Although many people are against that, others have felt it was right even necessary. Yes teens make mistakes and do unnecessary things, but treating them as adult’s isn’t the right thing to do. Juveniles shouldn’t be punished as adults, because they’re still maturing and still have the mind of a child. Teenagers often don’t have the mind of an adult, so why try them as one? In Adam Liptak’s article “ Locked Away Forever” published in The New York Times he tells us of the case of Joe Sullivan, who was charged with sexually
Teen-Parent Communication About Sex When young people feel unconnected at home, family, and school, they may become involved in activities that put their health at risk. However, when parents affirm the values of their children, young people often develop positive, healthy attitudes about themselves, therefore delaying in sexual activity. The writer’s purpose(s) for writing these articles is because risky teen behavior is on the rise, and what are parents and families doing/not doing to promote safe behavior? I chose these articles because I am a teen parent, and I feel that if I had been able to have “the talk” sooner, more in depth, and more often, that it may have prevented my pregnancy.

-He reveals how his freinds explained to him what spyware is and how it is used, and at first he was against the idea of intruding the privacy of children until he had some rational thought and fair research of this valuble tool for parents monitoring. 2.Does the author seem knowledgeable about relationships between parents and their teen(s)? -I would say yes, due to the authors amount of research and his personal experiances from his close friends and their relationships with their teen(s). Although he does not mention any experiances with himself and a child of his own, I would still deem him knowledgable of the relationships between parents and their teen(s). 3.What does the line "I want to know what's being said in email and instant messages and in chat rooms" reveal about the writer's backround?
Alexander Russell Advanced Comp. October 4, 2011 “Showbiz Encourages Looser Teen Sex Habits” “Show Biz Encourages Looser Teen Sex Habits,” is written by Sheryl McCarthy. It is an essay in which Sheryl raises various issues that have either led to or correlated with teens in today’s society exhibiting sexual habits that are not conducive to developing lasting relationships, or for being physically and emotionally healthy. With an inductive approach, McCarthy attempts to draw conclusions regarding today’s teens, however these claims can be discredited due to disconnect and inadequacy in her logic. The use of fallacies which include, hasty generalizations, ad hominem, and appeal to tradition are the tools employed in this essay which deteriorate the fabric of truth that the reader may cling to.

[Citation needed] Once that privilege is given, the child you knew before is not the same and once the privilege of privacy is given, it’s hard to take back because they’veRef?already lost control of their kids. [Citation needed] Teens should not have the right to privacy because of the danger of internet, drugs, alcohol, and also teenage pregnancy. To start with, the internet can play a dangerous role in teens’ lives. When a teen is given too much privacy, they tend to make plenty of mistakes involving the internet.
We have to act fast and get these laws in place so that our children will not ruin their lives becoming sex offenders. Parents need to educate, and discuss sexting with their children and pay attention to what is going on. Parents need to pay attention to what their children are doing on their cell phones. While the internet has parental controls on which websites the children may go to, cell phones do not have that ability. Do not feel like it is an invasion of privacy to look at your kid’s text messages.

She argues that when teens start to become sexually curious, the programming on television showing sexual content influences their idea about sex, specifically in regard to gender stereotype. The amount of sexual content on television is huge.
Should sex education be taught in schools? There have been many debates over this. Studies show parents say that sex education only destroys the morality of people because they think that sex education teaches students about how sexual intercourse is done. Although sex education lowers the morality of people by teaching students how to use condoms and contraceptives, it should be taught in primary school and secondary school because its a prevents sexual diseases and teenage pregnancy, it is indeed a need in case of parents’ absence, and it gives children the idea of what is right and what is wrong. Research shows that teens are more sexually active now than before.
Practicing abstinence may be the most utterly method for minimizing this rate, but it’s an irrational method. It would not educate them on the life changing risks correlated with sexual intercourse. Providing a clear and precise curriculum in sex education focussed on career goals, sexually transmitted diseases, healthy relationships, the results of being a young parent, and facts on contraceptives would be most beneficial. Educating minors on how sexual activity at a young age can drastically change their lives would greatly impact the reduction of teen pregnancy. Teen pregnancy proceeds as a major issue with more than half of all teenagers in the United States stating that they had participated in sexual intercourse at least one point before high school ended.
