Unfair parent perk
It's so unfair that parents in general feel that they don't need to tell off and lecture kids that are not they're own simply cuz of that but they can tell me off constantly and be harsh simply cuz I am and blame me for everything. Like when I'm fighting with a peer and my parents don't want to hear that it was their fault and deserved my anger and just be mad at me simply cuz the other person isn't their child, or when we me and a friend are messing around and I'm the only one that gets told off for making a racket, or having a go at me for missing job recruitment invitations when the employer phoned me up saying they will give me an email when they didn't and getting their instincts wrong on professionals always being resourceful and blaming me for that, even feeling that they don't need to tell my cousin's off or order them around when they happen to be children of their siblings and family too. The whole "not telling off guests" rule is nuts and there mustn't be a such thing as "other people's kids", after all we didn't choose our parents and every person is human hence must be corrected or treated with leniency depending on their regardless of whether they are family or your own children. I hate hearing the fact that parents know you all too well and didn't raise other children like you. As I said before they may know me all too well but they never understand me, and again we can't help that they raised us and anyone can take care of you whether they're ur parents or not. I find my friend of the family more of a mum than my own mum is. And a few of my mum's friends have told me off and lectured me a few times when I was younger, and my mum herself is kind of strict on my cousins cuz they're always procrastinating and fighting and being stubborn (even worse than me )
