    There will always be the exuberance and folly of youth. Be patient, most grow up and out of it.

    I understand that and accept that, I was one. It just seems to me, and it might be just because of spending way too much time on this social debate site, that there is increased arrogance and much less respect. I think it's from giving too many trophies for less than excellent performances. Employers are seeing it in the work place when they suddenly find themselves as just one of the ordinary masses. We have kids come to work and when they've worked a year or two they suddenly think they are equal with all the people who have been there 30 years or more.

    My grandfather said it to my father. My father said it to me. I’ll say it to you: “Keep walking. Someday you’ll reach me.” Be patient.

    Re: Awarding trophies. You wouldn’t want to break anyone's spirit by declaring them a loser would you? They’ll develop complexes, and become degenerates, mass murderers, politicians, etc., etc., and all that sort of rot!

    Nothing earth shattering, I was brought up to respect my elders and being lectured with talking points by a kid whose chief worry is what to do over the weekend tends to be a bit of an irritant. I'm more than open to discussion with anyone willing to do it in a civilized manner. Like many have pointed out on this thread, some young folks have some pretty amazing insight.

    I was just reading another book and they put these lyrics in it and I cracked up! The song is "I'm 18" by Alice Cooper.

    Lines form on my face and hands
    Lines form from the ups and downs
    I´m in the middle, without any plans
    I´m a boy and I´m a man.

    I´m eighteen
    And I don´t know what I want
    Eighteen
    I just don´t know what I want
    Eighteen
    I gotta get away
    Eighteen
    I gotta get out of this place
    I´ll go runnin´ in outer space
    Oh yeah.

    I got a
    Baby´s brain and an old man´s heart
    Took eighteen years to get this far
    Don´t always know what I´m talkin´ about
    Feels like I´m livin´ in the middle of doubt
    Cause I´m eighteen
    I get confused every day
    Eighteen
    I just don´t know what to say
    Eighteen
    I gotta get away.

    Lines form on my face and my hands
    Lines form on the left and right
    I´m the middle
    The middle of life
    I´m a boy and I´m a man
    I´m eighteen and I like it
    Yes I like it
    Oh, I like it
    Love it, like it, love it
    Eighteen, Eighteen, Eighteen
    I´m eighteen and I like it.

    Sorry, but I dislike this notion; while age definitely plays a role in determining how much experience you've had, each person is different and grows up with different experiences. This is a habit people get into as they age, believing that they are authority figures. It's also a bad habit authority figures get into--thinking that they're always right.

    If you truly want to help the next generation then teach by example; make sure you have valid points of discussion and use clear logical analysis when having discussions with these people.

    If the kids were as smart as they thought they were, they would know that their 'elders' would be much more open-minded if they felt they were being respected.

    Take a look at the childish replies on this post by so-called "adults" and it becomes obvious that far too many of them never matured past the middle school mentality.

    Anyone who would immediately dismiss my argument or my position because of my age isn't someone I would hold in a very high regard. It's hard to have any respect whatsoever for someone who behaves like that.

    Oh, really? And what about the people on this post who are agreeing with you? Do they know what it was about?

    This post speaks for itself. Apparently some teenager got your feathers all in a ruffle and you got all defensive and decided to start a good old-fashioned circlejerk about it. YOU are the one who is acting immature.

    Your language is inappropriate for children, you should clean it up. It doesn't make you appear more mature.

    If this is your passive-aggressive attempt to snipe at me, congratulations. You've managed to complain about teenagers whilst acting in the very same manner you supposedly despise. Hypocrisy, much?

    You can deny it all you want, but your behavior speaks for itself.

    You entered a discussion with an eighteen-year-old, effectively lost your temper, tried to save face by acting condescending and dismissive, and then decided to make a poll attacking me for having an opinion contrary to yours. I never spoke condescendingly to you, but you've always had a holier-than-thou attitude when typing to me (and other people.) You interpret reactions such as stunned disbelief with such defensiveness, to the point where you accuse me of trying to "school" you, when I'm really just shocked at how you take one person's behavior and apply it across the board.

    In fact, this poll is a perfect example of that. You see what you want in me, and then make a sweeping generalization about teenagers in general.

    You pretty much overreacted, over-the-top, and then made a poll that demonstrates you have the overall maturity of your shoe size. And you even try to defend your immature behavior with the excuse that everyone else is doing it.

    You've lost. Any and all respect I might have had for you, was just shot dead. I normally respect people who are older than me, because their experience is meaningful, but I've finally concluded you are neither worth my time nor my respect.

    So, once again, I must congratulate you. It's rare that someone's able to press my buttons so effectively, but you've managed to do it.

    Good day.
