Not all teenagers are bad!

I’m always reading on social media, how awful teenage children are. It makes me mad! Not all of them are horrible. Take my children for example, yes I know I’m extremely biased; they’re great. Fabulous even. They’re a joy to be around, I love their company and  treasure the time we have together. We share great banter together and have interesting conversations! Yes they can be grumpy; so can I and if you’re truthful, so are you. Teenage children have so much going on in their life’s. The pressure they’re under at school is immense not only with their levels, they have to achieve but also with their peers. I know for one I wouldn’t want to be a teenager in this day and age. If you were to compare them to the older generation are they much better? I’ve lost count how many times I’ve patiently been waiting in a queue, only to have a senior citizen push in front of me. Or how about when you hold a door open for them and not a word of thanks?!  My daughter works in a sandwich bar, on a couple of occasions, a customer has actually sworn at her because she doesn’t have the sandwich filling that they want. How is that acceptable? She and most of her friends would never dream of speaking to an adult in that manner.
Lets all be a bit more tolerant to our teenage children.

Lets not label them #stroppyteenagers. Remember, they will soon be grown up and no longer be such a big part of our life’s. I dread the time when my children leave home. It’ll be the saddest day ever. I know I’ll have more time to spend time with my husband (!) but I will miss them so much!!

    Ahh Lyn, that was such a lovely post. Your children are beautiful and I dread to think of the day they leave home. You can come round mine to shed a tear. Your children are a credit to you. Xx

    Good post Lyn. I was a bit moody to my parents when I was a teen but not horrible or rude to anyone else. I was good at school and worked hard! Your children are a credit to you 🙂 Jess xxx

    There is definitely a difference in being moody and down right rude. Just over the past week I have seen older people pushing in queues without a care for anyone else. How can they get away with that, when we would certainly be telling a teenager off for doing the same. My teen can be grumpy, but like your children he is always polite to people x
