Having had 6 teenagers, and currently with another 10 in that stage we have come to learn some of the ways they think. While we must admit that our children are exceptionally well behaved and good teenagers, it seems that in their rapidly growing brains they look at life a little different. There is a saying that goes, “your actions speak louder than your words.” This is literally true, and though we confess this is our interpretation of the what goes on, we thought we would have fun with it. Feel free to add your own comments of what your teenagers have either said, or their actions betray their thoughts.
Here is our list of teenage musings:

When the hormones really kick in: “I’m fine! I’m hate you! I’m in love! Come here! Get out of here! I want ice cream! I’m not hungry! I can’t sleep! I can’t get up! You never listen! I don’t want to talk about it.
Due Tomorrow= Do tomorrow.
In your bed: it’s 6:00, you close your eyes for 5 minutes, it’s 7:45. At school: it’s 1:30, you close your eyes for 5 minutes, its 1:31.
