YOU DON’T OWN ME! Angry teens.

Whether the issue is parents not vaccinating their children and now, as teens, revolting and having the vaccination or parents directing their teens into careers, relationships or social encounters against their will, teens are rebelling in numbers greater than seen in many years.

Far too many teens feeling hopeless, leave home and end up on the street. Some are drawn to the mind numbing euphoria of drugs, some solicit to survive while others struggle to discover if a normal life exists and if so, what does it look like.

Parents don’t own their children.

“Healing will take time and patience. Assessing what went wrong in your abusive relationship can consume you. Don’t do it. Shit happens. We make mistakes and end up with the wrong person.

Changing locations, getting a new job and moving on works. Not immediately, but it does according to many teens/women who have, unfortunately, been in your shoes.”

  1. If I ever said that to my Mom, she would have smacked me for being insolent. But then again I was never a rebellious teen.
    It was obvious to me from an early age that I either got out of S. LA into a career or I would probably die.
    My Mom was relentless and I was angry some of the time because she wouldn’t give a bit. Always homework, chores etc. so I didn’t have time on my hands.
    I graduated from UCLA, had a career with the LAPD and now the Secret Service.
    I guess what I’m saying is if a teen can’t communicate with his/her parents then try and go through a school counselor or a church or youth group but do NOT give up.

  2. I can’t relate to Angry Teens but I think teenagers have been angry at society for decades, maybe longer. It is a natural transition from childhood to being an adult and the route is fraught with pitfalls.

    I think today’s youth are more vocal and that may be thanks to social media. They are not afraid of engaging adults in a conversation of equals.

    I enjoyed my time teaching in StoneHead and having this interaction. One thing that draws anger the quickest with teens is adults who presume to know everything about everything.

    We don’t.
