So What is Ageism?

Hello, my name is Eliza and I'm starting this blog to raise awareness about ageism, particularly directed at teenagers.
So what is ageism?
Ageism is treating an individual or individuals differently because of their age. Though you hear about racism and sexism almost every day, ageism is a very ignored subject.
For some reason, adults assume that when a child turns thirteen, they magically become immature, disrespectful,  and lazy. Being a teenager myself, few things make me angrier than teen ageism. I hope that by blogging I can help change this stereotype. Please come back soon if you are interested!
