Kids in their teenage years often try to test their boundaries, which leads to a lot of mistakes made along the way. Despite their protests, they ultimately rely on the adults in their lives to show them what’s right and wrong… even if they say that they resent their intrusion from time to time.
Problems sometimes arise, though, when adults assume that teens are always just troublemakers who can’t be trusted. Not only does this damage a teenager’s ability to feel like they can trust their elders, but it’s quite unfair!
One teenager, for example, was accused by the adults at her school for committing a serious crime—and she was sent to the police station for it. When you find out what the “crime” was, however, you just might shake your head in disgust.
