Now, everyone always says that you should always listen to your parents but that is not always the case. While your parents may be older and have more experience they still do not know everything.

Also, if your parents are telling you to do something that goes against what you believe you shouldn’t listen because just because you are young you can still have your own beliefs. Finally, another reason you shouldn’t listen to your parents is because sometimes they may not understand the situation like you can and they may be telling you to do something that they don’t understand the consequences.
