This argument that "they have experienced more" is invalid in my opinion. That one path they chose to take in life is not the universal and only true path to enlightenment and wisdom. That path they took has allowed them to experience only a very small fraction of what the universe has to offer. There are people out there (older and younger than the parents and even possibly their own kids) who have had experiences that may have been more profound and had more to offer than the paths the parents took. Many parents (And any other so called "authority") these days need to be humble and realize that everyone has something valuable to offer when it comes to wisdom, regardless of gender, color, status, education, age etc. because all of us are experiencing different things.
