    I have to say that for any teenager, they display many different behaviors that are irritating! They are learning their boundaries and where they fit in life. I would have to say that with my 13 year old, it is when he gets so stubborn and says no to me. If I ask him to do a chore and he doesn't feel like it, he will just say no to me and stand right in front of me like he is challenging me. When he loses his tv, games or gets grounded; than all of a sudden he will go do what I had asked him. I wish he would just see how easy it is in the first place to obey your parents. Great Question!

    My kids are grown but I remember their teens years very well.  I think the most annoying habit or personality trait was from my oldest child, a daughter.  Her mood could turn on a dime from fun and pleasant to irritable.  She's still this way but I can always come home if it bothers me :-)

      I thought girls were supposed to be worse than boys...my oldest is a boy and his mood switches from upbeat and happy to the exorcist meets lucifer at times lol jk about the severity of the last part but sometimes thats really what I think

    I recently asked my teen to bring his trashcan down to empty, and later I saw he had left the full bin on the kitchen counter.  I think he was surprised I was annoyed. It is true that I did just ask him to bring it down to empty, not that he should empty it. 

    The most perplexing thing he does (actually has done for years) is to boycott all homework and at-home studying.

      LOL Mine empties the trashcan in the kitchen, leaves the top off and doesn't replace the bag and is shocked when I am upset that the chore wasn't done.  And mine too with the homework, he is so bright but charter school for 8th bc he doesn't do hmwk

    The behaviour of teenagers that upsets me the most is this habbit of constant texting one another....

      I am right there with you; they have no idea what proper interpersonal communication skills are...I asked my son to put his phone away on silent in an appt and he asked me why?? He even texted and was on FB talking to a cop!  I don't get it....

    We have two teenagers, one boy and one girl.

    For our son it is that he always thinks he knows what we are about to say so he doesn't pay attention tot he whole conversation; then he gets irritated because we "didn't tell him".

    Our daughter gets an attitude that shouldn't be as big as it is because she is a small young lady.  We can point out that she said something with a bit of attitude and she just doesn't see it.

    How teenagers treat their parents. You see it in public all the time, yelling, swearing and name calling in front of everyone, embarrassing the poor parents. It's sad to see this. They should be respectful to their parents for all they do for them.

      I had to have my son look up the definition of respect and list five ways he can change his behavior
