    I was horrible! I was drinking and smoking at 13, ran away from home at 14 (dad dragged me home), ran away again at 15 (dad was in jail again by then so couldn't drag me home), fell pregnant at 15, settled down a lot, had another baby at 17, settled down even more. I'm now 23 and pregnant with baby number 3 and I haven't drank or smoked for years!

    Wolf in sheep's clothing. I came across all responsible and calm, all my friends' parents thought I was a good influence and my parents never thought they had any cause to worry. They'd be mortified if they knew half the stuff I used to get up to!

    Thankfully I never got caught out or suffered any bad consequences, which is amazing when I think of some of the situations I put myself into. My grades weren't fantastic though. That's my only regret. But I eventually got myself to uni and made a career for myself so I put it down to all just a bit of fun! Part of growing up?!

    My teens were about surviving. In hindsight I had severe depression. I was withdrawn. I struggled to make friends. I craved quiet time. Discipline was very strict. Don't do as your told, when your told or how your told, you got the boot or the belt. And you were never too old to get a hiding, even at 18, according to my step dad. Trying to study for my year 12 exams was impossible because I had chores that took priority.

    My 20s were much happier.

    I was a horrible teen. In hindsight I had a lot of mental health problems (mostly stemming from my home life) and I just did what I could to get through.

    Lots of drinking, smoking, sneaking out. I craved friendship but had trouble making friends. Intelligent, but I never put the time nor effort in.

    I settled when I moved into my aunts at 15, more when I moved out at 17

    Mum still likes to tell people that i was a horrible teenager and she gladly would have wrung my neck. *eyeroll*

    I'm not sure there's a word for it other than 'stupid'

    I was quiet, respectful, kind, whilst I was still at school my grades were good. But at 14/15 I went a little stupid. I was drinking on weekends, hanging with ym friends at the local park till all hours of the early morning. Talking to strange guys, sometimes going back to their houses to drink/smoke weed. Then at 15/16 I was at college and befriended a group that were in their early 20's. I partied with them most weekends, which consisted of drinking and smoking more weed.

    My Mum always knew where I was, who I was with and how to get in touch with me, so none of my activities were secret or hidden. I just had a lot of freedom and independence. In some instances, what I did had great outcomes, one of the girls I hung out with is now married to and has a family with a guy we met hanging around the park, they're a lovely couple. The rest of us also went on to grow up, and we had mostly lost our 'party' edge by the time we were of legal drinking age, so when we were out hitting the clubs, we were a lot more sensible

    I was very rebellious. I had no respect for anyone and I can't believe thinking back how big my balls must have been in certain situations.

    Thankfully I woke up to myself in my late teens!

    Pretty rebellious although my parents thought I was a pretty good girl. I think I rebelled against their expectations of me being so smart and good and living up to my potential.
    I drank a lot and smoked on weekends and wagged school because it was too easy 😏

    Gee guys, I have to say your responses are easing my heart a little so thank you. had a baby when I was 18 so had to grow up fast. My rebel days were short lived. Now my son is 19(shock!) and he has put my rebellious past to shame. Tis eye opening and heartbreaking for sure

    Rebellious. I drank, smoked, partied and wore teeny tiny clothes. I grew out of it once I hit my 20's and don't do any of those things anymore and haven't for many many years.
    In short, I was Nothing like I am now.
    I have nothing in common with the people I used to hang out with either. It was so long ago now... I think my kids will find it hard to believe I was a bit of a rebel at one stage in my life...
    Thank god social media and mobile phones weren't around then so there is no "evidence" that could ever come back to haunt me.

    I was pretty awful in that I so desperately wanted to be an adult and didn't want to live by my parent's rules, so there was a lot of fights between them and me. I was pretty horrible in that sense.
    However, I never smoked or took drugs, always truthfully told my parents where I was and respected their wishes to not go to a party etc, had good grades at school (although I left school after year 10 with my parent's approval...went straight in to full time work), and met my husband as a teenager so no anguish about me bringing home dead beats. I moved out of home just after my 18th birthday.
    I was the 'horrible' teenager for my parents so hoping my kids are as tame as me and my sis, although I have no cool stories to tell either. I always feel lame when friends sit around and talk about their teen years and all the rebellious stuff they did.
