View Full Version : Adults on Teen Board?
08-02-2009, 05:58 AM
As a mom of a teen, I am interested in reading the teen forum. And when I look at the "New Posts" link, of course there are very interesting threads on the teen forum that draw me in, interesting to me as well as my teen. Perhaps there will come a time when I feel I have useful info to post. I don't always notice in which forum a thread is started. Think I just posted in the teen forum without noticing.
So... I wonder how the teens feel about adults chiming in on their board? Maybe it's meant to be sort of "teen/young adult space" and I should refrain from participating, unless it's a question of needing help for my teen and asking the teens for advice?
Please advise. :) Thanks!

I never even look at where something is posted... if I have something of value to add, I do. :)

I'm moving this question into the teen section... perhaps the teens should chime in here... after all, it's 'their section'.

i remember when i was a kid...i wouldn't of liked it.... and i remember when i was in my early 20's and thinking people 30 and over are ancient!!!! ;)
i very rarely roam this section... however i am 38 and although it's seldom i roam the 50 and older, i have posted there a few times. i sometimes feel a little akward and like i'm doing something taboo. :eek: but hey.. i am a rebel.

Well, it's not just a teen forum. It's for young adults, too. I wonder what's considered a young adult. I'm 32 and consider myself a young adult, but maybe some people wouldn't think so. But, I'm also not over 50 so don't really belong in the other age-segregated forum.

well it must not bother them... since they haven't even posted about it.

Or maybe they are busy or offline. :) My internet was having problems for a couple of days here.
Thanks, Aleesha for the answer and others for input. I am going to try to be more aware of which board a post is on.

Isn't the title of the forum raw teanagers and young adults. Well, as a raw foodist, you can consider yourself young at 30, 40 or even at 50 compared to your life expectancy :D

I like how not even one teen commented here. haha.
I'm 26 and I think that's young adult.

I think it's good that adults reply in the teen section, although maybe only teens and young adults should post there. It's like advice from a raw food mom (or dad) we don't have:)

Younger Adult, & I agree with the above poster(on the idea that it's like having a raw food mom or dad)...it makes me a little more at ease, to see so many valued regular contributors to this forum. The kind that have been there & done that, & have some wise advice on what might be possibly happening. :)

Never thought about this being an age-restricted board. If someone contributes and it resonates, who cares how old the responder is?
To put it in a different light - I'm a massage therapist, but I have seen children and teens in my practice. Should teens only see teen massage therapists?
Teens, like anyone I would think, have the ability to shrug off whatever doesn't apply to them.

Well, I'm 19 and I'm just happy to have some companions to walk with on my journey
though I'm quite new to this forum so idk how much that helps..... >.>

doesn't bother me any :)

I always look at posts through the "new posts" search feature above and I never roam through the forums so I don't know where post are catagorized in the forums.

I'm 18 And I would love to have more than just a teenage perspective on things. In fact, in most cases I would rather opinions from those older than me.
Perhaps those few that DONT want input from adults should say so? ("Looking for advice from people my age"?)
So in my opinion: Post away! =]

Personally, I am against ageism in both directions. At 13 I have more discipline and responsibility than many adults, without the privileges.
"Adults", 18-20 can't even drink. The best way to keep from being a geezer is to not stereotype people- "heedless youth" and such, as
well as looking at us like we're shoplifters is hard on everyone.
Thanks, and welcome to the teen spot.

I think that it is good the everyone reads all the forums to get a balanced perspective on things! Although I don't even know if I should be here (in the teen/young adult) I am 22 ... oh well, I guess that I will just post everywhere!
i never even look at where something is posted... If i have something of value to add, i do. :)

I'm 21 which I suppose does fall into the young adult section.
I also have a lot of similar problems as teens such as lack of money/freedom/accessibility to the equipment and ingredients most of the recipe books I own seem to think I need to go 100% raw. I figure I have a lot more in common with the teens who are new to raw food than with adults who think going out and buying juicers and high powered blenders and dehydrators is just a routine thing.
I can't even spout seeds (another thing my recipe book thinks is a daily essential). I always kill them.
I wouldn't mind some "adult" perspective though. General advice and knowledge is always appreciated.
