Prejudice Against Teens in our Society

Please view my introduction Voice Thread

 People older than I think that people my age are irresponsible, lazy, untrustworthy and make rash decisions. I see this form of prejudice  almost every day. Adults do not understand our way of thought. What they don’t realize is that there is a large gap in age between us. I agree that this type of prejudice does exist in our world today.
        Older people think that we are reckless. Some older people call us yob meaning young, reckless, and aggressive people. They never allow us to do anything by ourselves. In a way, they are like bullies taking rights away from us because of the way we express ourselves. Teenagers are considered immature compared to adults. Our bodies are still growing physically and mentally. Most teens handle situations very maturely. Everybody has a bad day and they can make wrong decisions. Now this is not a one sided argument, nobody is perfect. We all make mistakes and we correct them.Teenagers can commit major offenses just like adults. Older people think that teenagers are most likely to commit a crime but, it’s the opposite adults are. 46% of all youth related crimes are about property damage. Prejudice of this kind is in our world and i’m not sure if it will ever go away. There's just too big of a gap that can not be mended between these two different ages.

Prejudice is a very serious topic. I strongly feel that it is here to stay and will affect all of us one day. I hope that prejudice one day will be wiped out and we can live in peace. I believe that people can never truly get along if they are too diverse.

  1. I agree that adults don't give us teens enough credit. I don't think that will ever change though. Your blog was informative and well written. Thanks for sharing.
