This I Believe. I believe that everyone that is a teenager is responsible for their action during their lifetime. I believe that they can do this in what I think are four major groups in a teenager’s life. The first important thing to teenagers should be their faith. I think that it is good for people to go to worship to fulfill their obligation. Teenagers can also take action in their religion by following different codes or commandments.

The second thing that I believe to be important are academics. I think that teenagers needed to “Say they did not study for a test” and not blame it on anyone else but themselves

The third important thing to me is for teenagers being financial prepared. Teenagers can do this by going out and getting a job to make their own money and not relying on their parents for money. I believe that they will take care of their things more if they put their own money they worked for into things they want. Teenagers can do this by paying for their own car insurance, paying a part of their car and paying for their gas.

The last and final thing that I believe to be important for teenagers is their health. Teenagers can do this in many different ways. They can participate in sports to stay in shape, go to the gym and eat the right foods. I believe that you can’t do the other three things if you are not a healthy person.
