When I was in high School and I got a girl’s number I had to go home get my most polite and respectful voice together to call her, because her mother or her father could pick up the phone. Now teenagers have their own phone so when a boy gets a girls number he can call or text her directly with no filter theres no ,”OK I better get myself together, because the parent may pick up” thought process anymore.
Teenagers are experiencing an combustion of emotions that explode a million times a minute, and us adults are trying to manage the carnage. It is a peculiar place to reside: transition – that is what a teenager is – a wilderness designed to shed childish thinking to obtain maturity or show the ability to respond to freedom.
