There are several periods of time in the life of a person. We name them as baby, toddler, child, teen, young adult etc. The more we mature, the more we learn about how to behave and what is right. However, as kids and teens, we often do very rebellious things. Answer this test honestly and let's find out how rebellious YOU were as a teen!

A Born Rebel!
Wow! You weren't just rebellious; you were James Dean on a rampage! It seems like you had quite a rough or adventurous childhood and teen years. In any case, it was hard to stop you from doing whatever it is you set yourself to do. You were as rebellious as they come! We hope you've had some time to find more peace in your life since then, and you've probably found ways to use this determination to your advantage.
While you didn't make your parents' hair turn white, you probably are responsible for a few gray hairs here and there! From your answers it seems you were quite the rebel in your youth, stopping shy of getting into life-altering problems, but taking a lot of risks anyway. This is a stage many should go through, as it makes us more aware of what to watch out for in our own children. We hope you've learned from your rebellious days!
You were a bit rebellious in your youth, but no more than any other teen, and less than many. You got along well with your parents, studied and did what you could to make them proud. That said, here and there you cheated a bit, as one must at some age, to develop your own individuality and sense of freedom.
Not at all
Wow, you were a model kid! Your parents must have been so calm knowing their child wasn't going to do dangerous things or hang out with dangerous people. That said, we hope you learned that in life, it's ok to bend the rules here and there. After all, we're only human, aren't we? So be understanding when it comes to your children rebelling, it's a natural part of many people's life, even if you never felt the need.
