Myths About Teenagers
I am 15 years old and often hear a lot of myths about teenagers that just simply is not true. Give us a break.
Teenagers get serious hate for things that no one does. As a teen myself, I really hate when these myths are thought to be true by adult, especially when assumptions are made without any proof.
These are my five least favourite UNTRUE myths about teenagers:
- We are all moody, all the time. Okay this one is a given, anyone who has ever come into contact with a teenager ever has to know that we are not all sullen and moody 24/7. Of course, I get moody on occasion, but that’s just hormones, stress and annoying siblings getting to me.
- We are still children. This one is the absolute worst. Yes we aren’t adults but we definitely aren’t children. It is so frustrating to be treated the same as the ten-year olds and twelve-year olds that surround me.
- We are all lazy. So not true. I might not always WANT to do something but that doesn’t mean I can’t. I love exercising and reading and writing and doing a lot of other things. Laziness is something that some teens have, but not all.
- We are all messy slobs. This one actually makes me laugh because my brother has decided he is a teenager now because he doesn’t want to keep his room clean. Well, my room is clean all the time and I go through and rearrange it regularly. I like having my space clean and neat.
- We hate you. Not true. We all love our parents and our siblings (even if we pretend otherwise). We aren’t all hateful beings who don’t like anyone. Quite the contrary, most teenagers say they love their friends daily without hesitation.
