Youth pastor, one of me thirty of them

Long story short I am constantly bombarded by the kids I minister to. I show up and they instantly swarm to me and bombard me with some of the lamest stuff all night long. Why does my hair look different? Why didn't I respond to their text of the weird pic they sent? I need to watch this video they have ready to show me of something goofy. I mean its like nearly all thirty kids at once are acting attention starved and they're determined that they are going to get it from me one way or another. I'm so worn out after the first ten minutes alone I don't want to even finish the night. If I don't respond to them they just say my name repeatedly and or tap my shoulder until I do. Meanwhile three more head towards me all firing something off. The title says it all one of me and thirty of them and I'm bogged down by their demands all at once for my undivided attention. Other adult helpers won't form bonds or relationships with them so none of this tidal wave is diverted from me in the least. Is this youth ministry?
