Yiddish: When children are young, their parents talk about how smart they are; when parents are old, their children talk about how stupid they are.

‎‎‎ווען די קינדער זײַנען יונג דערציילן די עלטערן זייערע חכמות‫;‬
‎ ווען די עלטערן זײַנען אַלט דערציילן די קינדער זייערע נאַרישקײַטן‫.‬

Ven di kinder zaynen yung dertseyln di eltern zeyere khokhmes;
ven di eltern zaynen alt dertseyln di kinder zeyere narishkaytn.

When children are young, their parents talk about how smart they are;
when parents are old, their children talk about how stupid they are.
