If there is one thing I think a teenager needs to seriously consider, it is this:Your parents are not smarter than you. You probably have better eyesight, reflexes, endurance and in many cases, physical strength than they.There is one main reason, among others, that you should listen to advice from your parents--even as you assume increasing measures of independence from them...Your parents are far more experienced than you. (Even discounting the somewhat different youth culture in which they grew up.) Often that experience was hard won and can be a great asset to you. Do not throw that away in your understandable quest for independence. (BTW, if you still have them, grandparents are basically parents on steriods--but you usually have to ask them for their advice. Do that.)A secondary reason, if you still need one, is that your parents (and grandparents) are among the likely few people you know who will tell you the truth--despite it not being what you want to hear. That is a rare thing--it is far, far easier to find folk who will happily tell you what you want to hear.
Hello, young counter-part of 4+4 here. Thank you very much. I am looking forward to learning from all ya guys. As a teenager, what do ya think I need to prep for anything to happen?

It's an issue I'm still working on, Egg. Mostly how to set up different accounts using the same email addy.
Another thing is to learn how to make and manage money. Something I had to learn the hard way, and am still working on.
As I get into high school, what should I do, for the school has many social issue problems (illegal substances, race problems, and high instances of suicide).
... The end of the school year comes closer, the anticipation for eight grade graduation comes closer. As I get into high school, what should I do, for the school has many social issue problems (illegal substances, race problems, and high instances of suicide). I worry, Cause I go to a protected private school which is very small, for we don't have those problems like the public schools. I look forward to hearin' from ya.
Stephen, good advice. I'm saving money in a cd account, but my parents have been investing for me, now maybe I should too.
Younger Counter-part of 4+4 here. Hmmmmm.... I'll think about that. Cause some of friends are turning into self-centered freaks. Ha Ha! Some girls are turning into divas who care about clothes and the nastiest perfumes and too much make-up!!! Yuck!!
