Do you get mad if your parents ask you to do stuff repeatedly?

Do you get mad if your parents ask you to do a favor that involves research and if you can't find the correct answer, they get mad at you? You explain to them nicely and then they call you STUPID for everything you do, then why even asking? I hate it when my dad asks me to do something, I research the answer for him. I gave him the answer whats he looking for but he's never enough. Anyone else like this too?

My mother would never call me stupid for any reason. I have tried to do things on the computer for her and failed and it was fine with her. I feel your father should do it himself.

Failing to find the answer even if there is NO answer to the question. Researching about air conditioning & furnaces since we're getting one soon, there's not much to find info about that I would understand.

I am sorry that you feel unappreciated by your parents. Sometimes there is no pleasing people. I do think that parents can sometime overlook how hard their children are trying to please them; they forget to say thanks for trying even if the task don't go well. Children are so precious and parents who are not supportive are sending the wrong message to their children. Maybe if you speak to your parents about the way they behave when they ask you to do something that don't go well. Let them know how that makes you feeling when you are called stupid or some other name. Keep happy thoughts.

No matter how old a child can get, it still hurts when parents ask you to do something over and over again. they just want you to do something that they want you to do when they want you to do it. It has little or nothing to do with how they feel about the job you are doing.

I have been asked to do things by my parents repeatedly but they never called me stupid. There were times that I got annoyed but I did it anyway. I sometimes ask my 10 year old sone to do something for me but he gets like, I will do it later and never does it. I give him a pass because he is only 10. But I do expect him to be more helpful when he is older. Maybe you should show your parents how to operate a computer so they can look themselves. My mother is now 79 and she looks everything up on a computer.

The only thing i would like to tell you.. If you are interested... Go ahead even the entire world against you.... If you are not interested.... Don't do it even if your parents wants you to do... Don't think about the rest.

You should tell your dad about this.. like a family meeting.. just open your heart to him. I know he will understand and soften his heart, it'll take time but time will come...life is too short... and he'll always be your dad...

I think nobody wants to called stupid , not even by parents. It's a so demeaning word for me and i really get so angry when i will hear someone call me that. You can make me do a chore repeatedly, just don't call me stupid the moment i didn't get what you are asking me to do, or else i will walk out on you, even if you are my parent. It's a good thing my parents never say that word to us.

No, my mother doesn't call me stupid at all, shes a single parent. But she does refer to my sisters mistakes as "STUPID".. she would say like.."Hm...you used your STUPIDITY AGAIN" but never with me or my older brother. Since my sister does dumb stuff a lot of times LOL. she never tells me to do things repeatedly ALL of us. She just say it ones and that's it we get it. But she DOES SAY ALL SORTS OF NONSENSE OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN LOl... Like "don't get yourself in trouble, i won't help you" or "finish school" or don't get your girlfriend pregnant that her favorite.... shes probably said a million times now. Literally because she's been saying those lines since I was like ZERO years old

My parents have asked me to do things and when I couldn't find the answer, they wouldn't yell at me or get mad at me. They might not always like that I couldn't find the answer, depending on what they asked me, but they still wouldn't get mad. They would simply accept it. Honestly, I do think that there is certainly a better way of approaching the situation than yelling and getting mad. It just doesn't seem to be the right way to do it, or at least the best way to do it.
