A young person who should not be treated like a stereotype, a child, or an adult, because he or she is neither. Instead, a person should treat a teenager like they have no idea what the word 'teenager' means or implies and thereby approach them with no preconceptions at all, basing their interaction on how said teenager acts or reacts. Never treat more than one teenager in the same way because they are all teenagers and thereby predictable. Teenagers are nothing more than people and should be treated as such; hence, individuals whom you could stand to learn more about before judging.
A woman walks in on her husband playing a video game to cool off after a long day at work. "Stop being such a teenager!" she yells.

someone that does not have a fully developed brain yet. the brain does not fully develop until the age of about 24. this explains the stereotype behavior and attitude of a teenager. the brain controls most things important in the human. the teenagers brain has not finished developing in some areas.. one area being a part that tells them that "this is wrong" or "you could die from this". this is why they so easily do drugs, smoke, speed and hav unprotected sex.. as they simply don't think "anything will happen to them". its not their fault. its all part of growing up. and everyone goes through it. so fucking back off you tight ass adults who have nothing better to do all day than complain about teenagers and what they do.

A legal and cultural age set in modern America defined to infantilize, pamper, stifle, and enculturate young adults. Historically a development of the clan-phobic American attempt to shunt social constraint of young adults from the family to the educracy. This phenomenon is supported by widely held myths of "adolescent rebellion", which is often paradoxically feared and stimulated by zealous custom. see teenteen

The age at which we start to leave childhood and realize that life isn't fair and shit happens.

Often times, teenagers learn a lot, and begin to realize they know a few things, so their parents think believe that teenagers truly think they know absolutely everything.

Oh, and whenever a problem happens, teenagers will most certainly rather blame somebody else for it than themself.
