Teenagers are absolutely hilarious to deal with.
I know, this is probably an unpopular opinion because things can be so tumultuous and dramatic with them.
However, if you sit back and watch a teenager for a few days I guarantee you will have a good laugh. They honestly think that they are the smartest people on the planet despite having no actual experience taking care of themselves. This makes them extremely proud and ignorant. If you can stand all of the drama, I promise that you will get a good chuckle out of these consistent mishaps as they figure out how the world actually works. This is what we just went through with my son last week when he decided he was going to run away… Only to learn that utility bills are a reality in life. You see, my son has never had to take care of himself. He certainly never had to worry about an energy bill, maintaining a heating and cooling system, or paying for the basics in life. This is why it was very funny when he told us he was going to move out, and almost immediately realized he could not afford even the baseline heating, cooling, and air quality control system and that is required in this area. The climate around here is not pleasant. We have a lot of hot and cold days that necessitate central HVAC system usage. Of course, this means we have a lot of high energy bills and unexpected HVAC repair costs. My son managed to survive on his own for a single week before his roommates asked him for his share of the energy bill. After that, we found him knocking on our door looking for air temperature control respite.
