General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) might be an actor that a lot of people look up to, but it looks like he has to work extra hard to convince his son, Graham Parker Stuart, that he knows what he’s talking about! The actor made it no secret that he is struggling to communicate with his teenage son, as many parents do at that stage. Here’s what you need to know.
Parents Aren’t That Dumb, Are They?
The handsome actor wrote on his Twitter account, “I am so looking forward to the day that my 17-year-old realizes I’m not as clueless as he currently thinks I am.”
Clearly, a lot of James’ fans can relate to him! As much as celebrities likes to talk about the ups an downs of parenting with their children are still babies and toddlers, let’s face it: nothing prepares you for those pre-teen or teen years. Now that’s when the going gets tough! You can change a toddler’s diaper, but you certainly can’t change a teenager’s attitude. And if you try, it’s going to take a lot of work!
James Stuarts’ Fans Have His Back
A lot of James’ fans commented on his tweet with, “Does such a day exist? Asking for a mom of a 35, 32, 30 and 28 year old,” along with, “That will happen right about the time he is your age with a 17 year old of his own!”
Another fan wrote, “That will be awhile. All youngster think adults are stupid and behind on the times. I remember when I used to think that myself and as I grew up I realized the wisdom contained in the older ones around me. I still marvel at it.”
