teenage larry

Message to all parents

- not taking your child’s injuries seriously when they’re younger, may make them feel like they can’t tell you anything when they’re older. 

 - PLEASE let your kids take personal days once in a while once they reach high school. 

 - grades are NOT everything. you can get plenty of well paying jobs now without having to go to college. 

- really strict parenting WILL lead to sneaky kids. trust me. 

 - let them be who they want. they can’t change who they are, whether it be sexual orientation, gender identity or anything else. they need someone to support them.

 - ^never say “they’re too young to know" 

- 1 in 5 teenagers deal with mental illnesses of some sort. please make sure they know. 

 - you can’t MAKE them choose an educational field. 

 - even an A+ student, who’s a star athlete can be suicidal. 

 - MENTAL HEALTH COMES FIRST 

- self harm is more common amongst teenagers than you think. it’s not always cutting (or on wrists). PLEASE BE AWARE. 

 - sex ed. doesn’t teach them anything 

- tattoos and piercing aren’t "unprofessional” anymore. 

 - if they have depression, please DO NOT call them lazy. it’s almost the worst insult you could say. 

 - if their grades are dropping for no reason, ask about it, don’t assume things. 

 - most teenagers don’t have high self esteem. don’t make it worse. 

 - school is much harder now than it ever has been before. 

 - not everyone on the Internet is a predator. 

 - take them seriously. 

 - don’t take their phones/ computers away from them, as that is severing a link to what they feel could be the only people that understand and care about them. 

 - don’t get mad at them for always being on their phones/ computers. they have friends online and its absolute hell to get yelled at by your parents for talking to your friends.

Mia madre mi ha detto che a sedici anni sono cose che capitano, che crescendo supererò questa cosa, che Louis rimarrà per sempre nel mio cuore come il ragazzo che mi ha fatta innamorare per la prima volta, ma che poi il dolore passerà. Il punto é che non voglio crescere, non voglio dimenticare ciò che sto provando adesso, non voglio innamorarmi di qualcun altro, io voglio lui, sempre.
