Top Ten Reasons Why It Sucks to Be 12

Sure, I have difficulties with being 12, but I hardly think being 13 would be any better.

The Top Ten

"Sorry, you must be at least 13 to use [website]"

Good thing I'm turning 14 this year. Oh and by the way, you could always use a fake age on these sort of sites.

I'm 12 and I have YouTube but I can't upload videos until I'm 13.12 is actually a good age to be still.-LitSavage

My cousin is 9 and she has YouTube

That's one annoying message.

No going to see a PG-13 movie by yourself

I once saw a rated r movie by myself when I was 10

You can just not in theaters.

Who cares,I saw a rated r movie when I was 9

if your parents allow you to, you can watch PG-13

"Please enter your parent's email address"

Use your own email. Parents delete these messages without reading them.

Me: *Enters my mom's email*
Mom: Ugh, another email from the school. *deletes without looking at the email*

Another annoying message...

Older kids bully you

Dear older sisters: We get it. You are now a teenager and get Facebook. Good. For. You. That is still nit an excuse to boss us around.

The situation is even worse when it's your older brother

The librarian won't let (or at least disapproves of letting) you get a teen/young adult/adult book.

I assume this is in America because of PG 13 age rating but this would never happen in the UK - Unnamed Google User Remade

YES, THE WHEEL OF TIME IS AN ADULT FANTASY BOOK, BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN I CAN'T ENJOY READING IT! I SWEAR, CHAPTER 13, BOOK 9, WAS THE MOST INAPPROPRIATE PART OF THE WHOLE BOOK SERIES. THERE WERE NO DETAILS! IT WAS NEVER SAID ALOUD, JUST IMPLIED!

You aren't viewed as mature, responsible, or trustworthy
Adults still talk about you in front of you.
You still have to order from the kid's menu at restaurants
People don't take you seriously

I am older than twelve and no one takes me seriously unless I threaten them. I am kinda smart, listen to me.

Sometimes my mom does not even take me seriously. I try to talk about something, she says "You're so cute and funny." It's so goddamn annoying. She does it to my brother too. He gets angry whenever she says that to him. I just ask "Were you even listening?"

People still call you a little kid

I am 11 years old, gonna be 12 this month (August). I hate being called a little kid so much. One time, my mom called me and my brother little kids. My brother is 13. It's so annoying.

Thank god I'm not 12 anymore.

thank God That 2020 will be Year I become 13

The Contenders

You're going through puberty
Everyone mistakes your age.

People still think I'm 16. I'm three years younger!

People think I'm 9 or 10. Gee, it's almost 12.

Lol. always. When I was nine someone thought I was 13

People usually think that I'm older than I really am,not an inconvenience until I do something immature.But yeah,being 12 sucked for me,for personal reasons too,being 13 is better even though I'm only 3 months in.

You can't drive

You have to be under +18 to drive

You are viewed as a child

That's because you still are one.

You have to go to school
You're in grade 6

Well I'm in 6,and I'm sure it will be better then 7 & 8

People see all of you as extremely immature, irresponsible and wild

This sadly doesn't change until you turn 16 or so.

You're not a teen

It's fine if your not a teen

you are a pre-teen

You have to have adult supervision for everything

Not true. I do many things unsupervised.

You're still a kid

Your not an adult till your 18

I still act a bit childish

I hate being a kid

You can't date
You can't go out in the night
You can't have sex
You get depressed

The biggest bum... #TwelveYearBlues

Everyone uses 12 as an insult

Everyone does I get very offended on a lot of websites

What are you 12?
