    Mum knows best is the most none sense phrase, so why is it so common?

    I've seen life destroyed because of it. The term believe, even if u are an incompetent moron, only competent in screwing things up for people, in relationship to ur child, not only would u not screw things up, but if he/her listen to u, greatness would be achieve and u can help him/her to resolve anything, because "u are mum". I would love to see a woman that can't even manage her own finance, been able to manage their kids finance well, just because she is "mum" or she can't even read and her medical diagnose definitely right and her doctor kid must be wrong because "she is mum"

    Generally speaking "Mother knows best" or "Father knows best" are phrases geared towards children and teenagers who oftentimes convince themselves they're smarter than their parents.
    The reality is the children/teens lack the maturity and life experience  to view circumstances in their entirety or access the possible consequences of their actions. They're na├»ve in ways of the world.
    "They don't know what they don't know."
    Most teens don't believe their parents know anything about dating or mate selection They just see their parents as putting up obstacles to keep them from being happy.  At age 16: "He's my soul-mate mom!"
    The same can be said when it comes to patience, prioritizing education, establishing a career, and being fiscally responsible.
    The only way a child proves their mother or father doesn't know better is by moving out of their household and flourishing on their own! Being self-reliant and independent is proof of maturity.

    It's a generalization, specifically and old adage. Just as you've observed some cases which deny the truth of this saying, many more have observed cases that confirm it.

    Mum doesn't always know best but generally has more sense than her kid.
