Kiwi teenagers through the ages

BoysTe Ara has just published a feature on Teenagers and youth in New Zealand. It goes right back to the 19th century and the arrival of ‘youth’ as a distinct group with its own identity.

Other subjects covered are support organisations, subcultures, language, school and work, sexuality, pregnancy, the teenage brain, taking risks, rebellion and more.

There’s a cool gallery of pictures, audio and video to explore:

Combine this feature with the childhoodmidlife adults and older people themes and there’s now cradle to the grave coverage.

To find out more about these themes, read Bodgies, widgies, midlife OEs and the Red Hat Society – a blog post on the new additions from Signposts, the Te Ara blog.

And head over to the Pulse te Auaha, our own site for teens – where there’s competitions, information and fun.
