The ability to focus on both school and fun

Exot1c_

I'm really lucky that I actually enjoy learning about things like science math and history. I think that is the main reason I've done so well in school, because I can have fun learning


Remarkable-Rush-1454

A hug bro, school her just started and I’m already overwhelmed


NEOkuragi

Cries in 'it's 8:20 pm, I have bullshit tone of homework which I won't be able to do and no food for tomorrow bc no cafeteria at school and classes til 5pm'. Yeah, I feel u ಥ_ಥ


Emer_Sonic_Boom

more sleep


hells1ck

Sleep


woah-itz-drew

I second this. 8-10 hours is recommended but everyone I know (including myself) gets like 3-5 tops


Glasterz

lmao I'm in my first year of college right now and we have this advisory class that tells you about how to access things, what to do in town, general adulting things. They recommended the 1-2-3 system, aka 1 shower a day, 2 meals a day, and at least 3 hours of sleep a day. I audibly laughed when I heard a college say that 3 hours of sleep is enough.


AGengar

Excuse me w h a t


aelvozo

Probably so that you don’t die


AGengar

Idk I don't think I'd last long on 3 hrs a day


vaszoly

I'm gonna be honest at this point I'm kinda used to sleeping about 5 hours a day so I could survive maybe half the day on 3 hours


No-Negotiation-9539

I was with you on the 1 shower a day part. But if your only going 2 meals a day with only 3 hours of sleep, you'll die by the end of the week. That college is out of its' mind.


Glasterz

You can survive on 2 meals a day. Especially if they're bigger. And if you only get 3 hours of sleep, you're not gonna die but you're going to involuntarily get more sleep later. It's not going to kill you but you'd be insane to follow that regularly. And they meant at least 2 meals BTW, not only eat 2 meals


hells1ck

I haven't slept in 2 days :(


benceiscool

How are you alive


hells1ck

I don't know. I'm gonna be honest, my life is so messed up. I just broke up with my partner after 2 years and I can't sleep or eat. Im just so sad.


AGengar

:( that's rough bro, sorry you gotta go through that


kmomkin

Here’s a mom hug for you. Being sad is normal and ok but you also need to sleep and eat. Have a small snack and lie down for a bit. It will get better.

Okay. C'mon over & we'll make them together. Good food, good chat, good times.


ActuallyBaffled

Huh. Would've never thought. Am 42, daughter is 6, so I have little contact with teens - joining this sub is a way to get a glimpse of young people's world. This post and comment provide just that. Hang in there, people. It's gonna get easier. Nobody has their life figured out. I'd say the goal is to take care of your relations with people - long friendships are the shit. Be kind. You're smarter than you think, you're good people, and you need to be kind to yourselves. Hang in there. Edit: Thanks for the awards, lovely people :)


mrspeacockwasaman

41 with an 11 year old, here for the same reasons. Gonna go hug my daughter now


CaraintheCold

I worked as a media aide in a middle school before kids had cell phones. Kids who were trouble or needed to leave for a test had to sit in the library. Many would just start talking, especially if they were there multiple days. Many of them thought they weren't loved by their parents. As a parent of a teen, I know now that parents are starting to give kids more independence at this age. It is an interesting juxtaposition. So I don't doubt most of them need more hugs.


dances_with_squirrel

45 with a 3 year old. This sub and a few others like it, really do help me understand what I might be up against one day. Kids these days have it pretty rough and it's unnerving!


DarkLight_2810

thank you for trying to understand us


sweetbldnjesus

52 with a 15 yo. I’d hug ‘em but they’d probably bite. JK, they like hugs


-Silent_Wolf-

Glad someone in that age range understands instead of going ‘it’s a phase’ or ‘stop being dramatic’


Trickshroom

> Kids these days have it pretty rough and it's unnerving! am young. agree


Didjt

I don't think that's just teenagers


iScabs

Can confirm, adults need hugs too


CarsynFavorite

Your right. I do need a hug. I don't think I've been in physical contact with anyone my age in 5 months.


Alitt1

Don't do that. Don't give me hope.

Gasnax

Literally 99% of my problems (100% if I wasn't afraid of ignoring exceptions) could be instantly solved or at least significantly helped by money.


iluvcuppycakes

I’m not sure how r/teenagers popped up for me… as I’m 33. But this feeling never goes away. Unless you get money. I assume it goes away if you actually get money.


ueberbelichtetesfoto

It depends on how many money. Two money ain't do shit. Three money on the other hand...

mikeoxmalss

They keep changing the learning system, coming up with new words. How is that possible?


CrazyGamer123456

Maybe they’re swapping between the different types of Spanish


Stargost_

I'm from argentina and i can confirm. It's spanish but depending on wich country or even what part of the country is really hard to know what some people are talking about. Like: "mina", in almost every place it's a landmine but where i live it's used to refere to a beautifull woman. "Torta" it"s either a cake or a hard punch Same with "piña", it means a pinneapple or a punch in the face.


Woah-Kenny

The way I think about it is this: what's more important: 1: knowing how a language works (understanding the mechanics) or 2: being able to communicate with someone from an area where that language is primary used. Schools teach 1, which is important but 2 is much easier and leads to a result thay most people are after. If you disagree, try tacking a formal language test in your native tongue. You may learn that you may not know all the mechanics of that language and find it unnecessary to know.

edude76

Sex is cool. But it can always bring a lot of other baggage with it. Don't rush something just for sex. Yeah it sucks to be lonely but it's even worse to feel lonely with someone else. It'll happen when it happens dude. Don't force it

crim-sama

This. Mental health needs taught in schools. Schools need to staff proper mental health staff. There needs to be outreach to parents about the issues too. Too many kids have really bad issues and, instead of getting help, theyre going online to interact with total strangers about their issues and often end up in groups who validate and justify their worst impulses and behaviors, and sometimes deliberately twist and distort their emotions for their own purposes. These spaces these kids go are totally unregulated and have zero accountability. The parents have no understanding of the tools they need to use to properly help raise their kids either. They just set them in front of screens, no communication, no supervision.

To be treated with respect . Not as little kids and not as adults . Stop being sexualised


_Hier0nymus

That's good. It's either, "you're just a kid, you don't know anything" or "grow up and take responsibility". Now what is it? Respect is also very important. Someone that wasn't respected his whole life is probably way more likely to be a disrespectful ass in the future. And the sexualization I feel is something that has gotten out of hand in the last few years over social media. There's like preteens doing those dances on Instagram or tiktok that should prolly just stay in a strip club. All very good points


Anothercreativenam

Ikr they just flip between “kid” and “adult” whenever which is convenient at the time.


imgonegg

as someone who has never received much respect id say that in my personal experience I have lots of respect but only for the right people. "If you treat me like shit why would I treat you with respect?"


ImUniq06

Exactly. Teens are treated like kids but expected to act like adults.


beenszzboi42069

My dad treets me like this. Just last night he yelled at me and got pissed cause they spilt beens on the over burner and it burned when I made noodles cause I didn't realize it was there.

no homework help im dying


quietpro69

You and me both they seriously expect us to chunk out 3 hours to do homework when most of us(I’m a junior so a lot of my friends and peers have jobs) have jobs that are more difficult than teaching like botch I’ve got no intent or time to stay up till 12:30 doing homework after a busy 6 hour shift on a school night at Taco Bell where I find out that one of my coworkers is an absolute sick bag who doesn’t accept responsibility for their actions and I had to deal with Karen’s for 6 hours straight


cheeriosaregood8

Someone to talk to because their parents are impossible to talk to


quietpro69

Holy shit someone knows my pain I’ve only got 4 people I trust in this whole world neither of them are my parents I’ve got my buddy my other buddy my coworker/buddy and my 3 brothers(but mostly the one that comes after me) because I can’t tell my dad anything cause he’ll tell my mom and she goes on Facebook and tells my aunts uncles everyone. This might be why I have trust issues.but I’ve told my friends my darkest secrets and I trust them to the grave and they’ve told me they’re darkest secrets do you know what it’s like to not be able to trust your parents anymore god sorry if it feels like I’m venting

Direction/Purpose. Its not enough to go to college (or not). When you start having direction especially in a young life, you start to care less about problems you thought were big. Heck even TRYING to find a direction in your life in the manner of career path, fostering healthier relationships, or in any other way, will make you mature. I think that’s what I see missing. Especially after I’ve been through high school.


HotelEggs

I think what most teens need right now, is to know that it’s alright. It’s alright to be afraid, to be sad, to be lost. It’s alright to not be alright. No one is perfect. I’m not saying life is easy, and that everything get magically gets better. It’s going to take work, it’s going to be hard. But it’s going to be alright. You are loved, you are strong. You are enough <3
