Should Teens be punished just for bad grades?

Asked by: NATE_Z
  • Yes. These are their formative years

    Teens need to be disciplined.
    'Punish' could be vastly subjective.
    If Teens don't realise this now, by the time they do when they are adults, it would be really too late.
    They would not value or handle the repurcussions of a lost opportunity during their earning span if not disciplined.

  • Yes - teens need discipline.

    Although a teen will never use 90% of what he learns in school, that does not mean that he can flunk of out school. School teaches a person responsibility and discipline - grades reflect this, along with a person's effort and commitment. That being said, if a teen is not doing well in school, then he should be punished; he must have a strong mental foundation so that he can grow up "properly".

  • Oh Most definitely!

    Grades, on of the aspects i execrate most about the education system. What should be a harmless progression indicator, has ironically become the delineation of how economically & financially "successful" we will become, or what levels of the system we can excel, as our parents have become slave, so must we follow. Should we be punished for our grades, depends on if the people holding our whips know why they really castigate.

  • They should not

    Just because they have bad grades doesn't mean they should be punished you can push them but don't make them that's wrong wjdfiupfbfefhehferh hde u2eb uehuie ajbabx jBXKJb jsbxksb hKKHS KHXHKSBXS HSXHaxhjx HXBHxbba KABHKabhx HAxhXAXAAx kAABXHBAX KHbxbzxb Kbaxhabxh kJXBHSKBX Hbxjhab kaxbhB JHxbhSX Khbxhkb Hxb hBXxb jBX Kjbsx kBX Kjabs jsb

  • Punishing them motivates students to do better next time.

    Students should be punished for their bad grades. When a little kid hits his little brother do you think he should be punished? Of course he should or else he will never learn that it's wrong. Same with getting bad grades.
    If you have never gotten in trouble for a bad mark on a test you'll learn that you can get away with it and you will keep repeating the same mistake. Have you ever wondered why Asian students seem to do so much better accedemically? It's because of parenting. Their parents have actually realized that punishing the child for a bad grade will make them do better next time. Unfortunately most other parents have never discovered this or they are too afraid of destroying their child's self esteem.
    What it really comes down to is the choice between want your child to become confident and smart or wanting your child to grow up in a sheltered home with no protection to the real world.
    Anyone can challenge me on this if they want.

  • There parents should punish them

    If a teenager is failing school, they should be punished by their parents. They need to be taught a lesson, so they don't throw away their lives. Grades are extremely important, espically in High-School. The parents should talk to the ortake away their phones until their grades improve. Sometimes a good spanking teaches them a lesson!

  • Teens shouldn't´t be punished

    I don´t think that teens should be punished, because its only a bad grade. It probably doesn´t even deal with anything in real life. So why should teens lose their phone or something just because of a F on a stupid history test. They should punished for things that deal with real life.

  • No they shouldn't

    Teens have it rough, middle school and high school is pretty challenging and with so much class work, homework, tests and quizzes. It's just too much! It gives teens lots of pressure because they have so much work to do from 6-7 different teachers. Oh yea and I forgot to mention PROJECTS omg they are worth like half of your grade. Very very stressful.

  • Fear on the punishment won't ever promote the interest on academics.

    If the ultimate goal is the better grade and what's more the better future for the teens, punishment and chastisement would be a completely wrong approach to achieve it. The only thing it will evoke in teen's mind is fear and negative reaction. And they will do whatever it takes to avoid the consequences and that will be all it can achieve - short-term reaction to short-term negative consequence. It would definitely raise grade temporarily because we all are weak at the face of fear. But it won't make them strong in front of all the challenges they may face when they find academics is way beyond the grade and grade was a mere remarks on their academic interest and excellence. Create positive reaction by helping teens realize learning is an extremely fun thing. Then grade will follow.

  • Definitely not! The system is ineffective and unjust.

    Many people argue that punishing adolescents for acquiring poor grades is a way to motivate them to push farther. But it doesn't necessarily mean it's the best or right way to do so. Each child irrevocably has a unique way of thinking and learning pace. They may just be naturally bad at scoring high grades because the system of the school is not the right one for them. It doesn't suit them and cater to their needs. Punishing the teenagers for bad grades may drive them to endeavor to do better, but only in fear. This prevents them from creating an inherent desire to learn for the sake of learning. And if it's not coming from within, it's not mentally healthy. Grades are only the result of taking tests, not learning.
