um...... i know a bunch of older people who dont hate teenagers..... in fact i think that the oldest people tend to kind of like teenagers... maybe reminds them of their youth?? but like for adults my parents ages... i think they just react negatively to teenagers becasue they are different from them.... and they dont like the change... they may think they know better....idk...

generally because adults know better from experience. They see things from a different (mature) perspective, so of course, they know what's foolish and what's not. I wouldn't really say they "hate" teenagers but rather, are compelled to reprimand. I agree with davie, the more senior folks tend to be nicer and understand youngsters better than their middle-aged counterparts. Guess it also has something to do with like, older people mellowing down and aren't as temperamental anymore.

Well, adults often dislike teenagers because of how very ignorant we are towards everyone/everything. Many of us believe that we know more about life than anyone else that it often irks the older adults because they've had actual life experience and know what actions cause which consequences and that makes them think that teenagers just cause trouble and don't know a single bit of information about anything because they are so "ignorant". Senior citizens, on the other hand, aren't as compelled to prove the younger generation wrong and they don't get as flustered by teenagers because they understand where teens are coming from because they once used to be young to (they're much older age cause them to reflect more about their past than the more middle-aged adults do because senior's lives are almost over with) so they're not as tempermental as they were in the past.

Hopefully, this helped a bit(:

kay so here's, by me, older people's opinion:
-Teenagers are still kids(which, you have to admit, we are cause some are no more mature than a 2 year old), they have problems with they behavior and with almost everything they do and they don't remember how hard it was to them(teenagers are always unconsciously changing their behavior from time to time because they're just trying to find themselves, which is mostly forbidden by parents so they act rebel-ish to, sort of, stand up to them).
Parents don't want their kids to make the same little mistakes they did, but youth is all about mistakes, so we can learn from our own ones! They say they've got experience, but they often don't let kids go through the same experence(good or bad) because they don't want them to get hurt, which is fine at THAT moment, but then later, they get mad for teenagers not knowing anything in experience! So basically they don't understand it's always a mix up in their mind that leads them to that, and also a bad memory..
But everyone's right, not everyone hates teenagers, and they should really give us a chance even as a kid or as a human that's mature enough to talk to

Because old people tend to be much less accepting, growing up in a time period where conformity was a large contributing factor to teenage life. Nowadays if ONE kid does something bad, ALL kids are blamed. They tend to think the same ways about ethnic groups and minorities.

But don't you think it's quite unfair that they think ALL teenagers are bad- i mean i dunt smoke drink or would want to in the future.. But still everytime old people see someone in a hoodie they jump to conclusions such as we're moggers or something.... I think they miss being young and just tend to rub their emotions at us lool.
