Why most younger people(18-30 age range) are usually so less tolerant of my childish behavior compared to middle aged and old people?

I have always noticed that middle aged and old people don't care much and are more tolerant to my childish behavior and behave nice to me and say me politely to act more matured whereas the younger ones especially in my age range(18-21) usually lose patience easily because I act immature and silly and they end up ignoring me or being rude to me. Why is it that way?

People hold their peers to the highest standard.
Middle age (that's me) and older - we just see 18 to 21 as "kids being kids".

I know when I see someone in my age group (about 40 to 50) acting stupid because of their mid-life crisis, it gets on my nerves.

Like when I see some fat, balding, 40 something year old man on a motorcycle blasting that nasty rap music, it is like, "Dude, grow up, we are not "cool" anymore."

Maybe because older people may have had kids and understand younger people better.
Often, patience comes with age, along with the remembrance of one’s own silliness as a child.
