We know teenagers have opinions about everything. That’s why our writing prompts touch on both the serious (Should anyone have billion?) and the not-so-serious (How do you like your pizza?).
But some of our favorite questions to ask are about issues that directly affect people this age, like What Are the Most Important Things Students Should Learn in School? and Should Parents Use Smart Devices to Spy on Their Children?
Most of the Times articles we draw from are written by adults, so we’re happy that our prompts give students a space to share their experiences. They often provide sharp insights that add nuance to an author’s argument and personal stories that give a human face to the reporting. And always, they give us a deeper understanding of what it’s like to be a teenager today.
We’ve gathered the responses to three such prompts below. This week, teenagers told us what it’s really like to grow up in a culture of online public shaming; shared how technology has shaped the ways they apologize; and wrote short stories and poems about what they imagine the future will look like.
And though we don’t round up the responses to our Article of the Day and Film Club features here, we also want to acknowledge the many comments we received on an article and short film we featured honoring the Feb. 14 anniversary of the Parkland shooting. There, students shared their support for the victims and survivors of Parkland, as well as their own fears and anxieties about being a part of the “mass shooting generation.”
Finally, thank you to the many new classes who added their voices to the conversation this week from: Booker High School; Burnt Hills Ballston-Lake in New York; Clymer, N.Y.; Etna, Calif.; Fairfield, Calif.; NHRHS, N.J.; North Hunterdon High School; Oak Grove; Oceanside High School; South Carolina; Wilmington, Mass.; and Voice Charter School.
Please note: All student comments have been lightly edited for length, but otherwise appear exactly as they were originally submitted.
__________Does Online Public Shaming Prevent Us From Being Able to Grow and Change?
Outrage erupted online after Esquire Magazine released their March 2019 cover story earlier this month, portraying the quintessential “American Boy” a white, middle-class boy. People ridiculed not only the magazine, but also the subject of the story: 17-year-old Ryan Morgan. In a related Op-Ed, Robyn Kanner argues that online public shaming like this prevents people, especially teenagers, from being able to learn, grow and change.
In this Student Opinion question, we asked students if they agreed with Ms. Kanner. They shared with us what it’s like to grow up in a culture of digital shaming, and the way it has both opened their eyes and scared them into silence.
Should teenagers be held to the same standards as adults?
As a very average teenager i believe that it is very unfair to judge someone for their thoughts and actions as a teenager. We often say without thinking and simply think what our peers think. We go with what everyone else is doing and that is why often times a lot of teens make bad decisions. We are pressured to do what everyone else is doing without even realizing the pressure is there.
— Thomas, silverton30
Teenagers are not oblivious and blind. They know their actions, and infantilizing and pitying them to avoid addressing their genuinely problematic actions is part of the problem. Not checking these actions in formative years paves the way for them to do the same as adults. While public shaming and dogpiling is extreme, you can’t brush over bad things by saying “he was just a kid.” Being a kid doesn’t change that you have to check and change problematic behavior.
— Faye, Chicago
Our legal guardians influence us more than we realize, however adolescents should not be held to the same standard because we have more people around us during the day that shove their thoughts and beliefs on us. Therefore, we haven’t had a chance to figure out our own thoughts because we constantly have other people’s words impacting us when we don’t realize. It is unfair for us to compare adolescents to the standards of adults because of the countless influences adults don’t face, and we unrightly judge our peers because our society has justified it as a way of life.
— Brooklyn Waller, Bryant High School, Arkansas
I cannot say that all teenagers shouldn’t be judged or criticized by there actions and opinions. Although people can change, we cannot excuse harmful behavior or opinions at any age.
— Caroline, Northbrook
Adolescence is a time for us teenagers to be exploring the world around us and developing our worldview, and throughout this process of growing up, I have witnessed the ideologies of my peers and I develop in nuance and maturity … Knowing the severity of digital shaming and the potential of teenagers to change, I do not believe it is fair to hold teenager’s online statements to the same level of scrutiny as adults as criticism online has a greater danger of hurting a teenager or promoting dogmatism instead of fostering growth.
— Rachel Sweningson, Bryant, Arkansas
It is commonly said that teenagers are young and dumb and are just exploring their values and beliefs, but at what point does that turn from exploration to being disrespectful without having to be held accountable for one’s actions. I do believe that people should be held accountable for rude actions as a teenager, because those actions do not go away or change, they are just there, sitting in the past.
— Lainey Broussard, Houston, Texas
To be a teenager in the modern era is still like being a teenager, you’re awkward, scared, and harassed for doing something different. The key difference is that now complete and total strangers are harassing teens now too, all thanks to the internet. I do fear being shunned for what I believe, as would any human. As such, I do try to be more thoughtful toward others. I worry so much that i might offend someone to the point i may just not talk.
— Ben Smith, Hoggard High School (Wilmington, N.C.)
The good and the bad of “call-out culture”
I’m sure you’ve heard the saying “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Think about all the times you’ve made mistakes, and how you’ve learned from those mistakes. What if you never got the chance to “try, try, again?” If the first time you made a mistake that was the only impression people had of you and you didn’t get the chance to learn and grow? That is what public shaming is doing to us.
Since we Iive our lives so publicly, impulsively tweeting and posting whatever comes to our mind, a lot of our mistakes and not-so-proud moments are out there for the world to see—forever. Then our mistakes become the only view people have of us, an out-of-context snapshot that provides an incomplete, biased view of our character. Even if what we say doesn’t go viral, its just a google search of our name away. We don’t get the chance to explain ourselves, to grow and change as a person, or to develop our views and opinions because people will judge us before we’ve had the chance.
— Gillian Konko, Houston, Texas
Criticism is a big part of online culture, and for a very good reason. People will almost always want to say something about everything, and the allure of doing so without giving away your identity is often too strong to resist. Criticism, therefore, is very important, and I believe all people have the right to criticize and to be criticized. However, I believe that all criticism should be nuanced.
— Thomas D., J.T. Hoggard High School
I am definitely more careful about what I post online because I know that it could offend or upset other people, which I don’t want to do. I think if people were kinder online in their critiques, then the teenager who posted something would be able to learn from it. However, usually the shaming is a complete bash of the person which could deter them from ever sharing again. This doesn’t help them learn anything; it just hurts them and makes them fearful. Kinder critiques and proper guidance for people would help them learn and change to become better people.
— Maddy Chen, Northbrook, IL
If we obsess over people’s past then it’s possible they will be afraid to ever express themselves for fear of it coming back to haunt them … I purposefully don’t put anything controversial online because I know it will be permanent, and in case I change as a person later in my life I don’t want to have to worry about that. I think that it’s good for people to know that things they say on the internet can come back for them, but I also think it’s dangerous to have a culture where we immediately condemn people for parts of their past we find.
— Dylan Thiessen, Hoggard High School, Wilmington, NC
I believe that the best way to counteract this problem is to simply work to persuade others rather than persecute them. There’s always a chance that someone could change, like Kanner did, and come to see your point of view. But forcing ideas upon others, even if they’re right, can mar your argument in the eyes of someone else, making all debate pointless. In conclusion, while it may seem that our rage-based internet culture is working to make progress, it might be hurting more than helping.
— Ashley Anderson, Hoggard High School, NC
Public shaming forces an artificial change in people who want to avoid being the subject of constant harassment. For example, look at how arguments for Trump’s border wall play out. If you argue for the wall, you’re publicly shamed and called a racist bigot. So, to avoid that outcome, people (specifically teenagers, who are generally more worried about their public image) stay silent. Silence may feel good at the time, but silence doesn’t solve problems.
Digital public shaming not only stunts the growth of the teenage mind and ideas, it also stunts the growth of fruitful and equal discourse on emotionally charged issues. Overall, I don’t want to live in a culture where ideas can be moderated through public harassment via social media; regardless of what I agree and disagree with, no one should have to be afraid to share their opinion to the general public.
— Alex Mohler, Bryant High School
… As a teenager growing up in a society like this, I agree that it restricts growth in a lot of ways. Ever since seeing hate comments left on videos as an eleven year old, I’ve had a lingering fear of having any social media presence, to avoid confrontation for a post I made or a comment I left. Due to this, I believe some part of my growth has been stunted; I’m often too scared to put myself out in the world because I believe backlash will be inevitable. I’m scared that I will upset someone, somehow. If I’m always worrying about pleasing everyone, when will I ever learn what I believe is right or wrong?
— Michelle Lamas, Hoggard High School, Wilmington, NC
I believe that people can change, because I know that my views on multiple topics have changed over the course of months or years just based on the fact that I have become more knowledgeable on those topics. A large part of changing your views and even developing new ideas come from listening to what other people have to say and communicating your ideas with those people.
— Matthew Miller, Hoggard High School, Wilmington NC
__________How Do You Apologize?
In “How We Apologize Now,” Lindsey Weber writes about the growing phenomenon of digital apologies from celebrities. This inspired us to ask students about how they apologize now that we live in a world where we spend much more time connecting with people online than we do face-to-face.
Their responses were mixed. Some said an apology is meaningful only if it’s made in person, while others argued that, in today’s digital world, an apology is an apology, no matter how you do it. They also shared helpful dos and don’ts for saying you’re sorry.
A sincere and meaningful apology should be made in person
I believe new technologies have made apologies less significant now too. A sincere apology should be given in person. If you are really sorry you should go look the person in the eye, admit to your mistake, and tell them you will try to change or not repeat the hurtful action. I believe digital apologies just don’t get the point across. The offended person will still be hurt and the offender can’t seen the person’s emotions that they have hurt.
— Anonymous, Siskiyou County
One thing that makes an apology sincere, Is when it comes straight from the person mouth who is giving the apology. In my opinion apologizing over a screen is like breaking up with someone over text message, disrespectful and insincere. Although I can understand were each famous person is coming from when they are trying to apologize to millions, A video, or a live chat would be better then a caption or a screenshot from ones notes … Because apologies determine the trust we are receiving from a person, and how strong our relationship is. I would never sacrifice a strong relationship, because I wrote the apology over notes.
— Isabella Clucas, Hoggard High school , Wilmington NC
Honestly, I think digital apologies take away the point of and apology. An apology is to show sincerity in how sorry you are that something happened; it’s supposed to be from the heart, showing you actually care about the subject.I’ve received plenty of digital apologies, but I haven’t accepted many. It just tells me you don’t care enough about me to come to me in real life and exclaim your “sorrow”. Fixing a friendship, to me, is worth more effort than a text that took ten seconds to type and send.
— Alexandra Pechlivanidis, Hoggard High School
I have received many digital apologies over the years and personally, for me, changed my view of the person who was apologizing to me. I am a very shy introverted person, so talking to people in person is hard for me. So, when I see someone taking their time to come up and apologize to me in person, I have a little more respect for them and I acknowledge the fact that they stepped out of their comfort zone. It makes me feel good about myself because it shows that this person obviously cares about me. This is not only benefiting you but also the person that is apologizing to you. They feel a sense of satisfaction that they wouldn’t receive when shooting an apology through text. With today’s society, it is getting so much harder for people to communicate face to face. By apologizing in person I believe this will make our generation stronger, and bring us all closer together.
— Shelby, Etna, Ca
Digital apologies are acceptable — most of the time
Of course, little apologies like, “I’m sorry I ripped your paper” or “I didn’t mean to step on your foot” are reasonable ones to be digital. But big apologies like, “I’m sorry I yelled at you earlier” or “I shouldn’t have lied” should be genuine, and therefore given in person. I feel like in this world, more often than not, apologies are being digitally normalized. But I think we can all agree that’s not a great thing to normalize.
— Sierra, Etna
Personally, I have given my friends many digital apologies. I have a problem with confrontation and I can never find the confidence to speak to my friends about problems face on. I can definitely say its pretty obvious this way to tell when someone isn’t actually sorry … Face to face apologies are always best, but the start with a digital apology is a good way to begin.
— Abigail Billings, Hoggard High School, Wilmington, NC
I personally apologize digitally because when I’m apologizing, I’m normally apologizing to one of my friends in my age group. And we understand each other better digitally. I do tend to use emojis as well when I apologize to show my regretness or whatever. BUT when I’m apologizing to someone like my parents, then I apologize face to face. In certain situations other alternatives could be taken. Personally apologizing digitally is more easier and better.
— Oscar, Florida
In the past, I’ve both given and received digital apologize, as most people nowadays have. It is not right and not just to call these apologies wrong, or worse than any other form like a face to face one. At the end of the day, it’s all just preference and overthinking whether or not someone is going to think that you are scared of facing your wrong and apologizing. But you are not, you’ve done it, and got the same message across in a more convenient way for the both of you, or at least that’s what most people believe in today, and do every single day. A good apology needs to face the wrong that you have done, and state how you are going to improve from here on out, becoming a better person each day.
— Bogdan Taran, Northbrook, IL
The best apologies are heartfelt and well thought out such as the ones in the article. These noticeably took time, editing and most importantly sincerity. More people should write apology letters in a Notes app. This is a great starting place for developing apologies, creating more well-defined and concise messages due to the revision process. Like mentioned in the article, Taylor Swift, Drake, and Pete Davidson are the celebrities that use Notes app but didn’t screenshot a picture. They used the app as a starting point and then created the apology with clear thoughts and intentions.
— Kathryn Meehan, Hoggard High School, Wilmington, NC
Hiding behind a screen
Like so many listed, I have to admit that I am guilty of this. I think that most apologies that are delivered digitally aren’t done so because they aren’t genuine, but because it’s so much easier to ask for forgiveness from the comfort of your couch, hiding behind a screen. When you’re face-to-face with that person, you either get too embarrassed to admit your mistake, or you’re too scared that it won’t be accepted. Somehow, whether it be to an offer of forgiveness or a dating request, people fear a corporal rejection more than a digital one, which encourages them to send these messages from a screen.
— Diya Jain, New Jersey
“Sorry.” Receiving that from a bubble over text has never relieved me from whatever situation led to it. I’ve always preferred an in-person apology, but I VERY rarely get those now. Living in the social media age has taken such a toll on the quality of our conversations that many are uncomfortable having in-person conversations. These awkward feelings towards face-to-face convos cause us to resort to typed characters on a screen to let out our thoughts and feelings. However, this method of communication is very dangerous …
Our minds receiving that text can pick apart every detail. “Why did he capitalize that?” “She put a period … she’s obviously mad!” While the person on the other end may have had no intentions to send off “negative vibes.” Then, the argument begins: “Why are you mad at me?”So many arguments can be prevented with a phone call. Talking face-to-face allows for optimum communication. If I ever got into a situation with a person that ended in them having to apologize, I would 100% prefer a phone call or to be apologized to in person because one, it’s way more personal, and two, it gives me the peace of mind that they are being genuine.
— Emma Coleman, Hoggard High School, Wilmington, NC
The only struggle with apologizing face to face is sometimes it can be very nerve racking, and for some people who are not very social it can seem almost impossible to do. I think that is why so many apologies are sent through text. But I also think that for some people it is tough to face the truth. Most of the kids in our generation now do everything through their phone so that they can hide. They don’t want to feel the agony of being wrong so they apologize through text or phone call. But like I said earlier, the most genuine and most heartfelt way to apologize in my opinion is in person, and then after just shoot them a text just to tell them how sorry you are.
— Trey Clucas, Hoggard High School
The dos and don’ts of saying you’re sorry
I think admitting that you made a mistake and then explaining what you are going to do to not make it again, really leaves no room for the apologizee (forgive my phrasing) to be mad, at least at the apology.In short, if you want an effective apology, start by acknowledging what you did wrong, explain what you will do to NEVER do this again, and finish by passive-aggressively insulting the one you are apologizing to for being so sensitive. The last part has … mixed results.
— Justin Pfeifer, Hoggard Highschool Wilmington, NC
I think that the best apologies are when the offender realizes what they have said has caused offense and they are genuinely sorry for being insensitive. With the observance of their offence, they now know not to do or say whatever it is they did that caused a negative reaction. A lot of people don’t care if they offend people, their apologies are in genuine and they continue offending others, making no changes.
— Dana Mormando, Hoggard High School, Wilmington NC
An apology should consist of recognition of wrongdoing, and an expression of remorse for the event. Bad apologies are not sincere and often take the approach of blaming anything but self. Many times the wrongdoer will even guilt the recipient to make themselves feel better …Apologies are of importance because they can build and strengthen a relationship when an individual can take responsibility for their shortcoming or mistakes. It shows the love and respect one has for another when they can admit to their flaws, and hopefully aim to improve themselves. It can be corrosive, though, if one is only giving excuses or continuously having the same problem, promise to change, and producing no growth.
— Hannah Jade, Etna, CA
On one school trip, a certain classmate of mine relished in taking every opportunity to make jokes at my expense or insult me. In addition, all the boys had to collectively sleep in the same area, including me and him. After dark, he would talk and talk about how stupid or how uncapable I was without relenting for all the others to hear — it was probably the worst couple days of my life.
Fortunately, the counselors overheard him and asked him to stop. After a few days, the kid walked up to me and handed me a crumpled piece of paper silently. It read, without punctuation, something along the lines of, “i am sorry that you didn’t feel like you were at the center of your friend group it’s not like I was trying to make you feel bad or anything”. He then reverted to, “the age-old tendency [of getting] defensive, blowing out what should be a simple ‘sorry’ into a long and winding tale of excuses” (Weber). For me, it was an insult to receive that “apology”. It was fairly obvious that he had been forced to write it by the counselors and in his own way, he rebelled by making it as emotionally and grammatically inept as possible.
— Andrei Mistreanu, Hoggard High School, Wilmington, NC
I think the best apologies are shown through actions rather than words and that’s why voicing your plans to change for the better make apologies better. If a celebrity says their going to educate themselves after making a racist remark, for example, they should ACTUALLY DO IT, and not just for show.
— Marie, South Carolina
Apologizing for something you’ve done wrong, is very vital to a good relationship. Whenever I verbally hurt one of my friends, usually due to stress or carelessness, I try my hardest to let them know I didn’t mean what I said. Most of the time I say something wrong to my friends, it’s usually because I am stressed out and don’t think that what I say and how I say it will affect anyone. We all have our bad days and sometimes when things aren’t going our way, we resort to taking it out on people we are closest to. That’s why it is important to make right what you’ve done wrong and apologize.

__________What Story Could This Image Tell?
Our most popular Picture Prompt of the week, “Tech Gadgets,” invited students to use their imaginations to begin a short story or poem inspired by the above illustration.
Many played off the same theme: the future. From a poem about how “the future is made” to tales of time travel, apocalypse and robots, each of these creative pieces left us wanting to know what would happen next.
What the future might be
The projections of what the future might be, Are only based on our current reality, The future is made not by one view, But is an evolution of ideas all rolled into one, So the image you hold inside of your head, Of the gadgets, widgets or thingy mibobs, Are merely a potential fragment of what will become.
— Julia, Spain
It was finally finished. The master cube. So much could be created with this masterpiece. It was amazing. It had created my new robodog almost instantly. Simply enter a blueprint and it becomes reality. My boss was really insistent on getting this project finished, even more so than usual. He must be excited for the things he can create. I know he has some blueprints already ready to go. I got up off the generator and packed up my tools into my bag. “Khanaki-1, guard the camp until I return” I say to my robodog, slinging my bag over my shoulder and picking up the cube gingerly. The metal dog gets up from his resting place and starts pacing the perimeter of my camp, watching over my generator and other possesions. “Good boy!” I say with a grin. He works perfectly.
I head out to my bosses camp which isn’t too far. I see he has guests so I enter his huge office quietly, knowing he will want to know of this immediately. “— should be done any day now. Once we have the master cube we can simply give it the blueprint and it will generate our nuclear weapon arsenal to tenfold what it is now. No one will ever stand up to us again!” I overhear my boss say as I walk in. I suddenly want to turn around and walk right back out of this room. But I couldn’t, they had seen me. “Ah, Rikki, so nice of you to join us. And with the cube no less. Is it finished?” My boss had turned to me with a small smile, but his eyes were ice cold. A few people moved to block my exit. I wasn’t leaving.

2019, the year before the explosion
Suki could feel the warmth of her electro-gloves and she pushed the button on her newest creation, a time machine. She saw the button glow yellow and shut her eyes in anticipation. She set the time back to the year 2019, before the explosion. She held the box tightly in her hands, trembling with fear and excitement. She could smell her grandmothers cookies that she used to make for her back when there were grocery stores to buy the ingredients. Finally, Suki opened her eyes and standing right in front of her was her grandma smiling at her with bright eyes. Behind her was a plate full of her delicious cookies.

It had been a while since Shana had any type of human interaction. She was left behind in the wreckage of the city that was built mainly of technology … but did that really matter now? Shana was ten when the incident happened, but as the years progressed, she lost track of her age. It was almost like the days before technology. Except for one thing. Her robot-dog, Robotus.
He was the only thing left. Her family … who knew what happened to them. The only memory Shana had of her previous life was living in the outskirts of the advanced city, barely living off of whatever scraps her poor parents brought back every other night. For such an advanced society, it seemed that Shana’s family was always left behind. And finally … when the incident happened … escape shuttles only rescued the wealthiest of society; royals, if you will, and everyone that was related to important people of important blood.
The rest were left to fend for themselves. Like Shana and her family. While her parents were out searching for food that night; the night of the accident; Shana tried to escape. And she managed to escape unscathed. But her parents … she never saw them again. The remains of the city appeared like a wasteland, and many pieces of technology were left behind. Shana felt in her heart her parents weren’t completely gone, and that’s why instead of counting the days until death, she would slowly build a vehicle to escape. And … possibly rescue her parents. If they were alive.

Haley was looking along the wreckage. The year was 3083, the year that a nuclear war broke out, and killed the Earth’s population. Only their belongings remained. Haley had a secret no one knew;she was a robot. The war didn’t faze her, instead it made her more powerful. For years, she planned to manipulate the UN, and turn everyone against each other. It worked, and now she was the only one on Earth. She dug deep into the Earth’s soil, and found her magical box. This crystal blue box held the key to the universe, and Haley could only retrieve the box after no humans could possibly disturb her.

Going back in time
This woman is a time traveler, and she is sitting on a box next to all of the things she has collected throughout time. Right now she is playing with a cube she got in 4000. After she traveled to far into time, all the people on earth were gone and she couldn’t figure out how to go back in time. Finally she has collected all of her things in one pile and is trying to figure out a way to go back into time.

The making of Earth
The cube hovered patiently, glowing . How long had it been since she started? Seven days? More? It was hard to remember. All she knew was that it was the next in a long, long line of failed creations. The last one she had created had burst into shards of metal and rock. The one prior had twisted in on itself, like a swirling red eye. Even more failures, and no progress.
She turned to her only companion, who sat idly by. He never said much, only speaking words of comfort when she felt lost. He had been with her through this entire endeavor. He was the only one that trusted in her experiments. The rest of them called her crazy, screaming that it would never work. Give up your dream! It’s not worth it!
She sighed, releasing the upper corner of the cube. It’s colors shifted, a subtle green replacing some of the tranquil blue. Would this one work? How would she know? Whispers of failure echoed in her mind, but she persisted. She had to. It was what she was born to do.
As the day turned to night, she made her final touches. Standing back, the cube was now a beautiful display of lights and color. It was good. Her heart swelled. This might be the one!
She smiled at her friend. “What do you think we should call this one?”
Her companion didn’t respond, instead walking to her side to marvel at her newest creation.
”No suggestions?” She tapped her thick glasses, deep in thought. “Hmm … Let’s call this one … ”

The floating orb
“This was Log Date 6.17.2053. Signing out for today”. The women with goggles said into her recording device as her companion walked beside her.
“When are we going to find something interesting? Like a satellite to space or something. We have been searching for a couple of weeks and still found nothing.” She signed out, feeling the flow of air glide between her teeth. The dog, only having few responses, barked and trotted ahead.
The girl followed her mechanical dog, pulling up a search engine on her handheld device. Her mind was distracted which resulted in her tripping over. “Hey! I told you not to sto-” The girl barked at her companion but soon stopped as she realized what she tripped over.
It was a floating orb. It looked like it hovered over a platform.“Ugh, like I’ve seen those every spaceship wreck I’ve been too.” She remarked with sarcasm.
Signing out, she went to search for her dog. Just as she did, the girl heard the dog’s robotic bark. Interested to see what stirred the dog, she walked over. Her eyes widened and sparkled with excitement.
“Hello ….whst cna I help yuo wi..” The floating cube’s speech was mangled and hovered over the head of the dog.“Aww you poor thing! Your auditory systems are down!” She plopped down on a rectangular box and activated her gloves. She could barely contain herself as she scanned the cube for its technologically advanced features.
“Let me fix you. Then you can join our fray and make this journey exciting!”
