~ Was at first known as the “loathing of teenagers”
~ The media causes people to have Ephebiphobia the
most, showing all the negative aspects like drinking,
fighting, smoking, bullying, doing drugs, etc.
~ Others that tend to express their opinions of young
adults being bad and untrustworthy are politicians
and marketers.
~ Teachers and schools are encouraged to have metal
detectors and things like that, showing they have no
trust in teens.
~ This fear is most common and most effective in the
Western World.
Researchers have shown that this phobia, the fear of youth, actually affects the
health of democracy. It also affects social, religious, and political aspects of people.
It discriminates the young adults from the rest of the world.
There is a age gap and custom gap between teens and adults, causing the adults to
think differently and not always being able to empathize, so this causes them not to
trust the teens as much, therefore changing the teens views and changing each
generation's thinking.
Governments consider young adults to be seen “primarily as threats - to persons, to
institutions, to status quo.”
It is said that Ephebiphobia has caused some governments to lower age of criminal
Academic people say this is all just commercial gain, the fear of young adults, from
the media.
What some people think (and this is most likely it) is that Ephebiphobia is just
caused by the stereotypical fear of adolescents.
A feeling of uncontrollable anxiety when you think about or are exposed
to teenagers
The feeling that you must do everything possible to avoid teenagers
The inability to function normally because of your anxiety
Often, the knowledge that your fears are unreasonable or exaggerated
but feeling powerless to control them
