Teaching kids to respect and manage time is a central component to a good education. Therefore, a curfew, though a 'must' for reasons of discipline, is also essential because it teaches the child the importance of a responsible schedule. Therefore I believe that it is necessary for the government to impose a 6pm curfew for teenagers because it will help with safety, responsibility and social courtesy. Firstly, safety, Parents should know it’s their responsibility to keep their children safe at all times , going home late at nights can be very dangerous. Often, it is not the behaviour of the teenager that is of concern to a parent, but the behaviour of other people and how it will affect them.
You try your cell phone, but it is dead. Now you think, are curfews really necessary? They are supposed to keep you out of trouble, but you are not a troublesome kid. The truth is, they don’t keep teenagers out of trouble, and here are a few reasons why. The first reason is a simple rule of adolescence: teenagers often like to rebel against authority figures, especially parents.
Not only are parents stricter, but the actual society as well. Politicians and municipalities “crafted anti-loitering laws and curfews to keep young people from congregating alone” (“The parent Trap”, Clive Thompson). I agree that restricting teens from doing whatever they want whenever they want is a very good way to protect them. Unfortunately it has a huge influence on their behavior. For
There might not be a cover all solution for the gang epidemic that is occurring all over the United Sates today. But thanks to intervention programs like GREAT we can educate our youths about the danger they face with getting affiliated with gangs. Getting them to realize that these gang members is not family and this is not just them having fun for now but a decision that can affect them negatively for the rest of their
We all know that kids go around our back to parties and have a few drinks with friends but not many parents will stop this. This is not good, this is what is encouraging them to be worse later on. Firstly they are testing there boundaries, which if there are none, will make them believe they can do anything and get away with it, these habits would carry on into their later years when it comes to driving and they will become reckless because they believe that they can get away with anything. Secondly we shouldn’t be encouraging underage drinking because it will inflict an addiction onto our children that is close to impossible to shake off, if the kids are getting drunk every weekend at the age of 15 or 16 imagine what would happen to those same kids at 19 or 20? Melbourne's Murdoch Children's Research institute has done a study where 1520 teenagers drinking habits have been tracked for 10 years.
These two causes may also lad to the rise of the problem. To begin with, I totally agree that lack of education may lead to alcohol abuse. In Mindy Sink’s article, she mentions that kids are away from home for the first time and not taught to drink responsibly. Parents and schools play an important role in educating their children and students. Since teenagers are immature to make their own decision, it is vital for adults to inculcate a correct attitude towards drinking.
To drive after dark, one must know how to handle dangerous situations, knowledge only gained through experience, which young drivers do not have. Having a curfew for young drivers also teaches them responsibility. If they realize that the curfew has been set for their own safety, they may transfer that understanding to other frustrations in their lives. Understanding for a teen is important; it can keep them safe and prevent them from making dumb, life-threatening decisions. Responsibility however, is not the only thing that should be encouraged to young drivers.
More watchful parents and closely monitoring a child's friends will lessen or eliminate the ease of accessibility to not only marijuana, but other drugs as well. As a society, we have failed our youth in many areas of life. Youth need positive role models that are concerned about protecting them from harm and leading them in the right direction to go on a lead productive, drug-free lives despite any changes made to the laws. Being that age restrictions are put on everything else, there should be legal age restrictions for people who can legally purchase marijuana. People who can legally purchase marijuana should not be allowed to be around anyone under the age of 21 while the are under the influence or have marijuana in their possession.
Teens can be often tricky by telling the parents that they can trust them and they can be responsible in the result of getting their privacy. [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.
The high likelihood of detection by the police, and the deterrent effects of punishment have been seen as forms of crime prevention. But the traditional criminal justice agencies have prevention as a sort of side effect or unintended consequence of their main aim of detection and punishment. And they are, as we have seen in previous lectures, not that efficient. Specific measures aimed at preventing crime have always been around in an everyday sense. Families, schools and communities disapprove of crime and this acts as a form of 'informal social control' People lock their doors and windows against burglars, and perhaps avoid badly lit areas, or certain parts of town, with the intention of reducing the likelihood of victimisation.
