I am looking for a verb (or a phrase) to describe a situation that someone criticizes you in an annoying and constant way. For example, an elder in your family (mostly in conservative environments) might criticize your outfit or your make-up. The following is an example conversation between a mother and daughter:
Mother: You young people! Really, you do not respect anything. I do not know what has happened to you. At least, you should have cut your hair.
Child: Mom don't start inquiring again, please. What is wrong with my hair?
Persian word for this is "گیر دادن" (prounced /gIr daadan/), where /gIr/ means gripping, scraping, sticking to, etc. I hope this helps to clarify what I mean.
I have used inquire as in inquisition, but I want a better modern-day alternative if any.
