I Am An Adult Who Gets Treated Like a Child

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 440 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...

    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.

    So my mom came into my room this evening

    calling me a drug addict because I've been taking more painkillers than usual. There's something wrong with my arm and I've had a migraine for the last week. I don't just take painkillers. Then my mom says I go out and look for trouble... Like it was my fault I was raped last...

    Domestic Discipline

    Since my Wife and i actually met, we had some kind of agreement: SHE would be the leader of the pack! And that would mean: a Wife Led Relationship! So.. rules for her hubby-me!, allowments and HER taking charge! For me: THIS is how it is supposed to be, for me! Not complaining...

    Got Sick And Now I Am Being Treated Like I Am 3

    it's hard to lose function of your body and adjust to growing limitations on a daily basis. I have a hard time adjusting and adapting to life, to mourning what I have lost, and to the constant struggle i have with doctors over why I am declining so rapidly. I will admit that I...

    I Am 51! (not 15) Mom And Dad.

    I am a 51 yr. old gentleman with a very sad history of drug addiction, unemployment, and have been to prison twice for supporting my habit. The second time I was locked up, I made a deal with God. I promised to never touch a street drug or commit another crime in my life if only...

    I damaged my hands and the nerves in my hands

    as a small child. As a result of that certain tasks (like typing) are hard and take a while. I barely get to do anything for myself and my younger brothers look down on me. I want to shout in frustration that I am not a child, but I am really. I am small and everything is done...

    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...

    I Look and Sound Young.

    I look and sound younger then I am. I've tried to change my clothing style or wear make up more often (even though it just doesn't feel like me) or cut my hair. But once people meet me, they think I am younger then what I really am. It's not really bad, they are only off by a...

    I Deserve It Though.

    People treat me like I'm a freshman in high

    school. I'm a sophomore in college for ****'s sake! Just because I act like a kid sometimes doesn't mean I should be treated like one all the time.

    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...

    I get undermined constantly by my family.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
