I think there is just a short time, from about 14 or 15 until 18 or 19 when they think you're an idiot. Then they realize you were right about just about everything.drc said:I started taking Tae Kwon Do classes this past July. My 14 yr old son has been at it for over 3 yrs, and is coming up on his black belt test in Feb. It has proven to be a way for me to stay connected with him. Anything I can do to delay the day that he determines I'm an idiot is worth doing.
