Are you in youth ministry and you've had it with crazed parents? Rollin' your eyes at the pastoral council? Tired of administration work? Love youth? Love the Church? Appalled at parish politics? Looking for some good games? For a creative ways to teach a lesson for Religious Ed? Just need a place to veg out and say "phew! Someone outside of the parish to talk to!"? Grab y'r Starbucks, turn the computer away from the staff's eyes, grab a seat on a donated dusty couch and let it all go.

What A 16-Year Old Wants

Well, you've got this or you've got this. Back to the TIME article, I have to say, I particularly liked this. She says it probaby the best:

The truth is, being 16 is more complex than most give it credit for being. It’s not all about posting "scene" pictures on MySpace, partying on the weekends, or making parents' lives a miserable hell.

It is, however, an age of uncertainty and shaky ground. It’s a time of fading naivete, car keys, and dates; it's the age where one begins to dabble in the liberating waters of adulthood before plunging into a sea of responsibility and consequence.

The TIME article has 16 articles worth reviewing-all written by kids.
