Do Parents Really Know Best?

I have heard "I am your mother/father so I know what is the best for you" countless times. Do you really agree with it? Please share your views!

I don't think they know best. They are just more mature and experienced. Nobody is perfect, therefore they do make mistakes too smtimes but it is their role to guide their kids. But smtimes, pple u call kids are just as smart and experienced these days. so, i won't say they know best. It's just their given duty to guide and lead their kids.

Why would parents always know best? Are they Gods or superhuman beings? Parents are just grown-up kids!

Just as cute-Bottom summarised!! A lot of hurts can be avoided if people hearken to the voice of their parents but that doesn't mean they are almighty, all-knowing. They've got more insight and experience.

  90% of the time they do. What's the point learning from personal experience when I can just hearken to sound counsel and be safe especially considering the fact that some mistakes have life-long consequences and are irrevocable. 90% of the pain and misery many of us go through are outrightly unnecessary and avoidable. . but hey! what do old school Papa/Mama know?. . .

yea they do a bit because they got more experience than the children, but this does not mean they are perfect, because no one's perfect we all make mistakes.
