Teenagers & Their Many Expressions

Ok so it seems like it was just last year when teenagers modeled the fierce sign every time you took their picture.  If you aren’t familiar than here is a picture of my daughter and her best friend.

Of course if you do a search on the Internet you will find many variations to this hand sign.

Now I have noticed in the last few weeks that there is a new signature move for teenagers.  It is apparently the dab.  I finally asked my kids tonight at dinner what it was because I have seen my students doing it. Here is a picture of the dab.

Ok so many of you may be wondering why I have spent so much time talking about teenage fads.  Well as a high school teacher I really want to understand my students and my kids.  I got recruited earlier this year to perform the Whip & Nae Nae at a pep rally with several other teachers and some parents as well.  If you’ve really lived under a rock here is that dance.

Teenagers add drama to everything but I have to say they can be very entertaining.  I enjoy watching the fads and seeing all the cool new things they do.
