    • I’ve been there.  From experience we know they think that parents don’t know anything and we‘re just trying to run their lives, keep them from having fun, blah, blah, blah.  I just told my daughter what I had to say and always ended with “you have to make your own mistakes because you’ll do what you want to anyway“.  It didn’t take long before she realized that I did know what I was talking about and only wanted what was in her best interest.  Now I get calls daily and a lot of them are because she WANTS my advice.  How’s that for someone who used to think I didn’t know anything???  :)

    • You have to say something, but say it nicely and then leave well enough alone.

      When I was nineteen my mom had her doubts about the guy I was seeing.  She didn’t say anything at all with the assumption I wouldn’t listen to her.  Well, I ended up marrying the guy and then eventually divorcing him. I told her one day that if she had all those doubts she should have said something.  Might not have changed my mind, and then again it might have saved a lot of heartache.
