Procon.org says, “Parents have the right to decide what material their children are exposed to and when” (Banned Books- Top 3 Pros and Cons). In schools, children do not have to read a book if their parents do not want them to because it contains things they do not want their children to hear about at that time of their lives. "Literary works containing explicit sex, oral sex, explicit & violent descriptions of rape, masturbation, vulgar and obscene language" were on the approved reading list for grades 7-12, according to Speak up for Standards, a group seeking age-appropriate reading materials for students in Dallas, Texas” (Banned Books - Top 3 Pros and Cons). Before parents approve a book, children are introduced to it during school. However, their parents might not want them to read it, therefore, parents should know what books their children are reading that year before the children get exposed to it.
People should take their kids to watch this movie instead of trick or treating because of the current current clown rampage, to save money, and have a day for family fun. Parents should take their kids to watch “A Madea Halloween” instead of trick or treating because the clown rampage has been very dangerous over the last six months, and this really put their kids at risk. The clown rampage put parents, and their kids at risk because of the possibility that their child may getting kidnapped. Therefore if parents wanna take their kids out to have fun in a safe environment, they should go watch this movie because it would be funny and scary all in a safe environment. If parents take their kids to watch this movie they can save money by not having to purchase a costume.
In some schools, however, it is left up to the teachers to decide the rules. Most schools seem to think it is a bad habit to let students chew gum as some students can be irresponsible with gum. However, in middle school I think we should look at the rules closer. I would ask for schools to implement the permission to chew gum and install gum dispensers in cafeterias and commons for students. Studies show that
According to the record on BBC news, in 2014, Tamir, a white police officer shot and killed a 12-year-old black boy in Cleveland while he was playing with a pellet gun outside a recreation, in 2016, a Ohio police officer killed a 13-year-old teenager who drew a BB gun. Kimberly said that “We looked at the FBI database, since that was the official government accounting for things. And saw that over the past decade, the average number of shootings that they counted was 400. By the end of last year, we had almost 1,000 fatal shootings that we had captured.” Those two boys were innocent, but for the safety of the society and the country, the police shot them and caused the loss of two young life, because the situation is emergency, so that the police do not have the time to find out the truth, but just shoot them, however, if the government change the gun law, no one can carry the gun in public area, then this incident might not happened. From another aspect, sometimes citizens could get hurt because the guns sometimes may discharge accidentally, in the 2016, a school in America has a new course about the guns, during the class, a student’s gun discharge unexpected, and caused the death of himself, and a 3-year-old boy was playing with an 1-year-old boy by holding a gun, however, the gun fired and killed the younger one.
However, plenty of parents feel [look at article to see the support of book banning] that certain ideas should not be taught to their children, especially when the ideas conflict with their personal beliefs and interests. Plenty of parents have succeeded in removing these subjectively distasteful books from their children’s school’s shelves and reading lists but concerns about what book banning actually does to the students who aren’t allowed to read them have arisen. Paul Ringer, author of “How Banning Books Marginalizes Children," states that, “When we say, ‘This book is inappropriate,’ we’re telling those children ‘your situation … your family … your life is inappropriate.” Banning books sends the wrong message to those who share experiences with the topic of the book and shelters the themes from students who may need them. While parental concerns and opinions about
In Cold Blood: Educational or Inappropriate? When brainstorming inappropriate subjects to discuss with children at school, topics such as murder, violence, inappropriate language, or affairs may come to mind. The question is raised that if it benefits the child to converse about these matters, should books about adult themes, like murder be allowed in schools? Many novels, including In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, arguably should be banned, because it contains gruesome details about real life murders. Parents are mostly concerned about letting their children reading this book, while the majority of teachers approve it.
Whether it be regarding public security or for electronic cigarettes to help smokers quit, many parents and children are in a diving stage because of the change it brings upon people. Now some of the things brought upon this change can be bad such as the missuse of the electronic cigaretts by teeneagers thinking it is a “safe route to smoking” when really the device is made to help people quit, not start. Change in general of the technology has worried the parents but has been embraced by the children. Something 's now have trackers in them where parents feel the government is tracking them but really it could possibly later in the future save someone or a school from a mass shooting by tracing that suspicious person. It can be interpreted each way and the die may roll however it wants, but in the end, there is more benefit to the youth culture of the 2000’s than there is danger to the parents of their
Barbara Kingsolver is about how the society creates violence by exposing children to threatening events were the good guy will always win. In most movies, children watch a villain and a superhero who are fighting until one kills the other one with a weapon. She is explaining we could change the aspects that children have about protecting themselves by watching how they interact with others. If they act in the way of threatening, we would need to see why the child feels he/she feels unprotected whether it's from the parents or how society treats the kid has an outsider. Kingsolver point of writing the article about Columbine is to open our eyes to see how we treat others in different ways because someone may dress, act, look, etc differently than the rest of the community.
Many student leaders have risen from this tragic event such as emma gonzalez in the movemoent towards gun reform. Sadly enough, only after this tragic event occured did people stand up and deal with the problem of gun violence.The AR-15 and similar assault style rifles should be banned from the public and mental health evalluations should rregulaly be implemented. Many political leaders arise and argue that people such as emma gonazalez should not be able to propse or argue for gun laws with little knowledge of the system and openly because of their young age, but as Noah Trevor put it, If kids are old enough to be shot they’re old enough to have an opinion about being shot. Gun violence is growing and without these regulations and differences put aside so will the
The shootings that have happened in schools throughout America over the past few months has divided Americans on what they need to do as a nation to stop additional shootings from occouring. Many believe that creating new laws on buying weapons by requiring background checks, holding adults liable for the actions of their kids and requiring safety devices on weapons to stop youngsters will stop these massacres in schools from happening, it 's a step in the right direction, however, it 's not good enough nor is it effective enough, America needs well regulated gun laws and the politicians must understand that the laws should be based on facts, not opinions. There are several problems that need to be looked at in order to determine which laws are necessary. According to a recent study, America has the highest amount gun related deaths every year in the world. “Germany, has 371 gun related deaths, France 255, Canada 165, the united kingdom 68, Australia 65, Japan 39 and America, 11,200”.
Dodge the Ban of Dodge Ball Dododododododo nooooooooooo bing ¨right to the face¨ whistle! YOUR OUT! This game is Dodgeball you all know what that is. but get this recently New Hampshire at Elkton, Maryland principals are banning it from schools by taking it out of the curriculum. They say it is dangerous and against what they teach.
They’re not going to go out into the real world half naked and relying on a conch to speak, setting fire to cars and making a trophy out of a pigs head. This book is so much more than what is on the surface, and if any of you bothered to pay attention in your own English classes, maybe you would’ve learned that. This kind of ‘protection’ you seem to think that you are providing is what gets your kids in trouble. Kind of like when our schools decided – after one of our BRILLIANT PTA ideas – that we should teach abstinence-only when it came to sex education. And our pregnancy rate spiked.
In fact, this event is what generally started the debate on whether or not video games made children violent. Plenty were quick to actually try to ban the game-- which pattern has continued with many different games, such as Postal, Manhunt, and Hatred most recently-- but these calls to ban the game never we acted upon. What did happen, however, was a change in the rating system of games. Back in the 90s, there was not a rating system in place for games, so anyone could get their hands on a copy of Doom; many children did, in fact. Due to the backlash of the ‘games make kids violent’, a rating system (ranging from E for everyone to M for mature) was put into place.
Parents Vs. Internet In the article “ The Undercover Parent,” Coben talks about how parents should monitor their kids. He goes on about the benefits and disadvantages of using spyware by using anecdotes and counterclaims. Coben seems to argue that parents should definitely monitor their kids but he never seems to agree with parents using spyware on an everyday basis. He believes that parents should only use spyware to listen for any dangerous chatter and to be “a safety net,” as Coben says. The author also, as I said, mentions some counterclaims in his article.
Usually the main culprits of a banned book are religious parents who see this book as defying their beliefs, offensive, or are only suitable to a select age group. Many of these books are biographies, beloved children’s books and even some of these books have been and still are promoted and used in schools. One of these banned books is very popular in school although it’s an edited version rather than the original. The Dairy of Ann Frank, a parent in Michigan pushed this book to be banned due to the fact of the young girl questioning her anatomy, saying it’s pornographic and shouldn’t be suitable to young middle schoolers. One of the three most intriguing books that are widely known to be used in many primary and secondary
