Teenagers

First of all, most teenagers are dreaming about leaving their parents home as soon as possible. But not everyone knows what might happen in that crazy world with lots of temptations. In my opinion, each of us should consider it very carefully, because after leaving home your parent will not be around and will not help you any minute. That is the reason why a teenager should leave parents home only when he is ready for it. Obviously, it happens when a teenager is a grown- up and independent to start his life on his or her own.

Without any doubts, it is very important to have good relationships with our parents. To be more precise, only our parents know us in the way we truly are and are willing to help us any time. I have a good relationship with my parents. For sure we argue sometimes but as far as I know no one is perfect in this world. Of course, my parents are doing everything to help me. For this reason I have to be a good child and listen to them.

It goes without saying that all teenagers have many responsibilities at home. I am not an exception. Obviously, not always housework is as a treatment for us. But such small details are educating our personality.

In our society teenagers are able to work when they become 16. As a matter of fact, it is very good. In this way, teenagers are able to express themselves, use their activeness or gain responsibility and independence. After all, it is a very useful experience for each of us.

In this period of time, the support and understanding from parents are very important for teenagers. Nobody is perfect and we all make , so it is very important to understand and try not to repeat them. As a result, being a teenager is one of the most beautiful experiences in our lives. It is the beginning of our future.

  1. I really enjoyed this article although my opinion on a few facts is a bit different. Not all teenagers can’t wait to leave their parents and start a life on their own. And furthermore not all teenagers want to have a job at this young age at all. And maybe I’m an exception, but my parents are my best friends and even thinking about leaving them makes me sad. But otherwise I agreed with you 100 percent.

  2. I think this article is not true for everybody. Not every teenager thinks the same. Some of them want to leave their home after university or after a few years of working.
    But it is right that teenagers should have a good relationship with their parents!
    Teenagers should know when they’re ready to work and to live on their own.
    Great article! I really agree with you.

  3. I agree with your opinion, that being a teenager is complicated and parents are a huge part of our teenage life. I also like, that you keep track on one statement: parents and us. I agree with your view point that parents deserve respect.
