Are teenagers rebellious?
Debate Rounds (3)
Thanks. My opponent has defined teenagers. However, I'll give the definition of "rebellious".
Rebellious: showing a desire to resist authority, control, or convention. [https://www.google.com...]
I won't get into my arguments in this round. I'll let my opponent go first, and argue that teenagers aren't rebellious.
Over to Con.
I'll just say that teenagers may very well be facing difficult times in their lives, but they often resist authority of parents and law. We call a person a "good" person if they do good things, and we call a person a "bad" person if they do bad things. So if a person does rebellious things, we ought to call them a rebellious person.
Factor 1: Strict parenting
A high level of intensity in restriction may forces a kid to reject everything.
Factor 2: Fear
They are scared of being badly beaten up by their parents. Thus, they do what you have instructed them. It is almost same as bullying.
Factor 3:Harsh discipline
When the moment, you are asked by someone to do things that you don't like much. You may end up in hating it.
What my opponent says is true but irrellevant. A teenager may be rebellious because of certain factors, but that doesn't mean he's not acting rebellious.
A bad person may be a bad person because they had a traumatic upbringing, but through their actions they are still "bad" people.
A good person may be a good person because they were taught to love everyone from childhood, but this doesn't mean they're not "good" people.
So simply because there are two sides of the story, this doesn't mean that teenagers don't act in a rebellious manner.
Let me put it this way. I act in X manner, because of A B and C. However, I still act in X manner, regardless of whether or not A or B or C caused it.
As such I urge you to vote Pro.
