Teenage Curfews Essay, Research Paper

Should our teens have a teen curfew implemented in our neighborhood?

What is there to do so late at night? That?s what many parents ask their children. But

The answer they get out of their kids is usually the biggest lie ever. ?Imposing a curfew to

Keep our teenagers off the streets at night isn?t the answer. Curfews are an impractical

Solution to a serious problem?, says Bob Harkins of the Teenage Review. Today?s kids

Aren?t likely to listen to theses laws anyway. In order for a curfew to work parents would

Have to implement it. Today?s police officers are to busy and the lack the numbers to

Baby-sit our countries children. Plus in order for this to work you would need the parents

Support, and many parents either don?t know about the curfew or just simply don?t care.

But on the other hand many people agree that a curfew would work our neighborhoods

Problems. ?If you chase people off the streets and lock them in their doors, there

Behavior is bound to change?, says Time Magazine.

The one main conflict will be is are the people really going to listen to these rules

If change is applied. Rules are made to be broken is the way many teenagers live today.

Many parents would love this idea but then you have the kids who totally disagree with

the idea and want to be free. This would also cut?s into people?s civil rights as a citizen

of the United States. But no matter what people say it is impossible to please everyone

and kids and parents are going to have different views about the whole thing.

All in all I believe that giving a universal curfew is very foolish. My reasoning

behind this is the fact that having other people parent your children isn?t right. The other

people being the police officers have better thing to worry about like murders and

violence, not making sure little tommy is in bed by twelve oclock. Curfews should be the

responsibility of the parents and what they feel is right for their child. The reasoning for

this is that certain children would ruin it for others. What I mean by this is that parents

know what there child is like and whether he is responsible enough to take care of

himself late at night. That?s were there should be a certain sense of security. In saying

that I mean that if something happens to you, your parents should be the first ones to

know about it, a simple call can make all the difference. Basically the way to a later

curfew is just the simple matter of trust.

After researching this topic I don?t doubt that if extreme measures are taken the

crime will go down. And I don?t doubt that success in one area will lead to efforts in

other areas. I do have doubts though about this country trying to end the constant war

between parents and children with the cops, sirens, fines, and jails. Leave this one up to

the parents and let them take it on the chin if there kid screws up.
