Teens admire those adults that are coherent with what they say.
Otherwise they tend to think adults are hypocritical.
Although it may seem that teens don’t like adults, as I said, they admire and follow them. Grown-ups need to have prestige. That is previous to build up a close relationship between children and their parents, and secondly between kids and elder siblings.
If teens have a true and real positive attitude to learn, they will follow people who have passed through the same problems. All this is inspired from a reading from Gerardo Castillo. / Photo from: father and daughter
