My older kid told me last night at dinner I should write a parenting book because he feels so lucky to have been parented the way he has, when he compares himself to his friends

I wasnít sure whether to be flattered or alarmed

The moods and opinions of my teenage kids are like a fast changing sky. So different from one hour to the next. So Iím ready for the next piece of feedback and have no expectation it will be positive. Parenting really helps build resilience to feedback in that sense

Do you call your kids assholes to their faces?

Iím think if you asked him again today he would say something different because I pissed him off this morning

The beliefs are strong, but often fleeting

Teenager brains are definitely impaired. Thereís a good 30 min doco on Netflix, part of the Explained series. Thereís a whole series on the mind, and a short one specifically on the teenage mind

It was kind of a relief to watch it. The brain is not fully formed but a lot of high stakes decisions are being made all the time

Itís like a 7 year long episode of Seconds from Disaster

Teenage brains can't even consider any long terms consequences of a decision like that

You're supposed to say, "teenagers are extremely r-worded."

One of my high school friends went into prostitution at 16. Itís stuff like that, and watching things like Hot Girls Wanted that makes me think the minimum age for sex work should be the same as the age where you have normal car insurance premiums - 25. There seems to be quite a bit of agreement that this is a better age to consider a person fully mature than 16 or 18, because the brain is fully developed.

The r-worded thing here is not being demanded to do it at 17, it's the very idea of having to pick something to do for 60 years as a standard life practice at all

Thankfully I donít reckon anyone feels such a need to do this anymore - the expectation is that you will have several jobs in a working life, at least.

Even doctors and lawyers are branching out these days into project management, consulting etc.

I dunno, is it really any different?

Work culture may have changed to the point that it's now "okay" to not work at the same company for 50 years anymore, but one size fits all society still demands you to take your gamble on a profession and go die off doing that for the next 60 years. It's a scam and I hate it.
