would do whatever if someone tell you, and they are younger then you ? such tell you who you should and shouldnt hang out with, and if you want to go and see someone and they throw a fit about it so you dont go? i know people like this, my neice who's 26 listen to her cousin who's 17, the 17 years will tell the 26 she isnt allow to come and see us, and tell her husband he shouldnt have anything to do with us. its mostly because my wife, daughter and myself wont allow her to tell us what to do, so would you listen to someone else when it comes going to see family or friends? myself i would be hell no, i dont listen to anyone when it comes to anything specaily who i hang out with

I was always listen to what anyone has to say - whatever age they are. But I won't necessarily do what they tell me to do just because they said so. If they have issues with another family member or friend - and I don't . . . well, they're going to have to take it with them themselves - I'm not going to take sides. I'm not in high school anymore, so I'm not going to play high school games.

i wont specaily if they are trying to tell me what i should do and who i should or shouldnt hang out with. my daughter in law used to try to tell us if we want to be able to post pictures of the grandkids we must obey her, yeah i went off on her and my son. told her i dont obey her she's not my wife, or my God. maybe this why we dont get to see the grandkids because i refuse to have to allow her to be in control of my life or anyone else in that fact

What? Did she really use the word "obey"? I can understand if she has opinions about things, but to tell you right out as if she's your boss is just silly. Yah, it's possible she won't let you see the grandkids because it's her way or the highway, but it's sad she is allowing her kids to miss out on family.

I am a little too old for that, your niece is still young and impressionable and there may be more to the story. If the 26 year old wants to be told... there isnt much you can do about it. Chances are, she may realize soon how silly it is to listen to a 17 year old. Most times, 26 year olds are a little smarter than 17 year olds... most times.

well with the younger niece her mom and grandparnets always made excuses for her why she do the things she does, they did the same for her brother as well. so she think she be in control of everyone and anyone she wants to be. yeah she learned i dont play that stuff. but like her brother when she get older then mom and grandparnets wont think its funny anymore.

Hi,there Let kids to tell me what should I do and what shouldnt,or whom I'd better to stay with???? (I construe and call anyone that younger than me kid,even it's just a month) It's unbelievable for me,and maybe it will never happen to me.I'm not a guy who has great superiorities and arrogance lean om my elder age when I'm with “kids”,and merely listen to the advices from elders.I just cannt image any reason to persuade me into succumb to the words from their mouthes whose working and living experience less than mine...

I take up advice even from my younger friends and relatives as long as what they are telling me is relevant and sensible. I won't listen to my older friends who tell me what I think is crap.

the trouble with younger people they havent lived life. i tell people always go to someone with gray hair because they have more experiance with life, where younger people have no clue. but i am not talking advance i am talking about them telling who you can and cant hang out with. so if your younger friend tells you not to hang out with your cousin would listen to freind

dear syankee, generation of today are given their freedom to say what is on their mind yet most of them forget the value of respect for elders. i find it very disrespectful for someone younger telling an elder what to do. if he/she does not realize it, i guess he/she needs a lecture. have a nice day. ann

Hmmm... It's hard to imagine what I'd do in this situation. It's because I have not experienced this one yet. I've grew up in a family and environment where the young people are expected to obey and listen to their elders. I can't imagine being advised by someone younger than me on what I need to do. Usually it is me who gives advises to younger people and I' being advised by people older than me.

well i could judge if what this younger man suggesting is good or negative.. why not do it he/she has points and he is right.. sometimes i have ego too but when i see that younger one is suggesting good then i would go for it..

That girl sounds like a spoild brat. If someone younger then me tried to tell me how to run my life, I'd walk away and have nothing to do with them. And, I don't care if its "family". Because you know what? I have no "family" not after how I've been treated. As far as I'm concerned I'm alone. And while I don't like it, I don't want to deal with them either.

I don't listen to younger fellows. There are times i have to pretend but i'm not really listening. I just don't find that kind of respect from them. I respect them but not the same as i respect older people.

it is really hard to take advice or guidance from young people.Our ego will feel hurt in the first place and it is not an office to have a younger boss.In a family hierarchy,seniors are only in a position to order youngsters.and sometimes,youngsters tend to command like that due to some hatreds.Then you have the responsibility to convince them.
