Teens are bombarded by others’ expectations of them.
Their parents expect them to behave well, get good grades and do their chores.
Teachers expect them to keep quiet, listen attentively in class and get their homework in on time.
And their peers—oh, their peers!
Make no mistake: Teens are expected to dress, act, speak and be cool in ways only other teenagers can understand.
If they don’t do this? They risk being ridiculed or bullied in person and across social media.
Being a teenager is tougher than it’s ever been.
