Sweet 16 – The Way It’s Supposed To Be
Sweet sixteen’s — are they really that big of a deal?
Teenagers of the past celebrated their 16th birthday with the traditional high school party. They couldn’t wait for short seconds when their parents handed them the keys to their first car. They the ample amount of birthday wishes one after another, each one making them feel like the top dog.
That’s how it should still be, right?
Well unfortunately, due to present day social media, such as shows like “My Super Sweet 16” every teenager thinks that in order to have a special day to remember you have to throw a huge televised party that everyone has to attend, cry, whine, complain, buy at least a $50,000 vehicle, and scream when things don’t go “perfectly.”
This makes most people think these kinds of teenagers being included in the “spoiled brat” stereotype.
So, why would you want to be one?
Why must teenagers have that huge, bankrupting, debt increasing and stressful party?
Why not have a normal, calm, non family destroying apocalyptic Sweet 16.
Teenagers do not need those fancy million dollar birthday gifts.
Because unfortunately, nine times out of ten, they are just going to resale, throw away, lose, or destroy them beyond all belief.
So to those up coming 16 year olds, think smart, be safe and don’t make everyone hate you.
