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:
"What are teens today not ready to hear?"

It's understandable why teenagers aren't ready to hear any of this information.

Mainly because most of them aren't ready for adulthood, and all it has in store.

Though ten or so years from now, they'll likely be extremely grateful to have been told all of this, as they'll possibly tell their own children...


Often times you learn just how creative a kid is when they're being deceitful.

Homework and assignments are going to be late sometimes.

It's a part of the school cycle.

Instead of getting miffed, take solace in the off-the-wall, nonsensical excuses students come up with.

Back in my day, that first 10 minutes of class was practically a comedy hour.

I mean talk about Oscar worthy performances...

Weddings can be a lot of things: a beautiful ceremony, the celebration of a love story, an incredibly fun party.

However, all of that is to be expected. What we’re talking about today is those few weddings where everything goes wrong, secrets are revealed, or inappropriate behavior ensues. Those weddings that turn so awkward, it makes everyone cringe.

Redditors have plenty of those stories.
