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
"I got married at 15, so I never really was a teenager."
by Brighid N May 10, 2003
An emotionally under-developed, materialistic, thinks-he-knows-it-all child between the ages of 12-20 who pushes his parents' sanity to the limit.
I used to think that God would not send one more than he could handle - and then I met a teenager.

Someone who's well-prepared for a zombie apocalypse but not ready for tomorrow's math test
The teenager didn't study for any exam; but he had supplies for chaos.

Someone between the age of 13 to 19. Stereotypes show that they have very active sex drives and love drugs, but this is not true for most. They are constant victims of ageism, treated like children but expected to act like adults.
Teenager 1: Hey move over
Adult: I am going to check your backpack to make sure you aren't hiding any marijuana in there.
Teenager: STFU I'm not some drug addict selling drugs, you have been brainwashed by society to think that way, I'm innocent!!!

Being a teenager is the first time you encounter love, temptation, hate, stupidity, and your principles. There are stupid people, foolish people, smart people, cool people, whatever else you can think of. It is a time in your life where it's like a blindfold is taken off of you and you see the world as it is. You know what is out there and you have adult privelleges, but you are free of nagging adult responsibilities. Enjoy it my friends. Enjoy it before you become part of a soceity that makes you a drone.
Being a teenager is a chaotic and incredulous time but it can be great.

The groups of teenagers, tagged the building. Said the police officer.

The center of the known universe.
Teenager: Mother dear, may I take the car for the day?
Mother: No, daughter dear, you can't. I need it to pick up your sister.
Teenager: GAH! YOU ARE SO FREAKING UNFAIR I HATE YOUR GUTS YOU NEVER LET ME DO ANYTHING YOU ARE THE WORST PERSON EVER!
