There are both pros and cons to banning book in school. According to ProCon.org, “Parents have the right to decide what material their children are exposed to and when.” Parents have the right to ban books so they can protect their children from violent content. Children need to be protect from content that could scar them. ProCon.org also states that “Children should not be exposed to sex, violence, drug use, or other inappropriate topics in school or public libraries.” Children should not learn about such things until they are old enough. Kids can be influenced by the things that they are taught at a young age.
As the initiative is run through the school the child goes to, the staff of Healthy Harold do not care for any of the above factors as long as the students learn the correct information that is supplied on the syllabus. If the child does not speak English, the school will contact the Healthy Harold educators to warn them of the issue, they will then send somebody who can speak that language or if that translator is unavailable, they will send over a teachers resource that the teacher can read and help explain it to the child. Individual - Individual factors include a person 's genetic makeup, skills and knowledge. Health behaviours are modifiable actions that can affect health positively or negatively.

According to the article “The First Amendment: Censorship,” speech is routinely censored due to bias, or personal issues with the content (First Amendment, 3). Also, in the article “Censorship Goes to School,” Nancy Day discusses how advocates for removing “hurtful and dangerous” books believe that they are protecting children, and that is more important than access to free speech (Day, 4). Because integrity in education is important, teachers should stay within the bounds and follow the requirements of education (First Amendment, 2). Author Zibby O’Neal said “We try to teach young people the first amendment rights, but then deny them a book” about repeated efforts to ban The Chocolate War (Day, 3). You would think the people who educate would be open minded, they are actually the most critical (Censorship, 2).
Digital Parenting “It is the uninvolved parent who has to resort to strictness.” -Andrea Bocelli. In this digital age, parents, instead of installing invasive software to monitor their children’s online activity, should develop open and trusting relationships with their children, as this is the best way to guard their kids against potential dangers and respect their kids privacy. In his article “The Undercover Parent,” Harlan Coben from The New York Times, claims that children are most vulnerable online and parents should install spyware on their child’s computer in order to protect their child. Using anecdotes from fellow parents and other cases of online threats, he supports his argument by stating that watching their kid’s online behavior is no different than watching them at the park (generally seen as responsible and necessary parenting); therefore, it is the moral obligation of all parents to protect their kids from online predators and bullies, even if outsiders would say that using spyware is
Salinger expertly uses diction to demonstrate the innocence the main character wants to preserve in his life and in other children's lives. As Steinle states, “Holden himself acts as a censor, attempting to erase the “fuck you” he finds written on his sister's school building,” this demonstrates that Holden wants to keep the mind of his younger sister and other children’s minds ignorant to societies vulgar language which
Religious organizations offer free counseling events and other activities in which families can enjoy themselves at no cost. We as people have to be proactive in our communities and within our families to educate our peers on child abuse and channeling aggression in the presence of a child. The weaknesses of these programs people are not taking advantage of them. In my opinion, neighborhoods that teach children, not to tattletale seem to be the most affected; they feel that what goes on inside their home stays behind closed doors despite the severity; thus, children that are abused sexually, physically or emotionally take it to their grave like Angela. This video is related to the text because it illustrates family problems and dysfunctional, the lack of attention the mother pays to the child and fails to provide the basic necessities of life.
The main current legislation, guidelines, policies and procedure within UK Home Nation that affect the safeguarding of children and young people are the following: Children Act (1989) and (2004) The Children Act 1989 was created to create rules that childcare for working parents. It mainly promotes and protects the rights, health, and wellbeing of the children. The Children Act 2004 was later created when it was realised that the rules and services that had been set to protect the children were not enough. This act allows children to be given the extra protection that was proven to be necessary, such as the government being able to keep an electronic profile of all children in the UK that includes important details such as their name, address,
Be that as it may, there are multiple reasons why books should be taught and included in a curriculum. If you really want a book not to be read by an adolescent, banning the book will often have an opposite effect. Although it contains sensitive topics and harsh language, The Secret Life of Bees should not be banned in high schools because students are not only mature enough to handle these issues but should, in fact, be exposed to them in an educational environment to help in the development of their maturing minds. Being exposed to course language at too early an age can often have negative effects on adolescent development. Profanity is inappropriate in a school setting so why should students be assigned to read a book that contains it?
Though I believe that books contain important topics that can spark discussions of values in classrooms, I agree with Prose that teachers shouldn’t use books as a way to explicitly teach students outside values. I believe that in doing this, teachers are distracting students from the writing’s content and structure. Teachers should teach literature for what it is, not for what values they can loosely connect to it. When I was a freshman in high school, we read The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger. The book centered around a mentally unstable, socially isolated teen named Holden Caulfield.
