Judgements and inner surface

Teen age brings excitement as well as confusion. A little listening, a little awareness, a little  understanding and that’s all to bring joy in this process of growing up. Teen club - exploring judgements and inner surface

Are we into the habit of judging too soon? Based on appearance (cool or dumb), based on the choices (modern or backward), based on interests (silly or smart) … sometimes we get disappointed (how can that person do that, that person looks very …)

Kids also judge each other

Teens also do that
