Transcript of Charter of Rights for Teenagers in 2013

Charter of Rights for Teenagers in 2013 Right #1: Right to have free dental and vision care for anyone under 18 Right #2: Right to vote at age 16 Right #4: Right for pregnant teenagers to go to public school Right #5: Right for teenagers to watch "R" rated movies without parent permission Right #6: Right for teenagers to have a choice in whether or not their parents sign assignments for school Right #7: Right to get married without the consent of both parents Right #8: Right for teenagers to move out without parent and judge consent Right #9: Right for teens to choose their own punishment Why?: Having proper dental & vision care is important for child development. having nice teeth can help a teen with self esteem, and having good vision can help a teen with education. Past: The Ontario Health Insurance does not cover 100% of dental and vision care. The government only covers dental care if it is done at a hospital. As well, eye care is only covered once a year for people under 20 and over 65. After this it is not covered. Right #3: Right to decide what is best for themselves Right #10: Right for teenagers to purchase rated M games under age 17 Why? Teens should have the right to vote at age 16 because it will teach them about democracy and help them become a better person. Many politicians do not realize the importance of the youth population. Allowing teens to vote can improve the lives of the youth population since their vote will effect how the country will run. Also, the only way for democracy to work is if all citizens have the right to vote. Past: currently the voting age in Canada is 18. In 1970, the voting age was lowered from age 21 to age 18. Why? If teenagers have the right to decide what is best for themselves it will promote independence and self esteem. If parents allow their children to decide what is best for themselves it can help form a better relationship inside the family. This new right will also help teenagers grow up and mature faster. Past: prior to this law children under the age of 18 were considered minors and had to be under parent or guardian control. The parent or guardians of the teen controlled many rights and privileges prior to this right. Why? Pregnant teenagers should be allowed to attend public school because it will help them become more normal in the eyes of society. This right will also help the pregnant teen gain self-confidence and improve self-esteem. Also they will have a normal education growing up.

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.
