If nobody puts a stop to the teenagers that are committing crimes than more and more teenagers are going to start committing crimes. When a teen doesnt get big punishment they believe it's okay to continue doing what they're doing. If you don't correct or point out they are doing something wrong then they will never fix it. Imagine living in a world with not so many teens committing crimes. It will be a better world to live in not only for the teens but also for the smaller kids they will have better role models.
This is when your most mature and know the meaning and value of life. Now, that’s no reason a seventeen year old or fourteen year old should commit a crime due to maturity of the brain, but its logical. Kid or even teenager brains may not have self control and desirable behaviors (“Young Offenders…”). Kids do before they think, which explains why a lot of them apologize after the fact. In reality it’s too late, but to a kid they believe they should be forgave.
Teenagers constantly worry what other people think of them: friends, family, even strangers. They’ve all been there. But what teenagers should really be worrying about is what they think of themselves. Teens should not be pressured to choose between what they want to be based on what others want them to be. Yet, teenagers think that their options are limited, and that’s where they take the wrong turn.
They know at the time of doing the crime that it is wrong and they still go through with they're are doing. If it is a parents problem, then they should have their children taken away from them for not teaching them the right values and not setting a good example. If we start trying our teenagers as adults then in time we will see a decrease in the amount of parents that mistreat their kids. Those parents will have learned that they have to take responsibility, even at a young age for their actions and they will teach their children that. This will cause those teenagers to know what it wrong before they ever have to learn by going to prison.
Introduction: American kids and teenager have always struggled with accepting or respecting themselves. Other people are making those who are struggling to have a hard time with themselves. The entertainment industry has a responsibility to implement diverse characters in their programming for kids and teenagers that don’t perpetuate wrong stereotypes.

Some kids and teenagers don’t really see the outcomes in society because they are mostly influenced by their friends or parents who think very stereotypically of the world.
The life of a Teenager of this society tends to be kept and shown to be over protected by the Olds. Honestly, I’ve notice from people around me who parents are strict while being wily about everything they should not be exploiting. On the other hand, the Teenagers are being safeguarded because the story states “The Olds like to say its because we are children” (Link 674), that statement shows Teenagers somewhat despises hard they are looked down on, but they do not understand that the Olds just care and love hard, when it comes to their children. In addition, the Teenagers are viewed in the society as being irresponsible; They show this with the incidents and recreations everyone be involved in; For example, “Plus, the Olds got mad about one of the chairs […] The unicorn broke the back to kindling”
Adolescence may develop this depressive disorder through learning patterns of negative thinking. Teenagers who are taught to think pessimistically, to give up and rely on others for their own happiness often are more likely to suffer from depression than the outgoing, optimistic teenagers. These patterns of thinking normally generate from their parents. Children who go through their lives with the mindset that when something is a challenge they should give up and not try to overcome an obstacle, often get depressed as they get older and are faced with more
Many have argued that teens should not be tried as adults because of having an immaturity to them and an underdeveloped brain in which influences the rational thinking of a teen. Although these arguments are very reasonable, to say that teens are not aware of their crimes, would only invalidate their statements. Juveniles are aware of their wrongdoings and they choose to commit foul play on innocent lives. These perpetrators had an intent to kill someone, they did so to feel satisfaction or to perhaps seek approval of someone. Furthermore, if teen killers are tried as adults, they should also be given the opportunity of liberation once they turn of age.
1- The three basic statements that the author made about teenagers is that they are individual, misconceived, and narrow minded people. His evidence to these claims is that teenagers are anxious to preserve their individuality and that they are willing to forgo many of the group benefits that the society offers in order to do so.

The main reason for imposing curfews is because a teenager can not establish reasonable curfews unlike responsible parents. Curfews are not insulting teenager’s responsibility but instead, teaches them time management and responsibility. Teenagers are not adults yet and it is a parent’s duty to manage their time for them until they become more reasonable and more responsible. If teenagers were ready to tackle on the whole world and make all of their own rules, they shouldn’t live with their parents. Parents are there to help teenagers and enforcing curfews are one of the reasons.
People’s feelings and mental health play a large role in crime being committed today in Canada. Most crimes done in Canada are involved with the use of guns, drugs, abuse and theft. Also the main reasons crimes are being committed can be because of depression or other mental disorders, family conditions (poor parenting skills) discrimination based on racism, politics and poverty.
