No disrespect. I understand being young sometimes make you naive but older folks always feel like bc of there age makes them right. Like the older day me and my mom was talking about my past relationship and I didn't agree with her she says I know I'm right bc I am older then you. Being older doesn't make you smart what do you think??

It's called wisdom. Every time one of my kids has not listened to it, and the possible outcomes of what they may choose, and chosen what they "felt", it has not gone well for them.

It's called life experience. We all thought we knew everything when we were your age too. When you get to our age, you'll understand. Can't explain it better than that.

Then don't ask questions on here. Surley you can find something useful to do--around your own town. If you would ask sensible question--instead of being the snotty know it all---maybe you would have seen this dilemma--in a more mature sensible way!!

Well...your mother was wrong. However, most "old people" have gone through what younger people have gone through and have gained a bit of wisdom in some situations. .

We definitely don't know anything, but in many cases we also remember being very certain about some of the same sorts of things we hear younger people say and having learned that things aren't quite so simple as life went on.

I am not saying older people are not wise bc they are but it does get annoying when they are wrong and they refuse to admit it.

It's only women who know everything, you know that!

Because we have more life experience than you.

Because we know how society works even if it doesn't fit the twaddle you were fed in school.

Because we thought like you when we were young, but we know better now.

If you know everything then why aren't you married to a STUD and making a million bucks a week despite your arrogant attitude? You have a lot of growing up to do, little girl.

Older people have already done the things you are doing and the things you have yet to do its called life experience. Unless you have brain damaged or retarded parents then usually they are right.

When my stepfather met my ex-husband for the first time he pulled me aside and gave me a $100 bill and said "Here, put him on a plane, send him home".

Well I was insulted! I knew better! Stupid old people think they know everything!

This is something my moms says and I tell her mom you don't have to experience something to learn from it I see other people go through things I have never done like drinking and driving I don't drink or do drugs I don't have to do it to learn not too.

Being older does not make you smarter, just older. Only being smarter makes you smarter.
Most of the time when older people (women, primarily) put younger people (younger women) down, it's jealousy, pure & simple.
Both of you want the 6'4, 22-year old bodybuilding bartender, but mom has no chance.

You don't even know me but your so quick to judge me. Here's a lesson get to know somebody before passing judgement on them. You don't have to experience something to know its not wise.

that's good you learn from it, but when your mom explains something that she has done a doezen times, even before you were born, she knows what shes talking about. However, if she's just spewing shit out of her mouth just because she don't know the answer, then she is an immature mom. Some people go through life with blinders on. Most of us learn from our experiences, as will you. I hope. Just remember to always keep an open mind when an elder is speaking.
One of my favorite things used to be going with my dad on Saturdays to the Hunting club. It was always a bunch of old farts sitting around drinking, talking shit. I look back on that now and can't even begin to tell you how much shit I learned from them. Of course I thought they were fulla shit back then.

Ahhh, bash on the older folk thread...'bout time. LOL

My 2cents, older people usually have some good insight, not always, but often. Your parents want what is best for you, for you to be happy and possibly avoid some "errors/mistakes" they may have made. As an adult, you can listen and make a choice whether you follow said advice or not.

Best of luck to you!
