Forced to Grow Up

As children, we only regurgitate what our parents tell us. We believe every word they say without question. As we grow older and become teenagers we start to cultivate our own opinions. We start to learn arguments that go against the points of view our parents have. Sometimes we even agree with these viewpoints. We learn about the problems that our parents once shielded from us. Poverty. Murder. War. Starvation. Death. We stop being oblivious. We become less naive. We become adults. Along with all the other problems with being a teenager, you are forced to realize what the world is really like. You are forced to grow up.
