Teenagers these days....... ........ have the lowest teen pregnancy rates ever. The highest rate was in the '50s, believe it or not, with another spike in the '90s. We, on the other hand, have had the lowest teen pregnancy rates. ........have low drug-using levels. We are at the lowest rate of teens using drugs in decades. .........are pursuing education. From 1970 to 2013, the amount of teens dropping out of high school has been decreased by half. The amount of young adults getting a bachelors degree is the highest it has ever been. .........are hard working and involved in the community. 80% of teens have at least one part time job, a much higher level then ever before, and almost all teens are involved in some sort of extracurricular activity. So, when adults badmouth "teenagers these days" , are they jealous or just not using any sort of facts or logic?
