I'm taking the stance for the con side. The argument is on; Should Our Parents Let Us Do Whatever We Want? Place your first argument first. Good luck!!!


I would say it would be beneficial for the overall youth to experience freedom at a young age. Many children who are growing up being told what to do, how to do it, and when to do it by their parents lack the essential personal growth skills that would be acquired if given the freedom. Not saying that your parents should totally abandon you to lolly gag, but to provide guidance. Then, with that guidance if you chose to accept to move forth with your actions - do so. It's one thing to tell someone not to do something but curiosity is a powerful thing; they will do it anyways so instead of having the barrier of conflict by going against your parents wishes, the parents should just allow their children to do as they please so long as there is a disclaimer before with advice.

Challenge HIM? You mean YOU, right? He's challenging YOU.

Well apparently someone wanted to challenge him. So please don't guess like you know what's going to happen. Thanks for being kind.

Who would ever take up the pro side? Don't start a debate with an obvious answer that no one would challenge.

Not really; just got to go on google or something and figure stuff out like i'm doing.

As long as we show that we're responsible, and we're of a legal age, then sure. While I don't think this counts as a truism, it's difficult to debate as Pro.
