Why highly and/or advanced educated parents tend to be
more tolerant and forgiving of their teenage children's rebellion than their less educated counterparts?
If that is true then I think it would have to do with the educated mind being able to more clearly see the bigger picture. The more educated we are the more the world seems to make sense and we realize there is more than just our little corner. We learn that "this too shall pass."
i do agree that educated parents are broad minded and not fickle minded at all. Those who are non educated parents are brought down by ancestors with stupid superstitions and back dated practices. Children will never improve themselves.
Perhaps one should consider that it may relate to the fact that it appears that most higher education institutes are significantly liberal in their philosophies and may just be influencing their students significantly. Thus, it may result in being more tolerant to this teenaged rebellion and more accepting...
Education brings with it understanding and with understanding comes trust. Educated parents tend to trust their children and spend time with them intellectually as well as emotionally. There will be exceptions where teens will constantly rebel regardless of their parents' education level, and the phrase, 'You can chose your friends but not your family' really comes into play in these situations. Overall though I feel education does play a part in being able to respect your teens.
It certainly does.Highly educated parents are more open minded and understanding regarding their teens rebellion & other forms of experimentation while less educated parents are unaccepting of such things.They see any these things as affronts.
I think that education helps keep the mind open to change and alternative ways of thinking or, at least, feeds a desire to research areas of uncertainty. I still believe that good parenting comes from common sense too.
Educated parents know better and do better, the less educated parents often are old-fashioned and won't see any ting form their teens point of view.
