Being a teenager comes with several ups and downs.

Perhaps the biggest downside of one's teenage years, is the looming reality of adulthood being just around the corner.

That the time when you can no longer depend on your parents as a safety net, and must eventually start supporting yourself is fast approaching.

Of course, most teenagers will choose to ignore this reality, and cherish each moment of their vanishing youth.

As a result, they might not react too kindly when being faced with certain information, if they're even willing to hear it.


Redditor Slight_Weight_7053 was curious to hear all the things modern teenagers are either not ready, or unwilling to hear, leading them to ask:

We love movies.

Movies and entertainment save the world.

But some movies can send you into a messy place.

Some topics are just a lot to handle.

That is why some films, when done right and authentically, are just too real to experience.

No need to watch that again.

When we're kids, being an adult and getting to do whatever we want often seems like the bestest, most awesome thing we could imagine.

People are often impressed by those who are multilingual–mainly because they can't imagine having the ability to communicate with others in different languages themselves.

Equally respected individuals are those who can play multiple musical instruments. Sure, playing the piano alone is impressive. But if a pianist can also play the bass and drums–essentially being their own one-person band–that is also a major wow factor.

So if you had the option to have the capacity for one or the other, which would it be?
