Twitterjaya reaches peak adulthood by parenting their parents

Anne Dorall

Growing up, parents were like superheroes, always being the adult that you turn to, no matter what the problem is.

We may have hated how they refused to let us eat Maggi for dinner or take away our handphones, but deep down we all understood that it was for our own good. (Or so they would say, anyway.)


Which is why it’s difficult to learn as we grow up that at the end of the day, they are only human, just like us. They’re not super-adults, they’re not invincible, and they’re not perfect.

Twitter user @leenbakar found that parenting her parents was peak adulting behaviour and Twitterjaya shared her sentiments.


Many parents are stubborn and can sometimes respond badly to being parented by their own children. For most, they always see their children as kids, even if they are now full-grown adults of their own.


In fact, adult children can feel very torn between the conflict of parenting their parents and just letting them be… (Kind of how they used to parent us, right?)

It’s never easy to go from revering your parents to having to parent them, but that’s just a fact of life.

PS: and parents, please listen to your kids once in a while. It’s for your own good.
