Speaking as a 20 year old teenager...

Unlike most people who were dumb enough to get pegged into a generational stereotype, like the skaters that DarkHelmet speaks of, or the MTV brainwashees that TrueLies speaks of, I chose to go my own way, make my own mistakes, choose my friends because we have similar interests and have a good time together rather than trying to gain social status, etc.

DarkHelmet--The punks you speak of aren't real punks. 98% of skaters are poseurs, they look like punks but do it for fashion.

Well yeah... They dress punk for fashion, but almost every skater I know from all the other HS's are REALLY punks. It's not that I have anything against them, it's just they aren't the type of people I'd hang around. I do, however, know skaters that are straight A students that are probably the nicest people in the world. I'm just speaking about the majority. I also forgot to mention the Goth people. everyone always assumes they are trouble and do drugs and stuff... but from what I've seen here all around Colorado Springs and Ft. Carson, most of them do it out of fashion.

you got to thank mtv and gangster rap for that, i'm a teenager but damn i have to admit that today's 98% of teenagers think of them big, don't respect their parents at all, take the food and clothes their parents provide for them as granted, have sex, do drugs, shoot each other(on the news there are more teenager related death reports everyday that adults), usually aren't interested in anything and are moody asses, they # on their parent's heads but at the end of the day they cry how the world doesn't understand them


98% of teenagers are like this???

Dude i'm a teen (for another 6 months at least) and if 98% of us are doing all those things we're going to have a generation of very #ed up people in the not too distant future...

So what we have sex... if you've had sex, you'd realise its not really a bad thing at all (yes you have to be careful but so what?)
A very small majority of teens do drugs andeven of those who do only a small percent actually are addicted or cause problems in society due to our addiction...
Shooting each other? yeah in the USA but thats coz your country is just screwed up with crappy gun laws... kids, teens, geriatrics everyone has access to weapons...

i dont ask for the adult generation to understand me or accept me... i'll prove to them in my own time that this drug taking, authority questioning, punk-rock listening, carefree, fun-loving, chick f#@king kid will make something worthy of himself and i dont care what they think. I respect older people coz they've been here and done that and i dont care if they respect me or not... and frankly if your of the opinion of not caring what people think why worry if you dont get the respect... live life to the fullest and dont let anyone get in your way... to all you oldies... RESPECT!!!


p.s stop putting people into groups... i'm a punk but have goth friends, gangsta friends nerdy friends... friends from all 'groups possible... STOP STEREOTYPING!!!

I didn't notice that post... and i seriously doubt it's as high as 98%. There's just no way. I also think teens may act the way they do BECAUSE of older generations. They assume and make us believe we are that way, so in turn we really Do act that way. I've got my priorities straight, so I don't have to worry about any of this.

Thats just it... i work a high paying full-time job and am fully independent from my parents (i have my own place) i'm on great terms with my folks and managers at work... i know when to f#@k around and when to behave... but i do agree there are teens who do give us all a bad name but there are adults who do the same thing... as long as you have your priorities right who cares what the oldies think as long as your going where you wanna go

Dont forget Good old George W Bush... he's just the playground bully... the jock who beats all the little kids up and has the teachers support coz he is the start quarterback... so when the little kids fight back they get into trouble for it

That's how it is with this one kid on my basketball team. Coach is good friends with his dad, so all of our plays center around him. Coach thinks he's the best damn player in the world. But in reality... He's not, and when someone says something they have to run for it. Like today a kid got kicked off the team because of another play we put in that surrounds the other kid. I hate jocks like them. i'm the jock that knows I'm good, but i don't go around bragging.

Yeah thats what i was like when i played rugby... i scored all the points but didnt really care if i got credit or not... i knew i was the best and thats what counts... i spent half a year with a broken collar bone and still tripled everyone in points scored... but who got best player... the coaches son... i didnt care... the club award (awarded by the club i played for NOT the coach) went to me and the coach was fired the next year for bias and then his son didnt make the cut for with the new coach

When you're 20, I believe your an "adult" not a teenager. You may have the mentality of a teenager though.

for all you teens that are saying your misunderstood, your really not.

The guy who posted about having sex, that's not a big deal, older generations did it when they were in 10th grade, i'm sure of it. My 1st time was 10th grade, mind you I didn't start sleeping around after that, I stayed in a relationship for 2 years.

Drugs? so what, your not the only generation to consume that sh*t in high school, it's part of the phase. Some people want to try it some don't.

However, addiction problems usually don't start showing up until 12th grade or shortly after.

Ie, a girl named sarah starts dabbling in early in 10th grade, stops experimenting with e, shroom, acid, and decides she like the snow, weed, and her cigarettes.
Down the road she realises she can't stop smoking cigarettes, and can't stop smoking weed because she's been doing it for such a long time.. Mind you she's 20 now and voice sounds like an old hag's.

Addiction is common those "types" of personalities, you indulge in something, you have a hard time getting out.
And there are some people you never get addicted.

So you know what, if you want to go and do all that "craaazy" stuff, go ahead, youre not the first generation to do that sh*t.

Those punks that you speak of have been around longer then you. You guys are rewriting everything that's already been done.

The real punks who started "punk" were people who believed in freedom. They were viewed as rebels by some because they fought the status quo.

Nowadays punks are little pansy's that want an image of something they really aren't.

They don't understand what a "punk" is.

They try to dress the part, and act like little sh*t heads, they don't have respect, and they create chaos, and not in the name of freedom. Just to be little dicks.



With your generation, i'm not sure which way it's going, but i'm sure this is a phase and you'll grow out of it.

This mtv era though blows my mind.

Your a generation that has been over exposed to sexuality. And the girls are turning into attention whores, they all dress the same (like oversexed bubble gum chompers) the guys with their big chains, baggy pants, and bandana's all look the same, and they portray this image of something they aren't.

It's not cool, it looks stupid, so when we see this kind of garbage all we can do is roll our eyes and hope you don't turn out like a bunch of mindless monkey's.

Because that's what it looks like now.

And to note: not "all" teenagers.

I don't know about the kids turning for the worse, but I do know that the Disco era was all about sex, drugs and partying. I think we turned out alright. And what did our parent think of us getting high, dancing the Disco Duck in elevator shoes?

That's right, I think they'll turn out fine. Hopefully...

And the hippies... Don't want to get into that... As I see it... It was far worse back then, because teens then had little knowledge of STD's and the damaging effects of drugs... Hell, even the adults did the stuff. I used to have a teacher in 7th grade that admitted she was a weed smoker, among worse things, back in the Disco era. I think there is no major problem with teens today. Once it's like 1 out of every 3 acting this way... then you need to get concerned.

My impression of young people today is that they are the most spoiled yet neglected generation that has ever been.

They are the most idealistic yet least realistic. They are the most experienced yet least wise.

They are the most selfish yet most concerned about social justice.

They are a confusing bunch and if what I wrote here is true than no wonder anyone understands them.

They are not bad people but they are a result of strenuous social engineering which has been designed to wrest them from their parents control.

Amen to that, Neo. But I say that and I am 14 years old. I particularly agree with the part about being selfish. In time, these kids will learn that a lot of the things they think are cool, aren't. What is it going to matter what kind of shoes you wore in middle and high school, or what kind of brand of clothing you had, or anything like that. What really will matter is what you learned and how you used it.
I'm not tryting to go off topic, it's just something that bugs me about a lot of the kids that I know. Most of them treat the teachers like sh!t. It's sooooooo disrespectful, and I just want to slap 'em across their face. There was this kid who used to sit behind me in math class, and every now and then he would make a smart@$$ comment, and it really ticked me off. One of these days, they're gonna get it.

Sorry, I had to get that out, but no one talks to MY teacher like that and gets away with it.

The Wisdom Archive for Indigo Children

Indigo Children

In the spiritual community, there are many who anticipate the Emergence of a Golden Age to come. An important part of this awakening that is occuring is the coming of Children with an awakened Consciousness. These childrens have been called the Indigo children.

Are the Indigo children, (variously called the Indigo children, Crystal Children, the Children of Oz) the ones who will launch humanity into a new era of consciousness, laying the groundwork for the emergence of a Golden Age?

"The Indigo Child is a boy or girl who displays a new and unusual set of psychological attributes, revealing a pattern of behavior generally undocumented before. This pattern has singularly unique factors that call for parents and teachers to change their treatment and upbringing of these kids to assist them in achieving balance and harmony in their lives, and to help them avoid frustration."

Lee Carroll & Jan Tober

In an epic poem, Savitri, the late master Sri Aurobindo of India vividly describes a coming new race of humanity emerging on Earth. Was he reffering to the Indigo Childrens?

"I saw them cross the twilight of an age, The sun-eyed children of a marvelous dawn, Great creators with wide brows of calm, The massive barrier-breakers of the world, Laborers in the quarries of the gods The architects of immortality."

Tonight, I have come to the conclusions that teens are misunderstood by most of society, especially Generation X and above.

I was talking to my dad about how if someone didn't like me, I wouldn't care, because that's their problem. He immedietely took it as a sign of anti-socialism. Okay, the two have almost nothing in common. There's a difference between flicking off everyone and saying "That's great. Congratulations!" to someone who insults you. I mean, didn't they even teach that? To not care about what somebody says? Some even take it as far as it saying "I don't respect others' beliefs."

It doesn't stop there. Teenagers are so misunderstood, it's so sad. Since teens nowadays are exposed to more conflicting and a wider array of viewpoints, they know more, but this isn't really appreciated by the majority, the older society. They still expect teens to conform to society and satisfy the majority (the older generation), but with more knowledge, this doesn't happen. Thus they are looked down upon, looked on as disappointments. Just because we question authority, we are seen as anarchists and lacking in common sense, and whatever.

I wish society would take more time to know and understand today's youth. We have so much positive things to give, yet we're oppressed constantly and told to do this, talk like this, etc. We understand everyone else too well. Time for everyone else to understand us, instead of saying "I can't believe they'll be running the country someday!"

I WOULDN'T SAY TODAYS TEENS KNOW MORE.
I'll bet I couldn't find 1 in 100 who can say the Declaration of Independence, Gettysburg Address, or Preamble to the Constitution, name the 50 states and capitals, or the Constitutional Ammendments. These are all things that my friends and I knew as teenagers. Of course we did not know about computer networking, or play stations, or rap music because they were not invented yet.
