People much older than I am tend to believe that people belonging to my age group are lazy, irresponsible, immature, disrespectful, make irrational decisions, (etc.) This stereotype, in my opinion, is due to the fact that drugs and alcohol are extremely popular with teenagers. Older folks would dislike it if we said all old people are grumpy; therefore, they should not stereotype us teenagers. Older people also want us to be as wise or as calm as them, forgetting that our minds our still mentally developing. For example, I am pretty sure that everyone has played Knock-Knock-Runaway or had a snowball fight at least once in their lives, but if an older person saw us doing this they would instantaneously holler at us. I certainly recognize this form of prejudice every day in our society and it needs to be put to an end.
