By RANDOLPH E. SCHMID, AP Science Writer – Mon Apr 5, 9:33 pm ET

Quote:
WASHINGTON – It turns out grandma was right: Listen to your elders. New research indicates they are indeed wise — in knowing how to deal with conflicts and accepting life's uncertainties and change.

It isn't a question of how many facts someone knows, or being able to operate a TV remote, but rather how to handle disagreements — social wisdom.

And researchers led by Richard E. Nisbett of the University of Michigan found that older people were more likely than younger or middle-aged ones to recognize that values differ, to acknowledge uncertainties, to accept that things change over time and to acknowledge others' points of view.

Quote:

when he and my friend's dad agreed that women shouldn't have sex before marriage.
