My son insists that we, as his parents, are disrespecting him by not listening to his unsolicited advice. I disagree. I believe that he is disrespecting, and bullying us, by pressing his opinion on us. Then when he doesn't get his way, he refusing to help us by doing something that we genuinely need his help in doing . I believe that no one is obligated to listen, or do what they ask, if we don't choose to. We have a free will choice.A public official, or a member of a joint committee, is obligated to give a couple of examples. Just because you have something to say doesn't mean that you have a RIGHT to say it, or that you should.
