Teenagers’ vocal chords expanding!

I know sometimes we think all teenagers do is grunt but actually if you have to wake one up in the morning you get a real range of sounds! Listening to a group of them around a park bench you could be forgiven in thinking it was a group of howler monkeys at times!!  But we were all there at some stage of our lives - wanting to be the centre of attention, showing off, being part of the gang and certainly sounding loud and high spirited - because that is all part of being Youthful :)

Have you got any memories of those times?  What words do you associate with being a teenager? Where did you go to be with your friends?  Leave a comment below and let me know :)


  1. I remember lots of giggling with friends. And when we get together now, we revert to teens. Pretty noisy

  2. I was more interested in music and piano playing was my passion......then rock 'n' roll came along.


  3. I was a bit of a weird teenager. I had a couple of close friends but I mostly was happiest in my own company doing my own thing. In some respects, I've probably not changed very much since then, hehe.

  4. Oh wow - I liked to go down to the creek and walk to the ocean and back. We also liked to just go into nature and hide out. I hugout at the beach all the time, just 2 miles from my home - I walked there everyday after school. That's where I hung out with most of my friends.

  5. We definitely went silly and giggly. My mom loves that cartoon strip and is always sending me them. lol
