Others will hopefully learn from those mistakes and not do it. Why they shouldn’t be tried as adults? Kids who commit crimes are between the ages of 9 or 10. At, that age it is impossible for them to have the mental ability to plan or commit a crime yet alone understand the consequences of that action. An adult who commits a crime is punished for it and will remember it for the rest of their lives.
Not so much so that they are physically or mentally hurt but a small swat on the rump to get their attention is necessary at times. I do not believe that schools should ever lay a hand on my child that should be left for the parents. If there is a major problem that was caused by my child I should be called to the school to handle that problem. “The fact that over 90% of Americans are spanked as children, and most are not violent, abusive, or criminal adults, contradicts an assertion that corporal punishment unilaterally will have negative effects on children” (Oas, 2010). So if a child is spanked and it does not make them a violent person, then why is it so bad for a parent to discipline their child?
Video games are not the source of violence but they are consistently blamed; parents need to make sure that their own children are not exposed to media hype that would be considered as violent or damaging to their own kids. The media truly believes they are the scapegoat for anything that goes wrong with today’s society. Today’s parents are naïve and ignorant to the fact that they do not know how to regulate the things their children watch and they cannot control their own kids behavior so they immediately point the blame on someone else. They need to teach their children good morals and show them how playing with guns can change their lives forever. People who own guns need to keep them put away and out of the reach of children.
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
there is no solid proof that the media causes violence, and although parents do a lot to help and protect their children, there are still some steps that can be taken to protect their children against violent and sexual material. Government intervention not stands for it. Violence starts at home, not on TV or in a computer game. America needs to stand together and fight youth violence and promiscuous sex without taking away the rights of citizens. We all want to help America's youth, but Government intervention (stronger enforcement of existing laws or new legislation) into availability of popular culture media would not help to reduce violence and promiscuous sex among America's
I think teens should not be tried as adults because they have not experienced how does the adult world works long enough to realize what they are doing. They should however be sentenced to work for the community so they can know and analyze what were their crimes consequences. In addition to the lost brain matter all the prosecutors and specially the government is setting severe sentenced to young adults. We should not punish them because reasons are to why we call children kids. We can not call them adults when they are not tried as one.
My life growing up and my parent’s lives growing up are completely different. Since they were already a teenager and know what it's like, they try to enforce me not to make the same mistakes they did so I can learn from them and so I will do a better job than they did. I think that is what most parents want from their kids. To do better then they did. Since parents went through it they know how most things will turn out if you make a certain mistake or decisions.
Furthermore, excluding young offenders from society is denying them the opportunity to meet positive role models and mentors. . With other trouble people is simply perpetrating the problem it is teaching them bad behaviour and excluding them from all of the positives influences they would experience in normal society they need to be able to experience different things and develop positive goals because if they have a sense of purpose they will become better people in the future. Second of all only 14% juvenile offenders are in detention and the rest of juvenile offenders are supervised in the community. So if 86% of the offenders are being supervised why the rest of the 14% can’t also be supervised.
Despite the fact that some people believe child soldiers are replicas or replicate child criminals, child soldiers should be given amnesty because they aren't morally responsible for their actions, they are forced into fighting, and the goal should be to rehabilitate the child soldiers and not to punish. First of all, child soldiers should not be held accountable for their actions during wartime. While it is well known that children make imperfect decisions all the time, there is a scientific reasoning to this phenomena. Studies show that “the section of the brain known as the frontal lobes controls decision making and only fully develops well into your 20's. Children simply lack the ability to think of the long-term consequences of their actions” (Invisible Children).
Their relationships with their family are badly compromised because this disorder causes teens to make no efforts to hide their behaviour, and they are not concerned with the feelings of others. They are most likely to not do well at school and not attend school regularly. What are the causes contributing to Conduct Disorder? This disorder is most commonly found amongst adolescents with troubled past experiences (mainly child abuse) and family issues, which can include parents with drug and/or alcohol addictions and family conflicts. It can also be caused by genetic defects and often arise out of situations of poverty.
