Adults Assumptions On Tennagers

Everyone knows that throughout life, assumptions and stereotypes are

made. Whether they concern age, gender, race, class and so on, it does not matter. Stereotypes are always made in some form or another, some can be referring to positive aspects, while others can be bad.

To certain individuals, these assumptions may be true, but not every youth is a trouble maker or a drug addict and so on. As I said before, everyone is an individual and so should be treated as one, and not just as 'one of them'. The reason I think this is because I know that I wouldn't like it if someone treated me the same as other people who are nothing like me. I know that I'm not a 'Druggie' or a 'Know all' and so I do not want to be treated the way people treat these sort of youths. I
