I wish to know your thoughts on this topic. I want to know what the young kids think, and what the middle aged think, and what the elderly think.

of course not. we kids are treated like we know nothing, and have gone through nothing, because of a number.

i love kids
understand peers
curious about mid life peeps
and i call any elder i see pops or granny
i respect my elders though if they dont like me calling them pops or granny then i ask how i should adress them and do it accordingly

though people are unsure of previous or recent generations and can respond diferently towards each other

Even when they are being pompous, patronising, pains in the neck and/or a bunch of precks, good manners were burned deep in my brain enough for me to be polite to them at all costs. Pissed me off sometimes as some don't deserve it.

i saw some dude get his ass handed to him by a twelve year old once. and he's a year older than me. so, i can't really help it if i look down upon them a little, but i'm not all "I'm so much better than you" or anything. plus, that kid was crazy. i can't help but think there are more of them out there.

old people underestimate young people, and young people underappreciate old people

Old people and kids are the two most important people on this earth(besides women and children). I've watched programs in mainly Asiatic, African, and semi-rural places where they are held in high-esteem. Old people for their wisdom, children to be brought up holy. But the answer to the question is no.

I grew up in a culture where I have to listen to someone just because they are older. And many seniors don't know what they are talking about anymore. I'm glad that in the states I am allowed to tell someone if they are wrong. Yes I know senior citizens have been around longer than me so they know more about life, but times change and I have been exposed to a different environment from them.

I have always been treated with respect by the people on this forum, even though I am the same age as or older than their parents. Unfortunately, this does not apply in society at large, where I am considered ignorant by a lot of people, and past my use by date. Interviewers for jobs have assumed I am too old to learn new things, people in shops assume that not only could I not like trance, but I probably don't even know what it is. And many people can't understand that I like anime. It goes both ways, though. Lots of people my age criticise young people's clothes and music and assume they must be reckless drivers or young louts etc. Indeed I have been thought of as weird for defending young people. Some times I feel weird for not thinking like other people my age. Some have forgotten what it is like for young people, and don't realise that today's youth are the world' s future.
