Teens And Forums

Teenagers and forums are normally a great mix (if they are correctly aimed at them). They provide teens with great resources, information and they can help build a better social life, their self-confidence and self-esteem.

Forums Designed For Teens

Forums that have been designed for teenagers often include topics such as:

  • + Help and Advice
  • + Sports
  • + Gaming
  • + Chat (general chat/not a chat room)
  • + Free Graphics (web graphics/Display Pics etc)
There are other hot topics but ill let you find them for yourself.

Another popular thing is to split certain forums/part of forums into boys/girls only sections, this allows them to talk about more personal stuff (normally sex related topics) without being pressured / embarrassed by the other sex.

What Do Forums Provide?

Forums can provide teens with a meaning, a place where they can be their self, and a place where they can be accepted for who they are on the inside and not for how they look outside. This in turn creates an environment where teens can communicate without any fears of discrimination and helps builds social skills, confidence and self-esteem.

Why Is It A Good Idea?

Forums that allow teens to voice their opinions, give advice and be their self are always a good idea as they empower teens to say things that they would not normally say because of embarrassment and/or because of peer-pressure.

Round Up

So to round this article up, if your making a website aimed at teenagers then it is a positive to have some sort of forum available where they can voice their opinions and speak their minds.

I am a 18yr old youth worker (as of 2005) who not only works with teenagers as a living, but still has a brain of a young teen, so i can use my ups and downs in life to help guide other teens into the right path.
