Annoyed
Sir, I am getting increasingly
annoyed at the barrage of
articles about teenagers, and the
adults who keep trying to
explain our behaviour ("Moods
and meltdowns: what' s inside
the teenage brain?", Mar I).
I am 16 and a straighter
student, like most of my friends.
We are not as irrational and
immature as adults seem to
think We' grown up with
financial crises and accept that
most of us will be unemployed.
We no longer flinch at bloody
images of war because we'
grown up seeing the chaos in
the Middle East and elsewhere.
Most of us are cynical and
pessimistic because of the
environment we' grown up in
which should be explanation
enough for our apparent
insolence and disrespect,
without "experts" having to
write articles about it,
Has no one ever seen that we
are angry at the world we live
in? Angry that we will have to
clean up your mess, while you
hold us in contempt, analysing
our responses as though we
were another species?
I would like adults to treat us
not as strange creatures from
another world but as human
beings with intelligent thought
H a little different from yours,
perhaps, but intelligent thought
nonetheless.
Stop teaching adults how to
behave around us, and instead
teach them to respect us.
