Should teens under 18 have more legal rights?

Asked by: Fanny
  • Rights and responsibilities go together.

    Teens under 18 should have more legal rights.

    Unfortunately for them, rights and responsibilities go together.

    Teens under 18 should also be treated as adults by the legal and prison system.
    Teens under 18 should be working to help support themselves and their families.
    Teens under 18 who can not succeed in the artificial world of public school should be kicked out of school, and stop wasting everyone else's time and money. There are lots of low end jobs that need workers. If this is all they have the training and work ethic to accomplish, it is a beeter education than wasting school resources.

    I wish all our teens under 18 were so responsible that there was no question about treating them as full adults. As it is, society is afraid to give them rights, because we are unwilling to let them suffer the harsh results that would likely result.

  • Yes they should have more rights

    Even though some do bad things with there lives that is their choice to do whatever it is that they want to do. It doesn't matter if it is bad or good as long as they limit themselves and make sure they have more responsibilities to go along with the rights

  • Minors should have more rights

    We are treated as menaces to society and not as people. Teenagers in schools are treated as children and not given the proper respect we should. The rights we already have are rarely forced and if they are its usually the opinion of the adult over the teen. We are not treated as people in divorce courts and don't usually get asked what house we want to stay in.

  • They need more

    Because even kids who are 18-24 are considered adolescents and have an undeveloped brain. Kids who are those ages have more rights than us and it's super unfair. The reason why we have teen pregnancies and drug addicts is because we do not adequately educate our children, instead, we hinder teens and shield which leads to rebelling. Teens can have sex if they are educated about it and parents should not have a say. It's their body. Just not with people older than 18.

  • Adults have a prejudice against teens

    Adults think that we are growing up in the same conditions they did and they don't understand us because they're old foagies. Society just has it out to control us out of some fake fear that we're all deviants and if parents want to give us more responsibilities we want more rights.

  • They have too many rights as it is

    Teens now are getting into sex, drugs, and have already been custom to violence. What they need is to have boundaries instead of letting them make themselves regretful later in life. They have enough freedom, why need more? I see kids lighting up dubies behind schools and churches and some of them don't even attend school.

  • They have enough

    Minors need to be protected from themselves, they have enough rights as it is. While their freedom of choice is somewhat restricted, that's done with good reason, and it's to keep the stupid decisions that every teenager that has ever lived makes to a minimum and not harmful to them.

  • They already have too many

    Teens are still developing in many ways, it is not until the mid-twenties that the brain even reaches full maturation. Teens need protection and education and supervision to keep them safe while they learn the skills they need to be successful in life. Teens are not ready to make many of these decisions.
