Don't you hate when your parents so nosy about your personal business?

Sometimes, I just don't like my parents too nosy about my personal life, and my personal business, don't you feel the same? There were always too many questions to answer, and too many questions to be asked. I just don't want them know too much, or they might give me those lectures. I knew that they love me this way, somehow I just don't feel comfortable to share at the moment.

Speaking from a parent's point of view, we don't even realize that we are being nosy. When I first had children, it really irritated me to have to pay attention to every detail in order to raise my children properly. I was amazed at how many, what I would think of as, stupid statements I would make in a day explaining about stuff. Now many years later it just comes naturally and I don't even think about it. It really bugs the kids but that's just the way it is. Now I'm to the point of looking forward to seeing grandchildren and watching my children morph into someone like me or not. Whenever your parents bug you, think about all the times you don't remember when they took care of you and cleaned up after you, worried about you, prayed for you, counted your fingers and toes, checked you to make sure you were okay, etc. It's a big job but this really shows that they love you and they need to adjust to you becoming an adult. You didn't come with an instruction book and they probably didn't come with any experience. Soon you will be on your own and this irritation will pass.

Nice to get an opinion from another parent. I used to think that my parents were nosy AT TIMES but eventually, now that I have my own daughter, I just want to keep updated because I know our children will not be ours forever.

Well my parents are not...they maintain thin line with my personal works.

ell, parents WILL be parents. I think they just want to know what is going on in your life. They do not really mean to be nosy but just want to be updated. Don't feel bad, you will understand why when you become a parent yourself.
