Teenagers should not be given freedom . In my opinion , I think that the more freedom teenagers get , the more harmful the effects get . What I meant by 'harmful effects' is , we don't know the possibilities of what teenagers are capable to do . For example , teenagers might use the advantages of freedom to do foolish stuffs including vandalismes , bullying , skipping school and even worse , criminal acts .

Teens need to be able to make their own decisions and to be able to learn how to function in the real world, the only way they can be able to do that is if they're given freedom.

Many teens would go on to do great things after they become independent. Not all, but most.

And for my closing statement, i feel all teens need to experience the world for themselves. Not have someone tell them descriptions, simply because they might do something someone will not agree with.

Teenagers will do what they want regardless of your opinion on it. If you take away their freedom they will rebel with full honesty and then your own laws automatically make them criminals. Teenagers are not as timid and accepting as adults. The moment you try to pass a law like that half of the young population in the country is going to riot.

Darn. I was interested in this one. Don't start something you can't finish. It would have taken 5 minutes to at least post something.
