it's life but i got a taste of my own medicine, when my parents are at work, i'm responsible for everything. so i ask my brother nicely to go and vaccum the floor before mum and dad come home, he said he will do it later, i don't know why but i really wanted him to do it now, so i said it again and he still didn't listen. and this seriously made me get annoyed. just imagine when you tell someone whether it may be your friends or siblings to do something and they don't, how does that make you feel especially if they give you attitude and tell you what to do.
i don't think parents in this case are trying to make you something your not, i think they just want things to get done. i know i wasn't trying to change my brother in to something his not. we should put ourselves in our parents position, in this case put yourself in your mums position and see if you like it or not. btw i'm 16. i can totally understand the feeling of parents especially mums getting angry over nothing and think your talking back at them all the time. parents don't like being told what to do and how to act especially over stuff like chores. telling your mum not to make faces may have provoked her more as, most likely she may have thought, your not my mum, don't tell what to do. i don't know if you gave attitude to your mum, but thats the one thing they don't like, it shows that you don't respect them or care what they want or think, especially over trivial things
