Do you think teenagers today have more of an know-it-all attitude then ever before?

I'm a teenager and I do know everything. So there!
I'm a teenager who admits I don't know everything and respects other people
Agreed. Many teenagers today have attitude out the wazoo.
Disagree. I don't find teenagers any different today than in past generations.

teenagers know everything


I have great respect for many young people on SH. Many display an intelligence and wisdom beyond their years.

And then there are the ones who make you wonder where their parents are and what the heck they are teaching them.

    There is a certain amount of seemingly know it all behavior in teens across all time. Ignorance really is bliss. But it always seems worse when comparing what one knows now, versus what teens think they know.

    A lot of kids think they know it all from being a parent i ask how would you know? always hear "teen pregnancy" tv show and it makes me angry bc a lot of teens think its cool to have a kid when in reality they are still kids themselves

    I'm a high school teacher, and I think students today are less obnoxious, less know-it-all, more engaged in their studies and generally better behaved than they were when I was in high school (35 years ago).

    I noticed that the second I hit 30, I started hating teenagers. As each year has gone by, my regard for teenagers has gone down more and more. This isn't a smack on Teenagers either, I just think that every single generation hits a point where their tolerance for younger people... people that they once were not all that long ago ... suddenly disappears.

    So teens, I think you are no more nor are less rude than any generation in the past.

    I agree. I KNOW some of the teachers I work with were pain in the ass kids themselves. I KNOW that some of them smoked pot, cut classes, talked back to their teachers, got into fights, didn't turn in assignments, etc, etc, but to hear them talk, you'd think the past never happened and the students we have today invented those behaviors.

    Mark Twain once wrote that when he was 17 he couldn't believe how stupid his father was AND when he turned 22, he was amazed at how much his father had learned.

    I think most of it comes down to parents not creating a strong family unit anymore...they are too busy to spend lots of quality time with them from childhood, to be good role models, to teach them to always take responsibility for their actions, and respect for their elders.
    It also has snowballed with the neglected kids growing into parents, and so on.
    Life in every decade gets faster and busier than the one before.

    They're pretty much the same as when I was a kid with one exception. There are more boys being raised by single moms now. These boys often have no one to teach them how to be men, so they wing it, often badly.

    I grew up in the 50's and 60's. I don't think that the kids today are that much different than they were then. More violent maybe, which worries me greatly. This emo and cutting worries me greatly too. I just want to give them a big hug and reassure these that they can make it without doing this. Teen suicide is of great concern too.

    My youngest son is 22. I almost can't stand being around him because of his know it all attitude and his need to argue every point. know it all

    I had they same attitude. They will learn better like we did, or completely fail in life.

    Hmmmm...can't imagine you with attitude. ~)

    But I have to disagree with you on one point. When I was a teenager, back in the stone ages, we respected others or else. And an attitude could be painful. Literally.
