First, by allowing their kid to drink at home gives kids a reason not to drink and drive. I know that if a kid was able to drink at home they would not want to sneak around and leave. Also, kids could not be careless because they would be at home with their parents. I believe that this would make kids safer because they would be home and have their parents to look after them and keep them out of trouble. If parents are able to control were and who their children were drinking with I think this would be a major benefit to our society.
I think school should not start early and stay the way it is because, as soon as I get out of school, I need to go straight home and finish my homework while helping my little sister with hers. Since my dad and stepmom go to work all afternoon, I stay home and watch my little sister, while helping around the house and helping her do her homework. Proponents of later start times, who have received considerable media attention in recent years, argue that many students who have to wake up early for school do not get enough sleep and that beginning the school day at a later time would boost their achievement . A number of
Sacrifice was something that I had to learn to tolerate when returning to school. Spending time with my family became less of a benefit that I once enjoyed and that many take for granted. Sleep deprivation and personal time was also something that returning to school had an impact on. Study habits are difficult to maintain and focus, due to my children wanting my attention non-stop. My parents support in this process has been a blessing as they’ve taken much of the burden therefore providing peaceful nights and lessening some of the stormy days.
Matt Breslow 5/1/12 English 12 Carnright Teen Curfews Research Paper If your son/daughter was out past 9 p.m., would you feel safe? Many people have said no to this question with all the crime in the streets as of now. With the 2,800 juveniles that were arrested for homicide in 1994 (Teen Curfews), many people wouldn’t want their kids to be in that statistic. Because of this high number of arrested teens, they began to have curfews that made kids stay inside their homes after a set time. These curfews were made to enforce the law and try to lower the teen crime rate.
It should not be the school’s responsibility to teach values and morals but, to support and uphold these basic beliefs. Parents should be aware and educating their students about what is proper and improper to bring to school. Schools with routine locker searches, where students are being caught help reinforce positive behavior within the student body. This fosters a positive atmosphere for everyone. I would like to believe that schools provide safe environments for our children to learn and grow.
He voices his opinion on how high school was, how high school is now, and how it could make or break your next four years from all the upsets, hardships and bullying. Fifty years ago, things were way different than how they are today. Kids had to go to school and were respectful to their peers or they would get in a huge amount of trouble, kids were expected to help their parents around the house or does some yard work outside. Nowadays kids do nothing and expect so much in return. If they do not get what they want when they want it, usually they will pitch a fit or they will not speak to their parents and the end result of that situation is the kid ends up getting it.
If you really want to stop kids from getting into gangs, the parents just have to support their children and spend time with them to see how they’re doing. If children know they have someone who is going to support them and who cares for them, they may not have to go to the streets and rely on them to survive just to live another day. Like the saying “Every man has good woman behind them” if every kid had good family supporting them everyone’s lives would be much easier. As adults we should understand as we get older there are more responsibilities and things for us to do, but that doesn’t mean that parents don’t support us any more because we’re kids and we are still learning to become adults. (McHugh pg 166) Until we get to the age of not being treated like a child, we won’t need their guidance to make sure that we stay on the right path and are being the best people we can be.
Drinking Age The fashion of the world is changing, and in the same way the people of the world are also changing. The changing fashion has affected many children. Now-a-days children start to drink from the age of 14 or may be less than that. There is always an issue about the age of drinking, as nobody follows the rules of drinking age. When the children go to the high school, they meet with different other children and make their friend circle.
Juveniles are treated with more care than an adult because of their fragile state during childhood (Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, 2011). Also, minors are usually left home with their parents to supervise them instead of putting them into facilities to help rehabilitate them (Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention Act, 2011). Adults typically don’t get put into their parents care; they are placed into a facility that best suits their crime. I personally feel that these methods used for crime control are best for juveniles and adults. A minor needs more one on one based care due to the fact they are more influential during this stage in their life.
If the kids are allowed to be outside during the night by themselves, without any adult supervision, they will be under great danger. The curfew will also protect the teens and kids by keeping them out of gangs and reducing gang activity, therefore also making the neighborhoods safer. By keeping the kids at home they will be safe from the danger of the streets at night. If kids are outside during the night, not only will they be in physical danger, but also in academic danger. Kids that are out at night will be wasting precious time that could be used for more productive things.
