READERS DISCUSS: The freedom of teenage years appeals
SOME say they wouldn't want to be a teenager again, even if you paid them to do it. Others say they love to be a teen again.
Regardless of whether you would be a teen again or not, there should be at least one thing you miss the most about that time of your life.
