I'm not a teen nor do I play one on tv, however Apis629, I am the father of one and three more to go. My son has zero interest and one of his friends that does show an interest says he just gets online and reads. He said it's like when he listens to me and others my age and older when we discuss various topics. He also said that he learned to listen from me when he saw me hush and listen to depression era and earlier folks as they talked about how they lived.
He says he just doesn't believe he has anything to contribute (I said that never stopped me) and until he gets started with his own hives he's not sure of what to ask. But he gets a kick out of the info and the roller coaster rides on some of the discussions on different sites.
Is this the only site you visit? I found others by searching under beekeeping forums or honeybee forums or organic beekeeping...ect.
My other three are currently not interested yet (8, 10 and 11) in a forum. But in a few years you can bet they'll be here and they have a better gift of gab than mom or dad.
What I'm trying to say is, don't lose heart. Mine will not only talk bees but other things...under our direct supervision of course (and I do mean CLOSE SUPERVISION). Take care and hang in there kiddo!!!
