Do you think it ever occurs to teenagers that the day will come when they`ll know as little as their parents?

Me and my friends were actually talking about this the other day. We realized that although now we think our parents are idiots for not knowing how to work an iPod, but when we have kids, we aren't going to be able to keep up with them either.

Sigh... I always tell myself that if I ever have kids, I won't raise them the same way my parents raised me.

heh, i never presumed to know more than my father

I'm already starting to realize that almost myself now and I don't even have kids yet. I'm out of it when it comes to whats cool with teenagers these days.

I don't think they think about it cause from my own experience I never thought about how it would be like to have kids like me and my brother.

That thought has never crossed my mind, and now that it has it is sorta depressing.

the things you get to look forward to :(

Bah hah hah. My mom always says that she tries to be a fun mom because her parents were strict and overprotective when she was a teenager.

Honestly though, my mom could be a little MORE strict

Ummm. It hasn't occured to me yet
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 10/9/07 - 3:18:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, I always mention this to my friends.

Don't worry, you're still ahead of me. I am too, and I still am a teenager!!!

It has occurred to me, but I think there is a difference.
My parents, for example, are a lot more up-to-date than their parents were when they were teenagers. I intend to continue that trend, as I am genuinely interested in all things new - I don't see why that would change.

They may consider it but I doubt that feeling REALLY kicks in until you are about to have a kid
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 6/20/08 - 3:30:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Haha, I love this question. And no, I think teenagers are too "in the now" to think that far ahead.
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 6/20/08 - 3:47:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
Try being a teenage parent.. you start to realize things like that verrrry quickly.
11 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 7/4/08 - 1:50:43 AM EST (GMT-5)
I'm sure when I reach their age I won't know how to work the latest technologies, know the latest trends etc.

Heck, tonight I was talking to my mom about Lolcats and she was oh so very confused.

Oh, I already don't know how to exactly operate some things already. Although, with a little instruction manual, or even just verbal instructions, I get things pretty quick. I hope this stays with me.

...well it didn't occur to me until just now. lol.
