So what does this all mean? 

Unsurprisingly, there are no surprise!

Our  teenagers are addicted to soaps, gossip and farcicles TV. They’re into social netwoking, making friends and we must accept, flirting on-line.

This makes our Thai teenagers very much the same as any others which can’t be a bad thing!

  1. Criteria for being my ideal teenagers

    1.Their idols shold be someone like Einstein or Stephen Hawking. They have no idea who Green Day, Linkin Park or Lady Gaga are.
    2.MTV or any other entertaining channels are garbage. The kind of shows that deserve their valuable eyes are something like National Geographic or such.
    3.Internet is used for educaitional purposes only. Tweeter or youtube are idiot. They don’t understand why people have to habble about their lives every 5 darn minutes. It doesn’t make any sense!
    4.They read only scientific books. Twilight and Harry Potter are kid books and reserved for brain-dead people.

    what r u like!

    You waana know what makes me feel encouraged – it’s the same answer 30 years ago bar the internet!

    Hormones are hormones and nothing to do with upbringing, backgrounds, parents psychological profile or even the culture!

    🙂

  3. OOPS! I made a mistake in my stat table for top cartoon. Doraemon is still top but Micky Mouse is second at 5.5% not 58.5%.

    My apology to you all, especially the folks at Bangkok Poll and thank you Apple for pointing this out.
