As well, it is safer for the teens that do have sex to know how to do so safely than to just assume that no teen will have premarital sex. Given that so many students will not abstain from sex, “programs have an obligation to help teens understand the risks and responsibilities that come with sexual activity. Survey after survey indicates that adolescents have a tremendous unmet need for information related to sexuality, contraception, STDs, and making sexual decisions” (Government Should Fund Sex Education). Comprehensive sex education will prepare teens in the event that they chose to not stay abstinent. It will teach them how to make good choices and how to weigh the benefits and consequences of their actions, because it is impossible to make an accurate decision without knowing all of
The children (adolescents) have an active role in determining the best way to go about this action of safe sex. The parents give their child the chance to make decisions on their own, which may or may not affect them in the future. Schalet’s finding fit with the interpretive theories of childhood socialization because the U.S. children collectively learn about sex and the culture around them without the insight of their parents being involved. This model is known for children collectively participating in society and also has three dimensions as well: active roles by children, present oriented, and focused on the collective learning experience. An example of this comes from the U.S. parents’ lack of actively informing
Parents should always be able to prepare their teens for the worst no matter how uncomfortable the situation might be. While parents are more worried of keeping their health private, I think teens would like to have those rights too when it comes to something personal like deciding about their sexual life. Medical health Centers should allow young teens to make their own decision when it comes to their personal sexual life and non-threating issues. Allowing young teens to decide for themselves not only creates them to be responsible for their actions but also to boost of confidence when talking to a doctor. Some teens don’t always tell the doctor everything because they know the moment they tell something their parents will know.
Parents should consider the effect it will have on their family if their teen gets pregnant because they could just prevent it all. Most teens are scared to tell their parents that they are sexual active, so making birth control easily accessible to everyone would keep teen pregnancy rates down. Most parents think they can control their kid’s actions until they are eighteen and that´s not the case with sexual activity. Teens should be able to make the choice if they need birth control or not because they are making the choice to have sex. Most parents are not understanding enough for teens to tell them they need birth control.
A teenager should be legally required to first have their parents’ permission before obtaining contraceptives because their parents can offer them guidance and support – and financial help if an accidental disease or pregnancy occurs. Even though giving birth control to a teen is often a responsible decision, it can have negative consequences. For some teens, knowing that they aren 't at as much risk for sexually transmitted diseases and that pregnancy risks are greatly reduced birth control encourages promiscuous behavior. Teens who may have then practiced abstinence, now have a reason to become sexually active. Birth control also poses honest concerns for religious families.
Teachers and administrators often fail to cease discrimination of harassment against LGBT youth because they are afraid of facing prejudice from others or because of their own prejudice (Browman, 2001). If we really want to solve this problem, we are going to have to work together. Three ways we could help LGBT is by educating people in schools, having informational sessions, and creating gay straight alliances. “Educators cannot ignore the risks faced by homosexual students, but deciding how to deal with the issue should be a matter of local concern” (Archer,
One of the negative effects is losing their interest in their hobbies. Teenagers who resort to peer pressure will conform to the opinions of their peers as they value what their peers think of them more. For example, a teenage girl wants to join the math club but is hesitant to do so as she is afraid of what her peers may think of her, a math geek or a nerd. Deciding to give up on her interests, she has given in to peer pressure. From this, the true interests and hobbies of
Some parents would never even talk to their kids about what some of these topics are and it is wrong. Kids not only need to grow up but need the freedom to read to be able to grow and learn. Therefore most kids should have the right to read the books of their choosing and books should not be banned. Children should have the freedom to read whatever books they want. Children should not have their books taken away because another parent doesn’t like the book or it is not suitable for one of their own children.
If they learn that they need to respect the topic with all seriousness, then they will. If we let them goof off, then they will think that it’s okay and that they can make their way through life without being serious. If you are really concerned with their maturity level, then teaching them a year later is an option, but don’t put it off forever. In conclusion, the Holocaust should be taught to middle schoolers because it can teach them not to oppress groups of people, to stick up for what they believe in and stand up to bullying, and it avoids misinformation about the topic. It’s for these many reasons that the Holocaust should be taught to kids so that we don’t make the world a worse
First and most effective way of influence in young people’s behavior is giving a good example. There are cases when parents give their children negative examples by smoking, quarrelling, fighting and even beating each other in front of a child. However, if parents give a good example to their children they may become idols for them and their children will try to behave the same way as their parents to be the same successful, kind and to live prosperous. Adults have more experience, they are wisdom that is why younger people should listen to them and learn on their
