I feel your pain. Some girls at my school are straight up hoes. Ready for sex and somehow getting it. Everyone wants to be a grown-up and I'm just here thinking...I wanna stay a kid forever. I wanna play games and program forever. Adulthood just sounds...eww. I wanna be prepared for it, but I may not be mentally...I am still a bit immature now. My mom is telling me to grow up and get mature and stop playing so much games and stuff and I just wanna enjoy it all while I can. I miss elementary school where you could go outside and play and even take naps if you were young enough. There was snack time and the classrooms were so colorful and there are no finals or anything. I miss it so bad sometimes the nostalgia just hits me like a freaking house being thrown at me. I don't understand all these girls with their drama and wanting to grow up so fast. Why? You have to support yourself and get somewhat mature and not play around as much. You don't have as much time as you do now because now YOU'RE the one making the money and getting jobs and careers. Your mom or dad isn't there for you anymore. It just doesn't sound so appealing to me.

there's a period up until 16 where most kids in your school will be extremely irritating, however for the more mature individuals; it levels off after that point. Sex isn't really that great, 99% of the time for me, it was a waste of energy and I felt empty after doing it, Partying is too much of a strain on my wallet and drama was just ******* annoying.

I hated everyone in my school for the reasons you listed and became pretty anti social lol

Being a grown up sucks. Used to be that you could get easy access to porn when you grew up. But ever since the internet came about, you don't need to be a grown up to have easy access to porn. So really there is no point of growing up anymore.

Please...

Nothing I said is anything that others didn't also say. Just picturing what I'd say to my daughter when it is that time.

Trying and wanting to grow up too fast. And when adulthood hits, youth is wanted. Life sucks.

Man, I certainly would never want to be a teenager again.


Nor I, but I'm sure you understand my meaning when you see the pettiness of "adulthood" that starts in HS never truly ends...

or when you see adults try to "recapture their youth"....or the phrase, "youth is wasted on the young".

I make the statement not to say that the young aren't trying to grow up too fast, but that, in general, we're never satisfied regardless of our age. The eternal folly of mankind, perhaps...?

They think they're rushing to become older. They're only rushing faster towards death.

It's normal for the youthful to wish to grow up, especially since being "grown up" is seen to come with power and authority; however, the idea of kids being pure lambs, and that they're supposed to have pristinely joyful and innocent childhoods, are products of wishful thinking. So is the belief that today's societies are more corrupt. It's an illusion.

Parents and "kids" today struggle to find the difference between being "mature for your age" and being "overgrown for your age" the latter of which majority of "kids" today fall into.

I always telling youngins to sit their young ass down and enjoy being a responsibility-free child while they can.
The real world is tough bruh.

The children of today need to realize that age is not synonymous with power and authority but it would probably be wiser and more beneficial to listen to the older generation for once.

You'll mature when you'll mature, until then manage as best you can. 18 isn't some magical number where what is considered to be adult freedoms suddenly come your way neither is it a doomsday number when joy and security ends.

I think you shouldn't be too hard on yourself or your school mates even if you dislike them. No one should be called "hoes", just because they want to learn about sexuality.

Some have had what's considered adult responsibilities earlier than 13. Caring for disabled family members or younger siblings, working out how to supplement the family income to feed and cloth everyone and some how juggling school studies. Other parts of the world see some married off and bearing children.

We didn't get what we officially consider to be a childhood until school education started to become universal. Before that most were like little adults working as soon as they could physically handling tools and being made responsible for younger siblings/workmates/housemates.
