I think children are feeling almost the same with adults. My friends often turn very violentical people 'cause there lots of studies and homeworks. And even for my friends' siblings are not very good to me, if they're stressed and nervous. They might say, "Shut up and go away, you idiot!" or "Shoo! you fool! I'm not in the mood to play with you. So GO AWAY AND ZIP IT, fool!" I think almost every people in the world might be stressed if they leave the life like my other friends. Go to the school. Do their homeworks. Have the worst lunch in the world. Go to the academies. Do their homeworks again. Can't rest and sleep before they are tested by their parents. Who can bear it? I'm very lucky that I'm different from them. I'd never been to any, not a single academy. I just study at home, with my mother. But I feel stress, just like anyone else, or even more. If I feel stressed and became angry (very very angry), I feel so much fury that I punch and kick my teddy bear. And I think many of my friends recognize I am furious just looking at my face. I've been feeling nervous, so I often curse or turn violentic person, and even can't control my own feelings and temper. So often my friends study my face to see if I am angry. I feel anxious when they're trying to humorize me. They're doing this 'cause they're scared. So I think stress can be affected by all generations and ages.

It's depends, I think adults feel more stressed than teenagers. Because, most teenagers are protected in some way by their parents. And adults have more responsibilities. But, some teenagers have similar responsibilities as an adult.

Yes,because teens have a lot of tests and homework to do.
Adults practise what they know whereas teens have to understand and learn new things and everytime be anxious and afraid of the bawling of their parents and teachers if they take a bad grade

I don't think teenagers are as stressed as adults . because some teenagers go out every day . They just play around the place where people gather to enjoy. I just spend money and time .

I think teenagers are as stressed as adults because of many reasons related mainly to school, friends and family.
In fact, doing well at school involves a lot of pressure, because they have to complete school work, projects and reports and study hard for exams.
Then, there is also the stress of having a social life and being accepted by their peers in popular groups in addition to the physical stress which result from some emotional and physical changes which can leave adolescent confused and stressed.
finally, we can mention also the stress that comes from family problems and sibling rivalry.
To sum up, we can say that a lot of reasons can led teenagers to stress, which can provoke violent reactions, depression and health problems.

Hi khan6569,
In all types of writing exams it's really important to read the question really carefully and do exactly what you are asked to do. I think it's usually going to be a good idea to have a paragraph at the end that brings together your thoughts from the text you've written. If you're studying for a specific type of exam then it's a good idea to look at as many examples as you can. Most exam boards will provide sample texts for students who are preparing for the exam. 
I hope this helps. Good luck with your studies! 
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

Could I have a question? What "Over a third of teenagers reported feeling nervous and tired" means?
This mean teenagers reported feeling nervous and tired all over 30% ?

Hi monashining! Yes. 'Over a third' means more than 33%. So maybe 35% of teenagers said they felt nervous and tired. Does that make sense? Best wishes, Joanna (LearnEnglish Teens team)

Hi Emmobe. It's great that you came back and made the corrections. Good work! You should also use vary (v.) instead of variety (n.) here. :)

I think adults feel more stressed than teenagers.
Teenagers are in a way protected by their parents (usually) and adults around them (teachers and seniors). But the more people get old, the more they have responsibilities in a society they belong to.
I want to be a good adult! ✨

Hi Doughnut
How're you?
Do you have a good friend to talk with frankly?
Maybe you might want to take your frustration out on your trustful friend or get in your fear!✨
