Is it possible to educate or inform someone who is not willing to receive it?


There is a surprising number of people in this world that don't want to acknowledge, let alone take heed of common or new knowledge. When presented with a better way (saves time, effort, money, pain), they choose to do as they always did even to their own detriment.

    This is very true. It's got to be painful for parents to watch the child get their "experience" even while they warn their kids out of their own personal experience and knowledge.

    Quite often I find people want to talk about problems and pains rather than solutions. Anything they haven't come up with is just wrong or silly in their opinion.

    No, riot act view has been taken. You have made very good points. It's smart to never appoint yourself educator, doing so only offends. How do you handle people who want to talk about problems but NEVER solutions or different approaches?
