Top Ten Reasons Being a Teenager Sucks
The Top Ten
When I was 6 it was 6 hours
Calling it torture is a bit of an exaggeration because torture is being burned and skinned alive, but it is definitely one of the cons of being a teenager. - 3DG20
I am 10 turning 11 and my school has 9 hours of pure torture per day so...
This also applies to children, not just teenagers.
Anime is awesome
But it’s their opinion. I kinda like anime too but you still gotta respect opinions here. - AlphaQ
Most of the time I hear them listen to horrible bland rap music.
I probably listen to overrated rock songs. hehe. I just really like them.
Or the “yeah, uh huh” rap. To be honest though, I’m one of those teenagers that listen to overrated rock bands, but they’re only overrated because of a few songs while most of their others (which are usually better than the overrated ones) don’t even get much attention by their fans. A lot of pop artists can make the worst songs and it’ll still be overrated because it’s from them. - 3DG20
So? You live because of your parents. They raise you! - Userguy44
Unless you have been abused by your parents or the like, be thankful you live under a roof. That's one right people still struggle for. - Swellow
Depends on how your parents treat you.
I am truly tired of living with my parents. My mom told me that she would've dropped me off at the side of the highway to get rid of me if it was legal. - Kaboom
I have nothing against anyone who thinks homework is helpful, but I think that those who say that have never heard of the word "Deperession"
Quality homework is a billion times more important than quantity. - AlphaQ
How are you going to improve your grades, then? You want to get into university and finish off your education that could land you with a job? Homework is a necessity that helps people improve their grades. I'm sure you weren't thinking when putting this item onto the list. - Swellow
Homework is a violation of free will, a basic human right. - Kaboom
It’s more annoying when they try to act like fans of those bands and can’t name more than 3 songs. - 3DG20
I don't know what goes on in your teenage life but I don't think that's true - MrGuyDudeMan
Actually, if you don't have a phone, then you are less likely to be cyberbullied - TwilightKitsune
Sometimes. - EliHbk
I want my parents to leave me alone and let me have a life. They're idiots anyway.
So true. You want to get out there and explore. Live your own life. Fall in love without them interfering. Go out whilst having no one that's going to call you if it's late. Society has decided that suddenly we become adults once we become 18. And even then we still live with our parents... At least we can drive at this point.
You don't realise how lucky you are. Who do you turn to at the first sign of trouble? Your first heartbreak, etc...it's selfishness. You want them around as long as it suits you. You are still a teenager, you need them (however annoying they can be sometimes) In fact, you'll find as you get older, you'll need them even more. - Britgirl
I definitely do not turn to my parents for help. The one time I did, their advice and help made the problem WORSE. - Kaboom
They ban me from having friends.
They interfere with my homework time.
They give me extra chores when I already have 10 hours of homework.
They try to hug and kiss me in public. - Kaboom
You know, the only hard part about being a teenager is.. Feeling like you want to jump the hoops right away. Parents are meant to be there as idols for you. But, honestly I find when they say this to be ridiculous. It is true, but when you are born, you really don't have any other choice but to stick with your parents in order to continue with life properly. And when you reach a certain age, you just want to live on your own, live how you want to, and having adult privileges. It doesn't seem fun to wait for about 18 years or more just to be able to get into this zone, and can be a pretty torturous wait. What's even more ridiculous is that there are strangers out there in which you want to be isolated from that will bring you even MORE torture. But yeah, I find it ridiculous how parents bring this up mainly as excuses.. You just really have no choice but to have your parents guide you in the beginning. It is even more unfair if your parents don't reward you anything for the wait to ...more
That would be like working at Mcdonalds and they pay you with happy meals. That's not pay. Parents provide this for their children anyway, so school is really just working for free. Never listen to your parents, kids. - Kaboom
Exactly, that's their excuse for no presents, etc, too! - EliHbk
They think that all teenagers are evil, and they are 3 times as annoying as usual. - Kaboom
I’m the sibling in the family who always gets ladies so my brothers are all jealous. - AlphaQ
Meanwhile, children are making shoes for sports companies and getting as little as 30 bucks. Also, school is not a job. Get your facts right. - Swellow
True,! - EliHbk
School isn’t a job though… - AlphaQ
My parents call me lazy because I do not have a full time job.
1. School is technically a full time job and I do more work than they do. (My mom's job is sitting in a classroom doing whatever she wants, my dad's job is sitting at a desk with a laptop.)
2. It is not my fault I am 13 and therefore can't get a job. - Kaboom
Popularity at school is overrated, for short, because I am too lazy to write 300 words for it. - MChkflaguard_Yt
They just bug everyone to try to be their friend. Why don't they realize that this is why they are so unpopular. - Kaboom
Wow! You’re popular. How many of those people that “love” you know anything about you again? - 3DG20
Here’s some advice:
Be unique and have your own style. People will admire eventually. You’ll be more popular if you have your own style and not always follow trends. - AlphaQ
Lol I never had a girlfriend. I think I don't deserve one. - Userguy44
More like "you are pressured to have a girlfriend/boyfriend".
I am not allowed to have friends at all. - Kaboom
Is this a major problem? - Userguy44
Kaboom is not so bad your mom kiss you in public and I want to change mom
