    OK well i am so tired of adults thinking that since they are more "experience into something they are more right.
    Than teens are just guilty without the befit of doubt. I am so sick and tired of this hypocritical thing here.

    people our going to give befit of the doubt give to all not just a half of adults and not teens...
    Really need to think before you comment.

    To be honest, I actually knew more about life when I was a teen... I was wrong, but I sure as hell knew everything! LOL

    Ok, hypothetical, if you wanted to build a computer and didn't know how would you get advice from someone who has done none or only one or two or from someone who has built hundreds? If you wanted to learn medicine (be a doctor) would you take classes from a first year medical student or from someone who has been in medicine for 10 or 20 years?

    Is English your second language, or are you just an inexperienced teenager. Never mind. You can always ask an adult for help in putting you right. :tongue:

    In Good Will Hunting, Robin Williams talks about the difference in reading about life and actually living it

    Teens are simply what they are - incredibly energetic, mostly idealistic, surely greedy, inexperienced, secretive around the adults, and truly think they know more and are a downtrodden underclass.

    I surely made each of my teens understand that "downtrodden" would continue to be their position in our household if they violated common sense rules of the road for all of us in the family. They turned out very well, most of the credit going to their mother, I am sure.

    When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years

    I've thought, and my conclusion is you failed to communicate anything beyond frustration with "adults" - presumably defined as anyone not a teen. Perhaps a more articulate thesis would elucidate more promising responses.
