In a patronising and condescending letter to the editor G J Wowser egotistically contends that the drink driving age should be changed to twenty-one. G J Wowser is critical of young drivers and aims to portray them as ‘irresponsible and careless’. Wowser positions the reader to think of teenagers as ‘irresponsible’ and incapable of drinking and driving by twenty-one. This can be identified in his description of young people as ‘tearaways’. This portrays Wowser’s bitter view on younger drivers and positions the audience to think all young people are irresponsible and ineligible to be driving on our roads.
Some people say kids should go to jail but others say that they should get help through therapy for help. Going to jail would be more beneficial for them because “ kids going to therapy instead of jail would teach kids nothing except they could get away with drinking” (Thomas). Researchers support this because going to therapy only helps the child if they want the therapy. In the long run they say it would not help them unless they put effort into it. Another thing reporters say is that cops are doing all they should be to help.

People being labelled in groups is so inhumane. This book takes us on a journey on how a simple act of cruelty can be taken to a whole new level. This book also contains many uses of euphemism, this is mainly used by the Alice, who was the first person to ever subject Avalon to bullying. As the weeks commence, Avalon is assaulted by these obscene text messages, emails, blog posts etc. Avalon’s attitude to the bullying and cyber-bullying was not very delightful nor helpful.
In The Scarlet Letter, Hester’s alienation is presented through the harsh treatment she receives before she is even introduced in the novel. Through Hawthorne’s shifting narrative perspective in Chapter 3, readers are given an indication of the dislike felt towards Hester for her sin. Hawthorne presents readers with the perspective of the women in society to reveal the amount of hatred and subsequent isolation that Hester will experience once she is released from prison. Furthermore, the constant use of negative descriptions such as “malefactress” and “naughty baggage” (Chapter 2) by the women of Boston society provide further evidence to show the Hester’s exclusion from the Puritan community as she

Implementing information in relevance to how kids behave at home. Having a go to person in school is a good alternative as a resource that can be available at school but most suicides are done at home or away from school. In these seminars the parents will learn the red flags to pick up on such as a sudden loss of interest in things they used to enjoy, a change in sleep patterns and how they are doing in school.

Parents will also be aware of how to keep the home area safe from any easy access to things such as guns as states before.
The author tried to convince the parent as well as the experts that being a teenager can’t be an excuse for committing sexting by using the logic strategy, “ But this is something that just cannot be dismissed as kids ‘ doing stupid things.’.”, And he or she was trying to convince the audience that the authorities don’t consider these teens a criminals, but they just want to put an end to this “dangerous new trend” as he or she used the ethos strategy, ”Authorities aren’t convicting children, but using the law as teaching tool and trying to put stop to a toxic new trend.” . The author used a pathos appeal when talking to the oppose experts by mentioning the sad story of Jessie’s subside, “ Bertani must not have heard of the Cincinnati suicide.” ; Also he or she used a logos appeal to convince the experts that this “dangerous new trend” is not a private issue and it is also due to the irresponsibility of the parent to their teens: “ The civil libertarians may wish to consider their position. They claimed it is a private matter best resolved by parental responsibility. Would it follow that their parental irresponsibility should make the parent the legally liable
