The Torah doesnt say "Honor thy father and mother ONLY IF THEYRE NICE TO YOU".
We are commanded to honor them, period. Regardless of whether or not we agree with their parenting techniques, or their personality, or their rules etc...
Even if theyd be G-d forbid abusive. Thats the law. (And thats a different discussion)
But, it does help to have in mind the following:
1. We all have different challenges in life. Thats what makes us who we are. Some are easier, some are harder. But having parents that are hard to get along with is a challenge in life. And you will definitely come out strong and self confident if youre able to separate your emotions and intellect, swallow ur pride, and give them the honor they deserve. Even just for bringng u into this world you owe them your life.
2. Also have in mind- I dont know how old u are but chances are when u get a bit older you'll start appreciating and understanding your parents much more,(maybe even agreeing with them??) and it would be a shame to ruin ur relationship with them now and regret it later when you'll really need them and wanna turn to them for advice.

And btw, statistics proove that you'll probly be just like them when ur a parent so start taking notes =)

parents can be very annoying; however, you need to focus on all the good they do for you. supposing that this is a normal situation everyone can get annoying at times but the mitzva still applies...
