              I'm a mom and just now becoming a big fan of Shawn Mendes. I always thought of him as a kid. But after watching quite a few of his interviews recently, I see how incredibly mature he is for his age! Wow! The part that got me is that he and his mom have the same tattoo! And he has the tattoo of the voice graph of his family saying "I love you" to him. Aw!! What is there not to like about Shawn Mendes?!

                "Kids nowadays are smarter than ever" It seems that way because information is so accessible via the internet. Plus, schools push students so hard. I think kids are denied time to enjoy their childhood. Everyone is pushing them to grow up.

                      She tries to hide the run on her stocking that reason she crossed her legs during the interview with Shawn Mendes, this is only my observation
