Fall on deaf ears:

Meaning: ignoring something.

Example: Rachel said, “Stop advising him when he is on his way out of home. It always falls on deaf ears. He is preoccupied and is thinking about the exam.”

Rachel’s husband said, “I wish he would study consistently throughout the year instead of pressurizing himself at the last minute.”

Rachel knew that her son would learn from his mistakes and simply smiled at her anxious husband.
