Disobeying elders/parents can result in serious problems

Disobeying elders/parents can result in serious problems. The stubborn and negligent attitude of the poet Pam Ayres led to serious dental problems. Explain.

Our elders and parents always advise us how to live our lives successfully and without any troubles because they have got the experience to give us such advice. When the poet’s mother advised the poet to brush her teeth regularly and properly as well as not to eat sweets and other sweet sticky food, she wanted the poet’s teeth to last a long time. But the stubborn attitude of continuing eating what she liked caused her teeth to decay. Her negligent attitude of not brushing her teeth properly also added to their decay.
