Well, I just read an article about healthy eating and saw how adults might actually think that all teens are vain. Shocking, I know. Anyway, the article advised parents to tell their teens the kind of stuff they’d tell younger kids like: if they drink lots of milk, they could be as tall as giants. Then, as teenagers, they’d say if we get lots of iron in our diets then we’ll ace our physics test and be able to stay up all night. The stories were ALL lies, but they’re pushing us in the right direction.
Now, I know we all remember watching “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” with our parents as kids. And watching the little orange and green Oompa Loompas sing about how Agustus was a greedy little boy and got exactly what he deserved.
