I found that this podcast is generalizing, a lot. It's giving the message that all teens are like this or that. That's not true we are diferent people with diferent personalaties, diferent ways of solvibg are problems, and diferent methodalogies about life. This podcast says that if you do this or that you can change who we are or how we think, well guess what, you can't. Want some helpfully advise. If you try to mold us like clay we fight back, tell me would you be any diferent? We are who we are don't let us stray away from ourselves, other than that there's not much you can do. Sure we'll fight, but we both want two diferent things so it's bound to happen. For a time balance is nessasary, but eventuly you have to let us win, and that's where a lot of parents fall short. Hope this helped.

The only person who will ever understand us are ourselves. When I behave moody or whatever it's because I'm trying to accomplish a goal and recognize it as a possible course of action. It's true that there is different brain activity going on, but that's the screwed up version of evolution caused by human intervention. Point is, why screw around with what's natural?
