There're some pros and cons of being sixteen years old. For example, we don't have to go to work; however, we have to go to school.
The main advantage of our age is that we're young and healthy. We don't need to take drugs for diseases of the old age. Our faces aren't wrinkled. What is more, we don't have money problems, because teenagers are dependent on their parents. On the ond hand this is an advantage, because we don't have to earn money and go to work, so we have more time for fun.
On the other hand, it could be a disadvantage. When our parents are mad with us, they often don't want to give us pocket money. Also we can't vote and , as a result, we don't decide about the future of our country. Some teenagers aren't allowed to go to the disco, concerts and parties. A young person can't smoke and drink alcohol legally. Also our parents usually don't let us go for holidays alone or with our friends. What is more, if your parents tell you to be back at home, for example, by 11p.m., you really have to ba back at this hour. If you don't obey, they don't let you go next time.
In spite of many disadvantages of being sixteen, in my opinion, there are more advantages than disadvantages of this age. I really think that it is great to be a girl of this age.
