This shows that this the issue of the age to the electoral majority is of significance and should be discussed. The age of electoral majority should be lowered to sixteen because voting is a fundamental human right for a democratic society, and future belong to the young generation, they should take part in making any decision that may cause a change in their life. If teenagers are allowed to vote, they will care more and know more about politics, which may eventually benefit the whole society by improving the quality of life of every person living in that
They are too young! Sixteen year olds should not be able to vote solely because they consider themselves to be mature and have political views. To start with, sixteen year olds are starting to finally identify with who they are, and what they like. They are still maturing. Some sixteen year olds are maturing at a faster rate than others, but that does not make them any different from other teens their age.
This ties to the tipping point because, “For younger kids, repetition is really valuable. They demand it. When they see a show over and over again, they not only are understanding it better, which is a form of power, but just by predicting what is going to happen, I think they feel a real sense of affirmation and self-worth.” (Gladwell 132). This shows that the gun law movement will not stick because people are going to stop adressing this and eventually this trend
In almost all of the past elections, about half of the voting age population did not actually vote in the elections(mashables.com). We can say this by looking at the 2012 elections in which there were “241 million people of voting age, but only 130.2 million actually cast ballots in the general election — a turnout rate of just 58.6 percent” claims Brad Plumer from Vox.com. If the voting percentage stays this way, it can make it hard to run even a decent democracy. To solve this problem, we can teach 16 year olds to hold an interest in voting which would also influence their parents or other family members who do not vote to at least hold an interest in politics and possibly start voting. This movement would result in a “trickle up” effect, and affect voting rates on the long run (fairvote.org).
The legal drinking age should not be lowered to eighteen because it will give high school and even middle school students greater access to alcohol, interfere with brain development, adult rights begin at twenty-one, and increase traffic accidents among the youth. Lowering
According to Kentucky Department for Public Health, teens whose parents are more involved with them and know what they do in their free time are more likely to have higher self-confidence, better academic standing and veer away from negative behavior. Positive parental involvement takes time, patience and the skills because it means being available and catering to the child whenever they are in need of attention but it will surely pay off in the future. One great step to becoming involved with the child is to have family dinners which give both parent and child room for conversation in a familiar environment (Drinkworth, Positive & Negative Influences of Parents on their Children). One father stated his goal in parenting this
Some say the corporate influence on kids isn’t healthy for them, because the influence it could have on them, and others say it is appropriate for their kids to see these sponsorships in the real world, at a young age. There is nothing faulty with corporate sponsoring within society, but in a school place it shouldn’t be permitted. Corporate Partnerships help raise money for the schools, and acquires them donations, which is why the school loves them. For example, A corporate business could sponsor a sports team and purchase all new uniforms, raising the positive influence on children. receiving new uniforms could help the school so they can spend that money they would spend on the uniforms, on something more educational.
Textual Evidence #1: ____My first piece of textual evidence is on Document D and that said ¨teens have been socialized to value education and career success¨. With that said these teens are more likely to do better off in life so they can support their own children when they get older. Reasoning (explain what the above textual evidence means & how it supports your claim) ___The reason that I used this Document was because It explains how single teens will do better off in life because their parents are not focusing on one child more than the
Teens agree; one opined that learning to drive was a “growing-up experience” (Source G). Learning how to drive teaches teens responsibility, and after crashes inevitably happen, it teaches them that there are consequences to their actions. Personally, not having my own car makes me feel dependent on my parents and tied to their household; teenagers want to experiment with their own tastes and desires without the controlling influence of their parents, and driving an automobile gives them the freedom and independence to do that. Raising the driving age would take away that
Since higher populated states have more electoral votes, many believe that the lower populated areas will be neglected. According to Robert Speel, a political author from Time magazine, Presidential candidates will still focus on the states where they can get the most electoral votes, which are the higher populated states. Robert Speel earned his Ph.D in political science from Cornell University and Bachelors from The University of Pennsylvania. In fact, Penn State University published his book, Changing Patterns of Voting in the Northern United States. Speel believes that presidential candidates typically campaign in at most 12 states based on the amount of electoral votes from those states.
