Jade Mimoso 9/10/15 Argumentative Essay 1 Do you think that Juvenile Justice Centers are beneficial for troubled teens? Well, they actually aren’t beneficial at all. I don’t think that they are beneficial because, some centers don’t help the troubled teens get on track, the center doesn’t have the same educational standards as regular schooling, and most of the kids that get out are still troubled. Let me explain why. For Starters, the Juvenile Justice center doesn’t help some of the troubled teens.
Does it mean random acts of kindness ? Or maybe a day where no one is being picked on or teased? These would both be the perfect examples of pink shirt day, however not all kids know the true mean, yes they have all heard the backstory, but they do not know the true meaning. Some kids do not realise those who do not come to class, not because they are sick, however because they cannot bring it upon themselves to go somewhere where they are named called, teased or pushed around. “Bully Proof Classroom: Confidential” shows those kids stories who could not come to class and because of that, they either failed a grade or their marks were not very high.
Which leads to parents pressuring doctors to ‘fix’ their child (Perlman 1). The children being medicated are the youngest ones in their class, but they are just expected to act older than they are (Weber 2). Society has tricked people into thinking there is only one way a child should act. It is true that some children need medicine, but four out of five do not need to be (Richard 4). Hence, that medicating children is not the best choice there are other options like changing diets and have behavioral therapy (Sanford 1).
Many children do not know what they just did at that time from the numerous accounts of brainwashing and threats. A child 's brain has not fully developed which makes them emotionally and mentally immature. This vulnerability make them an easy target and easier to influence. Children also have less knowledge of war. Since these children are young, they don’t have a sense of danger and are more willing to be sent out on dangerous missions.
Morality is not genetic and as a child grows, they will begin to understand what is right and wrong by the reaction of adults around them. Infants are egocentric and their sense of right and wrong develops from their own feelings and needs. Toddlers still don’t
Some argue that the Foster Care system is ineffective and causes more harm than good. Children are traumatized from being moved home to home and never feel a sense of belonging. Being in the system can cause emotional, social, and life skill problems that can affect a child future. Many studies have shown that kids who are in Foster Care develop emotional, social and life skill problems that will affect them long-term, that will cause problems in their future as an adult. Some may often not be able to learn the basic life skills that will help them as a functional citizen in society.
Gender stereotypes negatively impact a child’s development. By closing the door on kids playing with a variety of toys, we deny them the opportunity to develop a wide variety of skills (“Toys”). During the Imprint Period (0-7 years), gender stereotypes in toys affects kids development. From ages zero to seven, kids soak up everything around them “like a sponge” (“Teenager”). During the Imprint period, the "neural network for how to do things in life is being laid down," and kids develop life skills.
Additionally, children with ADHD exhibit learning styles that differ from one another. A study on third through sixth graders predicted that there would be no common learning styles within the group. Instead, they found three major types of learning styles. First, “Large clusters of these children--but not all--required low rather than bright light when concentrating on academic tasks.” Second, “A majority of the children lacked persistence.” Third, “The children were not able to function well academically in the morning.” More young students wanted to learn in bright light and activities in the morning rather than later in the day. Older children needed more structure and would rather work in the
People with Autism always avoid eye contact and want to be by themselves.They also have different reactions of how things look or feel. In the first years of life autistic children reach different turning points ,such as crawling ,like the average child but others are delayed. Majority of kids perform like normal kids until the age of 1 and a half to 3 years of age, then there symptoms begin to start. During childhood kids with Autism may fall behind their age group. Sometimes autistic kids bite their hands and bang their head .
They also believe that children and teenagers may not handle learning about mental health the correct way. Those who argue against teaching about mental health in schools argue that “[educators] are causing widespread confusion among the majority when we engage [children] in discourse about mental health” and that they “might be encouraged to pathologize their emotions” after watching a video. (Gill n.p.). The author of the article is claiming that only a minority of people are affected by mental illness. She is also arguing that children might think of their emotions as “wrong” even though they are not, suggesting that they cannot handle learning about mental illnesses.
