Nobody said that growing up was easy. While adults around you might tell you “these are the best years of your life,” it often seems like they’ve forgotten everything about being a kid. The pressures, the uncertainty, the confusion. There is no question that you are living in one of the most complex and demanding times we have ever known. So, in addition to all the normal growing up stuff you have to navigate, you also have to deal with your parents and a culture that seems to have forgotten what it means to be a kid. To have some time for yourself. To hang out, to have some fun. Even to play.
Sometimes it seems like the pressure is just all too much. Your parents all of a sudden seem to be concerned with nothing but your grades or your SAT scores. You try to work hard in school, but some of the demands are ridiculous. You don’t get enough sleep, you do repetitive math problems until you can’t keep your eyes open, and everyone seems to want to know where you plan on going to college. “How are you?” is no longer a real question about how you’re doing internally, but a question about how well you’re performing.
