Parents have the hardest time when their children begin to grow up: many adults remember the transitional age with a shudder.
- 1. Girls look very mature.
- 2. Freedom of expression.
- 3. Other purposes.
- 4. They think creatively.
- 5. Want to be free.
However, it should be understood that today’s youth is very different from the previous generation, because the guys grew up in completely different conditions.
Psychologists have listed 5 facts about modern teenagers who will help parents better understand their children:
1. Girls look very mature.
They grew up on social networks and video hosting sites, where all the popular models and bloggers wear their make-up very brightly. Young fans take an example from them, which is why they begin to look too old.
2. Freedom of expression.
Teenagers find completely different ways to stand out and attract attention. And not always the chosen methods will please parents.
Bright hair, makeup-inducing, “flashy” clothes – all this will just have to be experienced.
3. Other purposes.
Unfortunately, most teenagers do not see the point in studying well and choosing a prestigious profession. Their idols lead a secular life and do not shine with high intellectual abilities, undermining the significance of education itself.
The guys believe that to achieve such a beautiful and easy life, a diploma of higher education is not useful.
4. They think creatively.
However, there are also positive aspects of growing up in the age of the Internet: they can quickly find the information they need and their approach is always creative.
5. Want to be free.
For previous generations, there were certain authorities that could not be let down. For a modern teenager, neither parents nor teachers are role models.
They aim to be free from everything – rules, stereotypes, imposed opinions.
