I’m a teenager and I fidget too. I used to do it a lot more. I was pretty terrible. Always tapping my foot (which still happens from time-to-time) or just tapping the top of the desk with my fingernails. Now, I do the pen thing and I have to consciously make myself stop when I realize what I’m doing and that people are probably getting irritated. I’ve found that a fidget spinner doesn’t work for me. I just get too distracted with it. So, I use this thing called “Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty”. I found it at Target and it’s perfect for me. It’s nothing like play dough. It has a sort of taffy feel to it but it’s easy for me to fidget with it and not be super distracted by it. Anyway, hope that helps. 🙂
