Do adults give kids the credit they deserve.And

yes

VS.

no

Side Score: 13

Yes, I think that most adults will give kids credit if it's deserved. Why shouldn't they? If it's not deserved, then why should they? I've taken the time to read your other posts here on CD and I must say I'd have a very difficult time giving you the credit you may think you deserve. Your ideas are not at all put together in a way that is understandable to most people. Your opinions and ideas are also very difficult to comprehend and your spelling is so poor it's almost unreadable. These are just some of the reasons people probably don't take you very seriously! If you wish them to do so then try and tighten up your skills...all of them.

I'm not the one who has the problem with spelling so I could hardly be considered a DA (Dumb Ass). It's obvious to me you don't care about your spelling or most anything else including that huge chip on your shoulder. You want people to take you seriously and wish to prove to them you are smart in some ways. That's kind of hard to get across when you act as you do. I don't think it's rude for me to point it out...I think it's rude of you to expect anyone to do a double take several times when they read one of your rebuttals or arguments.

Children, and by that I mean a dependent person of any age, are given Way too much credit. This works to their detriment and hampers their growth as responsible individuals. My daughter, for example, recently told me how good she was doing. This in light of several missing and late assignments and a general decline in her level of responsibility and accountability. When I pushed her on this issue, she replied, "yeah, but it is so much better than a couple of years ago. . . " (At a troubled time with a bad boyfriend, etc.) In other words, she wanted extra credit simply for not doing "so bad" rather than waiting for credit for something she truly deserved. BAH! and this seems to be the general attitude of many young people today, they have an entitlement complex, given to them by their friends and doting parents.

Well hey at least you didn't base your entire opinion on a single incident. I wish I could count the number of times young voters were condescended to by the media or other politicians for being unable to make a good decision. In fact it is these same low expectations that probably caused the problem that you referred to with your daughter.

Side: No

I don't know how old your daughter is and I would agree with some of your thoughts however, perhaps she really has been trying and it may be very difficult for her to have gotten to where she is. If you agree that she has done better over these last couple of years why not mention that you have noticed this? I'd bet it would mean a lot to her if you did. Her way of thinking of deserving credit is much different than your own right now, I'm sure. But don't let her think you're expecting too much from someone who is, perhaps, unable to give you all you wish.

Kids start thinking this way when every player in every team in every sport gets a trophy at the end of the season. No one wants to hurt anyone's feelings so they go to the other extreme and do a different kind of damage. Just wait till that generation gets handed the keys to the country. Political Correctness is destroying this country.

Adults most of the time give kids a fair share. Whenever I'm angry at an adult it's always either my fault or something i could've controlled.

I give you credit for being here and being interested. That's beans.

Just remember that you can learn a lot if you are open to it. If you think you already know it all, your sponge starts dripping, and you can't suck up any more information.

If you are well thought and sincere, then it doesn't really matter if you get credit or not - if you can really be proud of what you do. In fact, when you stop worrying about the credit and focus on what you're saying, then you start being credible.

Not really. Adults oppress children because children are generally powerless to stop them. It's human nature.

Side: No

It is human nature up to a point Jess...but some parents (adults) go a bit or way too far in treating their children so condescendingly. Kids and teens are a work in progress and I think some parents lose sight of that. Is there a kid on this earth that hasn't thought their parents are a bit lame or stupid about things?

That is all a matter of relativity. I'm 15 and at times I believe that I know more on certain subjects than my parents, however at times I feel that other adults know much more than I because they have had more experience than I have. But in a more litteral sense adults typically are smarter because they have had a more complete education than we have.

Side: yes

I agree with what you said, but sometimes it is not more education that makes adults seem smarter. I know lots of people with lots of education and they can still be "stupid" when it comes to people skills or other issues which they are not educated on. I think that it is more life experience and a different perspective than a younger person that makes them smarter.

Side: yes

Ask yourself why they ignore you locke? Yes, some kids are smarter than adults at times about certain things but certainly not in all things. You will have your say when you get a bit older or learn the skills you need to get along with people without tearing them apart. I don't know what your school petitions have to do with anything but perhaps you'd care to explain.
