    I find it hard to just dismiss them though. I'm usually a very gentle natured, easy going person. However, they are about 3 things that just make me lose it, and these types of girls are one of them!
    Agreed.

    Unfortunately, in their world, they are always right, and it doesn't matter who says it's not... because what do older people know? Nothing, obviously. Problem is, when they group together and get it in their heads that they're against something, it's pretty durn hard to change their minds, collectively I mean. Especially the snotty ones, or the ones that are the "ring leaders."
    I find it extremely rude, to say the very least.
    I'm glad grade school is way behind me, I don't miss those days at all.


    Having said all this, I know I was a snotty teen, and my mom is waiting for the day I have to deal with my kids...

    I think everyone has to go through it. I'm sure I was a know it all kid. I don't remember being that way (voted most freindly and president of my senior class) but I'm sure my mom would say I was.
    My niece sure went through it and was a real handful for my sister. She is a lovely 26 year old women now so hopefully they get over it.

    Heh I know im a snotty teen. But only when it comes to some things. Like sometimes at our 4h riding meetings we have a trainer come in. Well she is an Arabian trainer. I ride my QH at those meetings. She always tells me to tighten up my reins always always. Im like "no that is not how I trained my horse, I will not tighten up my reins". Me and that lady do not get along. I have listened to her a few times and it has set me back a couple months on him So now I just don't go to the meetings she is at.

    Other times when my mother tries to tell me how to train my horse when she has only ridden a horse once and her life. I get snotty with her.

    I really only get snotty when people try to tell me how to work my horses, or when they insult my training. That gets under my skin.

    But then I question everything my mom tells me. Like lets say I sweap the living room differently then she does, yet its still gets cleaned. She makes me do it again, I argue over that. Or when get a snow day she never lets me /sleep in too late/ because I should be up moving. That's when I hang up on her. I wake up everyday at 5 in the morning even weekends because on weekends I ride at 7 in the morning and I have school during the week. Her excuse is always "you should just do it because im your mother and I say so". No that doesn't cut it for me. Yes I know life is unfair, but that just irks me.

    Then the whole "messy room" thing. My room is never clean, but my stalls and barn are. I work my butt of everyday keeping my barn nice, I feel I should be able to keep my room how ever I want it. Yes I realise I didn't pay for it, but I do sleep in it. Im the one who deals with it not her. She calls me irresponsible because my room is a mess. She says I have a messy life and crappy life because my room is a mess. Now that is when I get snotty.

    I think its just life phases. If you have ever taken a psych101 class and read anything on Eriksons psychosocial lifes stages it really makes sense. I know when I was in my teens I was a slob about my room. In my 20-30's It was "my stuff" in my place and kept everything neat and tidy in my apartment. When 40-50 hits I realized how unimportant all the "stuff" is not saying I'm a slob again but I'm not as meticulous in my housework as I used to be. That's my excuse anyway

    I think I would expand it to include anyone (not just teenagers) who thinks they know everything irritates me. I mean, can anyone really ever know everything?

    I like it when people are open to the fact that other people just might know more than they do, and also that maybe there's a better way of doing things than the way they're currently doing it.

    As far as teens are concerned, I don't necessarily think I was a "know it all" teen, but I do know that I made my mom's life difficult for awhile!

    I went thru the know-it-all stage for about 6 months right after I turned 16. And it wasn't with everyone just with my mom! (Sorry Mommy!! )

    that's so funny I think all women should apologize to their mothers. Girls seem to be hardest on their moms at that age. We should set aside a day to honor the moms in our life....Oh wait we do, Mothers Day
    I agree with nike there are know it all types of all ages. Should we tell them, or just let them ramble on?

    Haha...

    I tell my mom sorry everytime we start talking about my teenages years.

    My older sister is going thru what I went thru when I was 16 (she's a late bloomer) and I feel so sorry for my mom! I always tell my sister "Don't you think that I put mom thru enough when I was young?"

    Poor Mommy, had to deal with me and now my sister..lol. Acutally she had 5 girls so she had to go thru it 5x.

    I went through the know it all stage, and then the extremely rebellious stage. I feel sorry for my parents. They had to deal with a lot from me. But I actually think that me moving out actually helped in a strange way. My parents were against it, but I think now they really cherish the time they spend with me now. And I don't fight with my mom anymore either.
    Yeahh I was a bad kid sometimes But I have since grown up I just hope my kids aren't like that

    Last year for mother's day, I got her a hummel statue. (She collects them) And I forget the saying, but it was cute, very cute. I made her cry too. But it was the good type of crying.
