Adolescence means the period following the onset of puberty during which a young person develops from a child into an adult.
Adolescence is the best stage in life, because you’re finally growing up 
and reaching a certain age where you can take care of your self. You don’t 
have your parents nagging on you, about holding their hand when you’re 
crossing the street. There is a lot more chances for you to get out and meet 
new friends. You can get involved in a lot more, by joining sport teams, 
student council, and all of the other after school activities there is available 
for you to get involved in. And getting involved helps you boost your 
popularity. This also helps you make those new friendships. There is 
party’s that you can go to, and have fun at. 
There are also a lot of things about adolescence that might turn people 
off from thinking that this is the best stage in life. There is a lot more 
responsibilities to take on, and a lot of peer pressure. You have to make a lot 
of choices. Sometimes it’s hard, because you don’t want people to think your 
stupid or a chicken for not doing something. Here is one of the choices you 
have to make is who you hang out with. The people you hang with make a 
big difference. You don’t want to get into the wrong crowd, and end up 
getting in trouble with the law, or doing anything stupid that you would 
regret afterwards. If you find the right crowd of friends they’ll make this 
the best years of your life!! ...
