There are a number of reasons that teenagers are not as active today as they might have once been. First of all, the teenage lifestyle is more based around video games, social networking and video chatting than physical activity. Kids do not hang out and move around together. Instead they text and Facebook. Another problem is that many teens are overbooked in school, spending too much time studying and in academic activities in order to get ahead and get into a good college. The bottom line is that every case is different, but as a society we have become more sedentary.
