We usually face puberty at the age of 12 or 13. It all starts with the production of progesterone from the ovaries. Also along with this testosterone is produced. This testosterone acts on the granulosa cells which help in the development of the female gamete. The presence of FSH ( Follicle Stimulating Hormone), increase the aromatase activity of these cells. The aromatase help in the biosynthesis of estrogen hormone. The testosterone in females is used for 2 purposes. One purpose is for production of estradiol for the development of bones , growth, breast development, increase in fat composition, growth of uterus, increase in the thickness of endometrium present in the walls of the vagina and widening of the pelvis region. The second purpose is responsibility for the changes in females like development of pubic hair, acne , odour etc. But also it is made sure that the testosterone is not produced in excess. With the increase in estradiol and other processes , maturation is reached at a point where the female starts to ovulate along with the production of leutenizing hormone. The growth hormone is also produced during this time period which is produced till the end of puberty which is marked by the complete development of the ends of the bone due to estradiol. Though we may face many menstrual problems , we have to take good care of ourselves at these times and do everything necessary for it. No change's in our body should be taken for granted as it defines who we are and our beauty.
Carefree and naughty,
I used to play all day,
And jump around laughing.
When people patted on my back,
I used to feel on top of the world.
All these small things,
Brought me happiness and warmth.
But now times have changed,
I have entered the teenage,
Searching long and long,
For the love and care.
Being lonely, it's bad, as
It makes me feel lost.
It makes my life empty,
Broken, Trapped, and Betrayed.
When i was little,
I was never alone, on my own.
But now I only pray,
I wish I wasn't alone!!
Where teens try their best,
To attract people
And be the centre of attraction.
It's an age teens try to be cool,
But every time end up being a fool.
Leading them to take wrong path
Ending up making their lives miserable.
Teenage life is really confusing,
You think you know the world,
This is where many teens are mistaken,
Ending up making their lives miserable.
Teenagers feel they have grown up,
And start taking decisions of life.
Without consulting anyone,
Ending up making their lives miserable.
Never the late, teens start feeling
Why not a chance to change,
And make an effort to lose the pain.
Is this really what teenage life is??
We cannot live without friends. We try to do something impressive , we tried to become someone else just for others to accept us. Becoming friends strengthens us and puts our faith to a test. Some friends with different interests might be friendly to us and we might not be happy with it because of our own likes, but sometimes it may be the only way to fit in a group. To accept the other person before he accepts you. Also it is very important for us to choose good friends and not those who do drugs etc, though we may consider it cool. If you are being forced also it is needed to say no, though sometimes it might mean losing of friends , rejection etc, but if you have true friends they will just admire you for who you are. It is very important to be who we are inside and not change just because of the situation unless its the only situation. Never pretend to be something else when it comes to love because it may become hasty and when you change after you are being loved the whole connection between you both gets disrupted. Friendship does not come about by pretending to be someone else or by impressing others for their acceptance. It comes by being ourselves. It requires honesty to have a true friendship, and then you can start to spend time together as you will have developed the faith that it will last forever. But we should not go too far just to fit in. We need to be in our limits too and forget if we are asked more then what is required to fit in , even though it hurts. But let them accept you for who you are as that is what is most important in friendships.
Craziest in all means.
We love doing things the opposite way,
And hate to get scoldings at the end of the day.
No T.V. and no play,
Study is the only way.
Waking up in the morning and going to school.
We teens are the biggest fools.
Oh!! god when will this boredom vanish,
And we get a chance of a surprise holiday,
Which is a mode of fun for all of us,
Where there are no difficult lessons to learn.
Traveling is fun especially when you are with your friends. We teens might prefer traveling with friends rather than traveling with family. Traveling with friends is a all new experience. There are no restrictions
And we can do whatever we want. Enjoy to the fullest. We always wait for that day when we are going to leave for the school trip. We prepare the whole week buying and deciding various things like what we'll wear the first day, the second day etc. We get so excited that we often forget to take many things along with us to the trip. In the excitement we also do a lot many things which we are not supposed to and spoil the fun of the trip. We don't realize it while we are doing but realize it when someone points us out for doing the same. While with friends we do all the stupid things possible and make a fool out if us. That's what we teens love to do- make a fool out of us. We like to be called crazy. We love it when we are like that. But we teens should never forget that we have a image in the society. We shouldn't lose it. We should stay in our limits. We will surely enjoy the most when we do so.
Always causing a calamity,
They have boiling blood
Adrenaline is on a flood.
They have a mirror in the hand.
Their decisions are made on sand.
They join 'no decency' gangs.
And they are subjected to extensive use of slang.
Their principles are clear,
Fulfill their demands,when they are amongst their peers,
The chances of compromising are sheer,
And getting a negative reply, they can't bear.
So we may now praise the parents, who very rightly say,
Dealing with a teenager is like 'finding a straw in the hay'.
Especially when at school!
Girls go work-out and diet till they
faint and fall,
And boys want to grow up to be fit
Fashionable clothes always make us drool.
Touch-screens, i-pads; that's our passion,
Always in tune with the latest fashion.
There are mobiles, internet bills and mascara tears,
Heads of fights and the examination fears.
The T.V. is switched on the whole day long,
We don't want to be told, what is wrong.
Because all in all, we teens seriously rock,
And we are prepared to face any shock.
We teens live our lives full of zest,
And we really strive to do our very best!!
Albert Einstein said,"look into nature and you will understand everything". In our day to day life we may not spend time with nature much but when we do we get that special feeling no one can give. The silence in the outside world. The peace. The anger you get just washes away within you when you go talk to nature. Also nature helps us get back our mood to do almost anything. The talks to the plants , the lonely walks or walking with someone special on a cold night , the credits go to the nature. Nature provides us with memories. Also if we observe with enormous attention we can even get inspired looking at the things happening around us. It helps us discover who we are and allows us to inculcate the positives from it. The music of nature is also so pleasant. It frees us from depression. So every teenager must make some time with nature because a good nature could provide you qith the feeling of heaven. It is the fuel for our soul. We need to connect with nature. Always know teenagers question everything that happens in nature and dont stop yourself from finding the answers as that is how nature teaches you and wants us to learn. Always remember this quote," The trees that take longer time to grow , bear the best fruit"
We, teens nowadays are so addicted to gadgets that we have forgotten what socializing is. We always stay on our smart phones and computers. We have lost the talent of talking to people and making new friends. We are happy with
our friends and never go out of our comfort zone. We stay confined to our comfort zones. We have lost our creativity. Any work we are assigned, we just Google it out. We never use our heads. What has happened to us. Why don't we throw out our gadgets and explore the world. I agree that gadgets are addictive and we like to stay with them. But y don't we stop using them for a specific time. Like 5-6 hrs excluding the sleeping time. This will effects us greatly in a positive way. We will learn to socialize and make friends. We will bond better with our family. Health wise our eyes will be less strained and there are few chances of us getting those crazy eye glasses. Using less gadgets will also improve our relationships. May a times we talk to our loved ones over the phone instead of talking with them personally. This will help solve problems better. Using less gadgets will also increase our memory power and creativity. Friends,think. It will surely have great positive impact on you and your lives.
Days are gone when teens used to play in blistering heat during the summer holidays, days are gone when teens used to stay outside the house.. Now times have changed. Generation gas changed. Teens are now hardly seen outside. They hardly come out of their houses. They stay in front of idiot boxes or comps playing video games. They have become couch potatoes. There is no kind movement if the body. No physical movement increases risk of getting numerous problems.. Obesity is one of the top diseases caused. Many teens are diagnosed with obesity. They just sit in one place and eat junk food playing video games, inviting obesity to affect their bodies. Playing video games is not a sin. Playing without any physical activity is a sin. Not doing any physical movement tightens the muscles and it becomes very difficult to move our body more freely. Continuously staying in front of screens for a long period of time also causes eye problems. The blue light emitted from the screens causes eye strain and prevents you from getting good sleep.. Outdoor activity is a must. Any sport should be played in a day. It not only keeps us fit but also releases stress from the body.
The best solution of all these problems is consulting your parents and doctors. There are teen consultants who can also help you. Talking to your friends, teachers might also solve your problems. Teens, don't get panicked, keep a clam mind, chill it out. Talk frequently with adults and stay happy.
The younger ones say that their elder ones are given permission to go out and why not us. Younger siblings never look after their age. They will get what their elder siblings are getting when time comes. There is not gonna be any restriction once the right time has come. Simply complaining will not help. But, it'll increase the problems for you. More complaining will lead to parents getting more frustrated and this will delay your freedom period.
All teens, younger, elder, or both.. dont complain a time will come when everything will go your way and yes, respect your siblings! :)
Life is about staying happy. Happiness is one thing that keeps us going. But do we always stay happy? There are times when people often get problems especially teens. They get sad, depressed and leave hopes. But friends, always remember staying positive brings in a new lease of life. Thinking positive boosts our self esteem and also self confidence. Thinking negatively can have a negative effect on the brain as well as the entire body. Positive thinking changes our attitude towards the problem and we can easily solve the problem. Negativity brings down our self confidence and pushes us towards giving up. Giving up can put you into deeper problems. Instead of decreasing the problem it'll the increase the difficulties. Staying positive always will keep you happy even during difficult times and will help you enjoy the moment you are living in. Staying positive will also reduce stress and tension. Teens, stay positive stay happy. :)
Why do we lie? Reasons are enormous but usually it is to gain attention or to safeguard yourself or to protect the truth. We teen's need to understand that lying can be serious. If the lie is for our needs then we need to understand that we need to prove ourselves that we are capable and fulfill our needs. If the lie is for protection of others for example during exams we see our friends copying and when the teacher questions us we say no, this way we are only spoiling our friends and helping them in reducing their talents. We need to always speak the truth when it comes to matters of love. We should not cheat anyone by lying to them , though you may receive fun and pleasure out of it the opposite person's life could be spoilt. One lie can save a friendship for only some period of time till the truth is known but one truth builds the friendship if you are forgived and always truth is better if you are forgiven or not. Lying to right the wrong can be accepted , even deception specialists have accepted this but we must always make sure that our lie should not hurt others feeling. Hurt them with the truth but dont spoil them with your lies. So its always you who has to decide, whatever your doing truth always helps you if you are doing the right thing or if you are doing the right thing the wrong way or the wrong thing. We have to say infinite lies to cover one lie but one truth can save infinite lies from happening.
Getting angry is common. Its every humans tendency to get angry. But is it the right time or the right place when u get angry? Teens have this problem very often. They don't think anything when they get angry and react very badly. They have many anger management issues. Due to sudden mood changes due to hormonal changes teens often get angry. Even on petty issues. Keeping a calm mind while in anger will make you feel better. It will also save you from further possible casualties. Anger can also lead to such a extent that it might take someone's life. Teens don't think when they are angry. Anger can make you loose your long term relationship, a best friend and also the respect that you have earned. Anger can change your life. Control your anger and you can control your life.
Self-esteem means you really like yourself, both inside and out. It refers both to how you look and what you believe in. This is also called "positive" or "high" self-esteem. You feel good when you pass a test with flying colours, win a competition on which you have been working hard day and night or probably when you are appreciated by a group of people. But when someone makes you a laughing stock among the crowd you feel dumb or left out of the action. At that moment you start wishing if you could be someone else or have a changed look. Many types of questions start arising in your mind. This is the time you get de-motivated. This is "negative" or "low" self-esteem. For teenagers, dealing with physical changes and pressures can seem overwhelming. As their journey starts through puberty, criticism, academic, athletic, peer pressures, dating challenges, hormonal changes and a host of body concerns mixed with their own search for self cause many teens to struggle with self-esteem issues. This really becomes a major problem in teens. But there is nothing to worry. Teens can solve this problem in various ways such as
- Focusing on experiences , not appearances- One should not judge another on their looks but look at their experience in any field. This will help one another build up their self –esteem.
- Taking responsibilities- Teens can develop their self-esteem by taking up responsibilities, work upon them and get appreciated by others.
- Developing your individuality- One should not live to make others happy indeed do thing which bring them happiness. Believing in oneself will definitely help the teens develop sef-esteem.
