I think that it must be embedded in the DNA of all parents out there that they refuse to apologize for anything.
Do you know what I’m saying?
I think you do…because it’s a fact!
They’ll never actually say “I’m sorry” for anything, even when they’re definitely in the wrong. It’s just the way it is, I guess.
But they WILL apologize in another way, like offering you food or something like that.
Let’s see what people had to say about this issue.
1. Here come the waterworks.
Now it’s YOUR fault.
her: doesn’t smth wrong/ hurtful
me: oh that hurt my feelings could u apolog-
her: *sobbing* sorry for being such a horrible *sniffle* mom.

2. This is a classic.
Nothing happened. Period.

3. This is not good.
Get it together, people!
mom: *me sitting my room, maybe crying* *mom slams door open* “i love you. you know you can tell me anything. but right now you’re overreacting. stop crying and come downstairs”
dad: *ignores me for 2 days, then is angry with me for 4*

4. Shopping will fix this.
Better than nothing, I guess.

5. Just be normal!
And stop crying!
me: *having a panic attack*
my parents: not again, why can’t you just be a normal kid?
my parents: not again, why can’t you stop crying?
me: *not feeling okay*
my parents: not again, why can’t you just be happy for once? it’s always the same thing

6. This is pretty rough.
The problem is that you’re too sensitive. You always have been. Stop taking everything to heart and be more accommodating of other. You’re too selfish and filled with rage at every little thing. I wish I know how I failed to raise you right.

7. A big BUT is always coming.
i’m sorry for getting upset, “buT” you have to understand that blah blah blah *lists off reasons about how it was my fault*

8. It never happened.
Or did it?

9. Let’s break it down.
It’s all your fault!
I’m so sorry I got mad. Let me go into an in depth discussion as to why it’s your fault that it happened. But I’m sorry. https://t.co/CTKzrLjvWJ

10. Ugh. The worst.
I’ve heard this one before.
“Im sorry that you think I owe you an apology”
— Cat Commander (@808_rey_) July 19, 2020
11. Yikes. Sorry.
I hope that gets better!
*constant mocking and making you feel like shit about something they did wrong*
*pretending it didn’t happen and making you feel crazy for saying it did*

Those look pretty familiar, don’t they?
You know they do!
Now we want to hear about the ways that your parents apologize to you.
Tell us all about it in the comments!
