The holier then thou tone of adults.
Why? I have always wondered why some adults think we are the spawns of every religions demon while they are the children of every religions god? As if their generation was picture perfect.

Unsure am I allowed to post here? Lol kick me out if I'm not!

I think it's about change, the older you get the harder it is sometimes to deal with change. There's just so much of it. Time seems to speed up the older you get, so change seems to happen quicker as well. Also part nostalgia for the way things used to be.

Because they have this notion that they know better (and most of the time, they are right).

It's not age, but experience that matters. I've been forced to grow up a lot more than a normal kid my age, but all some people see are the numbers of my birthday, not what I have lived through.

Yes but wasn't everybody once bad? What generation is better then the other? In fact what is better from something like the 80's 90's or 70's they were better than us? The difference is sir is that they generations that made fun of them are old and in the shadows now. So something that was said to be evil (i.e, metal and rap) is now good because it comes from the 80's because the teens listening to that then are adults now. Like smercury said it is because of change. Many of us that are teens now will say the same about the next generation.

I doubt I will.

Each generation has it's ups and downs.

I on the other hand can't say. I mean there is thisConfused





But I agree, there is no perfect generation, now only if some adults can realize that.

RE: The holier then thou tone of adults.
I think they see all of the tools and gadgets that we have that make life efficient, and say we're lazy and narcissistic because we have these tools that make life so easy.
I think they forgot the line between laziness and efficiency.
Also, the older ones are probably confused and angered that about no one uses the traditional methods they have used all of their life, and they are confused about the new methods of social interaction and what is acceptable and what is not.

Insulting me will convert me real fast!
MSBB:
Don't let anyone define who you are.
Me:
Can we define him as he defines himself? Or will he define himself as we define how he defines himself? But, if we do that, will we define him as he defines himself based on our definition of how we see him define himself?

I like this input. Unfortunately I have no input at weather you are a teen or not. If you aren't I banish you to the adult playground.
