  • I'm not sure, but I knew it ALL when I was a teenager! Now that I'm 30 I realize how much I don't know....Ugh! I wish I could go back to being a teen for just one day so I can live just one more day knowing everything!!

  • Because they're teens and their brains aren't developed enough to know just how much they don't know. Give them about 10 years and they'll realize how stupid they were at 16-17-18.

  • because they so badly want to be free adults, that they think they know how to act the part by pretending they know everything.

  • They do not know it all just 10 times what we know.
