Since teenagers are immature to make their own decision, it is vital for adults to inculcate a correct attitude towards drinking. Nevertheless, it seems that nowadays many schools and parents only focus teenagers’ academic development. They neglect teaching youngsters with a sense of individual responsibility after drinking. Because of ignorance and lack of education from adults, teenagers have not take health issues into account after drinking harder alcohol. As a result, the problem of alcohol abuse and drinking deaths become graver among college students.
However, these teenagers also live in fear of getting caught for drinking and thus, consume their alcohol in unsafe environments; typically, these dwellings are where they can “escape” disturbances and predicaments, but usually encounter more. These environments are generally unsupervised and in groups of “children” that are ignorant of responsible drinking habits. Due to their apprehension of being caught, teenagers tend to never confess to an adult of the troubles they encountered as they drank and, therefore, may further affect their experience. Thus, if the drinking age was lowered to eighteen, a teenager would have the ability to be more straightforward with their drinking and would be able to drink in more supervised locations. They would also begin to drink in moderation since there is no longer the appeal of a “forbidden” rebellion.
Teens will not have the thrill of breaking the law. It will just seem like a thing people do, but in moderation. Teens find it thrilling to do something that's forbidden. Take it from me, I am a 17 year old teenager. When someone tells me not to do something, it makes me want to do it more.
Teens just want to feel the pleasure and they want to feel good but don’t think about the other people or even there selves that they can kill on the road. Accidents can accrue because some teenagers are afraid to let their parents know that they drink instead of them calling them when they or their friend cannot drive, they decide to get behind the wheel and drive anyway. The drinking age should not be lowered because
Cristy Martinez Period: 07 Mrs. Zachan Language Arts November 01, 2011 The Catcher in the Rye The Catcher in the Rye should not be banned from schools. There are many schools who think that Catcher is a bad influence on teens however it is quite the opposite. The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger should not be banned from schools because teenagers can learn from Holden’s mistakes and teens are mature enough to tell wrong from right. Many parents are appalled and think that the book should be banned because of the profanity, teenage sex, and other inappropriate behaviors. However, there is a reason to all his misbehavior.
Simply, they cannot be arsed to bother. One of my friend fathers left when she was about 5 years old because he was a drug addict and did not want to drag his daughter down. To me the message in that case was pretty much "I love my drugs more than you. Children are not toys you can just pick up when you want to play, and then discard when you're bored with it. Abandonment can affect children lives in so many ways, this can impact the child's future ability to trust and later develop problems in the
The main reason that many people do not think the age limit should change is that underage kids will not be able to handle the freedom and will cause problems all over the country. In addition, younger kids will be able to get alcohol easier than before because they will be able to talk to seniors in high school about getting alcohol. Which could be true for high school kids, because the kids of age can charge them and make money from it. That being said, it may be a bad idea for the drinking age to be lowered to
As adolescents start to gain independence, understand relationships that work and do not work make it hard for parents to let them grow, but as the adolescent sees it, parents are trying to keep them from self-expression and trying to figure out how they fit into the world around them (Bass, 2009). Media does not help adolescents acknowledge success since the media portrays physical appearance as perfection and possessions as riches causing complicated issues among adolescents (Bass, 2009). As an adult we have all gone through angry days as a teen, but the one thing the author Lyman Bass (2009) explains in the article “Adolescent Anger Management” there are signs that are beyond usual. These signs are when adolescents become defiant by the request of others, is mean to parents and other adults who hold some authority. Another signs are adolescents who are loners, depressed, trouble with expressing emotions, have few friends, and certain events trigger them into violent behaviors.
With better social skills, more and more kids will have better social lives. We should invest in building a big place for teenagers to go. The only club I know about for kids our age is Confetti's, and it's certainly not big enough to hold all the teenagers in Greensboro. Without a place for teens to go, they either have to stay at home and be bored while doing nothing, or they are tempted to do bad things or things that they aren't supposed to be doing. The fact that they are tempted to do things such as drugs and alcohol should be an incentive for the community to address
Currently, college students mainly drink due to the convenience of accessibility to obtain substances from older acquaintances or friends who also enjoy having a good time. As a result, the Mother’s Against Drunk Driving and federal experts in health regulation have consistently fought to prevent the alcohol industry from altering the drinking age (Kirszner, Mandell 458). Furthermore, it is unethical and immoral practice for parents to be allowing minors to consume alcohol, as this is also illegal and detrimental to one’s overall growth and development. Although some countries in Europe may argue otherwise, intoxication levels are higher in Britain, Denmark and Ireland,
