We Are Greta Thunberg
Greta Thunberg is one in a million.
(Actually, she is one in seven point five billion.)
She is infinitesimally small, statistically insignificant, numerically inconsequential.
She is a brief cosmic blip.
Greta is also a once-in-history, never-to-be-repeated collection of dreams, struggles, doubts, joys, fears, flaws, and passions, the likes of which the world has never seen before and will never see again.
Her presence is unprecedented.
And yet, if you’d had asked her one year and one month ago as she sat alone outside Swedish parliament, silently advocating for the planet—I imagine the shy, awkward, then 15-year old with Asperger syndrome and OCD, would have probably said she is just one person.
And she would have been right.
She is just one person.
And one person, it turns out—is enough to turn the world upside down.
It is enough to wake up a generation.
It is the stuff that starts revolutions.
This week millions of people stand in solidarity alongside Greta; a passionate, disparate army of reborn optimists and ordinary activists, propelled into movement by a singular human being who became the catalyst for their emotional resuscitation.
One person.

The Boss feeds a British teen's hungry heart in Gurinder Chadha's delightful dramedy
The following review was originally published as part of our coverage of the 2019 Chicago Critics Film Festival.
The Pitch: England, 1987. New Wave is king, and Margaret Thatcher presides over a Britain beset with economic troubles and the rise of the neo-Nazi National Front. In the drab borough of Luton in Bedfordshire, a Pakistani family is trying to get by and make ends meet amid the chaos — which gets especially difficult after patriarch Malik (Kulvinder Ghir) loses his job. But Javed (Viveik Kalra), the Khans’ bookish only son, wants more for himself, yearning to become a writer despite the traditional expectations of his parents and the prejudice he faces from the outside world.
Salvation comes by way of two dusty cassette tapes, when Roops (Aaron Phagura), the only Sikh boy at his school, introduces him to the music of the one and only Bruce Springsteen. The other kids think he’s passé — Javed’s lifelong friend Matt (Dean-Charles Chapman) asserts that “synths are the future” — but the Boss’ powerful ballads speak to Javed’s experience on a fundamental, personal level. Activated by Springsteen’s music, Javed finds a voice he never knew he had, giving him the courage to follow his dreams, find love, and assert himself against family traditions that emphasize obligation over individuality. But as Javed learns quickly enough, it’s one thing to dance in the dark; it’s quite another to break the ties that bind.

'Booksmart': Olivia Wilde's Instant Teen Classic - The Atlantic
Refreshingly free of stereotype, Olivia Wilde’s wonderful film Booksmart should easily join the teen-movie canon.
There’s a whiff of topicality to the premise of Booksmart, given the mounting scandals around elite-college admissions of late. Olivia Wilde’s new comedy follows the high-school pals Amy (played by Kaitlyn Dever) and Molly (Beanie Feldstein), who’ve stayed out of trouble for their entire academic career so that they could get into the best colleges. But when graduation week rolls around, Amy and Molly discover that all their hard-partying peers got into the same big-name institutions as them, so the girls resolve to have as much fun as they can before summer arrives. What better reason to cut loose than realizing the whole system is broken?
Booksmart, Wilde’s directorial debut, is firmly planted in the “one crazy night” subgenre of the teen-film canon. It owes a debt to generational classics such as American Graffiti, Dazed and Confused, Can’t Hardly Wait, and Superbad—movies about high schoolers running wild as they edge up to adulthood and obsess over the specter of an uncertain future. A blazingly funny and energetic romp, Booksmart seems destined for instant cult status, retaining the adolescent anxieties of its forebears while updating its worldview for the weary ranks of Generation Z.

The Blessings of a B-Minus - The New York Times
“Little kids, little problems,” the Russian version of the proverb says.
In Italian, it’s “Little children, headache; big children, heartache.”
And in Yiddish: “Small children disturb your sleep, big children disturb your life.”
In her new book “The Blessing of a B Minus: Using Jewish Teachings to Raise Resilient Teenagers,” psychologist Wendy Mogel acknowledges that parents have more reason to worry as their children grow:
The main difference between raising small children and teenagers is the danger involved, both perceived and real. There’s a difference between teaching your child to ride a two-wheeler and teaching her to drive a car. Between worrying that she will eat too much sugar at a birthday party and fearing that she might take Ecstasy at a rave. Between your disappointment that he wasn’t placed in the top second-grade reading group and worrying that he won’t make it into college.

Trends Among Today’s Teenagers | gettinggenz.com
The HBO series ‘Euphoria’ has triggered a closer look into reckless behavior among today’s teenagers. This recent New York Times article, “The ‘Euphoria’ Teenagers are Wild. But Most Real Teenagers Are Tame.” refers to Generation Z as not the reckless generation portrayed in the series, but as the “cautious generation”. Gen Z is actually growing up more slowly and more responsibly than popular media depicts.
The article points out three significant trends among these cautious teens: 1) teens are having less sex; 2) drug use is declining; and 3) suicide is a growing worry. Other noteworthy trends include the decline of alcohol use, as well as alarming growth in anxiety and depression among teens.
My daily observations, conversations and research among teens support these trends. Many teens are not yet dating, and most avoid drugs and alcohol to keep their minds clear for optimal academic and athletic performance. Unfortunately, many know someone who has attempted or succeeded in suicide, which is so prevalent that it’s often part of carpool conversations.
One of the reasons for high rates of anxiety, I believe, is that this generation spends more time at home screening and less time out socializing in person. Most teens are staying home more because “why bother to go out” when they can socialize virtually from the comfort of their own beds. Teens in my insight community say they are often home alone with multiple screens: watching YouTube videos, playing video games, texting, on social media, and mastering all simultaneously.

Five teens who changed the world - BBC Three
THIS is in a nutshell!
These young people know how to get things done
Too often, teens are lazily thought of as apathetic and self-centred.
But a new generation of young activists has proved that many teenagers are, in fact, deeply concerned with social, political and environmental issues - and they’re fully prepared to do something about them.
Chief among them is 16-year-old environmental activist Greta Thunberg, who has urged British politicians to "listen to the scientists" regarding climate change, while speaking on BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
Here are five inspirational people who've had a massive impact on the world in their teen years.

Photos: Climate-Change Protests Around the World - The Atlantic
Since the beginning of the year, large numbers of protests against government inaction on issues of climate change have been taking place in cities worldwide. Most of the movement has taken place in Europe, is largely student-led, and was inspired by the Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg, who has been speaking out and demanding action from leaders since last year. On March 15, thousands of environmentally concerned students in 80 countries held a “Fridays for Future” strike, marching through the streets with signs. This past week, parts of London were brought to a standstill by protesters from Extinction Rebellion, who have called on the British government to negotiate with them and to prioritize environmental protection.

Study Shows Screen Time Before Bed Is Not Bad For Teenagers
All over the world and in many different languages, parents yell for their kids to get off their phones or stop playing Fortnite before their brains becomes mush. A new study, though, now indicates that there is no correlation between screen time, even before bed, and a teenager's well-being.
This research was conducted by Amy Orben and Andrew Przybylski of Oxford University who analyzed data from studies tracking the screen time usage of 17,000 teenagers from the UK, USA, and Ireland. This data was used to determine if the amount of time spent in front of a screen can affect their overall well-being, with a particular focus being done of screen time before bedtime.
Screen time is defined as time in front of a computer, game console, or mobile device while playing games, texting, emailing, using social networks, or streaming movies and TV shows.
While similar studies have been conducted in the past, there are concerns that the retrospective self-reporting method used by participants in these studies is inaccurate. 
"Recent work has demonstrated that only one third of participants provide accurate judgments when asked about their weekly Internet use, while 42% overestimate and 26% underestimate their usage (Scharkow, 2016). Inaccuracies vary systematically as a function of actual digital engagement (Vanden Abeele, Beullens, & Roe, 2013; Wonneberger & Irazoqui, 2017): Heavy Internet users tend to underestimate the amount of time they spend online, while infrequent users overreport this behavior (Scharkow, 2016)."
Instead of retrospective self-reporting, research has indicated that using time-use-diaries can provide a better overall picture of a person's screen time. In this new study titled "Screens, Teens, and Psychological Well-Being: Evidence From Three Time-Use-Diary Studies", the Oxford researchers used data collected by three studies from Ireland, the United States, and the United Kingdom where the data was collected using time-use-diaries.
In order to determine the well-being of a participant, questionnaires were completed by the participants or their caretakers that were used to determine emotional state, social behavior, and inattention during the study.

Youth Struggle With After-Effects of Gun Violence - WhoWhatWhy
Every year an estimated 3 million children witness gun violence — and the impacts can last a lifetime. Lizzie Eaton knows this all too well.
Eaton is one of the high school students from Parkland, FL, who are fanning out to share with the rest of the country what they’ve learned about gun violence.
“There’s no way to prepare for a tragedy like this,” she said.
This month, the students visited Pittsburgh to talk about how they’re coping in the wake of the February 14, 2018, shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, which left 17 dead.
The two communities are linked by tragedy. On October 27, 2018, a gunman opened fire at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh’s Squirrel Hill neighborhood, killing 11.
“We’re all here together because of one underlying reason,” Eaton said. “We want to spread the message of hope and unity and overcoming tragedy because it’s so hard to do it alone.”
Packed into Allderdice High School’s library in April, teachers, students, and staff sat in silence to listen as, one by one, the Parkland survivors told stories about where they were when the shooting happened, how the deaths of their fellow classmates affected them, and how they’re moving forward.
“I just want you guys to know that your voice matters so, so much,” said Carlitos Rodriguez, another Parkland student. “Don’t be afraid to reach out for help. And be that helping hand for someone else.”

The Hottest Chat App for Teens Is Google Docs - The Atlantic
How a writing tool became the new default way to pass notes in class
When the kids in Skyler’s school want to tell a friend something in class, they don’t scrawl a note down on a tiny piece of paper and toss it across the room. They use Google Docs.
“We don’t really pass physical notes anymore,” said Skyler, 15, who, like all the other students in this story, is identified by a pseudonym.
As more and more laptops find their way into middle and high schools, educators are using Google Docs to do collaborative exercises and help students follow along with the lesson plan. The students, however, are using it to organize running conversations behind teachers’ backs.
Teens told me they use Google Docs to chat just about any time they need to put their phone away but know their friends will be on computers. Sometimes they’ll use the service’s live-chat function, which doesn’t open by default, and which many teachers don’t even know exists. Or they’ll take advantage of the fact that Google allows users to highlight certain phrases or words, then comment on them via a pop-up box on the right side: They’ll clone a teacher’s shared Google document, then chat in the comments, so it appears to the casual viewer that they’re just making notes on the lesson plan. If a teacher approaches to take a closer look, they can click the Resolve button, and the entire thread will disappear.

Greta Thunberg, schoolgirl climate change warrior: ‘Some people can let things go. I can’t’ | Environment | The Guardian
One day last summer, aged 15, she skipped school, sat down outside the Swedish parliament – and inadvertently kicked off a global movement
Greta Thunberg cut a frail and lonely figure when she started a school strike for the climate outside the Swedish parliament building last August. Her parents tried to dissuade her. Classmates declined to join. Passersby expressed pity and bemusement at the sight of the then unknown 15-year-old sitting on the cobblestones with a hand-painted banner.
Eight months on, the picture could not be more different. The pigtailed teenager is feted across the world as a model of determination, inspiration and positive action. National presidents and corporate executives line up to be criticised by her, face to face. Her skolstrejk för klimatet (school strike for climate) banner has been translated into dozens of languages. And, most striking of all, the loner is now anything but alone.
On 15 March, when she returns to the cobblestones (as she has done almost every Friday in rain, sun, ice and snow), it will be as a figurehead for a vast and growing movement. The global climate strike this Friday is gearing up to be one of the biggest environmental protests the world has ever seen. As it approaches, Thunberg is clearly excited.
“It’s amazing,” she says. “It’s more than 71 countries and more than 700 places, and counting. It’s increasing very much now, and that’s very, very fun.”
A year ago, this was unimaginable. Back then, Thunberg was a painfully introverted, slightly built nobody, waking at 6am to prepare for school and heading back home at 3pm. “Nothing really was happening in my life,” she recalls. “I have always been that girl in the back who doesn’t say anything. I thought I couldn’t make a difference because I was too small.”
