Why do young people rebel?
Two of the main kinds of rebellion are against social conformity and against adult authority. In both of them, the young person behaves with the purpose of provoking their parents' or educators' disapproval, always succeeding in doing that. This is why rebellion, which is simply a behaviour that deliberately opposes the rules, has been given a good name by adolescents and a bad one by adults.
Rebellion is not only something that can damage the relationship between parents and children, or a rejection of safe rules, but it can also cause young people to engage in self-destructive behaviour, like physically hurting themselves.
Moreover it can lead them to push away those they care about, like family and friends, because they don't feel loved and appreciated.
Rebellion against given circumstances has always existed and always will, and I don't think the way in which young people rebel has changed a lot over the years.
Words are known to be one of the most lethal weapons, and young people certainly know how to use them to hurt someone's feelings, be it their parents or their teachers.
Another type of rebellion is "passive rebellion", which means accepting what adults tell you to do, but doing it in an annoyed and angry way, keeping all your emotions inside.
I think this kind of rebellion is not very healthy, because one day that person is going to explode, unleashing all his repressed feelings and frustration on whoever is near them.
In conclusion, everyone has gone through a rebellious stage in their adolescence and
I think that a little rebellion does no harm because, if controlled, it is something which can help teenagers to form their character and their individuality.
