albanian teens

Depending on the respective culture, the life of a teenager can vary greatly. Certain
cultures demand more from their teenagers in terms of family obligations than do other
cultures. For example, the typical social life of a teenager whose heritage is tied to
Northern Albania demands that the teenager honor his or her family's wishes above all
else.


The obligations and the respect that an Albanian teenager shows towards his or her family
are very important, and that is what keeps the family tied to each other, and form a bond
that not anybody can break. Being an Albanian teenager myself, and getting raised in
Northern Albania gave me the knowledge to get to know the exact demands that the parent
puts towards the child, and the obligations that the child is supposed to fulfill. The
first rule is "The parent is always right" it doesn't matter what the situation is, you
always have to listen and obey. I think that that rule is very right, because the child
doesn't know anything, and they should now rely on what their mind says but on what the
parents say. Also with this rule the child understands that the only person he can listen
and know it is right is the parent. This makes the parent-child bond much stronger.

    Shakespeare: Is He God? I hope to startle you with my opening statement. I believe that Shakespeare is a supreme sage more or less in the same class as Confucius, Buddha, and Jesus Christ. Did I say more or less? The truth is I mean more, not less. For I actually believe that Shakespeare is in a class by himself. Buddha taught that all of creation is impermanent. Shakespeare certainly agreed. But Buddha believed that whatever is impermanent is in its very essence evil. He urged us to escape the
