teenagers conversing what do u find hardest about being a teen?February 23, 2011 2:04 am at 2:04 am #836100TumsMember
Not being able to purchase alcohol.February 23, 2011 2:20 am at 2:20 am #836101
Being stuck in between being not able to do anything yet having to be responsible and everything like a full adult. Then again it is kind of preparation for later life like having to do mitzvos and stuff before bar mitzvah

not being able to have my own apartment and earnn a living (babysitting is not alot charging only 5 an hour)
not being able to go wherever i want when i want
not being able to make my own decisions
having parents responsible 4 me
(i like being independant)
having to share a roomFebruary 23, 2011 2:34 am at 2:34 am #836103
b”h for that that teens cant buy alcohol until there 21 hopefully by then a person is a bit more mature and knows better what they want from themselves
thats what a teen is all about preparation for being a adult 🙂
teenagers are still dependent o a little on their parents but also have to learn how to be independentFebruary 23, 2011 2:38 am at 2:38 am #836104
i fully understand u be thankful that u dont have to work yet and support a family when the time comes for u to work ……..
teenagers have to learn how to be independent but still have to be dependnt on our parents a little imagine what the world would look like if ttens did exactly what they wanted without guidance and support and leadership
good luck 🙂February 23, 2011 2:44 am at 2:44 am #836105Sister BearMember
not being fully valued or listened to because “you’re just a teen and we’re adults and know better.” Heads up…sometimes you don’t.February 23, 2011 2:44 am at 2:44 am #836106shuliParticipant

not being able to get married yet
How old are you? People get married as young as 17, and certainly 18.February 23, 2011 3:35 am at 3:35 am #836110

whats the rush?February 23, 2011 4:39 am at 4:39 am #836114Shmuel294Member
I found that during my teenaged years my parents were the hardest part of my life because they were always scared that u was gonna go OTD so two were always trying to control me. As for school, what’s so bad about going to a place where you get to learn, work on your arguing skills and make friends?February 23, 2011 4:46 am at 4:46 am #836115charliehallParticipant
“not being able to get married yet “
If you are sixteen, you can get married almost everywhere in the US as long as your parents consent. A few states will even allow younger people to get married, but permission of a secular court may be required. Halachah would actually permit someone to get married as soon as they are bar or bat mitzvah, but we have to follow secular law as well.February 23, 2011 5:07 am at 5:07 am #836116
To build the foundation of your life. These are the crucial yrs that forms a person. It’s hardest to decide which goals to set and which path to pursue.February 23, 2011 6:35 am at 6:35 am #836117mom12Participant
I am not a teen..but I do have teenaged children..
only got one thing to say: the time flies by so fast enjoy your teenage years and the fact that you r not ‘attached’.
My ‘in her 20’s’ daughter, only wants to be a teenager again..
Enjoy the freedom and the fact that your not being constantly looked after (if your not shidduch age,that is)
GOOD LUCK — try to find the good in each stage of lifeFebruary 23, 2011 12:09 pm at 12:09 pm #836118Shticky GuyParticipant
Its hard cos teenagers always think they know better, and sometimes they really do, but they must still learn to accept authority and this seems to be difficult for most of them, as i’m sure it was for me during my teenage years.
Why are they called ‘teenagers’? Vayl zai teen vus zai vill…February 23, 2011 1:19 pm at 1:19 pm #836119
One of my favorite quotes about teens: when you are younger you think your parents are so dumb and when you get older you are amazed at how much they learned in so few years …

ya i like that!February 24, 2011 1:14 am at 1:14 am #836123mischiefmakerMember
I have found parents and teachers to be wrong. They think they know everything and the teen knows nothing but I’m a teen and I don’t think I know everything and that’s why I ask and there are times that adults can also admit to mistakes! You don’t either know everything! Yes, teenage years are tough…We had another thread on that.
Also, I know a girl in 11th grade who just got engaged so you technically can although I wouldn’t.February 24, 2011 11:26 pm at 11:26 pm #836124
fact in life ppl make mistakes and no no one should think og themselves that they dont make mistakes only angels dont make mistakes when u realize ur wrong u got to admit it! (thats key #1)February 25, 2011 1:39 am at 1:39 am #836125mischiefmakerMember
That’s precisely what I was trying to say.February 25, 2011 1:45 am at 1:45 am #836126
Tums: since when can’t u buy alcohol. i have been getting alcohol and cigarretes since 12 yrs. old. just gotta know where 2 go.February 25, 2011 1:51 am at 1:51 am #836127
Guy Ocho: Now, now, don’t go around educating the innocent teens! 🙁February 25, 2011 1:57 am at 1:57 am #836128
observanteen: how old r u that ur not innocent anymore. If they’re on CR, they’re probably trying to get a little educated. btw thats what the mods r here 4. They wouldnt post it if it was harmful.February 25, 2011 2:03 am at 2:03 am #836129
I didn’t say I’m not innocent anymore…;)

At first I was wondering how the adults got in (J/K) and then I started wondering which side I’d actually be on…
Scary thought.February 25, 2011 12:42 pm at 12:42 pm #836138
Me too but until I turn twenty I will hold on to being a teen as much as I possibly can so I am on the teen side 😀

Does marriage put an end to teenageness? Why?
😀 Zuberman! 😀February 27, 2011 3:42 am at 3:42 am #836142
ya, course! too many reasons to mention…February 27, 2011 4:46 am at 4:46 am #836143
So if someone were to get married at 17 they are no longer a teenager?
😀 Zuberman! 😀February 27, 2011 4:57 am at 4:57 am #836144
technically they r but the title doesnt really suit them anymoreFebruary 27, 2011 5:27 am at 5:27 am #836145
well in a literal sense they would still be a teenager, but they can call themselves whatever makes them happy! Why not hold onto the status of a teen while you have it though? We are the best!
>O<613February 27, 2011 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #836146
