I Am An Adult Who Gets Treated Like a Child

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 418 People

    Some women feel the need to be treated like a

    child especially in a disciplining mode. Some relate to when they were being disciplined as a child in their child hood. I do this but discipline as an adult because to me it takes more to discipline and adult than a child. However I do know women have much more emotional...

    52 Going On 12

    Let me set the scene: Born in 1960, the youngest of six children to parents who really didn't want six children. Parent who did what any good Catholic would do: be fruitful and multiply, and then send their kids off to Catholic school. To this day, my siblings treat me as if I...

    I am nearly 25 and my parents treat me like I

    am 16. Every time I stay at my boyfriend's place she gives me serious dirty looks and ignores me. Which I feel is extremely childish itself. If I wasn't a student I would be living with him already.

    I'm the youngest, and my entire family babies

    me. I love them, and the fact that they're always there to help. It can be extremely frustrating, though. They helped me move last weekend, and my mother would freak out every time I picked up a box that she deemed too heavy. It doesn't help that I look young enough that I still...

    Friend's Husband Talks Down To Me

    I room with my friend and her husband.  There have been a couple of incidences where I get into an arguement with my friend, and her husband jumps in and starts yelling at me like I'm some little child.  It doesn't matter if I'm right or she's right, he will...

    This is true about me.

    Everyone thinks they are better than me from my little nieces, to my co-workers, to my boss- anyone at all in fact. I have absolutely no idea why. I just assume their egos are simply so blinding that they simply can't see straight- instead they interact with the sterotype or...

    My Father And My Older Sister Help Me Out

    My father and older sister help me with my affairs. I always have been very quiet, and I may appear mentally retarded (in the true sense) to them. I live with my father and he handles the household affairs. I may not be good at living on my own or taking care of my affairs...

    They act as if im an idiot... literally. I find it frustrating, especially when they dont give me a chance to speak. For instance, my baby niece was having a bad day, and I tried telling her that even though the morning wasnt going well for her- she still had the rest of the...

    Looks Or Character?

    I always get told how sweet and cute I am and it kind of embarrasses me. I am nearly 27 and a lot of people still think I am about 17/18. I am only just 5'3 tall and am very slim, I have tiny hands and feet and I guess that gives off a childlike impression. I have a VERY young...

    How Infuriating !

    At 51 to be talked down to and at as if I were five is an insult. As much as I've been through and experienced, I don't take kindly to it. It's frustrating. And it always turns into an argument and hurt feelings.......usually mine.
