Teens are eviilllllllll.....!
Remember when you were a teenager, plauged by acne, school, and the stress of fitting in to the tiny world around you. Remember all the regretable decisions you made; looking back now and thinking why did i do such a stupid thing!
Maybe this myTake is a little biased because of my teen-boppyness but perhaps their is something to learn from this take...
Teens brains are wired differently from adults in many factors:
Risk vs reward
Because teens have a different style of information processing, Reyna argues. They may get lost in the details about specific risks and overly focused on possible rewards, while ignoring the overall “gist” of the problem — source 1
purhaps this is why teens seem to engage in risky behavior such as talking back to parents, skipping school, doing drugs etc. Because we see the reward greater than the risk especially when lost in the moment of peer pressure and fights.
although this doesn't mean our behavior is excussable, it isn't out of spite and complete lack of respect for our authorities 😋.Take this however you will.
Many parents claim us teens act like the sky is falling, but what might seem like nothing to perfect adults like yourself is a whole different thing to us.
By some estimates, human brain development and connectivity is not fully completed until about the age of 25. ....
During healthy teenage brain development the prefrontal cortex communicates more fully and effectively with other parts of the brain, including ares particularly associated with emotion and impulses. The cluster of functions that center in the prefrontal cortex is sometimes called the "executive suite," including calibration of risk and reward, problem-solving, prioritizing, thinking ahead, self-evaluation, long-term planning, and regulation of emotion. - source 2
This makes it hard for us to handle complex situations and high levels of stress. We tend to panic under stress and have a hard time fixing that overwhelmed feeling. So it helps if parents become more involved in helping us through our emotions and school life.
What inspired me to do this take was the millions or humorous commercials depicting teens as foul nasty little trolls that eat weed for breakfast just to skip school and party at night.
Obviously this isn't all teens
However their is somethivg magical about being so hated and steeyotyped as a teenager, almost like a super villan. So adults hate us more because it fules our fire of believing we are weird mysterious creatures that noone understands that we are scary and rebelious like a pack of unicorns ready to charge..... Maybe we are just unicorns in disguise
