Charter of Rights for Teenagers in 2013
Transcript of Charter of Rights for Teenagers in 2013
Past: Currently there are alternative schools for pregnant teenagers to go to. Pregnant teenagers do not usually go to mainstream public schools such as Bayview Secondary because their body is changing for the baby. This may include frequent bathroom breaks, which can disturb the rest of the class. Why? Teenagers should be allowed to watch rated R movies with out parent presence because they are mature enough for it. Everyday teenagers are already exposed to violence such as violence in video games and violence on TV. Allowing teens to watch a rated R movie will be any different.
Past: Teens are not allowed to attend a R rated movie without being accompanied by an adult. Why? Teens should have the right to not get assignments signed by their parents because they are already mature enough to understand their mistakes. If teenagers can choose if they want their parents to see their marks it will help with independence and maturity.
Past: Currently students under the age of 18 need to get assignments signed by their parent or guardian if requested by teachers. Why? Teenagers should be allowed to get married without the consent of both parents because it is their life and not their parents. When teenagers are dating, they are already mature and understand what is best for them. If teens get married they will be happy and can finally take on adult responsibilities and become a mature person.
Past: Currently in Ontario, a couple can get married between ages 16-18. Under the age of 16, a person needs the consent of the Supreme or County Court. Why? Teens should be allowed to move out without parent and judge consent because it will teach them independence. If a teenager moves out it will tell them to be mature with their life. For example, moving out will force then teenager to find a job so they can pay the bills. Overall this new right will teach teenagers to grow up and become an adult.
Past: Currently the legal age to move out in Ontario is 16. However this can only happen if a judge and parents give permission. Once permission is given, the teen can move out and bring his or her belongings. If the parents do not allow them to bring their belongings, they can bring a police officer to retrieve the belongings. Why? Teens should be allowed to choose their own punishment because they are already mature enough to understand what they did wrong and how they can change it in the future. This usually depends on how much trust the parents have on them. For example if a trust between the child and the parent is strong then it is fair to say that they can choose their own punishment. However if the trust is not strong, then the parents should still choose the punishment.
Past: Currently as long as you are under 18 your parents or guardians are legally allowed to choose how to punish you. Why? Teenagers should be allowed to buy rated M games under age 17 because they are already mature enough to handle the content. Just like the right for teens to watch R rated movies, teens should be allowed to buy M rated games because they are already exposed to violence in the media everyday.
Past: Currently you have to be 17 to buy M rated games.
