Ah, teenagers! The nemesis of human existence vindicating our parents for what we, as teens, did to them.
The long-ago still haunts us. Now we’re paying for it. Nevertheless, you might be the teen kid that did not give your parents a hard time parenting you.
The reason that they know all the answers is that they have not heard all the questions yet. It’s about the ripe season that they do come to believe that delicate time of their lives. They’re in their crossroads. As the cliche goes, in balancing between fools and acting out the know-it-all pointing at their ‘stupid’ parents.
It’s all a phase they are stuck in. A reality we all deal with. And we, the wiser ones in most cases, help them go through it to becoming strong, wise and happy.
