Teen Speak Out

BE KIND!

Posted on Feb. 18, 2014
In response to “PEACE:” Most people stress and worry about all the little things in life and get all caught up in making everyone like them by hurting others. If we all just accepted others for who they are and were kind to one another, this world wouldn’t be such an ugly place. (reply)

BE HAPPY

Posted on Feb. 18, 2014
In response to “DRESS CODE:” I think that you should be happy that you have such a light dress code. You should be happy that you wear jeans and things like that. In my school, we have to wear khakis, all black sneakers, dress shirts and ties, and a vest. (reply)

LIES!

Posted on Feb. 18, 2014
Don’t you hate when people lie to you? I hate it. I don’t get why people lie. It’s really not that hard to tell the truth. It really annoys me when people lie to me. (reply)

STRESS-FREE!

Posted on Feb. 18, 2014
In response to “PEACE:” Yes! I strongly agree! Why live life stressing ? Life is too short! Go live it up and enjoy it stress-free ! (reply)

WHY NOW?

Posted on Feb. 10, 2014
In response to “MONEY:” I also think it makes no sense to pay for sports. Sports should be free for the kids to have fun. I understand when you get older you should pay, but as a child not a lot of parents have money to pay for sports, and if they didn’t pay for it back then, why should parents have to pay for it now?

BAD IDEA

Posted on Feb. 10, 2014
In response to “DUMB CONFERENCES:” I do not agree with school starting in March and ending in December. During the summer months, the temperature gets very high and there usually tends to be a heat wave. With this problem happening for three months straight, I don’t think it’s ideal to have school because most schools are very old and don’t have any air conditioning. This can cause heath problems and maybe even heatstroke during gym. And we can’t add any air conditioning systems because of the schools’ budgets. Most schools already have heating in them so it’s more ideal to keep the school year the way it is, during the winter. (reply)

NOT ALL KIDS

Posted on Feb. 10, 2014
In response to “DISRESPECTFUL:” I do agree with this, but there are those other groups of teens like myself who do the best they possibly can in school. These students do all of their schoolwork and then they can be on Facebook, Twitter, and the like. This thought is true, but not for all teens. (reply)

GROW OLD FAST

Posted on Feb. 10, 2014
In response to “PEACE:” I believe you shouldn’t stress over life because there’s a lot of ways to overcome stress; for example, doing exercise or talking to someone about your problems, etc. Also, I believe you shouldn’t stress over life because life is too short. You have to live life daily with a smile in your face, not sad with a frown on your face trying to hurt yourself just because you’re full of stress. Another reason is that stress will hurt your health by creating heart problems and could effect your emotions, etc., which will probably make you grow old fast. (reply)

GOOD START

Posted on Feb. 10, 2014
In response to “CONCERTS:” Your parents are probably afraid for you by not allowing you to go to concerts. If you really want to go, you first need to assure them that you are trustworthy. Are you? If you feel you are, then you can reassure them that you will not let them down if they allow you to go. Once you gain your parents’ trust, it will lessen their fears of over-protecting you. Tell them who you will be going with and what time you will return. That would be a good start. (reply)

GIVING UP

Posted on Feb. 10, 2014
In response to “DISRESPECTFUL:” First of all, I agree that some kids slack off. Some kids don’t do their homework, some kids don’t study for tests, and some kids will end up working for McDonald’s for the rest of their lives. However, “some” is not “all.” In this case, it’s not close to describing all kids nowadays. You are classifying us as a whole, and not looking at those who actually work hard, and achieve. “They get a little bit of homework and abandon it.” I don’t know how it is in your school, but from my point of view, your claim is false. I recently spent from the time I got home from school to midnight (not exaggerated) working on one subject because there was just so much work. My parents always say that there was never so much pressure on them to do well on tests, and to complete so much work as there is “nowadays” on us. “Nowadays” the stakes are extremely high, and college means a whole lot of stress and competition. So yeah, sometimes kids give up. They shouldn’t, but maybe instead of complaining, look up facts and figures about those who achieve instead of give up. (reply)

PROVE IT TO THEM!

Posted on Feb. 02, 2014
Don’t you just hate it when your parents limit your privileges? Some say to put up with it, some say silence and others say fight. Which one has the largest effect on parents? Well, I think I know! I have tried countless of these things personally and have found one that has worked constantly. Prove to your parents that you don’t need their comfort and support, or their wisdom by doing your own laundry, cooking your own food, cleaning up after yourself, working at a job and cleaning your room. However, the major key is that you need to prove to them that their social support is useless to you. I have tried this method and found it is the most effective in openly telling your parents that you are now an individual. (reply)

HOW IT ROLLS

Posted on Feb. 02, 2014
In response to “RIP OFF:” Life goes on, deal with it. I didn’t get everything I wanted and I didn’t fuss. That’s just the way life rolls. (reply)

REAL JOB

Posted on Feb. 02, 2014
In response to “TIRED AND HUNGRY:” If you’re tired, go to bed earlier and wake up 5 minutes earlier to make yourself breakfast. If you think 6 is rough, wait until you get a real job. (reply)

DUMB CONFERENCES

Posted on Feb. 02, 2014
In response to “I CAN WAIT!” I agree! School should start in March and end in December. Then we wouldn’t have so many snow days that we have to make up at the end of the school year. Most of the bad storms happen in January and February anyway. It would end school quicker and I could have fun in the snow for two months! Also, if teachers would have those dumb conferences during our playtime, we would get two more weeks added to our time off. (reply)

PEACE

Posted on Feb. 02, 2014
Life is too short to be stressing. I have many good reasons why I want to live. We can change the world. C’mon people, let’s just not stress over anything and live our lives. I wish the world can have world peace. (reply)

A KID!

Posted on Feb. 02, 2014
Justin Bieber has gone over the edge. I used to like him a lot more when he was keeping it classy, like in 2009. But now he is just trying to be a tough guy and he looks silly. He’s a kid and he is acting like one. (reply)

THE FACTS!

Posted on Feb. 02, 2014
In response to “JUST PLAIN MEAN:” The young man’s college education at a local college caused the taxpayers a great deal of money! He didn’t work at all during all that time. The job he got did not require a college education, and is part time, and he isn’t looking for anything else. He is very content with working part time, so he is able to collect state assistance. It’s not mean, it is just plain facts! (reply)
