10 most important things in the mind of an average western teenager

Do we pay attention to our teenagers and how they are growing faster than we can meet up. Knowledge is power, and good information is salvation. Like many parents do misread, 'oh Dave is such a nicely young man' and Megan 'is the best I ever had'. As much as we don't want to admit, there is a list of the 10 most important things in the minds of an average western teenager in descending order (source: KDISCO). 
  1. TV shows, social media and entertainment
  2. Peers
  3. Sex
  4. Fashion and Fad
  5. Fun times e.g PlayStation. see the rest after the cut
  6. Party 
  7. Family
  8. Shopping
  9. College
  10. Future

It is surprising that family ranked #7, however we should take into consideration that they always have their immediate family around them at that stage. That can only change when they are either or about to lose a key family figure. Like someone said 'you don't know the important of a thing until you are about to lose it'. Nevertheless, let us try to work around their important sturvs and aligned it to the important details of their future. We all have a role to play as parents, brothers, sisters, uncle, aunt and friends
