I personally think that there should be support groups in highschol because the average child is not going to talk to their parents about about peer pressure, or other things that is going on in their lives.

I would like to thank my opponent for making this debate.

I await my opponent's affirmation, definitions, and supporting information for her affirmation.

Affirmation - an affirmation is a statement you are trying to debate for. Usually done in the "I affirm that _Topic___of___debate" format. In this case your affirmation would be I affirm that support groups should be mandated for every school to assist stressed out students who don't feel comfortable talking to their parents."

Definitions and Explanation: Here is where you should define what you mean to be support groups, who they will consist of, will it be anonymous, will the support groups consist of adults or students, will it be a paid position or will it be volunteer to be in the support group, etc.

Supporting Information - This is where you would include reasons why the student might not want to talk to the parents, guidance counselor, close friends, community help centers, local religious leaders, etc. and why such a support group would be beneficial. By including such information, I, the con in this debate, will have a chance at arguing against your reasoning and providing strong counter points to dis-affirm, or disprove your contentions/supporting info.

Thanks and good luck on the debate!
