Teenagers not all rebels?!

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.
