    I don't understand why parents ask their children to do things for the that they ca do for themselves.

    An example of this would be my mother asking me to get her a drink..

    My mother isn't in a wheelchair, she isn't bedbound, I don't see why she cannot get herself a drink.

    A worse example would be my mother sitting down NEAR a light switch or near her phone or near the tv remote and she asks me to turn the light on/get her phone/the tv remote.

    I do not understand why she cannot do this for herself.

    I can understand if y mother is/was tried or ill but there isn't really any excuse to why she cannot do it herself.

    I wouldn't ever as my children to do that for me, I am more than capable of doing it myself!

    Funny how your mother never mentions the tens of thousands of pounds that she spent raising you.

    Three words: Have some gratitude.

    maybe she needs constant reassurance that you're mentally capable of such tasks, given your calibre of posts here
    My mother doesn't know this site exists.

    My mother didn't go into higher education so she won't be on this site.

    I would never even think of complaining about trivial things like these. My parents have done a lot for me and I appreciate everything they've given me. Granted, I haven't had the best relationship with them and they beat me when I was younger (physical punishment is still legal in some countries), but I still love them very much.

    It's not trivial. It's something that happens almost everyday.
    I also love my parents but this is just really annoying

    I was thankful when my mother said "I'll do it myself" when she asked me to get her something..

    Be thankful that she still sees perks in keeping you under her roof, you'd probably be out on your arse otherwise.

    I am grateful but there's no excuse of them to ask me to do things they can do themselves. I don't mind helping them if they need help with something.
