Grown ups have lowered the expectations of kids. They expect us to text and play video games and do nothing. It’s really grown ups and teachers that have lowered expectations of kids, and so we think since grown ups don’t care that we do this stuff, we do this stuff. So what us kids need to do is higher the expectations of ourselves and purposely try and reach higher goals than we are right now. There are kids who, themselves, made higher expectations and made a big change in the world.
