So, I've recently moved from Italy to Toronto, and one thing that has called my attention and made me really sad is how bad behaved kids here are. At my school, people go out at lunch just to smoke weed and do drugs. During class, I hear kids whispering about how many people they've had sex with in one weekend. Those kids are all 15 years old. My parents had the option to move to Toronto Montreal or Vancouver. I'm just wondering if the kids in those other cities are as bad or worse than the ones in Toronto? I just wanna make it clear that I absolutely loved Toronto, it's just their actions that made me a little disappointed.

Oh my God are you serious? Teenagers smoking weed and having sex?? That's terrible!!! I have never heard of such disgusting behavior!! You should report this to your teacher or principal. I am sure they will take the appropriate actions to correct this.

I can assure you this does not happen elsewhere in Canada or in the world. I would get out of there if I were you.

Well all I can say is I do smell a lot of weed in Toronto.. That is true.. I bet the weed happens before the sex.. Or weed and Netflix + chill... Entirely a Toronto phenomenon. The city is going to hell in a handbasket.

Wait - I thought it was hard for straight people to get laid in Toronto.. I'm confused lol..

What part of Italy are you from? I am surprised you are so shocked by this. I was watching this movie called Perras (it is a Mexican) movie about 15 year old girls at this private school made in 2011 and honestly it seemed to me that teenagers have not changed all that much from when I was a teen. Your stereotypes remain the same. Regarding teens having sex... I went to good old Catholic school in Toronto and lets just say being in the religious educational environment did not have much of an effect on toning down this type of behaviour. I specifically remember hearing the most jaw dropping conversations between several female students while sitting at the back of class regarding the types of cars that where easier to have back seat sex in. Oh and this was during religion !

You also need to remember sometimes it is just people talking up things and then sometimes it actually did happen. There are those who actually do things, but just don't talk about it with other people and those who are just making up stuff to act cool. You don't have to conform as everyone is different. I never drank or did drugs ... actually ever even when around being drinking and doing drugs, just because it was not anything that appealed to me and I never understood why people could not have fun without doing these things. I honest perceived it a self confidence issue as I had no difficulty being wild and crazy without any enhancements. I am sure not everyone in school is like this. It is likely just a handful of people.

Kids in those other cities are the same. This happens with many teenagers in schools in all cities everywhere in North America.

Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll ..... Yeeha!

Get used to it and ignore it, it's their choice and not your problem. If you don't like it then remember that nobody is twisting your arm to be friends with them. Just simply avoid them and don't do those same things yourself. Go make friends with other kids like yourself who don't do the things you disapprove of.

Or better yet, OP, be friends with them, and discover other shared interests or common ground. People are rarely black and white, and if you get to know people you'll often find something you like or can learn from, especially at that age. You're allowed to disagree with someone about something, and should defend your viewpoint if it comes up, while not necessarily ostracizing or shunning that person. Maybe they will learn from you and moderate their behaviour.

It was just a huge cultural shock, people in Italy do that but it's not as public as it is here

Okay. I have never been to that part of Italy, but I would be surprised if other teens in Italy did not act this too? Especially ones that are from major cities or come families that are financially well off ( the ones like that in most cities are usually the wildest). I would suggest just trying to make friends with people you have more in common with. I am certain not everyone in your school is like this.

In any school, there will be a number of different groups of people. Some will smoke a lot of pot, some think that self-esteem is related to one night stands, there are athletes and IB high achievers, and the list goes on. Do what is important to you, you will find other like minded people, and just ignore the rest.
