Disrespectful teenagers

Do you have a hard time listening to teens be disrespectful to their parents? Do you tend to say something, or do you keep your mouth shut?

I witnessed a Facebook (yes I know, Facebook is the devil) verbal argument between my friend and her daughter. I'll spare the details, but it was so bad on the girls part that I wanted to respond on the thread. I didn't, it's not my business and I felt awkward even reading it. It was HARD not to though when she told her mom "You fail as a parent" and I know this woman busts her butt to provide for her kids.

AHHHH, getting steamed just thinking about it.

Do you guys see this in some teens too?

      My middle brother and I are very different when it comes to respecting our parents. Mainly, he will back-talk, and I never did. Since we grew up almost identically, I really have to say that his sass came from his personality. It would drive me nuts to hear him do it--in fact, it still does, and I will call his six-foot-three 22-year-old skinny butt on it if I'm there. Respect is for everyone, especially parents.

        I hate when I see teens are disrespectful to their parents! my parents taught my siblings and I to respect them and their elders. If I or my siblings said anything out of line or totally disrespectful to my parents they would punish us big time. My husband and I teach our children the same thing. I know it will be tough since my oldest son Asher is 13.
