In my case, teenage rebellion was unavoidable. I changed quite significantly in just a month, and I didn’t notice it by myself. Of course, my parents were surprised by how I acted so differently. At that time, I just thought that I was smarter than them, and I acted according to my willingness without following any orders that my parents gave. From then, I have been growing up slowly by finding more reasons to obey my parents.
At this moment in time, I cannot surely say that I have come of age because I still think that I have some rebellious thoughts hiding inside of my head. The major change since the day I turned rebellious is that I feel regretful for doing such things. That could be the sign of being mature.
When kids rebel, they don’t do it on purpose. They do it because they have knowledge. These knowledge is obviously hurting their relationship with their parents. In fact, these kids are just deeply wanting their parents to realize that they are right. Even though they are wrong, their immature brains can never understand the wisdom their parents are talking about. Parent are also too young to respond to this situation, and they get surprised by how they acted, so they respond to their kids in a wrong way. For example, fighting with them verbally. Kids will think that they won the fight, and they will keep being rebellious thinking that adults are so stereotyped and they had to be rebellious in order for their parents to realize how correct they were. They are caught in a vicious circle blaming each other on and on until the kid comes of age mentally.
