    Indeed I thought so too... -_-;; If it's my child... jia latz... -_-;;

    I've talked to my parents so many times before already -_-;; It's their mentality of wanting something to be done badly that started their nagging, and my mentality of "my pace" which I 'counteract' against their nagging. I understand it very well -_-;;

    But personality wise, both for my parents and me, I think it's not something that can be changed a day or 2. Sometimes, trust is more important. If my parents trust me in 'doing', and I trust my parents in allowing me to 'do', then nagging will not happen. Same thing goes to my nephew (except they are young and initiatives are not a priority to them).

    though i also hate their constant nagging, bud i do understand their point behind it and i do cherish them b/c at least i know they still cared about me and know that i will still listen to them and cherish their advices...
    Way Of The Dragon: From a distance - 20 paddlers move in perfect rhythm to a muted drum beat, gracefully skimming the water's surface. Up close - determined grunts and strained sinews with oars in grip, dig vigorously into the water. The majestic head of the dragon fronts this contraption but the real heart lies just behind it, at the apex of the bow. Like a conductor of an orchestra, the drummer leads his crew with the calculated beat of his drum. Such is the realm of dragon boating.

    I think there are different kind of nag, yours is merely repeated warning, and you nag because your daughter isn't following your instructions.

    There are parents who nag even when their kids are already following instructions. Also, some of them "nag" by liking to drag their sentences and some are just purely poor at expression.

    Mom: Ah boy, you know hor, you must close the window when it rains. If not hor, later the floor all wet. Remember leh, raining must close windows. When you close windows that time, remember to close fully. Ok ah, I going out now already ah, remember ah, if raining must close window ah, if not hor, later come back floor wet I got to wipe. That time the aunty floor wet fall down hor, in hopsital leh. Close window ah.

    Son:.....

    Mom: *Goes out to market*

    *Thunder Lightning RAIN!*

    Son: Closes window, lock.

    Mom: *Comes back from market* Wah, you remembered to close window, if not hor, now floor all wet already. Eh I bought this toufu you like one. Wah, I dunno really will rain leh, if water gets in ah, floor wet can fall down known. So you remember ah, next time hor, when I go out, you need to close window. Sometimes hor, I forget to remind you, I will sms you, but hor just try to remember hor, always close window.

    Son: ......

    Actually I don't mind the nagging, its such a small thing seriously, in the bigger picture. There are usually more important stuff to be resolve between parents and childern.
