Ain’t I A Teenager?

Intro Sample...


Well, children, fellow teens and anyone else who happens to be here listening to me. Where there is much racket there must be something out of kilter. I believe that between parents always misjudging and grownups frequently misunderstanding the teenagers of this generation, they’ll be in a fix soon. But what’s all of this talking really about?
The older people always say that teenagers are irresponsible, that they shouldn’t be trusted with specific tasks. But I have a job. I work and make money just as they do. And ain’t I a teenager? I always make sure to complete my homework for school on time. And ain’t I a teenager? My mom usually has me buy my own things and pay for things with my own money. And ain’t I a teenager? At school, I used to be a student aid. Delivering passes and doing other jobs for the school to help it run smoothly. And ain’t I a teenager?
Then they talk about this action of a typical teen, what do they call it? Sleeping? That’s it. How does sleeping all day make teens lesser human than grownups? If I have to take a day off where I just sleep all day, then I should have the right to do so. As a teen in high school, I wake up early every day for school; I do gymnastics for a sport and work at a grocery store. Why should I feel guilty or lazy when I sleep all day when my very busy schedule and routine requires me to sleep so much?
Then the grownups claim that allrdor teenagers have a cell phone and or iphone, that all they do is text and send messages to each other all day. Where is my cell phone? Where is my cell phone? I don’t even have a cell phone let alone text all day. I am a teenager who has better things to do in his time.
Thank you all for listening to my speech! And God bless. View More »

    ADD was first identified and studied in the early 1900's, although it wasn't called ADD back then. After World War I, researchers noted that children who had contracted encephalitis displayed a high incidence of hyperactivity, impulsivity, and conduct disorders. And in the 1940's, some soldiers who had experienced brain injuries were found to have behavioral disorders.1 It seemed clear that brain damage could cause hyperactivity. Other forms of brain insult have since been identified as causes of hyperactivity, including exposure to lead and other environmental toxins, as well as fetal e

But we have been and will be many different people in our lifetime; an infant, a child, a teenager, a young adult, a mature person, and an aged person. Young children understand their worlds in ways that are so different from adults. To understand ourselves fully, we must understand the process of development, the more-or-less predictable changes in behavior associated with increasing age. Both nature and nurture work tog
