MR KNOW IT ALL

do any of you have a child or children that are know it all that just love to correct you and would even argue there point cuz in there heads it is how they see it? or maybe sometimes you might be wrong and your child corrects you?
my mother loves my kids so much but my son drives her crazy she is the kind of person that hates with a passion when a child corrects her...i think it's funny cuz my son holds his ground and she gets frustrated and mad always ends up threatening to ground him...lol it makes good live tv...

  • My 12 yr old corrects everyone, me, his siblings and even teachers! The scary part is when he is right, especially with the teachers.

  • my step daughter does this, she's normally wrong. which upsets me more because her mom lets her think she's correct, when she's not.

  • Hey, we're all entitled to our opinions. But my 17 yr old son loves to try to prove me wrong. I always remind him that there is more than one way to do anything. His way isn't always right, and I can honestly say that I'm not always right either. Sometimes he has a point, and sometimes I do too. The funny thing is, in the common sense department, he lacks it sometimes.
