Teen Scene

Monday, July 18, 2005
Just consider how tough it must have been to put up with the attitude dished out by 1930s teens:

The superiority complex prevents many adolescents from listening carefully while their mothers and fathers address them, and from answering intelligently and truthfully questions put to them. Sometimes they omit the word 'Mother' or 'Father' from 'Yes, Mother,' 'No, Mother,' 'Yes, Father,' 'No, Father.'

No one can be admitted to the Fellowship of the Well-bred who is rude or patronizing to parents or to older people. Boys and girls are judged very severely by their attitude to their elders.
