Yes, society and technology has come on a long way – but life as a teen is by no means easy. In fact, even though adults endure everything from work problems to debt, no period of your life comes close to being as difficult as your teenage years.Everything is changing both physically and emotionally and yet you are thrust in to the most intense situations of your young life, discovering heartbreak, anxiety, low self esteem and peer pressure along the way.
Look, they try, but they can’t always get it right. And sometimes they simply aren’t on the same wavelength – they’re not teenagers anymore so often they forget what it felt like to be one.
Longing for someone takes over your life and you think you’ll never love someone so intensely again – and you’re probably right. When that relationship breaks down you just want to give up on life.
• Independence and privacy
You get told to act more mature but you still tend to get treated like a kid. While a lot of the mollycoddling is necessary, there is a distinct lack of privacy for teenagers who are desperate to assert and enjoy some independence.

° We are told that we are the messed up generation, with social media, selfies, pouting, challenge videos, when half of us aren’t!
