Living as an Moroccan teenager isn't the easiest. Unless you belong to a well known family or your parents are rich, there are so many things you’re going to have to deal with. A Moroccan teenager is always neglected, and I really mean always. Decisions, responsibilities, or even discussions, teenagers aren't welcomed. The lack of communication in generations is what's a problem. The typical day of a Moroccan is waking up and going to school. They spend about 8 or more hours there. They just go to school and study subjects like the u.s does. After school they like to go to play sports, meet with friends, watch movies, and go to sleep. There isn't many places to go and have fun at. Boys have more freedom than girls, if guys wanted to go play pool or go to the river, they're allowed. Girls are limited to doing certain things. In Morocco, teens cannot work or have part time jobs. Hip hop and rap is the most commonly listened to music by the youth.

Teens should dress like this in morocco.
Teens enjoy playing sports in there free time after school.
Hanging with friends is what girls do most, since they aren't equal to boys in Morocco.
