Obviously the media has an influence on teenagers but feel we have the right to choose for ourselves - especially when many of us are taller than our parents by the age of 15, have our own „wheels', our own money, and our own telephones. Teenagers clearly need and want to be independent today – because the range of careers and the pace of technological change require fast and flexible thinkers. Surely this is better preparation life than when our grandparents grew up being told what to wear, do and think. Making the right choices is not always easy, but it is better than having your choices made for you! This is the most exciting, challenging and fun time to be a teenager
The teenage years can be considered the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood of an individual between the age of 13 and 19. Being 22, I am not too far from my adolescence at the moment; but looking back to these days makes me realize that I have gone through the most important period of my life which was pretty tough and full of emotions as a teenager. From my point of view, being a teen in today’s society is moderately challenging. It is not only about dealing with the constant and dramatic changes both physically and mentally, but also the responsibility that comes with maturity, which I suppose, is the most significant part about growing up. However, without a doubt, it is undeniable that there are a handful of positive things about being a youth in this day and age.
When we hear the word teenager, we think of the time were wrong choices are made all while trying to become an adult through a path of trial and error. At the age of a teenager, most choices being made are influenced by peers and how others around them work. Once teenagers graduate from high school, the urgency to move out and be on their own overwhelms most teenagers minds. Moving out means getting to make their own choices whether that is on how they spend their day or something more complicated like education choices. Teenagers often attempt to break away from living under the umbrella of their parent’s world before they have the maturity to function alone and this attempt is in actuality a misguided gesture as teenagers often fail.
Teens are changing and growing daily. So what was cool yesterday may not be cool tomorrow. Teens often go after what feels and is pleasing to the eye. Merchants uses teens as a target to keep up with the next big thing, teens are characterized by their economic status, socialization, and their environment.

Don 't get me wrong, there 's many teenagers that appreciate everything that is done for them, but the majority don 't. We want things made our way, to our liking, and nothing else. Everyone surrounding us may suffer because of this, but it doesn 't matter to us because we are getting our way. What we don 't realize is that there are a lot of teens, living day by day anticipating that they get what they want because they can 't.

According to Sproles (1986), adolescence is a time of refining self-concepts and learning social skills. Clothing plays an important role in these developmental processes. Demanding their own products and searching for their own identity, adolescents from ages 13 to 19 have become an important market segment, especially for clothing products (Evance, Moutinho, &Raaij, 1996). International communication modes such as cell phones, the internet, and the satellite television and social media have homogenized global teen preferences and attitudes. Walker (1996) argues that this phenomenon has resulted in the tendency for MTV-watching teens to display global teen culture signs, such as jeans, running shoes, and denim jackets.

A Good Life Some people say, adolescence is a time of the most beautiful at the same time the worst in our lifetime. The time was heartbroken when my love to clap the next hand. Frustrating, when my friends are already putting together goals and I don't know what it will do for me. I want it and I want that, but I can't do anything.
