This Welcome to Night Vale fanart pretty succinctly sums up my thoughts on teenagers and how we treat them. Age doesn’t magically add or detract wisdom. There are wise teenagers and foolish adults.

Sometimes it’s easy to forget how hard it is to figure out life if we’ve already “made it.” (Which, to be honest, I haven’t.)


One thought on “Teenagers

  1. So true. And what a difference it would make if instead of talking down to them, one invited them to carry themselves as the adult they’re transitioning into. Rather than feeling lost in the torrential emotions of transition with a hand firmly reminding them where they are, a reassuring voice whispering, “You’re not drowning, you’re in the process of resurfacing as an adult.”
