Does someone's age excuse them from bad behaviour? Aka, if someone is younger than you and shows rude behaviour which you point out to them, is it immature if you to "pick on someone younger than you"?

(Generally) yes, you should let them be because they don't know any better and it can be harmful to correct them
4%
(Generally) no, they have to learn that their behaviour is not correct, only then will they actually make better decisions when older

I can't say yes or no, I know kids with aspbugers can be hard to deal with. they rub off from others.
so when an aspie is disrespectful, it's because they feel disrespected, when they are defiant  they just have something to say, but since aspie's think way for from someone who doesn't
it's hard to know what they mean. but when u think from an aspie's view you'd be very surprised.
I know cuz I have aspbugers, along with adhd, so i'm hard to understand.

No..the kid needs to learn what there doing isnt right,using negative emotions like whining,or being annoying,

I think that they need to learn that their behavior is not OK, but don't be mean about it.

No, of course you should stay reasonable yourself :P

Generally No and we all live in the same world and grow up eventually. We all learn from our mistakes one way or the other.

Indeed! It'd be wrong to try and stop that learning.

Nope. When I'm on xbox live and there is a little kid gaming if he starts whining over anything we make it a point to explain that whining will not get you your way. No need to be mean or rude at all, but it never hurts to explain there are better ways of expressing yourself.

 That's just one example, and that works for about anything. However, it would be rude to do such a thing while their parents are around.

Indeed!

Hm, if a child is being super rude to you and the parents are not doing any attempt to stop them it might be best to explain that you don't like that behaviour anyway. Some parents might feel insulted, sure, but if they tolerate their child to be rude, they are a bad example for them.

In that situation I turn my attention to the parents. I will tell them they need to control their child if they don't do anything and he is directly insulting or bothering me.

When I was younger I accidentally did the middle finger not knowing it was bad nor what it meant. And no my parents don't do it.

no, they need to learn what they did wrong, but if you are insulting and telling THEM rudely to shut up and mind their place, and maybe be ageist, then you're in the wrong

Of course, insulting is never the right way and if you need insults to point out someone's bad behaviour you might have to rethink your own behaviour :P
