Teenage is the "imbetween age"
teens are too old to act childish
yet they are too young to be considered adults.
Teens are often stereotyped as being rebellious and "bad". Some are, Some are not.
Why do you think teens are stereotyped? What is the general description that comes to mind when one thinks of teens? Why is there this constant battle between Teens and old(er) people? is it justified?
teens...what is your description of a teen. do you fit those characteristics? have you been treated differently because you are a teen?
adults...what do you think of teens? what were you like as a teen? as an adult and as being a teen once (loong long ago) why do you think society..mainly adults...view teens they way they are viewed? o you agree/disagree?
these are some general questions to get everyone thinking...you can talk about more than what i have included and you dont have to talk about everything i mentioned either
i would like to dedicate this thread to my dearest sweetest old(er) friend aparna di and to all my fellow pesky teens out thereEdited by Aparna_BD - 13 years ago
Teenagers can be very moody aswell and have quite a few mood swing, however in defence of teenagers I blame the hormones It all depends on the company you keep at the end of the day. Primary and secondary socialisation are immensely important in a childs life and those that respect dictators etc are the ones who have been misguided.
I know what you mean Aparna about those teenagers that have no respect for other religions, cultures etc. I'm part of an equal opportunities commity and I have to be honest and say I sometimes get disheartened and feel negative about everything, because some of the views that teenagers hold are not nice. It's all down to ignorance.
Teenagers are carefree because they dont have the burden of responsibility. I dont like the fact that some adults think that every single person younger than them should listen to them
I think I'll shut up now(im trying to avoid doing my coursework!)

I think this is a very Asian mentality. I somehow hate it too. Its
called being "patronizing"!!!!! People think the older you are , more
I honestly believe in "knowledge". I respect a teanager who
can debate with me with knowledge and back up their statements with
proof. It shows to me they are well researched and know what they may
be talking about. I have tean debators (some times older) that make
arbitary statement and can't back them up with research
