my parents authority"Wash the dishes, clean the bathrooms, or clean up your room." I constantly hear my parents asking me to complete these tasks. Especially the one about cleaning my room. Why is it that I never do what my parents ask of me?Cleaning up my room or doing a chore that my parents ask of me doesn't seem important to me as it does to them. The things that I'm doing at the time seem much more important, even if they are not. Let's say I'm watching the television an my mom comes in to tell me to clean my room. Watching ...view middle of the document...

Before you know it, other topics come into our argument and things get uglier and in the end, two people end up extremely upset. I shake my head in frustration thinking out loud," Why didn't I just clean up my room?" I didn't win anything from the argument only making my mom's day more stressful than it already is.At a very young age my parents were raised to work very hard. They were even taken out of school to help out the family. I believe my parents want me to learn these values, so that I can become a better person in life. It's hard for them to get me to do the things that they want because I have other values set for myself and cleaning my room or completing another chore is not on the top of my to-do list.As I get older I believe I will loose some of the values I had as a teenager and will take in all the values my parents have and use it on my children when I decided to have kids. Then it will be my turn to be constantly yelling at my kids to clean up their rooms. You would think I would be more lenient towards my kids because I was in their position and I knew exactly how they felt, but I would actually be a little bit more strict with them in getting their chores done ,because I would know the positive affect it would have on them in the future.
