>Why not ask adults?   Leave a comment

>I’m wondering why teens distance themselves from adults? Why do teens start looking towards each other for realationship advice and not to older adults that have been thru it already?
I have a 14year old niece, who with many of her friends, has been thru 3-4 boyfriends over the past year or so. They seek out advice from each other rather than from adults who have already been thru the dating “washing machine” who have the experience to tell em what to do.
Why is that? I mean they’re bound to fail when all they get is advice from noobies!
Why don’t they try getting advice from parents or another family member first? Is it because most adults will talk down at them… .. the adults don’t have time to sit down with their own kids, or because adults chastise them when they ask questions like that, or maybe adults don’t even know how to answer important questions?

Which kinda brings me to another question. Why do the kids stress out so much about relationships? I mean.. why not stress about their own future… like where are they going to be in 5 years, what are they going to do when they get out of high school, what kind of career do they want to get into? I’m not saying don’t have a boyfriend or GF, but put that relationship on the back burner. Let it simmer for a while you concentrate on your career, job and future first.  They’d be so much happier in the long run, and wouldn’t worry so much about getting their hearts broken so young. You have the potential to make an amazing future for yourself. Make the best of it.
