Adults vs. Adolescents

As an observant teen I have noticed the amount of tension created between adults and teenagers. Whether it be a child and a parent, a student and a teacher, or just opinionated strangers.

We could probably blame stereotypes like the sociopathic, ‘missunderstood’ tennage image that is distorded in the minds of conservative adults. But, what needs to be considered is the amount of maturity and respect coming from BOTH sides of the ‘arguement’.

When around a group of adults, i tend to show my more mature and intellectual self. I have a dry sense of humor and tend to appreciate the conversation more than expected. At times it can be difficult to split myself. Needing to be a self-controlled young lady and wanting to be a spontaneous, innappropriate child (while i still can).

Basically, before assuming adults are boring and adolescents are ignorant, appreciate what you can learn, We can learn so much about ourselves and eachother if we give people, no matter the age, a chance to express and connect with one another.

One of the many steps in becoming the ideal society.

adults that are boring and don’t appreciate your spontaneity are just dead inside, kick them like a bad habit

real adults will act like a kid along with you because they know not to take themselves too seriously
