There are also many sites that exploit children outing our innocent children in harmful situations. Pornography is very addictive and the internet makes it that much easier for an addict to feed their need; it also contributes to the shaping of attitudes, beliefs, and the values of individuals.

Minors should not be tried as adults because they have not experienced the world like adults have, and they are not competent enough to go through or understand a trial. Many argue that minors should be tried as adults because they know what they are doing, and since society is changing and it’s not how it used to be 10 years ago, minors should be tried as adults for the reason that they need to learn their lesson and realize the crime they did was wrong. But in a recent study examining the mental health of minors after being tried as adults says, “66% of youth processed in adult criminal court had at least one psychiatric disorder and 43% had two or more types of disorders”. Another study was done for adults and it said, “less than 35% of adult males have a psychiatric disorder compared to 64% of transferred Youth”.

Not everybody has the money to hide from the world, so people just have to deal with whatever consequences they are faced with, however bad they must be. In the public eye, celebrities are made to look glamorous and clever, but these are just fake identities. What the public don’t see is who they really are. Drug dealers, alcoholics... all hidden by these super injunctions.

Also digital culture and social media had made they forgot about the reality and live in a virtual life. “The Dumbest Generation” that wrote by Mark Bauerlein is one example. Bauerlein believes that digital culture and social media had cut young adults away from history, civic, literature, and fine arts. However, I have the opposite opinion; believe that digital culture actually made young adults smarter in different ways. There are many famous people including Bauerlein himself were having an argument with another group of people on whether digital culture is an advantage or not.
“He said that the ‘hard-core’ pornography that he was exposed to could take responsibility for the murders. However, it is believed that he may have been in denial and refused to admit to family issues to protect them (Psychology of Psychopaths)”. No matter if the case was the hard-core pornography or his family, these are both components found within society that nurtured him into what he was later on in his life. Having troubled parents will lead to improper behavior and conduct, also being shown explicit videos such as porn at such a young age does affect the child's actions. In fact, whether it was the pornography or his family he would’ve been socialized by the same person and that would be his grandfather, an abusive racist who showcased the pornography to Ted at his developing years as a child.
Teenagers should not be issued credit cards as they are unable to fulfill their finanial responsibilities due to the fact they first need a solid education and strong credit history, and that teenagers turn to reckless spending that drains their economic resources.

This fact illustrates that teenagers frequently ignore their personal responsibilities as they are too preoccupied with having fun. The recent national economic collapse illustrates that reckless behavior was the cause of many problems due to how a large majority of people failed to pay their debts.
