iliza sleshinger once commented on why girls are cruel the way that are. how girls idea of revenge is ruining your life.

anyways regarding kids growing up to fast.
have you seen the way media portrays sex? they make it look good. in their right they are kids.

like how toy comercial are made with the squishy eggs. the kids act like they are having a blast so kids watching the show doesn't know what it is but want it anways.

sort of like how when Tom the cat catches jerry the mouse he act like he got something cool in his hand and begs jerry to show it to him and jerry tricks him and gets away.

anywho, in defense to those girl, along with media, biology affects them. they think about any form of contact releases endorphin and it feels good.

kevin hart makes a joke, about how even if a guy has never feel a woman breast even from birth. if he accidently elbows a girl even under layers of heavy clothes he would know what it is instantaneously.

basically genetics is pretty strong, along with genetics there is social que for such ideas to be normal, and media to further strengthen it.

yes you are a minor, but in other parts of the world being a minor can end as early as 11 years old. i mean with love making, their is never a defined age. i think have the limit set is an awesome thing, because it protects kids from creeps but at the same time it may help people who are truly not ready or restrict those who are ready. its an individual matter in the end.

basically, it is hard when people change and treat you differently. they are who they are and you are you. you have your priority and they have theres. if they are your friends learn to respect them or not to judge them, you'll find yourself meeting great people but their morals are at a conflict with yours.

childhood is what you make of it, their isn't enough time in the world for anyone to fulfill it. you have all your life believe it or not the be a child, so make it count when you can and know when you shouldn't. childhood can mean playing, hanging with friend, exploring, learning new thing, be irresponsible, or even to have a relationship. you get to decide what it means to have a childhood.

That means you're rational. :P
As kids grow older, their hormones go crazy and they create drama in the way they dress and the way they act.
I remember telling myself that I won't change clothes like 3 times before I go out for something special
but I did!
And it's because of those daggum hormones. x)

Since I am a senior, I am trying to become me: having fun with everyone around my school. When I am not thinking about education, I spend most of the time with the underclassman. Most of the seniors believe they are adults even though some of them aren't 18 yet. I am turning 18 in April, and until my birthday, I want to have as much fun as I can.

I don't think that kids these days are growing up too fast at the least. On the contrary, they're growing up slower than they ever have. The only problem is that these days society keeps poisoning them by enticing them with adult "privileges" like alcohol, sex and drugs with little being taught to address their responsible use.

Growing up isn't drugs, sex, swearing, violent movies, doing whatever you want, etc. It's learning how to cook, resisting peer pressure, making your own money, learning how to defend and advocate for yourself constructively, critically thinking (and not just following your gut feelings blindly), managing your resources well and most importantly taking responsibility for your own actions. There is nothing wrong with growing up as fast as you can, but the middle schooler perspective of growing up has little to do with actually growing up, and if an adult is like what they describe, obsessing over sex and alcohol, he/she is still immature.

Being 21 and having very fresh and unwhitewashed memories of my childhood and adolescence (technically adolescence ends at 25), I do not think that being a kid is easy at all. Unless you are pampered, it is just as hard as being an adult, since the trials and tribulations that you go through usually feel very hard the first time you deal with it. Adults only think it's easy because they can't relate to the first time they had to go through it (1st year psychology in university will tell you that, which is why a lot of students get the feeling that they're surrounded by idiots when talking to the general public when they are actually the smart one). But as you grow older, it becomes a breeze, and a new trial or tribulation is thrown your way. Unlike most people, I have never looked back at my childhood and wanted to go back (except maybe to look at the anime shows on my local TV station before they got replaced with tween crap). Going back to your childhood would not be easy, unless you managed to preserve your brain and your implicit memory of skills.

As for sex, I would think that it is better to wait until you are 21 or so. Where I am the age of consent is 16 but 14 year olds can consent with anyone 13-18 as long as it's not anal sex or with someone of authority or trust (in which it rises to 18), but I don't think that anyone should be having sex until their mid 20s or so. I'm still a virgin and I have chosen to remain that way because I think of sex as a more intimate activity between people who are in a committed relationship, and I find those promiscuous one night stands very unappealing.

Also, I'm sure that the jealousy stuff happens at practically any age, child or adult.

People are still telling me to enjoy childhood, and I'm already seeing why. I'm only 14, but I feel like kids my age are trying to grow up way too fast, and it feels weird. I kind of miss elementary school where there was no real drama (at school, at least). But now, like, half the kids my age are talking about how much they want to have sex, and I'm just like, "You do realize you're a minor, right?" And also, a lot of girls my age claim that they have "enemies" and they hate other girls with a passion; I honestly don't see the point of it. And it's over stupid stuff like being jealous of each other when, really, they have just as many good qualities as the other person. So, with that being said, I want to hear everyone else's thoughts on this!
COMMENT AWAY!
P.S. Sorry for ranting...


idk what your school was like , but i can say that at my school there was all the dramas... haha

As for me though i grow in maturity, but i stay out of that drama stuff (which kinda go hand in hand). I guess thats why i'm always mistaken for being older than i am. When i got a "girlfriend" in middle school, it was literally like being pushed into the pool of drama(which f*cking sucked so I dropped that as quick as i could), but in the end it was a event that set in stone that i would stay out of the stupid crowd which you described. In the end i'm cool where i stand at school, I got my group that i chill with, i get respect and am not picked on, and i hear things and see stuff, but never get involved in any drama (like lurking in the shadows). Though, i'm not affiliated with them in any way, i wish the kids at my school would "grow up" in a sense that they actually take responsibilities for themselves and for once in their life learn the meaning of respect, the way they treat the teachers is pathetic (i may not like the teachers either, but still go for good grades and keep your mouth shut you don't have to say everything that you think up).

You're not alone! I miss being little so much and having that care free life. But I feel as if I missed out on a lot because I went to an all girls high school and it sucked so much! All the girls hated on each other and it was hell. I'm 17 now and about to go university, I really don't want to turn 18 this year :S All I can think of now is the amount of responsibility I'm going to have and work. ARGH! Enjoy it while it lasts

I had the same experiences, and the same thoughts. I had a friend who claimed to lose her virginity. She was 13 at the time. And I told her she was going to get pregnant and die. Just to freak her out. And she did freak out.

Ahh. Those were the days. uwu

My big sis did get pregnant at 16. She's always in hurry to do things, almost got married at 14 but backed out at the last moment (its was legal where we where if you had your parents' permission even though school there tends to last from age 3 to 18/19). I decided to learn more about it. I got out mother's obstetrics book (she's a midwife). It listed every single thing that could go wrong in pregnancy including birth defects and stillborns. After that I shut the book and thought "oh god, my sis is going to die!". Thankfully all that happened was I got a niece who was jaundiced so had some UV treatment with her wearing some tiny shades and both she and mother were fine to come home. The neighbourhood kind of shunned the family for having a teen mother.

Ah, really? A friend of mine got pregnant fairly recently. I think she was 17. She's doing just fine, and so is her baby. It was a surprise, but as long as teen moms have a good head on their shoulders, and are determined, I don't think there's anything wrong with it. It's hard to support a baby when you're young, and especially with potential birth defects. But it's not impossible. I'm happy for your sister and her baby! That must be tough. My friend's kinda shunned where I live, too. Even by some of her own family.

I wouldn't consider big sis to have had a good head on her shoulders when the baby arrived. She was holding my niece and forgot to leave room for the baby's head when she was passing through the door. The result was the baby's head got bumped. Baby screamed, we gasped and sis looked at her child and said "pretend that didn't happen" . At that point I didn't think my niece would last through childhood, strangely she survived.

Welcome to my world. My senior class has too many cliques. That's one of the many reasons why I hate my senior class.
