    Stop arguing.

    If someone said to me "chocolate is so good." I would agree with them. I wouldn't say "but its not all about chocolate. Vanilla, raspberry, coconut and lime are also important and sometimes it depends on the situation. its not just about chocolate". Right??
    yes i agree hard work is vital in all aspects of life. i do believe i do work hard.
    the thing in life is you cant just out all blame on on part and label is as answer. that having a one track mind

    Well...what do you want? Whats more important - to stop the constant arguments? Or to try to change their mind. This is not a hill to die on. Just agree with them and move on to a different subject. You want good relations with your family members and its not a subject work straining that to win an argument over (although this is an opinion subject, so there is no real winner).
