why do some parents get so upset with the littlest things?

Because sometimes the littlest things can emerge into bigger problems in the future.

It depends on what this littlest thing is. Homework, chores, respect, doing the right thing...these are not little things. I am a mom, I try to choose my battles. But whatever I do, it's in the best interest of my kids. I only want to raise them to be good, balanced, happy and productive young adults. 8)

Parents often get upset about 'little things' because kids often don't know how important these little things are in lessons for real life.

They just think that littler things will turn into bigger things and then all of a sudden you're coming home with tattoos and a baby. It's just a crazy parenting thing they think they have to do.

Because they often know that sometimes the littlest thing ends up being a big problem. Think of it like pregnancy, it starts off as just one cell that you can't even see with your eye.
