It catches the reader’s attention and makes them interested in your topic. Through the examination of the quotation “You need to be your teens’ frontal lobes until their brains are fully wired” (J), we can conclude that parents aren’t literally going to be acting as their teen’s frontal lobes, but this is more effective than just saying “You need to make decisions for your teens.” This hyperbole helps Kolbert to communicate her message to the readers by over exaggerating her point. This will cause the potential reader to seriously doubt the mental capability of teenagers. Using an hyperbole will create more concern for readers who are parents and would be more likely to play an active parenting role.

Student government has played a large role in higher education since the 1700s when it was first established in America (May, 2010, p. 207).

When he claims this, however, he provides evidence, both anecdotal and statistical, and does it in a way to doesn 't come across as condescending or disapproving, unlike the majority of older adults commenting on the peculiarities of the Millennial generation.

He posits that the desire exhibited by many members of my own generation, a desire I myself relate to,

Throughout the article Chernoff analyzes alternative definitions for adulthood, ones centered around the mentality of the individual. Chernoff declares that adulthood is “based strictly on emotional maturity”(Chernoff). Chernoff then goes on to explain how an adult must satisfy various standards such as “accepting negative feedback as a tool for self improvement”, and even, “being able to distinguish between ‘needs’ and ‘wants’”(Chernoff). Although Chernoff has gotten closer to the true meaning of adulthood, even her list proves difficult for most who consider themselves ‘adults’ to check off.
