A young person between the ages of 10-14, give or take.
Also the beginning stages of puberty, so expect your sweet little elementary schooler to begin changing in the most horrible of ways. Most middle schoolers will struggle with puberty, some more than others. Most give in to their hormones and act with carnal instinct, becoming obnoxious foul-mouthed babies with no respect for anyone-- this is due to the fact that they are confused and have absolutely no idea what to do with all of these new emotions and are trying to compensate this "weakness" by acting like brats.
Other middle schoolers at most will develop some lip, but are able to control their urges. When they go into high school they are generally more prepared to deal with high school, which is to be described almost as a breeding ground.
Middle schoolers are NOT to be confused with highschoolers. Middle schoolers are still in the "opening" stage of adulthood, whereas highschoolers are rushing through the "blooming" stage and "settling" stage. Middle schoolers are very experimental as they begin trying to find their identities, not knowing that identities are not found but developed.
BEFORE Tony became a middle schooler, he was a very polite little boy who loved to share his toys.
AFTER Tony became a middle schooler, he grew out his hair and kept it greasy, dressed in black, talked back to teachers, talked about sex and harassed girls without actually knowing anything about sex, watches rated R movies and says things to purposely breaks his parents hearts. Lies about things he likes to impress other boys. And girls. Deep inside is still that polite little boy who loves to share his toys.
BEFORE middle school, Maria likes to help people and read books.
AFTER middle school, Maria wears skanky clothes and hangs out with lots of boys and talks about boys, she also has a million best friends and newfound sisters and also lies about what she likes to please other boys and girls. Deep inside is that sweet girl that loves to help people and make people smile, and read a good book once in a while.
