Teenagers not all rebels?!

close

Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

An amazing revelation from today’s Independent:

They enjoy quiet nights at home and view their parents as friends. Welcome to the world of today’s “mild child” teenagers.

It turns out that not all teenagers are binge-drinking antisocial idiots, but that the vast majority are normal, reasonable human beings.

Perhaps someone should tell the Daily Mail (current top story on their website: Posh and Becks fail to smile whilst strolling through St Mark’s Sqaure surrounded by paparazzi), who prefer quotes like “Teenagers [posess] pea-sized brains”, “Teenagers are mentally challenged” and “Oral sex drive for teenagers”. That’s when they’re not talking about teenage pregnancy, and simultaneously criticising those who have abortions and those who don’t, and thus become teenage parents. And they say Labour has no coherent policies on anything.
