Oh my goodness this is funny, They do know everything actually. They were your age once they understand. Kids think they don't but truth is they do. Your just angry, i'm guessing something didn't go your way. If/when you have kids then you'll understand.
I know it seems like they don't know what's best and they don't understand, but the majority of the time, they really do. It's hard for teenagers to understand because they don't have the maturity that adults do. If your parents have forbidden you from doing something or are making you do something, try to understand why. Stop and think and ask them for their reasoning and perhaps you'll be able to understand.
Hahaha!! Well i used to say that about 4 years ago! But when i became an adult, moved out and took on full responsabilities of my life, i realized my parents knew what they were talking about, and i thank them all the time even though it pains me lol!
I do not think it is always a matter of parents think they know best. I think it is more of a matter of parents trying to do their best with what they have experienced and making the best of what knowledge they have from these experiences. Children and other people do not come with instructions and even if they did, not everyone is the same. You can come from a family of 100 kids who were all raised by the same parents, with the exact same principles for each child and not one of those children will behave or react the same way or even have the same characteristics. Just try to understand that if a parent is trying to place restrictions on you, that it is not because they are trying to ruin your life, it is because they want you to have life.
They may not know everything but they know more than you, like it or not, and in most cases they do know whats best for you. You are young. Just by this question alone we can see that much. Your brain still has a lot of maturing to do which means your decisions are still immature. It is a parents job to at least try to protect you from poor, immature choices that may have bad consequences for you later on.
Because they do know whats best for us!!! They've been here, done this. They have much more experience in life than we do so far. Therefore, they know the consequences of things and really do know what's best for us. :)
Ah, I remember my parents telling me that youth is wasted on the young. My Mom used to tell me that anything I think about trying, she's already done. And you know what? She was right! Parents usually DO know everything. it's only when you grow up that you realise that they were right all along! Try to remember that 1 - they have your best interest in mind. 2 - they have already experienced what you are going through. 3 - try trusting them. 4 - be open with them and ASK questions. No subject should be taboo. 5 - if you are a parent, remember that you used to think that you knew all of the answers, too. Like I said in #4 - no subject should be taboo. Listen to your children, and be honest with them. Give an example what you've experienced to explain WHY you know the right answers! 6 - cut each other some slack. TALK, TALK, TALK!

Bond, I want to thank you for this question. Every few weeks somebody asks, "What was the funniest/silliest/dumbest question ever asked on this site and I keep a list of the most recent ones so that I can answer it. This one is going onto that list for next time.
It's called "Experience" in life... Hey youngster, you will say the "Old" people were right once you have kids and deal with their crap like what your parents are going through with you now. Young and dumb,! One day you will grow out of it and thank all of us "Older Experienced " parents.

for my opinion i agree with you parents dont know every thing but they now more then you because they have lived longer and have experience more thing then you and know whats correct and whats wrong because they were kids once and they now !
Are you still able to walk, talk, eat and laugh? Then your parents know what they are doing! "Don't hate the player, hate the game" is what my kids say when they don't get their way and I preach it right back to them when they get mad because I said "NO" to whatever stupid idea they came up with. If you can't come up with at least one good reason why your parents should let you do something, then you don't need to do it!
