21 would give high schoolers, even middle schoolers easier access to alcohol. Newly legal drinkers often purchase alcohol for their underage peers, creating a "trickle-down" effect. Surveys suggest that these 18-20 years olds can obtain access to alcohol through their friends 21 and older. So judging by this survey this shows there is always some kind of access to alcohol. Age will not control the ability to binge drink if you are 18 or 21 you can still pursue the same action so why should it be so different in age if the actions are the same.
In matter of fact, many teenagers in the United States weather or without their family consent they consume a lot of alcohol. In most part of the world there is no age limit for consumption or drinking of alcohol. There are three reasons why the alcoholic drinking age should be changed to age 18; to build a great confidence and responsibility to teenagers, to avoid bad relationship teenagers with their parents, and to save teenagers lives that perish by over-limit alcohol consumption. The first reason why should be change the alcohol drinking age to 18; is in order to build a great confidence and responsibility. Changing drinking alcohol age limit from 21 to 18 would definitely to make a positive difference inside of the household.
However, the author believes that the actual alcohol isn't the problem but instead the problem is the law of 21 being the legal age for drinking. Seaman thinks that because the underage kids are prohibited to drink legally they are more tempted to do it but if the drinking limit were to be lowered to 18 then yes at first they would drink a lot but eventually they would get bored of it and they'd settle down to get their other priorities straight. Hence, Barrett Seaman hopes that pre gamers are allowed to come out so they can begin to learn to have control over alcohol like any adult. I really liked this essay, it’s something that I’ve had experience with, not so much as the underage drinking, but pre gaming before going out was something that I
Secondly, If US could change the drinking age to 18, less people will abuse alcohol. It doesn’t have sense wait to have Twenty years old the age that you're considered an adult under the law, and have the same right to drink alcohol at 18, If the age were lowered that would help promote a culture of responsible alcohol use. 18-year olds person would often go to bars rather than house parties, and wouldn't feel like they had to hide what they were doing. In turn, this would lead to less fatality from alcohol abuse. Also, lowering the drinking age would be a good thing not only for the economy, but also to prevent so many young people from breaking the law so much.
Because that’s what kids do when they’re in high school even though they don’t even enjoy drinking. Some kids turn there drinking at parties into habits and then it eventually becomes an addiction. Some kids drink because it’s just around and in the house. Do I think it’s ok to underage drink no is there something I can do about probably. But drinking when your not of age is something no one can stop a kid from doing if anything it’s going to make them want to do it
Some people have debated the legal drink age should change to younger than 18 years old. Binge drinking is proof that we need to keep 21 the age required to buy alcohol. Younger people drinking alcohol can hurt the brain; research shows that the brain is not fully grown when people are younger than 21 years old. If younger people excessively drink alcohol, it will result in higher traffic fatalities and cause irreparable damage. In the United States, it is legal to have a driver’s license at 16 years old, younger people at this age like to try new things, because of this curiosity they are more eager to drink.
If parents take more responsibility then there will be less binge drinking by adolescents. Parents have a clear influence in adolescent binge drinking, and they need to take responsibility through the use of open communication, through supervision, and through modeling and influences. The communication a parent has with his or her child from an early age is key in influencing the child’s decisions about drinking in the future. Parents must provide children with accurate and relatable information. Parents should inform their children about the negative effects of alcohol to the body, to family, and to friends.
Another health concern is the effect that drinking has on the brain, which is still developing in all teenagers. Select Federal agencies quoted that “The brains and bodies of teens are still developing, and alcohol use can cause learning problems.” In addition, the drinking age should not be lowered because the argument among the youth won’t stop. Let’s assume that the drinking age is lowered from 18 to 16. Finally, 16 year olds will be satisfied and will pick up drinking heartily.
Cause and Effect of Substance Abuse in Children “When life gives you lemons make lemonade” this quote means, when life gives you problems, take it as a lesson well learned. Most people do not make lemonade with their lemons; they engage themselves in substance abuse. When adults lose their loved ones through death, lose their job or even when they are involved with a strong relationship and they break up; they tend to become more susceptible to abusing substances. With children; it is a different case. Some parents do not teach their children the effects of drugs and because of the parents’ irresponsibility; they introduce their children to drugs by exposing them to the children.
I believe it makes them feel older more responsible even though they are doing something stupid, but then I also believe that by having curfews keeps the teenagers out of trouble it keeps them off the streets away from drunk drivers, drugs, alcohol, violence, and sex and that is a good thing fewer teenage deaths by drunk driving, overdose off drugs, being violent because of drunk people, and fewer teenage pregnancies all of that sound good. But then what happens t teenagers who don’t get that freedom that they want? They start miss behaving start getting into trouble at home starting fights with mom and dad threatening them by running away, getting into trouble with the law, then they have a record at 15. Doing drugs having sex everywhere getting pregnant. I think if the parents went with the teen going out that would help the teen out of trouble and not be so encaged at home doing nothing hearing about the stuff that their friends are doing and having a good time while the
